Brian Eno adds ambience to adolescent angst
Nick Clegg, the new leader of the UK's Liberal Democrat party, has recruited Brian Eno (above) as an adviser on youth problems to help him fix Britain's "broken politics". Good news; because not only is Eno a respected contemporary musician, he is also 59. I can now look forward both to the Liberal Democrats winning the next general election, and to Brian Eno conducting the Vienna Philharmonic's New Year's Day concert in 2031.
More on politician's musical tastes here and here.
