It was good to see so many ‘ordinary’ people in the Honours list today, those who have helped so many others during this Covid epidemic with no thought for themselves, all very worthy recipients. Let us hope that this is the first of many lists recognising such contributions to society.
However, on a personal level, I was delighted to see that at long last Tommy Steele has received a knighthood. As a teenager I was a massive fan, as was my grandmother!
Many people seem to think he was just another pop star, but now aged 83, he is also a sculptor whose works are to be seen in Liverpool and London. He is an author, and has conducted the Philharmonic Orchestra. I believe he has both produced and directed shows and I think I read recently that he has just recorded an audio book. No-one could ever describe him as a one trick pony!
