      It's not deep, but there's some good footage!

        As you said, quite light-hearted, but very watchable." Here's Jenny, talking to a tree" !!! Nearly fell out of my armchair
        Everyone tear down your own little wall
        That keeps you from being a part of it all
        Because you've got to be one with the one and all
        You've just got to be close to it all

            Ha ha, Jenny & Nigel were great. The very picture of middle class respectability, and he's explaining how he got his LSD directly from Hoffman.

            Enjoyed the whole thing, but found the 'Small Faces invented Mod!' then 'Status Quo invented double denim!' then 'Desmond Dekker invented rude boys!' a bit wearing.

                Watched both episodes this weekend - Bennyboy is right, many daft pronouncements made in order to get an ipso facto - also, if you base your history around who you're able to get an interview with then you're in trouble. I had no idea that Suzi Quatro created the rock look nor, indeed, that she invented feminism.

                    Well, once Robert Elms and Stuart Maconie claimed every other genre as started by them, maybe that's all that was left for ol' Suze!!??

                      You're right. I'm not saying Suzi wasn't influential but, listening to her talk, I felt as if she were claiming the sum of human endeavour as something she came up with in her lunch time (presumably with the assistance of Mickie Most and Chinn and Chapman).
