Prince Charles is a huge fan of Borat. William
and Harry set up a private screening of the
movie for him and he loved it, saying he
"couldn’t believe the Americans even
understood why it was funny”.
Old rockers never die. They just make
Christmas albums. This year Billy Idol goes
head-to-head with Rainbow's Richie Blackmore:
40 years ago, Blackmore founded Deep Purple
and gave us that rift from Smoke On The Water.
30 years ago, Idol was in seminal punk bands
Chelsea and Generation X.
Now Richie has released Blackmore's Night, a
selection of Christmas carols sung by the
pneumatic new Mrs Blackmore, Candice Night,
and featuring Richie on the lute.
Billy Idol releases Happy Holidays, a selection
of classics sung in a sub-Elvis blues drawl,
like Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bell Rock.
Blackmore's Night is Scientific Computing
magazine's top gift tip for Xmas.
