Savoy grilling

Amy Winehouse, Jamie Cullum and chums rolled out of the South Bank Show Awards and straight into the American Bar at the Savoy ("a renowned haunt since the late 1890s" explains Victoria Newton, meaninglessly) and found a piano.

Naturally, they decided to sit around it hollering.

The paying customers didn't like it, and had them asked to leave.

Newton, of course, is making large eyes at the thought of "snooty old boys" and "crusty types" not jumping at the chance of a "free concert." But perhaps - since they don't rely on them to fill a gossip column - the "snooty old boys" were just music lovers who didn't have to pretend to like Winehouse and Cullum's look-at-me-mum denatured hint-of-jazz middle-of-the-road motorway service station stylings.

I read that too fast and thought you wrote Jamie Cullum was "middle-of-the-motorway". I can dream...

I heartily disagree that Cullum is middle-of-the-road as it suggests he is somewhere between good and bad. He should be the ultimate answer to the "why did the chicken cross the road joke": to get the hell away from some overrated shortarse whose songs soulnd like they've been produced by Wes Craven.
