Home Music New Springsteen Video Here; James McCartney 1st American Tour

Lots of music news this morning: James McCartney, son of Paul, is finally in the spotlight. He’s performing twice at Sundance at the ASCAP Cafe, and then launching his first American tour. He comes to New York’s Rockwood Club on February 1st. He’ll also be playing “Letterman” that week. James has always been something of a mystery, with sister Stella a huge fashion designer, and Mary and Heather already known for their various activities like photography and pottery. But James has held back. In the last couple of years he’s had low profile releases on ITunes and has built a fan base. Now, bully for him, he’s ready to go wider. A press release says “the shows are in honor of his recent release, ‘The Complete EP Collection’ (Engine Company), which combines McCartney’s two previous EP’s with five never-heard bonus tracks. The special two-disc set was produced by David Kahne and Paul McCartney.” Let’s wish him well. It isn’t easy for anyone in the music biz right now…

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN has a new album, due March 6th called “Wrecking Ball.” May we assume he’ll appear on the Grammy show February 12th (Let’s hope so.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3Bz0d2xm7U&feature=player_embedded#!
