Elvis Is Alive And She's Beautiful - by Steve Barile

Steve Barile presents Imelda May with his co-authored book " Elvis - Something For Everybody". Katz Deli, NYC 7-27-11. Few singers, if any, have earned the esteemed privilege of mention along side of the truly unique versatility and individuality of the exalted one...... Elvis ! Some have occasionally sparked thoughts of comparison to my mind but invariably fall short. Upon viewing a recently released dvd, I made the discovery of the latest singer to fall victim to my comparison to The King. Miss Imelda May . The opportunity to experience her live act presented itself in the way of a concert in New York City's Central Park on Thursday past. Briefly stated, her performance was nothing short of remarkable! As the alabaster tigress eagerly saunters on stage to the hard-driving strains of good ole rock and roll, one becomes immediately transfixed. Wearing a skin-tight Batman dress (!), six inch heals and sporting a hairdo and make-up that's an extremely

This Irish Lass is going to be HUGE! ....Yes, Bat Girls and Bat Boys, that is a BATMAN dress Imelda is wearing! I told she was COOL!

Lisa Marie Presley STRESSED Out & Turns To John Travolta For Support

LISA MARIE PRESLEY – rocked by a heart-numbing emotional meltdown – turned to Scientology pal JOHN TRAVOLTA to  help get her life back on track. The 43-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley buckled under the pressure of trying to revive her music career while risking her health to lose weight plus the stress of raising her 2-year-old twin girls Finley and Harper, insiders say. “All of Lisa Marie’s problems came to a head in a perfect storm of stress – from readying her new CD to her never-ending battle to stay thin and the constant de­mands of the twins,” a family friend told The ENQUIRER. “After Elvis’ death, she’d vowed to make her daddy proud of her as a performer. But her musical efforts have fall­en short.” About two weeks ago, she crumpled emo­tionally over her music come­back, said the source. “I think Lisa Marie prob­ably knows this album with producer T Bone Burnett is really her last chance for a showbiz hit,” the friend confided. “It’s been six years since her las

Caylee Anthony Tribute Song by Rascals Flatt

In light of the controversial acquittal of Casey Anthony, who was accused of killing her adorable 2-year-old daughter Caylee, Rascal Flatts‘ lead singer, Gary LeVox, co-penned a tribute song called ‘She’s Going Places’ to the little girl. Country parody singer Cledus T Judd got serious, along with Jimmy Yeary, to co-write this piano-driven ballad. A Nashville demo singer also contributes vocals to the song. Country station KICKS 105 alerted us to the song, which the artists hope will spread virally. Judd was reported as saying, “The greatest way to heal is to help, and that’s what we want to do with this song.” Both Judd and LeVox have daughters, which no doubt fueled their desire to write such a heartfelt and touching song. Sometimes pop culture watchers get so caught up in the drama surrounding the mother that they place less emphasis on that beautiful baby girl with the big brown eyes, so this song squares the focus to Caylee, and Caylee alone. The song ponders all the thing

Carjacking at Tunica Casino - Police Chase To Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN - (WMC-TV) - Moments after an elderly couple was carjacked in the parking lot of Bally's Casino in Tunica, the suspect was spotted by a Walls, Mississippi officer. The pursuit went from Mississippi to Memphis and was all caught on camera. Suspect Yarley Lyons went to great lengths to avoid arrest. The wild pursuit was all caught on the dashboard camera of the Walls Police Chief Gary Boisseau. "Our police chief, Gary Boisseau, was listening on the radio and intercepted the vehicle which came through the town of Walls," said Walls prosecutor Stan Little. Little walked Action News 5 through the chase from the moment Boisseau caught up with Lyons' stolen car on Highway 61. At one point, the champagne-colored Bonneville pulled over. "Both officers get out of their respective cars with both their guns drawn," said Little. "As they approach the suspect's vehicle, he takes off." Lyons crossed the state line into Memphis an

Porn Offer Withdrawn for Casey Anthony

Casey Anthony in court today TMZ  reports that Porn King Steve Hirsch, of Vivid Entertainment has officially withdrawn his offer to 25 year old, Casey Anthony. Hirsch -- who reached out to Anthony's lawyer yesterday in the hopes of landing a deal -- has now reversed course ... telling TMZ, "It has become obvious to us that Vivid fans, and people in general, want nothing to do with her and that includes a XXX movie." Hirsch explains, "We were ready to make an offer to Casey to star in one of our feature films.  It's clear to me now, however, that there has been an overwhelmingly negative response to our offer and so we've decided to withdraw it." He adds, "We now believe that we underestimated the emotional response that people are having to the verdict. A movie starring Casey Anthony is not what people want to see."

Clean Up @ Cowboy Jack Clement's Home & Recording Spa

"A worn out crew of volunteers in the backyard at my Dad's finishing some pizza and ice cold drinks after their hard work. In the distance we heard an ice cream truck with its merry melody. It got closer and closer until it drove into the driveway to the backyard, opened its side door and treated everyone to ice cream. The smiles on the worn faces as they ate their Astro Pops and Push-Ups was a beautiful moment." said Cowboy's daughter, Alison.

Tim Warren Memorial Fund - Memphis Police Officer Killed in the line of Duty

MEMPHIS, TN -(WMC-TV) - Fallen Memphis Police Officer Timothy Warren 's children returned home Tuesday for the first time since losing their dad. "It's real hectic," said their grandfather, Asa Atkinson, of the toll Warren's murder was having on the family. Atkinson said Sunday's shooting triggered nearly 48 hours of sleeplessness for the entire family. "I went to sleep last night at 11:30 for the first time since 6 o'clock Sunday morning," he said. Family members broke the news to the children a day later, on Independence Day. Warren's son, eight-year-old James, was extremely close to his father, and is not taking the death well. "James broke down when he walked in the house and his dad wasn't there," Atkinson said. His grandfather said James climbed onto Warren's motorcycle and had a hard cry.

Memphis Cop Killer's Parents Speak Out

Parents of Accused Shooter Apologize to Slain Officer’s Family: A 22-year-old Cleveland, Miss., man was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the Sunday shooting deaths of a Memphis police officer and another man from Mississippi. Alexander Blaise Haydel, who police say used Army infantry tactics in a plan to kill more police officers, faces two counts of first-degree murder and was being held in Shelby County Jail. The military tactics, according to police, included going up a flight of stairs to gain the "higher ground" on officers and attempting to use their concern for a downed comrade against them by blowing up two fire extinguishers near the downed officer. At about 7 p.m. Sunday at the DoubleTree Hotel in Downtown Memphis, Memphis Police officer Timothy Warren, 39, and Arthur Warren, 49, also of Cleveland, were shot to death. Arthur Warren - shot & killed A domestic dispute involving Haydel, who had recently married Arthur Warren'

Louisiana Hayride, Elvis & James Burton

There's an auditorium in the city of Shreveport that played a huge roll in launching the careers of some of this country's greatest musicians. In the 1950's, almost everyone had heard of the Louisiana Hayride. Today, the memories of those great performers still echo through the old building. "It is said that if you were to have stood in this building at the right moment in time, that you would have actually seen the music change, the face of music change for the whole country, right in the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium because of people like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and of course Elvis Presley," says Teresa Micheels with the auditorium. It was 1954 when Elvis made his first appearance on the Louisiana Hayride, a weekly live concert that was broadcast on radio from the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport. KWKH radio announcer Frank Page introduced the young singer. In an oral history recorded for LSU Shreveport, Page talks about the decision to put Elvi

Niko Congiu - Italian Singing Sensation!

Niko performed with a choir during the 45th Annual Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon at the South Point in September of 2010. While visiting with producer Steve Binder , he shared some of Niko 's music with me. I was totally blown away by his voice. So now you check out Niko and see why Steve Binder is THE MAN! Please check out Italian singing star NIKO  , Official website of international performer Niko Congiu. He's an absolute incredible talent! He's an Italian singing sensation! Niko's Bio: Every so often an artist is discovered with a voice so rare and a gift so pure. Most of today’s music is overproduced and prepackaged; marketed with glitz and glamour that more often than not, doesn’t live up to the hype it claims to be. From a small town in Italy, we are reminded of what real talent sounds like – his name is Nicola “Niko” Congiu . Born in Sardinia, Italy, Niko grew up knowing that he would become a performer.

The Las Vegas Hilton - Shape Up Or Lose The Hilton Name!

The Las Vegas Hilton has fallen on hard times, not getting the respect it did during those years when it was Elvis’s home away from home. So the keepers of the rights to use of the Hilton name decided last week the time had come to take action. The "big Hilton," as the resort with its 30,000-plus rooms and suites has been known to generations of locals and visitors will lose rights to the use of the Las Vegas Hilton name and marquee as of the end of the year, unless … And this is where the guessing and speculation by sources familiar with Hilton operations begins. "There’s a lot of deferred maintenance over there," according to one of several former Las Vegas Hilton executives who shared their thoughts on the condition they not be identified. This source continued, "It’s in the wrong place at the wrong time for a property that requires a lot of tender loving care and maintenance." A fact that puts it in the same category as a number of other l

Zsa Zsa Gabor To Become A Mom At 94?

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband spoke to Joy Behar on April 18, 2011 about becoming parents. He admits that Zsa Zsa can not talk or sign papers anymore. Zsa Zsa is 94 and he is 68. Here is the 911 Call  from May 28, 2011 a day after Zsa Zsa left the hospital, von Anhalt called 911 saying, "She's going to die!" The feeding tube became dislodged from Zsa Zsa's stomach. Zsa Zsa Gabor & 9th husband Prince von Anhalt More recently, on June 21, Prince von A-hole ....Anhalt released photos of his wife Zsa Zsa in a hospital bed toasting to von Anhalt's 68th birthday. Would Zsa Zsa approve of these photos being released? Gabor's only child, Francesca Hilton doesn't think so.

Michael Jackson's REAL Voice heard during a prank call from Ralphige

TMZ  reports the Michael Jackson estate has dropped the hammer on the man who famously crank called MJ in 2007 ... claiming he has NO RIGHT to sell the recording because it contains MJ's REAL voice. The call was made by legendary prankster Ralphige -- who has fooled the likes of Donald Trump , Paris Hilton , and Chris Brown .  During the MJ call, Ralphige pretended to be Akon ... and he teased Michael about molesting children. MJ claimed Ralphige was NOT talking to the real Michael Jackson ... but merely an impersonator.   Now, the MJ Estate is acknowledging that the King of Pop REALLY WAS was pranked -- because they've threatened to sue Ralphige for selling the recording on his website for 99 cents a pop ... without permission from MJ's camp. The threat worked -- because Ralphige's site is down ... but the prankster sees a silver lining ... telling us, "The letter, if anything, it at least proves to the doubters that the prank call is real."

Happy Fourth of July!


Police Officer Shot & Killed @ Memphis Double Tree Hotel Last Night

Police Officer Shot and Killed Downtown: Two people — including a Memphis Police officer — were shot and killed in Downtown’s DoubleTree Hotel Sunday evening, victims of a domestic dispute that exploded into an armed confrontation. Officer Timothy Warren was on duty and responding to a call when he was shot and killed at the hotel at 185 Union, at the intersection of Third Street, around 7 p.m., shortly after thousands of spectators had filed into AutoZone Park across the street for the Class AAA Memphis Redbirds game. Warren was in the stairwell when the suspect stepped out from a doorway connecting to a floor and shot him in the head. Warren, who joined the force in July 2003, was rushed to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis but was later pronounced dead. “This is a very tragic situation. Any time an officer is ... harmed, it’s tragic,” Memphis Mayor A C Wharton said from The Med. “We want the officers and their families to know we understand the harm th

Top Ten Memphis Movies

No plans for this holiday weekend? Bad weather stopping your BBQ? Or do you just need a good Memphis fix? Chris Herrington of The Memphis Flyer  compiled this great detailed list of movies either made in Memphis or inspired by the great city. We thought this list was too good not to share with you. 1. Mystery Train (1989) The Set-Up : Jim Jarmusch's landmark work of made-in-Memphis cinema is a triptych of interconnected stories that depict the city through the eyes of three types of outsiders: tourist (Japanese teens on a pilgrimage to Sun and Graceland), stranded traveler (an Italian widow on a layover), and immigrant (the Clash's Joe Strummer as a downbeat Brit). The Movie : Jarmusch is one of the signature American directors of the past 30 years and with its deadpan comedy, compelling structure, colorful supporting performances (Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Steve Buscemi), strong sense of place, and a connoisseur's soundtrack that insists on Memphis culture beyon
