Any day now. Nobby Clark, vocalist and founder member of the Bay City Rollers, tells me he expects to hear from his legal advisors in New York the bottom line on the never-ending wrangle on royalties for the Rollers. Lots of money involved, as you can imagine.

Says Nobby: “It’s been a see-you-in-court scenario for us seemingly for ever and we’re at the light-at-the-end-of-that-tunnel stage. We’ve hung on in there.”

Nobby hasn’t been twiddling his thumbs. He’s into a four-week stint hosting Backtracking for Castle FM and, of more import, he has virtually finished writing his autobiography.

“Seven years of my life as a Roller. So much to put on paper and it’s been a real buzz getting it all out of my system.”

Afterwords . . .

. . . chirpy Katherine Jenkins talking: “I love history and I have a photographic memory. It really helped with music sometimes when I can’t remember things that I can see on the page. It doesn’t always work. It doesn’t work with numbers at all.” I must get down to Scarborough Open Air Theatre. Katie’s there August 3 on her summer concert tour. She can’t make Edinburgh.
