‘Every generation throws a hero up the pop charts.’
- Paul Simon

When you’re every inch the rock star
not many people need to be told your name
to know who you are.

That’s fame.

Wherever you go,
with your swagger and your sneer,
you cause a stir.

A hero? – I guess so, for some:
a generation threw you up the pop charts
quite a while


and now I read you’re up there again,
top of the pile,
with the fastest-selling vinyl
record for 20 years.

The fact that you sound a lot like Lennon
is music to my ears.

Lennon: now that’s a name.
The Beatles: now that is fame.
