The Man and the Music with Murray #Rocktober

Happy 1st of October!

This is one of my most favorite times of year. It really is, I love the Fall and I love Halloween. Two of my kids were born in October (making May my other favorite time of year for my Finn) and of course my brother’s birthday is also in October. It’s a good month!

billmurrayAdding to the fun this October is the start of ROCK THE KASBAH’s #ROCKTOBER by getting to know legendary rock manager Richie Lanz (Bill Murray) in this brand new behind-the-scenes look – “The Man and the Music.” Hear what some of your favorite rock musicians had to say about Richie, his legacy, and his famous antics throughout the years.

SYNOPSIS 

A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock the Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson. Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s  version of “American Idol.”  Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star.”

Quick run down on the Grammy’s

Train won their third Grammy Award last night as the iTunes Session version of their hit song “Hey, Soul Sister” took home the award for Best Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Train’s iTunes Session EP features original performances by the band available exclusively on iTunes. This award marks the first Grammy win for iTunes original content.

Train frontman Pat Monahan said, “It’s been beyond our wildest dreams to have the success we have had this past year, and a Grammy completely takes it over the top. We can’t thank our fans enough for always sticking with us.”

I for one love their latest single “Marry Me,” which has been certified “gold” so far. The song continues its ascent up the radio charts, and is currently reaching 24 million people in audience.

Lady Antebellum, on the other hand, picked up five prizes, including song and record of the year. It marked the second consecutive year that a country act dominated the event, after Taylor Swift grabbed the Grammy glory in 2010.

The members of Lady Antebellum said they were left in tears backstage by their unexpected wins, which also included three awards in the country field, all generated by their album “Need You Now.”

“We’ll probably never have one of these moments ever again in our career,” said singer Charles Kelley. “You’re not going to win five Grammys ever again. We know that, we’re realistic. So we’re gonna try to soak it up.”

The number one prize of top album of the year went to Arcade Fire. Awesomeness.

Flamboyant pop singer Lady Gaga and rapper Jay-Z won three awards each, both of them beating Eminem along the way.

Could it be love for Kate Hudson?

She’s such the girl next door and I would love to see her in love, but I feel like she is always with someone else when I check up on her in the media. And then I think why am I checking up on a celebrity who I will never actually know… but anyway.

Reports are stating that things are pretty serious between Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy.

Matt Bellamy’s parents are to spend Christmas with Kate Hudson’s family.

The Muse frontman plans to take Marilyn and George — who are divorced — from their homes in Exeter, South West England to California for the festive season to enjoy a big family celebration with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, which will be the debut meeting for all of them.

The pair have been dating for around five months.

From Catwoman to Iconlebrity

Kate Hudson continued to follow her New York Yankees beau Alex Rodriguez on the road Friday night, attending the opening game of the “Subway Series” at Citi Field in Queens, N.Y., against the New York Mets – where, in the eighth inning, A-Rod hit his 564th career homerun.

Michael Jackson passed away on Thursday, June 25, 2009. It was confirmed by the LA Times. He was 50 years old and was rushed to the hospital today after suffering a heart attack at his LA home.

“All those who knew him well really know what he was like, and I’m sure that now the accolades are going and I’m sure when the autopsy comes, all hell’s going to break loose. So thank God we’re celebrating him now.”

– Liza Minnelli told the CBS Early Show on Friday, about her good friend Michael Jackson

Jackson’s autopsy has been inconclusive thus far; it will take six to eight weeks to determine the official cause of death, pending toxicology reports.

Michelle Pfeiffer would like to reprise her role as Catwoman in the next Batman movie. We would absolutely love to see her in the role, but do you think they’d give it to her?
