BEATLES TO STONES - IT'S TIME TO CUT FREE

BY TIM HALL

Leicester man Gordon Clarkson knows today's hairstyles are not what they used to be - he has been cropping barnets for 52 years.

At the age of 76, Gordon put down his scissors and comb for the final time last night, 52 years to the day since he beganhis career.

He has snipped countless Beatle cuts, bobs and short-back-and-sides, and has even treated a few people to a Tony Curtis.

But he says hairstyles started to go downhill in the 1970s when people started copying the cuts of the Rolling Stones.

"People started to let their hair grow long and messy and hairstyles were never the same after that," he said.

"Now they have gone the other way and are all short, but they all look the same.

"I used to enjoy doing the different, smarter styles. The only thing I really disliked cutting was the mohican."

Review: Blitzed!

‘Blitzed!’ is not high art, it’s not even particularly well-written, but that doesn’t matter. Trudging through ‘War and Peace’ is all very well but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of trash in one’s literary diet now and again.

The problem with ‘Blitzed!’ is that despite the promise of salacious gossip and Steve Strange’s relentless name-dropping, the book is a dull read.

Strange name-checks Boy George, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Michael Douglas, Mick Jagger and a handful of minor aristocrats. He was friends with Paula Yates in the twilight years before she died. He shares a birthday with Kylie and he knew Davina McCall when she was 16. He even lost his virginity to Jean-Jaques Burnel, the very macho bassist from The Stranglers who may be surprised to be outed in such a fashion in 2002.
