Here’s a TV programming note. All this upcoming week on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” they’ll be saluting Elvis Presley. I’ll be there on Friday night singing with my buddy Paul Shaffer in tribute to Elvis. I haven’t performed with Paul on Letterman since 1987, so I’m “pumped.”
Also, on Saturday February 9th I’ll be in Red Bank, NJ at the Count Basie Theatre with Lewis Lymon, Dickie Harmon, Joe Rivera (the “New Teenchords) along with Terry Johnson’s Flamingos, Willie Winfield & the Harptones, the Chantels, Kenny Vance & the Planotones, Lenny Dell & the Demensions and Cleveland Still & the Dubs. It’s gonna be a great show.
BTW, check out Aaron Neville’s new CD on the Bluenote Record Label entitled “My True Story.” It’s produced by Don Was of “Was Not Was,” and Keith Richards of the “Rolling Stones.” Background vocals provided by Eugene Pitt, Dickie Harmon, Joel Katz and yours truly. I think you’ll like it. I know Ron Kovacs does. So you see, I’ve been very busy I’ll see you on the radio, on the CBS Televison Network or in person in Red Bank, NJ, but I’ll see you later gator, and may the best team win in New Orleans.
