    Or Irish - I'd have thought that the name was a clue.Little Pixie Geldof, to give her full name (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixie_Geldof) is one of Bob Geldof's brats, along with Fifi Trixibelle Geldof and Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof (her half-sister Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof was adopted by Bob Geldof after Michael Hutchence's death). As you can imagine, a heritage like that is most likely to result in tabloid pseudo-fame, rather than any actual talent - which is why I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she can sing. Or at least, I think so...

    meh ... celtic lasses can usually sing, its genetic I think.

    On another note I saw Zak Starkey (Ringo's son) on drums with The Who a few years back and he wasn't half bad at all.

    Yeah - no question that Zak Starkey has talent: there can't be many people that have had had to turn down a tour with Oasis because the Who needed them.

    As for the singing abilities of Celtic lasses, I suspect that more of them think that they can sing than actually can - I've heard a verse or two of 'The Wild Rover' and the like from at least one which was almost bad enough to make me wish I'd never set foot in an Irish pub. (To be clear, when I say an Irish pub, I mean a pub where Irish people go to drink, as opposed to 'Irish Pubs' which are actually run by Australians, and which haven't seen the face of a sane Irishman since the day they opened - sadly, this part of London has a few of the latter, but if you know where to look, a good few of the former - if you are stumped, the trick is to look for a Catholic church, and then find the nearest scruffy-looking pub. Not infallible, but a good bet...)
