I remember that too. Surely it's simple maths that if you want to make successful pop music...you have to have an idea of what is currently popular? Yes, Peter and his songwriting team scored a hit with MG but since then PA gives me the impression that he loves performing,loves to think of himself as an artist...yet don't really some to give a shiney one about actual music that much???
I'm surprised to learn he doesn't listen to contemporary music, I thought he'd spent the last few years trying to be Britain's answer to Usher or Justin Timberlake
