Okay so they claim it’s more of a “re-birth”. Whatever. Creed was one of the hugest bands of the late 1990’s, so news of the original line-up of Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall getting back together is huge.

Listen to Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti chat in Cara’s Basement about their new album, summer tour and how having kids made them fiinally able to get the band back on track.

Funniest part is when Scott Stapp refers to the infamous Chicago Creed concert where he was so waisted that he forgot the words to all the songs and laid down on stage aparrently napping as a “not-so-great-show”. Gee…ya think???  But he does have a point…he’s had far more good shows (where he didn’t nap and/or forget the lyrics) than bad ones.   Let’s hope their August 30 gig at The First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre isn’t a “not-so-great” show.

Did you happen to watch the Saturday Night Live episode a few weeks ago featuring Sarah Palin?  Chances are you did – after all, with over 14 million people tuning in it was the most watched SNL episode ever.

Benefitting majorly from that large audience was that night’s musical guest, Adele.  She’s quite popular in the UK but her soulful song “Chasing Pavements” was released in the U.S. a few months ago with only moderate success.  Since that SNL performance her song has skyrocketed up the charts and she’s now looking for a place in New York to call home, at least for a while.

I spoke to Adele this week about her SNL experience, what it’s like to be so successful at a young 19 years old, and other stuff – check out our conversation by clicking HERE.

Adele will be at The Park West on January 19, 2009.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (Saturday, November 1) at 10a – but you can get your tickets with a special internet presale today (Friday, October 31) until 10pm if you go to www.WTMX.com and sign up to be a “Mix Insider”.

 After a decade of being a must have item in your home or office, Lora Fosberg has put together a one of a kind collection.                                                

“The End of the Beginning” is a work of art… literally!  This is not your normal novel of romance, scandals and mysteries although with a vivid imagination anything is possible.

                                                               Lora Fosberg

Dressed in all black, surrounded by fans and friends on dramatic black leather booths with spotlights directly on the anticipated 9X12 masterpiece, this was no doubt Fosberg’s beginning to a night of memories.  Before the interview I took an opportunity to glance the pages as if I was strolling a galleria and each page turned, art became more alive.  It has solace, laughter and sensuality which are all characters of her bubbly personality.

Then log onto www.lorafosberg.com to see this eco-friendly collection.  Also, a quick shout to “SPYBAR” for holding the book-signing.  Classy, Sophisticated and Elite! Great spot for mingling, after work drinks, private parties or to be around A Lister’s in Chicago!
