Soundstage with Kenny Chesney – August 4, 2008

Today I will talk about music. Kenny Chesney will be doing a PBS special on Sound stage this Thursday.  About two weeks or so ago,  part 1 and 2 of Stevie Nix playing on PBS (USA). Now I will reproduce a blog entry I created on March 20, 2008, entitled What’s True About Famous Singers. Now I will admit nothing, as I “see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.”

Before I reproduce this blog entry, I need to say some words about my music tastes.  While they are quite eclectic, my favorite music is classical.  Don’t be surprised to find that I listen to the renown US classical music station W.F.M.T., and also to the College of Dupage radio station.   But let me first share some trivia about Gilbert and Sullivan.  They couldn’t stand each other, and this lasted a lifetime.  But to make a lot of money – they could only be successful – if they worked together.  So much for trivia! Now I am reprinting this blog entry:

What’s True About Famous Singers :

  1. Stevie Nix recently ate at a restaurant in Geneva, Illinois. She is rehearsing a PBS special with Kenny Chesney.
  2. Paul McCarthy did a duet with Brian Wilson, from the Beach Boys, at a private dinner party.
  3. I spent a good amount of time with a gourmet cook, who went to school with Mick Jaggard, of the Rolling Stones. He was the cook on several tours, conducted by the Rolling Stones. This person also toured as a cook, with other well-known groups and singers.
  4. A person I knew, who was an Elvis impersonator, called up the management of a concert auditorium. He asked to reserve some tickets for an old army buddy to see his concert. The person got the tickets free of charge.
  5. John Denver was wandering by himself, in a Chicago bookstore, when a friend of mine engaged him in private conversation.
  6. Mick Jaggard doesn’t drink or smoke, has a rigorous daily exercise routine, and is a vegetarian.
  7. Paul McCarthy likes his staff to smudge (burn sage) before he commences a concert.

Which of the above is true? Well, I really won’t say (even if I did know).
