  1. Excellent piece. Renewing the theme of Rock music and High Gothic Revival did you see the Kensington kerfuffle regarding William Burges's Tower House now owned by Jimmy Page who is in a battle with his neighbour Robbie Williams? Williams aims to dig out a subterranean pool in doing which he may damage Page's exotic residence. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5849983/Jimmy-Page-reveals-treasures-works-art-says-Robbie-Williams-putting-risk.html

  2. Yes indeed – an unseemly business. This sort of thing wouldn't have happened in Billy Burges's day – but it goes to show that Victorian artists were the rock stars of their time.
