It seemed that every album poll in the world had Sgt Pepper (50 years in June) as the greatest ever, by anyone. Now it seems that a bit like Lennon’s joke about the best drummer in the Beatles, it’s not even their best album.
You’d have to go a long way to find someone less interested in tennis than me, but my attention was drawn to this item on today’s BBC Sports site, about a game played today:
“Before this Australian Open final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal even began, it felt like the Beatles reforming in 1979 for a one-off gig. When Federer’s forehand finished it, deep into the Melbourne night, it was as if they had released a new Revolver too.”
