SUSHI WOLF’S MONDAY
Via @odangogogo345 – Adam’s Sukkiri performances triggers enough Tweets in to Trend in Japan in both Japanese and English!!
Ever since Adam tweeted about “stuff” happening in September, speculation has run like a wildfire through the fandom. A fan set off fresh rumors by tweeting a comment posted (and now deleted) from the Facebook page of Steven “Visage” Strange, a contemporary of Boy George. This comment was posted in May:
Steve Strange (born Steven John Harrington, 28 May 1959) is a Welsh pop singer, best known as the lead singer and frontman of the 1980s pop group Visage. Since the late 1970s he has also been a prominent nightclub host and promoter…In Strange’s 2002 autobiography Blitzed! he speaks about his heroin addiction, his nervous breakdown, his sexuality, and the ongoing attempts to get his life back together…In 2005, Strange appeared in a Channel 4 documentary called Whatever Happened To The Gender Benders?, which reflected on the advent of the New Romantic movement of the early 1980s and the prominent roles that Strange, Boy George and Marilyn each played within it. In stark contrast to the relative glamour of the New Romantic era, interviews with all three stars in the present day highlighted the sheer devastation that fame, fortune and drug addiction had taken on each of them during the past 25 or so years, with Strange and Marilyn in particular being openly candid about the mental health problems they now try to cope with every day.
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
MetalTalk.net – MARK TAYLOR’S BIG CITY NIGHTS: QUEEN WITH ADAM LAMBERT: HAMMERSMITH ODEON, LONDON Wonderful write-up by a Queen fan who went with an open mind:
…Lambert won any doubters over with a stand or fall version of ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’ where his range silenced many…
Set closer ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ sees the screen come alive once more with the younger Queen doing the ‘Scaramouche’ parts before Lambert explodes back onto the stage in a blaze of fireworks to rock the joint to it’s finale.
Both Queen and Adam Lambert were the champions tonight in a historical and monumentous gig… THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
WBUR On Point – David Bowie and the 1970s (PODCAST) A very interesting radio program! “David Jones, born 1947, became David Bowie. David Bowie became Ziggy Stardust, messenger from Mars. Starman. And a whole lot more. In the 1970s, one-of-a-kind rocker David Bowie was the one who walked away from the 1960s utopianism. Went surreal. Went space. Went glam. Went omni-sexual. Fantasy. Strange. Painted his face. Put on the spandex. And ran all over the cosmos. This hour, On Point: a new biography looks at David Bowie, the master of persona, and the 1970s.“

ADAM WOWED BY 13-YEAR-OLD ARTIST
Examiner – Young singer wows Adam Lambert with song cover (Video) “Blake is 13 years old and according to Facebook, “along with dancing singing is one of my biggest passions.” Obviously this young Australian singer was thrilled that Adam saw his video and he even tweeted a link to the video after and said, “buzzing that Adam Lambert watched my Vid & said it was awesome. Thanks so much to everyone who helped make it possible”” This is not your average 13-year-old’s music video either. Intrigued?
