THE LEGEND 'CLIVE DAVIS' GEARS UP FOR GRAMMY'S

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

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



SONY’S PASCAL DISMISSED --- After the horrific Sony-hacking episode last year, embattled Sony-head Amy Pascal announced yesterday she would be stepping down after a decade at the studio (in May) … moving onto to a producer-role within Sony.



I’ve known Amy for almost two decades and have found her to consistently be a forward-thinking and solid creative executive; actually one of the top three best in L. A. Sure, one gets cozy and things happen that perhaps shouldn't, but Sony is losing one terrific individual.



Sure, someone had to take the fall here, but this is a damn shame.



She’s enjoyed creative relationships with the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Bennett Miller, David Fincher, Aaron Sorkin and others who worked with her repeatedly and likely will cushion her landing into the producer role.



The stink of the hacks and those embarrassing emails will no doubt stick with her for awhile, but things happen. Those emails were personal … never meant for mass consumption.



Rumor has it she now works with four mobile phone with different names and passwords for each … and, that’s a shame.



The Interview was a misfire, but it was a gutsy creative call and her instincts have paid off many times over the years.



One memorable example is Moneyball. Pascal shocked everyone when, three days from start of production, she cancelled the film because Steven Soderbergh turned in a rewrite she felt didn’t resemble the film she’d green lit. Overhauled slowly by director Bennett Miller, it went on to become a Best Picture nominee.



Truth be told, I think anyone out there on the Left Coast would work with her in a nano-second.



LEVY UPDATE --- Manager Ken Levy called to clarify our comments Wednesday about his design for Clive Davis’ Grammy event this Saturday evening at The Beverly Hilton (he’s done About 15 of them over time): The invite’s copy actually starts with The Sound of A Classic, The Event That Has Become One…. The Night You Always Wait For.



Well done Mr. Levy!




MARLEY RETURNS --- Throughout history, no artist has so dominated the world of music as Bob Marley. A musical, political and even spiritual icon, a figure of almost mythical proportions, both poet and prophet, Marley was the first Jamaican artist to give voice to the struggles of his people and the Rastafarian culture, and the first to gain worldwide fame.



Today, Marley remains one of the 20th century’s most important and influential entertainment icons.



His lifestyle and music continue to inspire new generations around the world as his legacy lives on through his music. In the digital era, he has the second-highest social media following of any posthumous celebrity, with the official Bob Marley Facebook page drawing more than 74 million fans. Marley’s music catalog has sold millions of albums worldwide and his hits compilation, Legend, holds the distinction of being the longest-charting album in the history of Billboard’s Catalog Albums chart and remains the world’s best-selling reggae album.



The Marley family will honor the legacy of Bob Marley commemorating his 70th birthday milestone and his importance in the history of global music with a year-long celebration.



The first release on the schedule is Bob Marley & The Wailers – Easy Skanking in Boston ’78. The new package, of completely unreleased material available for the first time. The accompanying video for the release was shot with a hand-held camera by a fan that Marley allowed to sit right in front of the stage. The result is remarkable footage that captures the artist from just a few feet away, allowing one to experience the intimacy of his set.



Marley still stands as one of the giants of world popular music, with his untimely death at the age of 36 on May 11, 1981 in Miami from cancer complications, leaving us without one of the most revered and influential performers of the 20th century.



I actually attended his last show at NY’s Madison Square Garden and despite the intense ganga-atmosphere that truly permeated the show, it was one of the best live performances I've ever witnessed …. And, I sat next to August Darnell, aka Kid Creole. An astounding show ... It was so good, I've often wondered if I dreamt it!



CLOSING NOTES --- Dance Music lost one of its true pioneers this week, as S.I.N. Founder Vince Pelligrino passed this week following a courageous battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family.



All Access’s Joel Denver said, "Vince was an icon in the world of music promotion and marketing and did so much to advance the careers of countless artists. He was loved by so many in the music business, radio and of course the artists he worked with. He touched people's lives and made a true difference all during his long and successful career. He will truly be missed."



PR-kingpin David Salidor said, “I first worked with him during the mid-80’s and found him to be an excellent supporter for dance music as well as one terrific DJ. His energy, passion and excellence will be missed" ...



Interesting fact: comedian-Kevin Hart's recent sell-out at Madison Square Garden made him only the 6th comedian to do so. Amazing ...



Did you know that the legendary Earl's Court is London was demolished in December? Indie-rock band Bombay Bicycle Club was the last act to appear there and was joined onstage by Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour. What a sendoff ...

RINGO STARR AND PAUL MCCARTNEY ONCE AGAIN

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

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



GRAMMY DEAREST --- It was another old school vs. new school night at The Grammy's - their 56th broadcast - last night. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr sat front and center and were probably as bemused as most of the crowd, there and at home, by the rather bizarre performances from Katy Perry, Lorde (who did win Song of the Year), and even Pink; whose become known as much for her aerial abilities as for her singing. Dangling high above the cavernous Staples Center as she sang; I couldn't help but wonder what safety provisions were being employed. I mean, it’s commendable, but is it safe?



Teen-sensation Hunter Hayes was impressive, but seemed much too young and much too green to snare such a key-performance slot. Jay Z and wife Beyonce opened the show with the latter’s “Drunk In Love.” It was suggestive; somewhat repetitive; but, an opening act?



Director Ken Erhlich went with the staging where there’s a hub of so-called fans (hired?) surrounding the stage area. It’s been use by everyone and I'm kind of surprised he employed it again. Surely, there’s got to be something new by now.



A definite highlight was the combined talents of Chicago with Robin Thicke. Chicago’s professionalism was no match for Mr. Thicke; a close listen shows he was singing a bit off-key along with Chicago’s Robert (Skinny Boy) Lamm. Funnily enough, it was announced that the group’s very-first album Chicago Transit Authority (April 1969) has been elected to the Grammy’s Hall of Fame; not sure what that means, but the honor was long overdue.



New Zealand-sensation Lorde performed her “Royals,” which went on to win Song of the Year. Was her performance somewhat freakish, or was I missing something. Maybe this year’s Sinead O’Connor? Her real name is after all Ella Yelich O'Connor.



Nile Rodgers, who has been a pivotal force in the business for years (Chic, Sister Sledge, David Bowie), re-emerged this year with his work with the French-robots Daft Punk with Pharrel Williams. His Random Access Memory won for Album of the Year (“Get Lucky” won for Record of the Year) and the performance with Stevie Wonder (where "Lucky" segued seamlessly into Wonder’s “For You”) was without question the musical highlight of the year. It was the best use of Wonder I've ever seen and let me be the first to posit Rodgers doing an entire album with him. It would make perfect sense.



I've not heard their full album, but with talents like Giorgio Moroder and Paul Williams involved ... I really want to now.



Williams joked that "back when I was drinking, I would imagine things that weren't there and I'd get frightened. Then I got sober and two robots called and asked me to make an album."



"Captain Kirk uses the Enterprise. They sail on a ship called Generosity," Williams continued about the duo. "This is a labor of love and we are all so grateful."



That performance is what the Grammy’s should be about.



Ringo performed “Photograph” with an ad-hoc band led by bassist/producer Don Was and featuring guitarists Steve Lukather and Peter Frampton and drummer Kenny Arnoff. For the record: a great, great George Harrison song.



McCartney performed, with Ringo, “Queenie Eye” from the former’s recent New album. It’s a good song, not great and in retrospect a rather odd choice. Why not a Beatles' song?They came together at the end for the requisite hug. Unquestionably the emotional highlight of the show.



Sara Bareillis performed with Carole King. Another magical moment.



Actor of the moment Jared Leto appeared to give a tribute to the late-Lou Reed.



Also, Mackelmore & Lewis’ performance ("Same Love"), where 33 couples were married, by Queen Latifah and Madonna (looking more and more like Dolly Parton; cane and all!), another highlight. It was a good show, not the best I've ever seen, but a good one.



KING CAROLE --- Carole King was presented with the MusiCares Person of the Year Award on Friday in Los Angeles with a full night of her music performed from stars from all eras.



Among the many highlights of the night was Lady Gaga's performance of “You've Got a Friend” which Roger Friedman at Showbiz411 said "just blew everyone away with an intimate, throaty, bluesy version of King’s greatest song." Billboard also cited the pairings of Miguel and Kacey Musgraves on “Crying in the Rain” and Jakob Dylan and Louise Goffin's “Goin' Back” as being other highlights.



Also on hand were the four women that were the subject of the Academy Award nominated documentary Twenty Feet From Stardom, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill and Darlene Love. The four women performed "Way Over Yonder" from the Tapestry album. Overall, nine of the twelve tracks from that groundbreaking album were performed over the night with only the title song, “Smackwater Jack” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” omitted.



King, closed the night including a duet with James Taylor on a medley of “Sweet Seasons” and “Hey Girl.”



CLOSING NOTES --- Last night I took to Twitter to follow the Grammy's and enjoyed immensely the tweets from former L. A. Times journalist Ann Powers. She said at one point: Lorde will be 18 by the time this show is over! Hilarious …



How could NARAS' Neil Portnow have omitted The Monkees from Carole King's MusicCares dinner? We thought it was just Jann Wenner ... shameless! Micky Dolenz even put out an album of King's songs way four years back, called King For A Day ...



New York-nutritionist Sophia Aslanis told us that Super Bowl Sunday was the second biggest day of over-eating; second only to Thanksgiving ...



Congrats to our friend, the brilliant bassist Will Lee on being inducted into the Musician's Hall of Fame. I've known Will since the days of The Brecker Brothers Band. Well-deserved for sure...



February 9 is 50th years since The Beatles arrived ...

KENDRICK LAMAR GRACES JET MAGAZINE COVER

Kendrick Lamar




Award season is in full swing. In celebration of the new direction, JET magazine breaks with tradition to feature the young, talented and critically acclaimed rap artist Kendrick Lamar — who has seven Grammy nominations for his latest album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City — on the cover for the Black History issue.



“I always seen [JET magazine] every time I walked into the house,” said Lamar. “It was always there. So I already knew that it had to hold some type of weight. Being a young cat, I had to know, since this magazine is right here all the time, it must be a powerful magazine. So it’s a privilege just to be a part of it, and for Black History Month, it’s a beautiful thing.”



The artist, renowned for delivering thought-provoking lyrics that center around social issues, shares the ways in which his passionate storytelling is impacting lives. In JET magazine’s exclusive interview, the hip-hop star reveals everything from his social responsibility to why the music industry needs more than good hooks and catchy tracks.



“Hip-hop plays a huge part in Black history,” says Lamar. “It’s bigger than music. Entertainers are actually leading a generation today as role models, whether they want to or not.”

'THE WRECKING BALL' IS BEST FALL PHOTO BOOK

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

LL Cool J




CHICAGO ARRIVES AT GRAMMYS --- The Grammy Awards always are look for a way to be a mix of today's music along with appearances from a number of classic artists of the past; just yesterday Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were announced as performers. Macca will have his band, and I predict Starr will come on with them.



Also announced were collaborations between Metallica and Lang Lang, Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder joining Pharrell and Daft Punk, and Chicago playing with Robin Thicke.



Amazingly, this will be the first time that Chicago has ever performed on the Grammy stage. Their album, Chicago Transit Authority, is being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this year. In addition, it is the first time Metallica has appeared on the Grammy's in 23 years.



Others who will perform include Katy Perry, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons, Pink and Nate Ruess of fun, and a special performance by Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton. LL Cool J will once again host.



It’s amazing to me to witness these so-called brilliant collaborations. With the state of the music business at an all-time low, the producers (and NARAS’ whiz-bang Neil Portnow) figure that if there was ever a time to front-load everything … this is it. But, in reality, these are many of the same old faces. I'd love to see something really creative, like The Monkees playing with Carole King and James Taylor, or Crosby, Stills and Nash, re-uniting with Neil Young.



The Grammy's are Sunday, January 26 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast by CBS.




THE STRAITS RETURN --- Dire Straits' Alan Clark and Chris White, with five hand-picked, world class musicians - Terence Reis, Steve Ferrone (from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), Mickey Féat, Adam Phillips and Jamie Squire – are set to perform at venues in the United States starting in late February as The Straits.



Dire Straits’ legacy is alive and well thanks to the musicians who made history with the band. Keyboard player and former Dire Straits member and producer Clark began the process two years ago in Rome. “Dire Straits' sax player Chris and I were having breakfast beside a pool one beautiful, sunny morning when I declared we were going to form The Straits,” says Clark.



Having been a part the hugely successful, multi-million selling Dire Straits, Clark was acutely aware of the huge responsibility they were undertaking, and the need to get it right. “So, next we needed a band. There was only ever going to be one drummer: Steve Ferrone, probably the best rock drummer in the world. We'd played together for some years when we were in Eric Clapton's band and he is godfather to my son and daughter. As for a front man, I'd always thought it would be impossible to replace the huge talent that is Mark Knopfler until I discovered the brilliant Terence Reis.



Next we needed a bass player, so Mickey Feat was recruited on bass,” adds Clark. “As for the additional keyboard player role, I watched Jamie Squire grow up - his family were neighbors of mine in a village in Northumberland - and develop into the amazing multi-instrumental singer/songwriter he is today. Suddenly we had a band, and what a band!"



Knopfler led the amazingly successful band Dire Straits which he co-founded with his brother, David in 1977.



After Dire Straits disbanded in 1995, Knopfler went on to record and produce seven solo albums; including the wondrous Sailing To Philadelphia, where he harmonized with James Taylor on the title track as well as dueting with Van Morrison. He has also composed and produced film scores for eight films, including Local Hero (1983), Cal (1984), The Princess Bride (1987), and Wag the Dog (1997).



CLOSING NOTES: Broadway’s Donnie Kehr and Tony-award winning actor Christian Hoff (Jersey Boys) visited the Stephen Sondheim Theatre last night to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Kehr is in director Clint Eastwood’s big-screen-version of Jersey Boys due in June …



The Backlist’s return to NBC Monday night (“The Good Samaritan”) was a bit offbeat for sure, but, boy does James Spader chew the scenery. He is, without a doubt, the best actor on TV right now,. Brilliant episode … and, the inclusion of Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around” didn't hurt either …



Just finished Robert Evans’ The Fat Lady Sang memoir; his follow-up to The Kid Stays In The Picture. What a book about Hollywood! If that scene fascinates you at all … give this a read. From Rosemary’s Baby to stories about Jack Nicholson and Roman Polanski, it’s a page-turner…



Great shot of Micky Dolenz and Charlene Tilton (Dallas) on the Internet from Monday's ALS benefit in L. A. ...



M. A. Cassata's Essential Cher Vol. was such a success on the e-book route, that she is preparing Volume 2. Find out more HERE....



Tonight at Gallery 151 in NYC, the new photo-book Bruce Springsteen In Focus 1980-2012, is properly launched with an unparalleled gallery collection of memorable and iconic Springsteen photography from a perspective only Deborah “Jersey Girl” Rothenberg could offer.



Selected by the Wall Street Journal as one of its “best photo books for Fall,” called “amazing” by the New York Daily News, this book is a must have all fans, chronicling The Boss from “The River” tour to “The Wrecking Ball” tour and many Jersey Shore haunts in-between. Through more than three decades of concert tours in national and international arenas and stadiums, as well as impromptu Jersey Shore club appearances, Rothenberg has created what the Hollywood Reporter calls “the ultimate look at a man who … is ‘always grinning’ whenever he is captured in his happy place - the stage.”



The book also has received major coverage from RollingStone.com, L. A. Weekly, and Sirius XM, among others. Expected tonight, recording artists Marcus Goldhaber and Dayme; PR-pashas David Salidor and Randy Alexander; among others. More on Friday …



Marvel's Ant-Man was always a favorite. Sure, a scientist who develops a serum to make him shrink to the size of an ant ... and, control them, may seem far fetched (and, it does!) ... but, the movie version, with Paul Rudd as the main character, has now locked in both Michael Douglas and Michael Pena. Visionary-director Edgar Wright will be directing and actresses Rashida Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard are also in the mix. Wow is an understatement.
