Gordon in the morning: Placing bets on Mark Owen's solo career

Gordon this morning reports - complete with a confusing graphic - on Mark Owen's plans for a fourth solo album. A seasoned celebrity watcher like Gordon, of course, will have no problem predicting what will happen next:

History isn’t on Mark’s side but I have a sneaky suspicion he might just do it.

To be fair, that's only a slightly hedged bet.

Gordon applauds Owen's taste in music:
Mark also has impeccable music taste. PRIMAL SCREAM, STONE ROSES, OASIS, THE VERVE and a lot of small indie and rock acts are what he listens to when he’s not making grown women scream.

Smart doesn't say what songs he plays during those secret basement experiment sessions... oh, hang on. I see what he means.

It's funny, isn't it, these moments when Gordon reveals that he doesn't think much of most of the people he writes about, hankering after what he believes to be "proper" music... oh, why can't Lindsay Lohan date one of Kasabian, at the very least?
