Music Watching Pop Idol for the first and last time the other night (awful, just awful -- I hope Darius bloody wins just to demonstrate what a pointless exercise the whole thing is) I was reminded once again of the fragility of the music industry and how really anyone with a bit of talent could have a go (yes that means you Babybird). Which is why I can't help but smirk that Jonathan Maitland, the consumer rights journalist (pre-Campbell watchdog) has had a song shortlisted for The Eurovision Song Contest. Neither can he: "I certainly get more enjoyment from playing in a band than I do from TV. Unfortunately I am a crap musician and don't think a career in pop is likely."
