Eric Clapton Asked Permission to Steal George Harrison's Wife (And 6 Other Things I Learned from the HBO Documentary)
While the film doesn't reach the sublime heights scaled by the director's Bob Dylan movie, 'No Direction Home,' it does paint a moving and nuanced portrait of the guitarist, songwriter and spiritual seeker, who succumbed to lung cancer on November 29, 2001. But you don't care about that: You want the facts! So here they are -- all seven of them.
It will be Dylan's fifth appearance at the Grammys, and organizers said he will perform with up-and coming young Brits, Mumford & Sons, and folk-rock band the Avett Brothers, in a special salute to acoustic music.
But it won't be all folksy Sunday night: Get ready for Dr. Dre's first live television performance in more than 10 years. The rapper will be performing in a "special collaboration" with multiple nominee Eminem and Maroon 5 front-man Adam Levine.
In the interview, the 1960s-era bombshell discusses some of the many men she's had relationships with, from Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan to Dean Martin to Burt Reynolds.
Watch the video after the jump.
As with the first soundtrack, the music will be used in upcoming episodes throughout this season.
Of special note on 'Volume 2' is the track by Bob Dylan. For the first volume, he contributed the song 'Things Have Changed'; but this time around, Dylan's giving the show -- and his fans -- something entirely new. To coincide with the soundtrack's release, the Nov. 3 episode will feature the Dylan original 'California,' which is an unreleased track from the 'Bring It Back Home' sessions.
She's at first drawn back to Janet and Roger and the old ways. Because she's still perturbed by the business card she found in Bruce's pants from the Playboy Club, the one from Sylvia suggesting a get together, Susan drags her family to Sunday services for a little God-time. Impulsively, when chatting with Janet, Susan announces that she's having a housewarming and wants Janet's help. It's like she's clinging to a simpler past.
OK, maybe I'm stretching here, considering that we are TV Squad, but it's Sunday, and the bar is lowered, right? Anyway, the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" scene from D.A. Pennebaker's documentary, Don't Look Back, is one of the most iconic pieces of music video ever created. To promote the upcoming release of Dylan, a greatest hits album, the marketing team has the clip set up so you can insert your own words on Bob's famous cue cards.
Someone called Antonio had the thought to insert the opening from Battlestar Galactica. Unfortunately, they stopped short of letting you embed the video somewhere else, so you'll have to run over to dylanmessaging.com to see the video. It's short though, so you have plenty of time to do that, and then get back here for Jay Black's liveblogging of the Emmys. And if that's still not enough TV-ness for a post, let me add some obscure trivia. Long before Juliet did the Dylan cards on Lost, the second episode of Law & Order was titled "Subterranean Homeboy Blues." As a side note, I still think Law & Order was at its best all those years ago when it was Logan & Greevey.
However, Sanjaya doesn't just have his haters. He is loved by J.Lo, and backed by Howard Stern. And this week, even Simon Cowell didn't completely hate him.
While America may be split on Sanjaya, his hometown friends and family still love and support him.
Sanjaya's aunt, Christi Recchi, recently defended him against his critics, saying, "There are better ways to spend your time and energy [besides] bashing some 17-year-old kid who has been swept up in this whole thing."
Also in the Playboy interview, Cowell praised Idol's very own Kelly Clarkson, comparing her to "a young Aretha Franklin". Not surprisingly, Cowell said he preferred Clarkson's music to that of Dylan's. Meanwhile, millions of Dylan fans everywhere are asking themselves "Who the hell is Kelly Clarkson?"
Granted, this is a TV blog, but I've got to take a moment and thank the media gods for radio and printed matter. This kind of interview - two great artists from different fields meeting - doesn't happen as much as it should on television. In print, there's always BOMB Magazine. The entire premise behind the mag is to have two brilliant folks who may or may not have ever met get together for a sit-down interview.
Movin' Out received mixed, leaning towards favorable, reviews during its Broadway and out-of-town runs. Tharp won a Tony for her choreography, and Joel shared a Tony for its orchestration. This Joel-inspired outing hasn't been nearly as panned as Tharp's most recent take on Bob Dylan's catalog - The Times They are A-Changin'.
While the show has yet to be filmed by PBS, we can expect to see it on the air in the late winter or early spring of 2007.
In a world where music is becoming increasingly important on television shows, this could put the Wallflowers back on the map. They had a couple big hits a few years ago but haven't seen much mainstream attention for a while. Then again, he's a Dylan so maybe he's just doing what he likes and, right now, that happens to be Six Degrees.
