Today, as happens from time to time, Gordon has a cracking story. Not, perhaps, so cracking that it justifies the 300-odd days a year when he doesn't, but it's only fair enough to applaud today's mind-warping story about Bob Geldof hearing the news that Peaches was getting married.
What makes it such a strange tale is who he was with:
Not only that, his dance partner was the man who discovered OASIS, godfather of cool ALAN McGEE. And the choice of music? Er, High School Musical. Shameful.
A source said: “Sir Bob took the call from Peaches on a holiday with Alan."
Alan McGee? On a package tour with Bob Geldof? The same Alan McGee who was poking fun at Kevin Shields for his nostalgic cabaret?
And, the story is topped with a cracking headline, too:
Fair enough. That's worth reading. Let's hope it's the start of a golden era of Alan McGee related gossips.
