I’ve just kicked the lid off the Fame Games - Talent Bank - and guess who I found lurking inside --- All Day Sucker. I found a song called Santa Ana - which I love because you’re sounding a little bit Steely Dan!
And now a quick shout out to Brit band…Sunbox…who this week sent me a great pic of themselves dressed as The Cure - god know why. But thanks guys - you look as good as you sound.
So check it out - check it out - American Idol really hit its stride this week with Motown as its theme. As the singing oil rigger finally got voted off we got to see Stevie Wonder and Joss Stone perform. But I was kinda happy to welcome back season two winner Ruben studdard - wearing what looked like pyjamas.
And my Idol scoop? Next week …the contestants will sing songs from the I Tunes Top 100 - so… expect lots of Lady Gaga and Britney Spears...Oh lordy…
Old popstars never die they just make comebacks. The scary news this week is that 80’s New Romantics Spandau Ballet are to reform - but Spandau join a long list of proposed comebacks including Simon and Garfunkel and Brit band Blur who are also to reform this summer and jump a board the lucrative tour bus - or is it bandwagon.
So I couldn’t help but wonder….are all these comebacks good for the music biz or is just easy money for the record labels?
