This week just gone

As ever, we bring news of the last seven days on No Rock and Roll Fun.

The ten most read individual stories have been:

1. Jo O'Meara's comeback crumbles as she bullies on CBB
2. Does close textual analysis prove K T Tunstall is gay?
3. Heather Mills nudity continues to drive people to fire up Google
4. McFly should try releasing a book of themselves in their boxers
5. It's not actually Lily Allen naked, you know
6. Fall Out Boy sobs over artistic vision shattered as album leaks online
7. We wish we'd never heard of Heather Mills McCartney naked
8. Brandy "to blame" in crash which killed
9. Jo O'Meara's fans rally round in her hour of need
10. The parody site which hasn't quite got a grip on parody lists "gay bands"

The big musical event of the week was Midem, where at least a few music industry execs started to realise that digital music isn't going away. Meanwhile, Bono cynically offered Tony Blair another photo op; Sham 69 split into two separate bands, while The Jesus and Mary Chain and James settled their differences.

You can read the whole week on one page or
cruise the week before in a single post.

and we gleefully pushed these items in your direction...
