Not sure of the purpose of these posts. I had only one interaction with Kristen. Before a concert in Milwaukee, she was visiting with a friend (might be from the area). My daughter asked her to go backstage and get Lindsey to sign a photo, and she obliged and seemed very pleasant.

For what it is worth, the Stevie bashing on the Rumours board is in poor taste (and I am not a Stevie fan).
For what it's worth I'm not bashing anybody. I'm just explaining what her Twitter account says. Thanks for explaining everything with so much detail.

I'm glad you have a nice experience with her. I also don't understand the need to tell me this when I didn't say anything bad about her.

I guess Stevie's fans and Lindsey's fans have more things in common than they think.

Probably both are over-sensitive - including myself. I usually just wait for Elle to respond to any potentially disparaging LB comments (not that yours were, I likely just mis-interpreted some comments as "wife hate" - criticism comes with the territory as an artist or public figure, but comments about family members crosses the line in my opinion).

I think he started writing less about obvious personal things, like this happened, then this etc and he would instead get like an idea from something/someone and write a song around it.

Like Oh Diane, what even is that.
i think Lindsey's lyrics got immensely better in the 90s, at the time he was writing GOS1 songs. much stronger lyrics, with layers of meanings in many of his songs since then.

there was a story that at the time of Rumours he'd write a sentence on the piece of paper, tear the paper in individual words, and give each word to someone to make a new sentence around it, and then he'd use those sentences for his verses.

me too, i like his 3 songs on the EP. but only 2 were really finished, ITT was thrown in haphazardly. that's why i think it's good that SN didn't in the end agree to the FM album - because it would be haphazardly put together, like SYW and EP were. i think (i hope!) that BuckVie album will actually be cohesive, something we didn't get from not-quite-successfully-compromising Buck Nicks combo in the last few decades.

An interior designer helps you pick fabrics, furnishings and artwork. It is very much akin to the fashion industry, but for homes and buildings instead of personal garments.

Sorry to be anal, but being in the construction business, I am very attuned to the reponsibilities and obligations of design professionals.
I know what an LLC is. I own one. The instagram account uses #kbarchitecture or #kristenbuckinghamarchitecture on all the photos of the houses being built and decorated by the owner, Kristen Buckingham. That's what the comment was in reference to. I know what it entails to be an architect, which is precisely why I was calling it out. I know what an interior designer is. Thanks for all the info.

I don't think she's a designer with a particularly large amount of clients, probably because it doesn't seem like she had much of a 'design education'. It seems like they buy houses, she decorates them, and then they sell them. Like how a rich person becomes a designer basically.

Because KB was a photographer originally when she met LB, is that correct? Has any of her photography portfolio ever come to light....I'd like to see it.
I find her interior design work a bit intense though and I feel if I sat in one of her designed living rooms I'd get a headache straight away with so much contrasting colour and texture going on.....

Default Holiday Road

Holiday Road was the background to a Postcards from Trump segment last night on Stephen Colbert. It plays fine for me on FB, I lost sound on the CBS page, but share links nonetheless

Default 15 Amusing Keith Urban Facts

http://countryfancast.com/15-keith-urban-facts/

15 AMUSING KEITH URBAN FACTS

by Sarah Netemeyer ‐ July 13, 2017

photo: Evan Agostini / Invision

There's a lot you may not know about the country music superstar. Check out this collection of fifteen Keith Urban facts and expand your knowledge!

Country music star Keith Urban, 49, has won over legions of fans across the globe due to his natural musical talent, songwriting abilities, stint as a judge on American Idol— and of course his good looks combined with an awesome accent doesn’t hurt either.

The country music sensation has been on the Nashville music scene since 1992 and broke out as a solo act in 1999 with the release of his self-titled album Keith Urban. That record was certified Platinum in the United States and produced his first No.1 hit with “But for the Grace of God.”

Presently, Urban recently celebrated his 11th wedding anniversary with wife Nicole Kidman in June and will be turning the big 5-0 in October.

Think you know everything about the guitar-slinging stud with a golden voice? Well, these fifteen Keith Urban facts are a bit obscure…

#1 Favorite creative session snack: Fried Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

#2 Songwriting hideout: The shower. Yes, he writes in the shower— let that sink in for a minute…

#3 Go-to writing apparatus: The singer always writes down his songs in ink pen. No pencil or typing for Mr. Urban.

#4 Educational background: Keith Urban dropped out of high school at just 15-years-old. Thank goodness he’s a guitar prodigy…

#5 First song ever fully learned: “House Of The Rising Sun” by The Animals, 1964 (Keith himself can teach it to you in the video below…)


#6 Place of birth: He’s known as being an Australian country music singer, but Keith Urban was actually born in Whangarei, New Zealand. (pronounced “Wong-A-Ray”)

#7 Childhood nickname: Keith was dubbed “Suburban” because he was the second of two sons. Get the family joke? Sub-Urban?

#8 Musical talent: Besides the guitar, Urban can play bass, drums, piano, ganjo (a six-string banjo), and sitar.

#9 Early Nashville gig: After arriving in the United States, Keith wasn’t legally allowed to take a non-music job. He found work as a road guitarist for Brooks & Dunn, the Dixie Chicks, and Alan Jackson. Fans can spot a very young Urban featured in the music video for Jackson’s 1993 hit “Mercury Blues.” (He’s the one with crazy long hair…)


#10 Keith Urban’s pet peeves: People who don’t look him in the eye when they shake his hand and people who don’t clean out the dryer’s lint filter.

#11 Cameo appearance: The country star sang backing vocals on INXS’s live album Live Baby Live, which was released in 1992.

#12 Across the pond: In 2005, Urban performed in front of European audiences for the first time.

#13 Early inspiration: Urban’s guitar playing was influenced by two rock artists, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

#14 Notes from his muse: His latest album Ripcord takes its name from a play and the title was suggested to him by his wife Nicole Kidman.

#15 Surprising admission: Despite his longtime love of music, he claims he doesn’t know how to actually read music.

Now you really are an expert on all things Keith Urban. Congrats! Be sure to share these fun facts with other fans of the “Blue Ain’t Your Color” singer!

Kobalt Capital raises $600m to buy new music copyrights

Kobalt Capital, the UK fund run by music-publishing company Kobalt, has raised $600m to acquire new copyrights.
The funding round has been led by Railpen, the railways pension fund. It is the second time that the Kobalt Fund has tapped investors after it raised $350m in 2011 and acquired a series of rights including those owned by The B52s, Fleetwood Mac songwriter Lindsey Buckingham, and 18,000 songs owned by Nettwerk including hits by Sinead O’Connor and 10,000 Maniacs.

The fund, which is run by former hedge fund manager Johan Ahlstroem, is separate to the main Kobalt business, which prides itself on allowing its artists to keep their own copyrights.

Financial investors have clamoured for valuable music copyrights in recent years as the price of catalogues rose sharply.

Willard Ahdritz, founder of Kobalt, said: “The music industry has a strong growth story. Recorded music will grow three times in size and that will flow down to 5 per cent growth in publishing.”

He said that Kobalt’s database means it can put a value on publishing assets for the Kobalt Fund and that it turned down 75 per cent of the acquisitions it considered in the first round. “It’s like real estate. Are you going to buy south of the river or not,” he said.

Kobalt’s main business has raised money twice this year, valuing the Waterloo, London-based company at almost $1bn.

The Dutch version of Top of the Pops was absolutely wild

A vast YouTube archive reveals the weird, wonderful and sometimes genius parallel universe of TopPop – the Netherlands’ anything-goes answer to Top of the Pops.

Think of a band, any band, so long as they had an international chart hit in the 1970s or 80s. There is a pretty good chance that band lip-synced that song on the Dutch music television show TopPop. There is an even better chance that the performance in question is incredibly bloody weird.

The Dutch answer to the UK’s Top of the Pops was broadcast from 1970 to 1988, featuring the latest hits from both domestic and international artists. Since few international acts included the Netherlands on their tour schedules, filming of a lot of the international performances was outsourced to studios in the US or UK. Across the board, little to no creative boundaries appear to have been put in place.

The official TopPop YouTube channel hosts more than a thousand (and still growing) performances which run the spectrum from pure class to utter depravity. Almost all of them feature one or more of the following: bizarre or inappropriate stage props, creative green screen techniques, appallingly lackluster attempts at pretending to play an instrument, unjustifiably bad fashion, strangely hypnotic dance routines… In other words it is a digital treasure trove containing some of the greatest and most creative music videos from a time before music videos were even a thing.

Please enjoy the following examples.

Lindsey Buckingham – ‘Trouble’ (1982)


A strong contender for the surliest and most reluctant performance ever recorded for TopPop as Fleetwood Mac genius Lindsey Buckingham suffers his way through solo hit ‘Trouble’, unconvincingly miming the song’s flamenco guitar flourishes on an electric guitar. The only other person in the studio who cared less about their job appears to be in charge of the lighting.
