Great correction in the Guardian today: "An interview with the Irish singer Gavin Friday included this quote: "And those hip-hop guys, they all have about 10 managers and 10 assistants, all with the black berets." On reflection, the writer realised that he had misheard and what he should have written was: "And those hip-hop guys, they all have about 10 managers and 10 assistants, all with the BlackBerrys." ('You can't be what you were', 26 March, page 6, Film&Music.)"
