Musicians Note Mistreatment in Plea to Josh Groban

November 9, 2018

Chalk one up for the thirsty local tabloid.

The multi-talented Josh Groban is coming to town, as Isaac Feldberg’s interview with him in today’s Boston Globe informs us.

“Bridges” is a fitting title for Josh Groban’s latest album, considering how many he has crossed in recent years . . . [S]etting out on a nationwide arena tour this fall in support of “Bridges” — with Tony-winning “Wicked” star Idina Menzel opening — feels to Groban something like slipping into a familiar old suit and discovering it still fits him neatly. Ahead of the “Believe” singer’s TD Garden stop Friday, Groban spoke from his Los Angeles home — where he was happily savoring the last days of a much-needed “staycation” with his longtime canine companion, Sweeney — about how the recent side ventures informed one of his most dynamic discs to date.

 

Not so sunny-side-up, however, is this full-page ad from today’s Boston Herald.

The We-Get-Peanuts graf:

From his Twitter feed, at least, it seems Groban can’t imagine any of it. (Don’t bother checking the Boston Musicians Twitter feed – it has all of three followers.)

If any of you splendid readers goes to the Groban shindig tonight, let us know how the vibe onstage is, wouldya? We’re guessing not too harmonious.

Globe Win Friday’s Ricki Noel Lander Bakeoff

January 26, 2013

Friday’s Boston Globe won the Robert Kraft Girlfriend Sweepstakes with this minimally juicy item:

Ricki Noel Lander, also known as Patriots owner Bob Kraft’s girlfriend, walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of “Movie 43” on Wednesday night. Lander has two small parts in the ensemble comedy, which was co-directed by Rhode Island’s own Peter Farrelly. Also at the screening were Farrelly’s pal (and Martha’s Vineyard regular) Larry David and Boston-bred actor Neal McDonough.

 

Friday’s Boston Herald landered no such story.

To be fair, though, the Herald’s Track Gals (without Megan!) did have Bruins Ice Girls Kasey of Stoneham and Emilie of Attleboro prepping for Night at the Fights at the Garden.

Once again, the local dailies battle to a tie.

Sweet.
