20 Feet From Stardom

Look just beyond the spotlight, listen to the background singers whose hard work and talent lend strength and elegance to the lead singers who get the credit. Meet at 3:45 for the 4:10 showing. Find us in the seating area nearest the ticket counter. If you have difficulty locating us, please phone me at (608) 712-3754. My phone will be off when we're in the theater, but you can find us on the way out of the theater or catch us at dinner at Sa-Bai Thong.

    Sting talked about seeing so much talent and so much hard work in the music world. Ultimately, he didn't know if it was dumb luck or fate or something else that made people and broke people. It was kind of beautiful to see Springsteen sing backup for Darlene Love. It was hard to hear phenomenal people summed up as "member of Raelettes (Ray Charles backup singers)" or "member of Ikettes (Ike Turner backup singers)". Striking frequency of male "lead" and female "backup" without many prominent instances of the opposite dynamic.

      Welcome to the real world! But I also thought Mick and Lisa came across as a team and not her as back-up. And he obviously appreciated the hell out of her.
