Ivor Novello winning songwriter Tom Odell talks about the "political insinuations" on his latest album, in particular a track which tells the story of an indulgent baby boomer and his son left to clean up the mess.
“[In the Seventies], music criticism was a blood sport,” says veteran critic Jim Farber. “The record companies would pay to send you across the globe to write stories and the writer could come back and type up the most vicious thing imaginable. Even the 1990s had its fair share of put downs. It was just accepted”
BRIT Award winning singer Tom Odell was stalked by an obsessed fan who turned up at his home and tried to contact his model fiancee, a court heard. Olga Moskaleva, 45, sent a string of postcards and letters to the singer-songwriter, in a campaign of harassment that began in April 2020 during the first national lockdown. One of the postcards was put through his letter box, and Moskaleva also left a book outside his home.
