Gabe Dixon took to Room 5 to perform "Even The Rain" live with just him and his trusty piano.
The album, which has been on rotation on my iPod, is getting great reviews all over.
Here is a quote from our friend at USA Today Elysa Gardner speaking on the studio version of "Even The Rain":
“(A) twinkling, chiming gem, a slice of love in stormy weather featuring (Alison) Krauss’ unmistakably radiant vocal harmonies.”
We are digging Gabe. Check out his performance above and let us know what you think.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Falling For You
David Letterman, who was involved in a blackmailing scheme for $2 Million dollars by Robert Halderman was deep in debt as he went after Letterman.
The person in question is Holly Hester who told Halderman she had an affair with Letterman back in the 90's. There is a question that this whole affair thing being brought to light and that he does get it on will tarnish his viewership with women.
Who writes that crap? It is not going to effect his viewership. I am sure they wanted to say will it effect him getting female movie stars but since so many people have defended Roman Polanski in Hollywood, they knew that Dave's thing was nothing and is between the wife he has now, the woman he had the affair with and the person who is blackmailing Letterman.
Trust me, Conan O'Brien right now would kill for this type of press.-Dr.FB
The reviews are starting to come in for Whitney Houston's new CD and it looks good!
She even boasts a line from L.L. Cool J; "Don't call it a comeback/I've been here for years" and you believe it.
USA Today gave the diva 3 and a half stars and for more of the review, please go here.
So, Drfunkenberry visitors, are you planning on getting the new CD from Whitney?-Dr.FB
Kelly Clarkson, the first American Idol winner, will be a guest judge on the show. She told the USA Today that she is very excited to be on the show.
This news follows a slew of guest host announcements such as Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, and Joe Jonas.
The Kelly Clarkson one is cool to me since she was someone who had to go through the whole process in order to win American Idol.
You diggin all these guest judges?-Dr/FB
Yet another in a long line of comparisons between the two best-selling authors JK Rowling (Harry Potter-do I even have to mention?) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight). The fact that they share little more in common than reproductive organs and fat bank accounts matters not. Someone, somewhere decreed from on high that the world must be divided between Potterheads and Twi-hards, and lo it came to be. So pick sides, if you haven't already. But choose wisely.
If it helps, Stephen King says in a USA Today interview, "The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good."
Oh, yeah, and Rowling was just made a knight of the Legion of Honor Tuesday by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Robert Downey Jr. spoke with USA Today about his Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in Tropic Thunder as Oscar-obsessed actor Kirk Lazarus. "It's so funny to me that the role is a guy who is an Oscar-seeking moron. His whole motivation is Oscars," he says, "Irony is synonymous with pretty much everything that is going on."
Downey is on the set in New York wrapping up shooting the big-screen adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, set to hit theatres this November. The film also stars Jude Law as Watson and Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler.
For more, including Robert's thoughts on his changing fortunes throughout his career, see here.
And Tonight, the unveiling...
More prized than a trip to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory are the invitations granted for tonight's unveiling of Prince's latest galactic web project, lotusflow3r.com . Press invitees include Steve Appleford of Rolling Stone; Benjamin Trott from Six Apart; Kat Corbett from KROQ; Danny Shea and Katherine Thomson, music and entertainment editors from The Huffington Post; Emily McKay from NME and Edna Gunderson of USA Today. Also invited to the secret soiree are 3 select Purple Ticket winners, whose names have been withheld to protect what's left of their innocence.
The plan since the beginning has been to show the work to the press today, while anticipation builds for the official opening. Following the special preview, guests will be treated to an hour-long concert in the funkiest house in the Hills. After that, we hear the band plans to crash Clive Davis' party with an Alicia Keys joint they've rearranged.
With a beginning like this, no doubt this year is about to be stellar!
(This sounds really fun. Purple ticket holders aka lucky dogs. Can't wait to hear about it.)-DR.FB
