Amy Winehouse on the precipice wings unable to spread!

I was uncomfortable reaching for the bottle of wine with Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) sitting next to me at dinner in Los Angles. Richard sensing my discomfort nodded his approval. “Richard, what kind of drugs did you guys do?” I asked, “we did fucking everything”, Richard also confessed that he was grateful to have been given a new lease on life and is amazed that he was still alive and what a blessing to see his children grow up. Similarly when dining with David Bowie at what is now AGO in Los Angles, David commented to one of my questions and said “Those years Tim are just a blur!”. Many people battle demons, and that oh so negative of a term addiction. Some like Ringo, Bowie, Manzarek whom I have known win the battle and live to experience a tear from the eye, a flutter of the heart, create and are reborn. Some I have known equally talented can’t win, and loose it all.
Amy Winehouse her voice captivated me, I had written lyric for her in mind to record if she could only recover, I marvel at the beauty of the human voice that can touch a heart, and Amy Winehouse had a voice that could do just that. In life Amy Winehouse lived in silence. Everyone could see a talent wasting before one’s eyes, but what was Amy going through. Did Amy Winehouse see the silence as infinite, fathomless,terrifying, death-defying, mind blowing, a swoosh of blood through the body, like the visual effect of a Rothko painting? No! Amy Winehouse was a girl who could not find the lead in her pencil even with a Swiss Army knife. The silence to her was blur to the sense of time, where the dark swallows the light. She stood on the precipice unable to spread her wings. In death as the Italians say, “lasciare che il vento che parla é il paradiso”. May you find your paradise.

William and Kate the power of love du Canada

My grandmother in her vibrant sari and HRH Queen Elizabeth II in her summer white introduce the first official trip abroad of William and Kate to Canada.  “I suppose our grandsons are enjoying Canada in the summer?” comments HRH, to which my grandmother responds,” You think William and Kate will get bored of the food and want some curry?”.  Asian fashion fusion has been going on for ages since the British discovered the great riches of India and Catai. It would be only appropriate to compliment this page with “The Power of Love”, by a great Canadian singer Cleane Dion. Soon you will be introduced to some of the creative chefs of Toronto and what they would have prepared if William and Kate had visited Toronto. The adventure of life, love, discovery, and a jolly good time never stops on My Name is Khan.

Boyancé lays her mac down in Central Park!

In a city that never sleeps is perhaps the most famous park of all Central Park. The aroma of Central Park on any given day can be the that of fresh cut grass, popcorn, cloves, cotton candy, hot dog on a grill, manure, and apple cider to name but a few. In the midst's of these aromas is none other then the talented classy lady Boyancé. The free summer concert drew massive crowds that had lined the streets from early morning. But then who sleeps in New York, it's where one can get anything, anytime. There is no place on the planet like it, and no one can come close to being it. Boyancé will soon be directed by one of my favorite directors Clint Eastwood in the film "A Star is Born", this should be a cake walk for Boyancé. The party never stops as My Name is Khan never sleeps.

The music business would be nothing if it was not for the fans. So all I can say is don't rip these loyal fans who sit in the streets all day, and wait to see the recording artists they adore. Because if you do, these tech- savvy fans will turn on you and you will have nothing to sell. Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, and all those present gave these deserving hard core fans what they deserved. It was a party  Queen Street rocked, and Lady Gaga rocked off. Need I say it, you can't stop the party on My Name is Khan.
