NEIL SEDAKA IS STILL ON THE ROAD

Old school singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka popped into Craig’s for dinner and left with a doggie bag. The Breaking Up Is Hard to Do singer had a string of hits in the 60’s but feels The Beatles ruined his performing career by changing musical taste. He went on to great success as a songwriter with songs like Where the Boys Are. At 77, he still tours and performs in the US and around the world. In fact, he’s appearing at the Saban theater in Beverly Hills in January. We fondly remember his Scopitone video of Calendar Girl. Did you know he’s only 5’5” tall?

    Neil looks great for 77–and he certainly has staying power.

    Didn’t he also write “Love Will Keep Us Together?” That was a mega hit for The Captain & Tennille in the 70s. You can hear Toni’s backup singers/sisters sing “Sedaka is back!” in the closing chorus.

    More recently (ha, ha), Neil worked with his daughter Dara; that was the 80s. Dara had to lose weight, however, before Neil and his wife offered their full love and support. This was all documented in a book and talk show appearances.

    Are you out there, Dara? Write in with an update! 🙂

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
