McCartney told the invited audience as he and his fine band took to the Playhouse stage last Thursday afternoon. "That's my story and I'm sticking to it!" He and one of the best rock line-ups I've seen for some time then proceeded to thrill the crowd with a 90-minute set spanning his entire career - from "Can't Buy Me Love" to "This One". "Anyone here from Liverpool?" He asked half way through. "Manchester!" Yelled a fan. "Oh well, at least you've got your health."

The Performing Rights Society's John Lennon Award for songwriting will sit on nobody's mantlepiece this year. This year's panel of judges - which included Lennon's biographer Ray Coleman and Beatle producer George Martin - felt unable to recommend anyone for the award because of the "disappointing standard of entries."
