Well! This morning on the radio I heard an interview between the hosts and one of the nobody comperes from Australian Idol. They were trying to arouse interest in the upcoming Brisbane auditions.

Inevitably, the question was asked why Idol excluded people older than 28. The reply was that if someone hadn't realised their dreams of pop stardom by 28 they ought to consider a different career!

The irony was that only a few weekends ago, I'd heard Paul Hogan, on the same station (but on Saturday morning) proclaiming how he was the luckiest man alive. His take on his career was that there were plenty of people who could do what he does - he just happened to have been in the right place at the right time!

Of course, he was being a little too modest, I suspect, but I agree wholeheartedly with his point. I know plenty of extremely talented people who've simply never been given the break they need. Another classic case in point is Pete Murray - he's my age and has only had a hit in the past year ... incidentally, I hate the few songs of his that I have heard. "So damn pretentious" about says it all.

Anyway, this has made me all themore determined to make a living fromthis calling. With or without hits, Australian Idol, whatever. I'm gonna show those smug bastards what enduring star quality looks like.

Well, what can I say. Maybe it was Pete Murray who replied to this blog. Try to be a bit nicer.

Not to mention all those ol' blues guys who got famous after they got dead. Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Robert 'Crossroads' Johnson, and (most famous of all) Rufus 'Blue-nails' Waterford (named for the tricky pickin' style he mastered during his open-air tour of the Alaskan Penal system, 1937-1949 (with good behavior)).
