A VAN WALKS INTO A PUB. OH, NO HE DOESN'T: The pub owner who claims Van Morrison's non-appearance at a gig wrecked his business has won GBP40,000 in compo. Gary Marlow told the courts that after Van didn't appear at the Crown Hotel in Wiltshire, takings slumped from GBP25,000 to just GBP7,000 a month. We're sure that he has paperwork to back up his claim, but we're not sure how there not being a fat, grumpy bloke in the corner one night would have had such a detrimental effect on the business month-by-month; in fact, before we set foot in any pub we usually ring ahead to check that Van Morrison isn't in there.
