Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame... (etc.)
Next week sees the release of the 39-track double CD: UK MUSIC HALL OF FAME. You may have already seen the ad on Channel 4 which slowly scans across a montage of artists featured on the programme, and which includes a snippet from the Mick Rock video of the track.
As I told you a couple of weeks back, (10.24.2004 REMINDER: VOTE FOR DB IN TONIGHT'S UK MUSIC HALL OF FAME) DB is one of the artists shortlisted for the 70s nominees and he is represented on this compilation by the Hunky Dory classic: Life On Mars?
A finale show will be staged at the Hackney Empire in London, when all the winners will receive their inauguration into the UK Music Hall of Fame, during a ceremony which will be shown on Channel 4 on November 14 2004.
