The Daily Telegraph: a refined newspaper

Was it really necessary, Daily Telegraph, to accompany the report of Stuart Cable's inquest with a boxout of 'other rock stars who choked on their own vomit'?

And was it really appropriate to start that boxout with a giggling reference to how it was parodied in Spinal Tap? An inquest into the death of a real person who, clearly, was loved by a lot of people, isn't really the place to start laughing 'hee-hee, it's just like that funny movie', is it?
