"If the Independent on Sunday thinks that I, for one, am going to bother to buy a newspaper that simply regurgitates marketing puff as arts news, then it can kiss my wrinkly old backside".
And where does the opera singer air his lament? On a website that simply regurgitates marketing puff as arts news.
