Adam Lambert has been spending the week enjoying a richly deserved vacation – the first real break he’s had since he embarked on his American Idol journey – but we haven’t been able to slow down one bit (not that we’re complaining). While our boy is frolicking on some South Pacific sand with his sunny Finn (we have coined “Lambskinen”, hope it catches), we have been diligently gathering the post-Grammy videos, fashion notes and discussion at Week in Review. Today is your chance to catch up because tomorrow, there will be a whole new issue!
The highlight this week was our interview with the remarkable Monte Pittman. Do check out the podcast! It’s long and liberally sprinkled with tantalizing tidbits and hints about Monte’s new album-in-progress. You’ll get to hear two of his beautiful songs from The Deepest Dark along with one of his Prong masterpieces and a song he co-wrote for Madonna. You’ll develop a whole new appreciation for this remarkable musician, and how fortunate Adam is to have him as his musical collaborator and friend. Monte’s Kickstarter campaign has raised over $30,000, and we will be contributing with our exciting next campaign. Stay tuned…
P.S. Wesley Strick, who was the delightful subject of our recent video, just wrote to Juneau: “I’ve been thinking about you cuz I went to the Grammys (long story) and had an aisle seat and all these living legends kept walking past (Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Jennifer Hudson) on their way to the bathroom … and then who should suddenly be standing a foot from me in the aisle … but AL!!! Looking glorious, I must say. And, impulsively, I thrust out a hand and we shook heartily and he smiled glowingly and his DNA was all over my palm ..!!!” Ooh, wonder if Adam watched our interview and recognized Wes? Major flail!!
