Cover the News? Dana Carvey IS Gonna Do It

Sitting on the couch and talking to Howard Stern can bring out surprising anecdotes and laugh-out-loud (or LOL for Millennials) laughter from his guests. That’s the shock jock’s gift. And Howard’s recent guest was SNL great Dana Carvey.

Things got very funny. Although, that wasn’t a surprise given the hilarious guest.

Dana Carvey is not only a brilliant celebrity impressionist and comedian, but he has an old school, Jay Leno-like approach to addressing the biggest, most serious news stories of the day with sharp yet good-natured punchlines. That’s it. Well, it’s not quite that simple, considering the immense talent it took to create unforgettable characters like Church Lady as well as impersonating the late former President George H.W. Bush.

So what are the Beatles — specifically one with us and one no longer with us — up to these days when it comes to understanding top news stories? Dana’s got an entertaining take on that.

But how would Garth from ‘Wayne’s World’ explain the news?

You know what, we’re not worthy.

Beatle Crossing

Why did the Beatle cross the road Abbey Road after 49 years?

To get to the other side…to perform a concert nearby as a promotion for his forthcoming album ‘Egypt Station.’

Life is a simple stroll after a long and winding road.

Happy Monday!

Wow.

Well done, Sir Paul McCartney. And well done, James Corden.

Simply amazing!

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

“The Voices” of Empty “Idols”

The video below generally sums up the feelings of us who are not fans of singing competition shows like, “American Idol” and “The Voice.”

We don’t need future musical “idols.” We need singers and bands that are a combination of musicians, performers and storytellers who start from the ground level in a garage or music room in a school and work their way up to as big a venue as fans demand. This is a process that takes years and years of dedication, endurance and dealing with a variety of struggles in the real world of music, not weeks on a television show.

How can you distinguish between great bands/singers and competitors on, “The Voice” and “American Idol?” You can hear it in their voice.
