What does Kitty have to say?


 


New Kennedy Center honorees

There oughta be a helluva after-party.

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has announced who will receive Kennedy Center Honors later this year. Included are Chicago bluesman Buddy Guy, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, and Dustin Hoffman.

Ballerina Natalia Makarova is also on the list, and I hear she can really belt one back. Actually I am not familiar with her but I'm sure she's a swell person.

The actual ceremony, which will happen in December and be aired on TV the night after Christmas, will probably be pretty stuffy. This is the gig where the honorees sit up in the balcony with the President and other dignitaries, and others get all sappy as they pay tribute to their heroes.

I'm thinking that Buddy Guy will have some pretty cool cats paying homage. I'm thinking Keith Richards will show up (and we might even be able to understand a word or two he says). Jonny Lang's been touring with Guy and has turned into quite the blues man, so he might get to do a song..and who knows what other blues luminaries might show up.

Led Zeppelin will probably be blessed by the guys from Green Day or Bon Jovi..or maybe Slash will put on his crazy big hat and pull off some Jimmy Page riffs. 

Paul Schaeffer will have to in attendance to honor his boss David Letterman, and Meryl Streep will probably use  her acting skills to honor Dustin Hoffman.

There could be an all-star jam at the end of the show, featuring Letterman on maracas and Dustin Hoffman filling in for Jon Bonham on drums...but despite my earnest wishes that probably won't happen.

The real fun will start at the after-party when Robert Plant starts dancing around on the couches in his leather pants.

U2 Unplugged
Rolling Stone Magazine got U2 to perform their new song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" acoustically--and it's pretty great! Maybe we should invite them to come in and play for us in Studio M!
World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
