Tim Burton's top 10 movies, a new 'Runaways' trailer and ... Kansas is still touring?!?
... Rotten Tomatoes ranks Tim Burton's best movies. Sorry guys, but there's no way Willy Wonka ranks higher than Beetle Juice. But I think we'll all be happy with their No. 2 pick.
... Foreigner, Styx and Kansas unite for a joint tour. And by joint, at their collective age, that probably refers more to aching joint pain at their age than marijuana.
... Public Image Ltd. has expanded their upcoming North American tour and added a TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It will be their first TV appearance since 1992 when John Lydon called Dennis Miller "a wanker."
... They Might Be Giants has been added to the Bonnaroo lineup. That's in an addition to plenty of "kid shows" and Flood shows (20th anniversary!) already in the works for 2010.
... There's a new trailer out for The Runaways. Wow, how I miss the pale, rock-and-roll lifestyle of the late '70s.
TODAY'S READER BLAST is from ... Mick in Sydney. "I have a chance to go to one of the following concerts. Which one do you think I should go see: either Huey Lewis and the News ... or Spandau Ballet with Tears for Fears? The venue is not the problem as both concerts are playing at a Hunter Valley winery (about two hours north of Sydney). Either one would be good but I’d go to the Spandau concert to see two bands but I’d go to the Huey concert to hold up a "Do you remember Stuck in the '80s" sign at the concert. What do you recommend?"
Wow, Mick. I'm impressed by your dedication. And as much as we'd love to see that Stuck in the '80s sign at Huey, I feel confident in urging to you attend Spandau Ballet/Tears for Fears instead. You can still hold up a sign that says "Please do an interview with Stuck in the '80s" if that helps. I've been begging both bands to go on the show.
Anyone disagree with me?
