well, we still have david bowie who I hear has recieved letters from the 
royal family themselves requesting him to be knighted but has repeatedly turned it 
down.  as for pete and clapton in the same line, hell, there's a photo of 
Jeff beck, clapton and Jimmy page standing in a row and these guys all passed 
through the yardbirds. I think that's a neat shot even though the queen is 
standing in front of them and has no idea who she's meeting. 

can I ask if roger is a charmer, why is that almost every story I hear of 
someone meeting roger, they say he's an arrogant SOB? either that or a "sexist 
pig"? ha.
