Marc asked: >>Now for the real question: who would >>make a prettier woman - David Bowie >>or Mick Jagger? While I readily admit >>that Mick Jagger may not be an >>attractive fellow, I've seen a picture >>of him in drag and was taken aback by >>the improvement. This is exactly the kind of question I spend a great deal of time not thinking about. I can only say that I've never met Mr Bowie, but on those occasions when I have encountered Mr Jagger in the pavilion at Lord's, he has been dressed sobrely in an ordinary sports jacket and tie (a brown, knitted tie last time, if I recall) and looked astonishingly ordinary and not in the least effeminate. But yes, I have seen the photographs and know what you mean. Disturbing, isn't it? I certainly envy those of you who have met with or even corresponded with Mr Wolfe. The friend I've been staying with in the States for the last couple of weeks has been a techincal organiser at various local and world cons and has met GW on several occasions. He described him to me as, "A typical midwestern guy - very pleasant and very polite, but not someone who suffers fools gladly. I always found him very easy and professional to work with." That sort of fits in with the other descriptions that people have given, doesn't it? >>And is there really an extra "ding" in >>Vanilla Ice's rip off of Bowie's Under >>Pressure? I couldn't possibly say. More anon. Nigel --
