BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN RUMORS & DWAYNE JOHNSON A HIT

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER
Story By: G. H. HARDING ****



“THE BOSS” IS BACK--- Is it possible that Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band could be releasing a new album before the end of the summer? The sources are less than concrete, but rumors of just that scenario are running rampant on the Springsteen fan site BlogItAllNight, as follows:


“I heard that Bruce Springsteen has finished recording his new album and it is now in the mixing stage. The best part of it all was that I was told it would be released this summer! It seems unprecedented for Springsteen to release a new album without a few months’ notice but after all, he is The Boss. As for what the album consists of, I was told it was very different from what Springsteen has put out before. So with my grain of salt, here is to hoping that this particular rumor is true!"


His last album, High Hopes (with the brilliant Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello), was among my favorites–and that’s a lot to say, as…

BILLBOARD CELEBRATES MADONNA'S 25TH FOR 'VOGUE'

Story By: G. H. HARDING ****



SHEP’S BACK --- To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Madonna’s “Vogue” reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, the venerable music magazine has reached out to the song’s co-producer and co-writer, dance legend Shep Pettibone, for—amazingly—his first interview in twenty years.


Back in the day, Shep was the go-to guy for all-things-remix, and his candid responses throughout this new interview are all terrific. He explains to Billboard that he has successfully stepped away from the business for a host of other projects—but for most, myself included, he remains a sorely-missed craftsman.


A man still of impeccable taste and gentle persuasion, his new interview makes for a very good read. Interesting fact: Pop artists, like Madonna, all loved working with him.

The Amy Winehouse Movie




CLASSIC END --- David Letterman’s final show Wednesday was stunningly classy . . . and funny! To the in-studio audience’s delight, the show’s final Top Ten List (Celebrity Top Ten Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say to David Letterman) was delivered in descending “10” to “1” order by: Alec Baldwin; Barbara Walters; Steve Martin; Jerry Seinfeld; a hilarious Jim Carrey; Chris Rock; Julia Louis-Dreyfus; Peyton Manning; Tina Fey; and Bill Murray. Everyone delivered their lines with precision and grace—it was just about perfect.


With some classic moments from their thirty-three years (!), including Andy Kaufman and Larry ”Bud” Melman reading Xmas carols to kids (still one of the funniest bits ever), the final show proved yet again how David Letterman not only changed the landscape of TV—he also smashed it to smithereens, just like that large TV he had his crew drop off the top of a nearby Manhattan building on one of his…
