Green Day’s Billy Joe Joins ‘The Voice’ as a Mentor With Christina Aguilera

Written by , Posted in General

I will try my hardest not to judge Green Day frontman Billy Joe for joining ‘The Voice.’ It’s a popular show, he’s a popular guy, and he has to stay popular — because he has an album coming out. That being said, my vitriolic hatred for Christina Aguilera and my talent show fatigue makes this revelation difficult. Watch their interview below, and by “their,” I mean hers, considering he barely got a word in.

Snow Patrol Performs “Open Your Eyes” at Hyde Park

Written by , Posted in General

Remember when you were considered a musically adept insider for loving Snow Patrol? Well they sure have come a long way since their underground-artist days. Watch them perform “Open Your Eyes” at the Hyde Park Olympic Celebration. It’s got that epic slow climb that the band is famous for.

Dane Cook Apologizes for Dark Knight Joke

Written by , Posted in General

I get it. Stand up comedy is based on taking hot-button, touchy subjects and risking a backlash by twisting it into something funny. If you don’t take risks, then you’re not a comedian. That being said, Dane Cook’s joke was terrible. Yes it’s too soon to joke about such a colossal tragedy, but it also wasn’t funny — and that’s the key. In short, Cook basically suggested that the film was so bad, the audience was probably thinking they wanted to be shot. I’m paraphrasing horribly — but trust me — my summary is just as funny as the original phrasing. Cook got the message, and quickly said, “I am devastated by the recent tragedy in Colorado & did not mean to make light of what happened. I made a bad judgment call with my material last night & regret making a joke at such a sensitive time. My heart goes out to all of the families & friends of the victims.” I won’t be too hard on the guy because the public has already given him their fair share of tongue-lashings and I’m sure he learned his lesson. But I wouldn’t be The Dishmaster if I didn’t make my point.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Announces All-Star Lineup — I’m Disappointed

Written by , Posted in General

‘Dancing With the Stars’ announced some of its all-star lineup, and many of the biggest-hitters in the history of the show are noticeably absent. Where is Mario Lopez, Joey Fatone, Nicole Scherzinger, and Sabrina Bryan? I realize that a lot of these people have become too famous to return, but it’s still disappointing. Here’s the current lineup: Helio Castroneves; Shawn Johnson; Bristol Palin; Pamela Anderson; Emmitt Smith; Joey Fatone; Drew Lachey; Gilles Marini; Kelly Monaco; and Apolo Anton Ohno. To be fair, Sabrina Bryan is in the running for the public’s wild-card vote, which also  includes: Carson Kressley; Kyle Massey; and Hines Ward. And couldn’t they find a way to make Brooke Burke host and compete at the same time!? How dare she?! At least we’ll get the return of awkward run-ins between Pamela Anderson and ex-boyfriend David Charvet (also Brooke Burke’s husband).

No Doubt Promotes ‘Push and Shove’ on Good Morning America — Performs “Settle Down”

Written by , Posted in General

Gwen Stefani is one of my favorite front-women in history. It’s not just about the music. It’s about her stage-presence and her sweet-girl persona that she balances with a rock-star edge. I was devastated when she went solo, but I’m happy to see her back in the spotlight beside her band-mates. Watch her take the Good Morning America stage to perform “Settle Down” off No Doubt’s new record, Push and Shove.

Here at The Dishmaster, I like think of myself as having a musical ear. So you can only imagine my bragging rights about requesting an interview with The Lumineers shortly before they took off into the music stratosphere. Congratulations to the very kind members of The Lumineers. Watch them perform their bit hit, “Ho Hey,” on Leno, and click here to read my interview with the band.

Daniel Bedingfield Performs at The Mint — Wakes Up Los Angeles Crowd

Written by , Posted in General


Daniel Bedingfield did it again. This is my third time watching him perform live, and he has a unique way of turning the low-energy of an intimate venue into the raucous feel of a stadium. And in Los Angeles, that’s an enormous feat. True to form, he removed the tables at The Mint to open up the floor, and he continuously exited the stage to enter the crowd. At one point, he even stood on the table of two seated individuals in what I can only assume was a hilariously antagonistic poke at their refusal to join the fun. The guy knows what he’s doing. He not only performed the songs we know and love (see “Gotta Get Thru This”), but he also treated us to some impromptu covers with a twist of his astoundingly cool beat-boxing tactics. Needless to say, I will be following him around Los Angeles for many more shows to come. Be sure to get his new EP, ‘ Stop the Traffik: Secret Fear,’ and read my interview with him by clicking here: Daniel Bedingfield Interview.
