The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is coming to HBO on November 19th

I normally hate the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The people I think who deserve to be there aren’t even nominated. However, this year, this Duranie is finally seeing Duran Duran get inducted along with Dolly Parton, Pat Benetar, Carly Simon, Eminem, and Lionel Richie.

As much as I love the Eurythmics, I don’t think they are as deserving as The New York Dolls, who were nominated but not inducted. Although, the latter’s acceptance speech would be sad because they are down to one member. Buster Poindexter might be Hot, Hot, Hot, but he would be lonely up there by himself.

Anyways, it’s not about my feelings or this year’s controversies like Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick criticizing the name of the Hall of Fame and asking not to be inducted, it about the inductees’ night.

That night is going to be November 19th on HBO. So mark your calendars because it is going to be a night to remember.

Duran Duran and Dolly Parton made it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

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!

Rehearsing for Carnegie with Tony!

A post shared by Carly Simon (@carlysimonhq) on


We know that Tony Shaloub can act, but did you also know that the Emmy-winner can sing and play the guitar? Today, Carly Simon shared a video of him performing her song It Was So Easy with her and some friends. The Grammy-winner revealed that they are rehearsing for Carnegie Hall.

They are getting ready for March 19th. That is when Michael Dorf will be presenting her music as performed by other artists like the actor. So far, they have announced some of the other singers and they are Indigo Girls, Darlene Love, The Bangles’ Susannah Hoff, Michael McDonald, and Natasha Bedingfield to name a few.

If you are in NYC, then this is a night you don’t want to miss.

Is Carly Simon really 74?
February 10th, 2020 under Are they really their age?, Carly Simon. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1972, Carly Simon released You’re So Vain, and in 2020, the singer has every reason to be vain. That is because she shared a photo of herself watching the Oscars, barely wearing any makeup, and she looks fantastic.

So much so, it doesn’t appear as though she has aged a day since she won her own Oscar for Best Original Song in 1989. The winning tune was Let the River Run from Working Girl. Unlike yesterday’s nominations and winner, this song will still be stuck in your head 31 years from now, which will be 62 years because it has been there since the last century. That is also when she stopped aging.

I hope her secret is that it is in the water she drank. Both she and Steven Tyler are from my hometown, and they both look and act so youthful. I don’t want to be an old lady when I am their age.

Carly Simon says a third of You’re So Vain is about…
November 18th, 2015 under Carly Simon, Music. [ Comments: none ]


Ever since 1972, people have been wondering who Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain is about, and after 43 years she finally named a name. She told People that the second verse is about…Warren Beatty. It has long been rumored that the tune is about him, and now we know a verse is indeed about the former lady killer.
Will she ever name the other two men, she simply told the magazine, “I don’t know if I’ll do it. I never thought I would admit that it was more than one person!”
Many have speculated that the song could also possibly be about another one of her former-lovers, Mick Jagger, but now we have a third name to contend with. Who is it? We might never know. But then again we never thought she would confirm any of the names that the single was written about.
