TidBettes and Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes To KMB Band

Just have a few quickies to throw at you guys and gals! Seems there will be a few changes to the band line up for the Aussie tour and I won’t be too surprised if there are some changes to the show….adapting to the environment where one is playing, I suppose…:

  • Clifford Carter will be replacing Mr. Irwin Fisch on keyboards.
  • Sonny Emory will be back from the first leg of the tour .
  • Clark Gayton will be replacing Andrew Lippman on trombone.
  • Carla Duren (I believe she played a singer in “Maid In Manhattan” and I believe she has sung background for Kelis…send info if you know anything…) will be replacing Kyra Da Costa as a “Harlette.”

  • And Rachel from my longtime home state of Florida (before Tennessee) wrote to inform us all of an interview she heard with Barry Manilow. This is what she had to say (let the rumours begin!!!):

    Now, I have to tell you, that I was just listening to a local radio station here in Fla. 101.5 Lite FM and they had an interview with Barry about his new Vegas show and he mentioned how he just finished working with Bette on the Rosie Clooney CD and that he is going to be producing her new cd this year as well.”

    Okay…I would be happy with that. I think Mr. Manilow knows Bette’s voice and talent better than she does…LOL He knows how to frame her vocals and how to pull out the best in her. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it! 🙂 Nothing compares to Bette’s first 2 albums as a whole. However, I don’t want a Ms. Clooney sequel either. Here’s hoping that Bette does exactly what she’s been wanting to do without any major label interference.

    Now…is this project true? And is she still with Sony? Everybody keep your eyes and ears open wide!

    Thank you for this bit of intrique Rachel! 🙂

    Love, Mister D

    PS: And now a word from our President/King/Village Idiot -Take Your Pick! (Thanks Dana!) I have to say I didn’t understand all this Social Security hoopla, but W’s way with talking to the people “on their level”…why it makes so much sense to me now…..God help us!:

    The President explains the virtues of his Social Security plan, Tampa, FL, Feb. 4, 2005

    WOMAN IN AUDIENCE: I don’t really understand. How is the new [Social Security] plan going to fix that problem?

    Verbatim response:

    PRESIDENT BUSH: Because the — all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculated, for example, is on the table. Whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There’s a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those — changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be — or closer delivered to that has been promised. Does that make any sense to you? It’s kind of muddled. Look, there’s a series of things that cause the — like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate — the benefits will rise based upon inflation, as opposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those — if that growth is affected, it will help on the red.

    Scene: Mister D runs out of the room singing (screaming) “Laughing On The Outside (Crying On The Inside) ” And all is right with the world…PLEASE, PLEASE TAKE ME TO OZ WITH YOU MISS M! 🙂

    sweet dreams my little BLB’ers
