Gordon in the morning: Starsailor delighted to avoid Glastonbury

Phew, that was lucky, eh, James Walsh? Starsailor have effectively swerved the risk of playing Glastonbury:

STARSAILOR’s JAMES WALSH is pleased his band won’t be playing.

The singer says the huge stars the festival attracts makes it harder for smaller acts to get noticed.

James says: “Glasto is about headliners. Smaller acts often don’t even get a mention.”

Yes, with the three BBC TV channels, two radio networks, about six online music services and acres of pop press coverage, year-in, year-out, it's almost impossible for anyone other than the headline acts to pick up any mention at all.

Meanwhile, the charity celebrity mountain climbers have made it to the top of Kilimanjaro for charity. Even Cheryl Cole:
Cheryl said: “It has been, without question, the single most mentally and physically challenging experience of my life.”

And you know what? I believe her.
