Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV

While doing some research for a book I have in the pipeline, I came across this classic bit from George Carlin. It’s as funny now as it was in 1972 when George first blew people’s minds with it. Listen and prepare to laugh (but if profanity offends, then this definitely won’t be for you).

 

Don Peake & Michel Rubini

Here we have two illustrious members of the Wrecking Crew: Michel Rubini holding my book and the other fellow in all black is Don Peake. Flanking the two are Dede Harris and David Carpenter, the producers of the upcoming musical of The Wrecking Crew.

Thank you, Shirley Manson!

Here’s Shirley Manson, the dazzling, charismatic lead singer of the band Garbage,  in September of 2012 at the Roseland Theatre in Portland. Garbage used to be one of my music biz clients back in the day and they invited me for a visit in their dressing room before the show.

As you may know from checking out the back flap of my book, Shirley was kind enough to write a blurb for me. Take it from me, they simply don’t come any cooler than she.

The Sinatra Podium

“Didn’t I go and spoil it all by saying…”

Yes, this is the very podium where Frank and Nancy Sinatra sang “Something Stupid” (In Studio A at United Recorders) in 1966.

And, yes, the Wrecking Crew did play all the music on the song.
