In Showtime Network’s new Sunday-night series ROADIES, Luke Wilson plays Bill Hanson, tour manager for the long-lived rock band Seaton House. We don’t see that much of the band, as ROADIES, created by Cameron Crowe (ALMOST FAMOUS) focuses on the behind-the-scenes crew who make sure the show goes on, night after night, town after town. Bill always has his hands full with imperious management, underlings of varying temperaments, overzealous fans, balky equipment – and his own feelings for married coworker Shelli Anderson (Carla Gugino). Wilson previously costarred in two seasons of Showtime’s ENLIGHTENMENT, but his primary work has been in […]Read On »

Rock ‘N Rock was the theme at the Warner Bros. Pictures World Premiere of ROCK OF AGES held recently at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The black carpet was decorated with landmark signs from the famous Sunset Strip rock scene – The Whisky Ago Go, The Viper Room and the famous rock eatery hangout The Rainbow Bar and Grill, where a lot of these rock people still go to eat. The Whisky Ago Go being around the longest on the Strip have had many of the great groups play there – The Doors, Poison, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, […]Read On »

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Nov. 2, 2011 Not surprisingly, the world’s second, third, fourth, fifth greatest karaoke competition, THE X FACTOR, began with the obligatory recap of the “epic” last episode that had the judges eliminating their last few picks in order to make up the Top 12. Outside of the whole groups and old people being included on this show, I don’t see much of a difference between this and the other The Stereo Hogzz Song: “Rhythm Nation” by Janet Jackson What the judges said: […]Read On »

CD Review: Lindsey Buckingham – SEEDS WE SOW

Lindsey Buckingham - SEEDS WE SOW | ©2011 Buckingham Records

Distributor: Buckingham Records Suggested Retail Price: $9.99 When Lindsey Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974 (with Stevie Nicks), the end result was a transformation of a rock solid band into a pop music powerhouse. Buckingham was an expert and visionary musical architect who had a vision that not even the band probably fully grasped at the time and his contributions resulted in some of the finest pop songs ever (I defy you no to start singing along to “Go Your Own Way” when it comes on the radio). While Buckingham still tours with Mac, the band hasn’t released a new […]Read On »

Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Brad Falchuk Director: Brad Falchuk Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 24, 2011 Well we have at last reached the end of the second season of GLEE. This season had some really high points, and some horribly preachy overdone episodes, but all in all I try to just remember the moments that honestly were amazing. Following on the heels of last week’s episode “Funeral” (which was one of BEST episodes of the […]Read On »

The Dork Side: The problem with GLEE and its real “agenda”

I like GLEE. I really do, but, I have a problem with it, and I want you to know that I criticize it, because I care. Conservative pundits have been ranting about the supposed gay agenda the show is pushing, which is completely ridiculous. Of course, several media outlets ran with the story even though it’s total crap. There is no gay agenda. It’s just a TV show that treats its gay characters like actual human beings. “Gay people are people, too. Film at 11.” GLEE (which airs its Season 2 finale tonight) does a lot of things right. It […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “Three Finalists Compete”

AMERICAN IDOL: The Final Three: L-R: Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina | | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 18, 2011 There was a lot of pomp and circumstance on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, this week. Lots of looking back at the final three and how they got this spot, but one more has to go before the finals during Season 10 of this powerhouse series. So I’m skipping all that filler (since they boosted it to two hours this week) and going right to the heart of the matter – the performances. Beyonce was the guest mentor this week […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 2 – “Funeral”

Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Ryan Murphy Director:  Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 18, 2011 Characters should be the backbone of any TV series. They should move a series forward, they should connect with an audience and there should be some consistency in their actions as well. With GLEE in Season 2, it’s proven to be a topsy-turvy ride character-wise with random motivations, left-field personality switches and a heavy reliance on romantic pairings that […]Read On »

CD Review: Stevie Nicks – IN YOUR DREAMS

Stevie Nicks - IN YOUR DREAMS | ©2011 Reprise Records

Distributor: Reprise Records Suggested Retail Price: $12.99 One of the most fascinating aspects about singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks is how she not has masterfully managed to be both a co-frontperson for the band Fleetwood Mac and also have an equally successful solo career, with each sounding unique unto themselves. Her work with Mac and former lover/partner/bandmate Lindsey Buckingham was seeped in emotional angst, music that was a pop/rock hybrid elevated by Buckingam’s skills as a guitarist and sometimes producer for the band. Her solo stuff leaned more in the rock arena. It was always Nicks at its heart, but she always […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 2 – “Prom Queen”

Incidentally, if I could figure out what […]Read On »
