Temptations' Dennis Edwards Dead At 74



Dennis Edwards Of The Temptations Dead at 74
He sang some big ones with the group including “I Can’t Get Next to You,” “Ball of Confusion” and “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.” Edwards replaced David Ruffin in 1968 and played with them until 1976 and reunited with the band on a few reunions the following decade.

He actually died in Chicago a day before his birthday. Edwards would have been 75 tomorrow. Edwards was born February 3rd 1943 in Alabama. He was also a member of another soul-singing band that, like the Temptations, were on Motown, the Contours. He was also in the U.S. military before he even walked into Motown in 1966. In 1984 he had a big solo R&B #2 hit called “Don’t Look Any Further,” a duet with Siedah Garrett, he also scored with “(You’re My) Aphrodisiac” and “Coolin’ Out” as a solo artist.

Edwards also toured with Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks using the name “Tribute to the Temptations.” he later got in some legal hot water for using the name ‘Dennis Edwards & the Temptations.” Both he and groups settled with the singer eventually calling his touring show The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards.

Edwards was briefly married to Ruth Pointer, whom he wed in Las Vegas in 1977. They had one daughter Issa Pointer, who became a member of her mother’s vocal group, The Pointer Sisters.

Some reports are saying he passed away in hospital following complications from meningitis. – by John Beaudin

Guitarist Davey Johnstone Says Elton John Saved His Life



Guitarist Davey Johnstone: “Elton John Saved My Life”

http://www.eltonjohn.com/

We wonder If Elton John’s long-time guitarist Davey Johnstone has a special place in his heart for the hit “Someone Saved My Life Tonight?” The 1975 tune was not written for Johnstone but it might as well have been.

According to Johnstone Elton did save his life. After losing his nine-year-old son Oliver in a tragic pool accident the guitarist was reinventing the extent of partying to avoid his inner demons.

It all stopped, however, while on tour in Europe. Elton said ‘Why don’t you fly back with me and we’ll spend a couple of days at the house?’ It was to be an informal intervention.

“Then one day he sat me down and said, ‘You should have a look at your life and there might be something you should do to make it better and to honor your kid Oliver’ because I lost a boy when he was nine years old and it almost killed me — as it does any parent who has gone through that awful thing.”

“He said, if you look at your life a little more seriously, instead of just trying to go balls-out every night and having to score a chick or drugs or whatever. It doesn’t have to be that way’. And as a result of listening to Elton, my wife and my kids are happier because they know that they’re not going to see this maniac occasionally appearing.”

Interestingly Johnstone claims to have been on more booze and drug benders than all the member of the Rolling Stones put together but even more interesting the Scottish born guitarist is the only musician that Elton has not sacked in over 40 years. He first joined the band in 1971 for Elton’s fourth album “Madman Across the Water.”

The 64-year-old father of seven is Elton’s Musical Director and saw his boss crashing down the same roads in the 70’s and 80’s but that all stopped 25 years ago.

Elton John is set to release an exciting uptempo album “Wonderful Crazy Night” February 5th and yes Johnstone will be on there as well as longtime drummer Nigel Olsson and percussionist Ray Cooper.

The Elton John band is healthy and happy.

Arnel Pineda Not Leaving Journey & Neal Schon Not Needing Steve Perry



Arnel Pineda Not Leaving Journey & Neal Schon Not Needing Steve Perry
Lead singer Pineda just posted some solo dates on his website leading some Perry fans to gleefully start dreaming for a moment that maybe he was coming back? Well, even though guitarist Neal Schon says he’d welcome the legendary singer back he doesn’t really need him adding, “We couldn’t even possibly be doing better right now.” He told Atlantic City Weekly that even their management remind him that Journey couldn’t be bigger right now….yeah except if Steve Perry came back. You can say that Neal, it’s not true, but sure stick to that story. Who needs the guy who sang all the hits.

I really like Arnel Pineda. He’s an amazing singer and from all accounts the salt of the earth – truly a nice man but Steve Perry is an insurmountable hill to climb. Pineda followed both Steve Augeri )aw-jearry) and Jeff Scott Soto as replacements for Perry.

The article remind us that the current lineup (excluding Pineda) recorded the band’s two biggest albums, 1981’s “Escape” and 1983’s “Frontiers.” That’s Neal Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory on bass and drummer Steve Smith. That does say something.

After Journey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April of this year Steve Perry did show up but did not sing with the band. It showed some good faith but dimmed the lights on a future reunion. So if Steve Perry is not coming back the boys are left to celebrate the next best thing – all the players on those 2 classic albums. Saying they couldn’t do better?..yeah, unless Steve Perry came back.

So Pineda has some solo shows in November and December, Journey’s touring all summer and Steve Perry has promised us a follow up to his 1994 solo album “For the Love of Strange Medicine” in the fall even though that’s probably not going to happen so soon. Artists who retire have a tendency to take longer to come back. I’m thinking 2018 at the soonest. Perry describes the new album as a “cathartic” and “emotional expression” about the loss of a loved one. – by John Beaudin

Timothy B Schmit Tried To Avoid The Drama in the Eagles



The Eagles’ Timothy B Schmit Tried To Avoid The Drama in the Eagles
The bassist told the Telegraph he feels exactly like we all do when it come to all those Rock-Gods dying, saying, “It seems like people are just dropping off the Earth, I suppose that happens when you get older. It’s part of life. No one’s getting out of it.”

As for Glenn Frey dying? The 69-year-old former Eagles singer said he had no idea how sick he was saying, “He went into hospital… and didn’t come back.” Frey died on January 18, 2016, aged 67.

On Frey Schmit says, “He wasn’t a wishy washy kind of guy. He knew what he wanted, so you weren’t left guessing about anything. But what I remember most fondly was that he was a belly laugher. He was a funny guy, always telling jokes. If he heard something funny, he would almost fall on the floor laughing.”

As the last Eagle to join the band Schmit was not interested in all the drama adding “I felt the tension, I saw the squabbling, but I didn’t know how deep it was, I was the new guy, I wanted to fit in. I saw it get heavier and weirder, but I missed the build up. I thought, ‘This will pass’.”

He certainly knew his own place, saying, “There was a pecking order. It was Glenn and Don’s band, no question. And they knew what they were doing. I learned a lot from them. A great song has to stand on its own, just singing and playing, and the rest is frosting. But you have to pay attention to the frosting.”

Schmit replaced Randy Meisner in both Poco and the Eagles and his opinion on a reunion? It’s not going to happen. He told the Telegraph, “It looks like it, The Eagles couldn’t be the Eagles without both Don and Glenn. That’s why I think this thing’s over. You see a lot of oldies bands still going out and playing when there’s not one person left from the original line up. I wouldn’t ever want to go there.” – by John Beaudin
