Could the Eurythmics be going on tour?
November 28th, 2022 under Annie Lennox. [ Comments: none ]

Sweet dreams are made of this (I still think it is these) for Eurythmics’ fans. Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox recently reunited when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And now it looks like their reunion will not be a one-night stand. That is because Mirror is reporting that they were offered $100 million to do a 40-date global tour.

As of now, they are early in talks about a tour and a possible album. So anything could happen.

Even though they have reunited a few times this century for one-off performances, they have not been on tour together since 1999.

So this tour would make their fans extremely happy. Are you one of them?

Duran Duran and Dolly Parton made it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
May 4th, 2022 under Annie Lennox, Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, Duran Duran, Eminem, Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced who is going to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this November, and Duran Duran finally made it in. The band will be joined by Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Eminem, Eurythmics, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, and Carly Simon.

Several of the inductees released statements about being admitted.

Annie Lennox wrote, “Well – @Eurythmics made the grade, thanks to every single one of our truly loyal ‘fans’! The appreciation goes to YOU! Much love from Annie and Dave! ❤️ 😎😎 Gangstas forever!!”

Pat Benetar and her husband, Neil Giraldo, said, “We are thrilled and humbled to become part of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame family. Thank you to everyone who voted especially the fans and congratulations to all the other inductees.”

Lionel Richie had this to say, “Being elected to @rockhall is an incredible honor. I would like to say THANK YOU to all of the voters, to all of my wonderful fans and to everyone at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Congratulations to all of my fellow 2022 inductees! #RockHall2022”

As of now, Eminem, Carly Simon (who is the second person from my hometown to be inducted because it is all about me), and Dolly Parton have not commented.

I can’t wait to hear what Dolly has to say. The legendary singer initially said she would turn it down. But on Monday, she said she would accept the award gracefully. Now that she is in, I am curious how she will react to it now that it is really happening.

And she deserves it because she inspired plenty of Rockers. However, I think that New York Dolls deserved to be in there over the Eurythmics. Annie Lennox deserves it as a solo act, but not with Dave Stewart and their band. New York Dolls dolled up Punk and Heavy Metal music by the way they dolled it up. They would wear their girlfriends’ clothes on stage, and it is a look that is still popular today. I know many people will disagree, but I think they meet more recognition.

UPDATE: Dolly Parton released her statement. If you want to see what she wrote, then click here!

BTWF: Hugh Laurie in Annie Lennox’s Walking on Broken Glass
April 7th, 2022 under Annie Lennox, Before They Were Famous, Lisa Edelstein/Hugh Laurie/House. [ Comments: none ]

Before Hugh Laurie was House, he was in Annie Lennox’s house! How funny was the 33-year-old in that 1992 music video for Walking on Broken Glass?

Don’t believe me, believe the legendary singer who wrote, “Hugh Laurie was absolutely hilarious…a natural comedian.”

I can go for Dayrl Hall’s cover of the Eurythmics
March 8th, 2022 under Annie Lennox, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

So many musicians have covered Hall & Oates songs, and now Daryl Hall is covering another duo’s song. Hall took Eurythmics’ Here Comes the Rain and made it his own.

How do the original band members feel about it? We know he got two picks up from Dave Stewart because he played guitar as Hall tickled the ivories. Pretty cool!

Well, to everyone but the two people they cheated on. I wonder how John Oates and Annie Lennox feel about this musical liaison. Now, I want to hear Lennox’s take of I Can’t Go for That with Oates strumming the guitar for her. I think we need them to do ASAP so we can reset order in the world.

The Grammys sweet dreams answered for The Beatles tribute!
January 6th, 2014 under Alicia Keys, Annie Lennox, Beatles. [ Comments: none ]


The Grammys announced today that The Eurythmics are reuniting for music’s biggest night of the year to pay tribute to the biggest band ever, The Beatles.
On February 9, 1964, the Fab Four played The Ed Sullivan Show and music was changed forever. Exactly 50 years later, The Grammys is airing and they have some of the biggest names in music singing the tunes of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star. Annie Lennox and her former partner, Dave Stewart, will get high off The Beatles’ hits with a little help from their friends Alicia Keys and John Legend, Maroon 5, and John Mayer and Keith Urban.
Sorry if this doesn’t seem like a sweet dream to me, but Ken Ehrlich’s tribute to 2/9/64 was such a bust at the Emmys that I have low expectations for this one. I mean are we going to go into every commercial break with some music legend singing a Beatles song. I like most people went through a Beatles phase and understand their greatness, but do people under 30 feel the same way? Their Beatles is Nirvana, and to be honest I am not sure they know their songs well enough to care to hear them performed at The Grammys.
And if you are going to do the tribute to The Beatles, then you are sure as hell better have Sir Paul, Sir Ringo, Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon, Stella McCarthy and the rest of the second generation doing something during the show. Otherwise to me the tribute is a complete bust.
Finally, whatever else Ehrlich has planned for the night; please don’t have Carrie Underwood sing Yesterday again because that was beyond painful to our ears. I love her, but I hated her rendition of the Macca song.
