He drew praise from film critics in for his starring performance in Crossover Dreams, an independent motion picture about a Latin singer whose attempts to go mainstream alienate his family and friends, leaving him nothing to return to when his efforts fail.
He has also acted in the film Waiting for Salazar, and provided musical scores for the documentaries When the Mountains Tremble and Caminos Verdes. Blades's goals are not limited to the entertainment fields, either. He writes political columns for a Panamanian newspaper and intends to return to Panama in the future and run for political office, perhaps even president.
He took time off from the music business in to obtain a Master of Law degree from Harvard University, in part so that no one can say he is just an entertainer with no background for politics.

Though singing seemed to run in her familyher grandmother had studied opera in Ireland, and both her parents had good voices and led the family in singing at the dinner tableBranigan had no ambitions to pursue a vocalist's career in her youth. In high school she was extremely shy; she did, however, enjoy singing harmony with friends and performing in her church choir. To help Branigan overcome her shyness, one of her teachers persuaded her to try out for the school musical in her senior year.
Branigan did, won the lead in Pajama Game, and discovered her calling. She reminisced for a Seventeen interviewer: "It was amazing. Once I was up there, I felt a tremendous confidence. I realized this was my way of expressing myselfand that was it.
At first she commuted from her parents' home, but then she moved to Manhattan and worked as a waitress to pay her rent and tuition. Branigan found in waitressing a form of preparation for performing that wasn't available in her classes.
And I learned how to ignore hecklers. After landing a job as a backup singer for Canadian folk artist Leonard Cohen and touring Europe with him, she decided to become a soloist. Knowing that her chances would be better if she had a good manager, she sought one. According to Sarah Crichton in Harper's, Bernstein started Branigan slowly, first featuring her in concerts held in his office for his friends, and gradually inviting record producers to these informal gatherings.
At first, this tactic was unsuccessful. Branigan recalled in Seventeen: "Everyone Despite this controversy, what Seventeen designated as Branigan's "smoky vibrato" voice struck a chord with pop audiences. The success of "Gloria" was followed in by another European-style hit, "Solitaire," originally done by another artist in France, and in Branigan had a smash with the title track from her third album, Self-Control. Though she has made her reputation by belting out danceable numbers, Branigan has also had success with ballads such as 's "Power of Love.

Eventually the company hired Jack White, a German producer famous for his efforts in what Crichton labels the "Euro-pop approach.
Before the single was released, White introduced Branigan to manager Susan Joseph. After talking to her, the singer became convinced that Joseph could represent her interests much better than Bernstein. Branigan switched managers, but while she.

Brown's ambitions, however, led him astray and into an 8- to year stint at the Alto Reform School Toccoa, Georgia in for armed robbery. After three and a half years, Brown found himself and, with the help of his friend Bobby Byrd, he was paroled. Once out, Brown joined Byrd's singing group, the Gospel Starlighters, which soon became the Flames and switched to rhythm and blues. Federal Records executive Ralph Bass found the group in Macon, Georgia, and brought them north to sign with his label in January of They released their first single that same year, "Please, Please, Please.
He said that I was out of my mind to bring Brown from Macon to Cincinnatiand pay his fare. And we put out that first record on Federal, not King. But then after 'Please' began to sell and made the chartsthat was in Syd sang a different tune.
Brown was way ahead of his time. He wasn't singing or playing musiche was transmitting feeling, pure feeling. Prior to this, the band had been imitating other groups like the Midnighters, the Drifters, and the Five Royals. Realizing that their own material was just as good, Brown asked Nathan if he could record with his own touring band the J.
So, under the name of Nat Kendrick and the Swans, they released 's instrumental hit " Do the Mashed Potato" on another label. Former tour manager Alan Leeds told Rolling Stone that Brown would "make them suffer until they needed a James Brown record so badly that they'd take whatever he gave them.
Appeared in motion picture "Ski Party," Formerly owned and was president of J. Broadcasting, Ltd. Addresses: HomeBeech Island, S. And, after a year-long court fight with King, Brown won the right to control almost every aspect of his career. In he recorded "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," probably the epitome of Brown's sound, influential not only during the '60s but the 70s as well: shucking rhythm guitars, choppy bass lines, one-chord vamps and a horn section that blasted like a roll of fire-crackers.
Solos were nearly out of the question; rhythm was the key. By Brown was managing his own career and even had his own record company. His insistence on control had both positive and negative aspects though. Brown could craft a song down to the most minute detail by actually singing the way he wanted parts to be played to each musician and at one point the band totaled 30 members! Sometimes he took credit for ideas he did not originate but made into his own, which has caused resentment among members like Byrd, who co-wrote many of the hits.
Nevertheless, as Brown's associate Bob Patton told Rolling Stone, "If you took James away, the band could play the tunes, but they didn't have the spark. He made the engine run.
Damn near burn it out sometimes. His social position was elevated also by his astute business dealings, which included ownership of fast-food franchises, radio stations, a booking agency, publishing companies, and a Lear jet. He became, according to The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock, "the first and most potent symbol of black America. Brown's own style was too raw though to be lumped in with the techno-slick groups of the s.

The Famous Flames honed their live shows to perfection by playing one-night stands throughout the South. The word took years to spread, but by James Brown Show Live at the Apollo was number 2 on Billboard's album charts.
The James Brown Revue had become the tightest, most spectacular rhythm and blues act ever. The musicians were fined by Brown for anything less than razor-sharp precision while "Mr. Dynamite" himself virtually defined the standard for showmanship. His "Please" finale found him on his knees, seemingly spent, while the Flames would drape a cape over his shoulders and help to lead him offstage.
But he would only get a few feet before the cape was hurled off and he fell back to the floor, gripping the microphone and pleading once again.

Campbell left high school in the tenth grade, telling Newsweek: "I woke up in school one day and saw that they weren't teaching me how to play and sing, so I quit.

The eldest daughter of Johnny Cash has been performing since she was eighteen, recently forging a name for herself outside the shadow of her famous father.
But if that's where your talent lies, it's dumb not to pursue it. Doctors' children become doctors. It shouldn't be all that strange that Johnny Cash's child likes to sing. Cash says little about her childhood, except to note in Stereo Review that her father "was bigger than life. She was twelve years old when her parents divorced. A rebellious teen growing up in southern California, Cash began to experiment with drugs when she was fourteen. She has described her musical tastes at the time as "the same stuff most kids listened to" in California, including the Beatles.
At eighteen, right out of high school, she joined her father's entourage and began to travel and perform with him. This, she said in Stereo Review, was a mixed blessing. I got to the point where I was doing a couple of songs, but it was still playing for his crowd and it was still cute for his daughter to be up.

Signed with Columbia Records, Reflecting on her chart-topping album Rhythm and Romance, which contained songs about the near-dissolution of her marriage, Cash told Alanna Nash: Smoky Mountain Rain - Denny Morgan* - #2 Son (Vinyl have to pick songs that I feel relate to me personally. I don't think I could ever just do a song for ulterior motives.

At some point, you have to fall on your face. Finally she quit the show and enrolled in Vanderbilt University, where she majored in English and drama. The following year she moved to Hollywood to study in Lee Strasberg's noted drama school, hoping to become an actress.
Although she was too shy to study with Strasberg directly, she did take courses with his associates, describing the experience as "great. She travelled to Munich to cut the album, facing bitter disappointment when the German producers forced "stiff arrangements" on her. The album, Right or Wrong, was deemed a critical success by both country and rock critics. As a husband and wife team, Cash and Crowell have produced most of Cash's albums and have contributed original songs to all of them.
The 42 Contemporary Musicians Volume 2. Cash jokingly calls her sound "Punktry," an unlikely fusion of country and punk rock. The whole thing is a package deal. They might as well turn it into a handbook and give it to you as you enter the business. And I just don't buy it! I don't buy it at all! I think there's individual ways to approach life and success.
She lives quietly with her family in a spacious log home near Nashville, content to confine her creativity to songwriting, recording, and an occasional concert or television appearance. Cash told Esquire magazine: "Country music might have chosen me, rather than the other way around. I think I'm helping move country to the next logical step. You see, country-music listeners are much more sophisticated now.
So much has happened since Hank Williams. They're more world-wise, more cosmopolitan, I guess. My music is that, I think country, but world-wise. Seven Year Ache, Columbia. King's Record Shop, Columbia, HitsColumbia, Periodicals Esquire, July, Newsweek, August 12, People, September 6, Rolling Stone, February 25, Stereo Review, May, With the release of Union, her solo debut album, she has been favorably compared to rock and folk artisans such as Van Morrison, Joan Armatrading, and Phoebe Snow.
Her early years, spent there and in small towns in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, were not especially conducive to developing her musical talentsher parents were strict Christian fundamentalists who forbade her to listen to rock or pop music, "or even go to the movies. There was a lot I missed out on," she confided to Cocks. She was also unhappy in school, due to a dyslexic reading disorder that went undiagnosed and caused her to be placed in classes for slow learners. But despite her troubles, Childs's aptitude for music began to show through; she started writing songs when she was fourteen.
Because she did not know how to play a musical instrument at the time later she learned guitar and bassshe tried to write a musical solely for voice; the story concerned a mermaid. There had been other problems as well; when she was twelve, the man she thought was her biological father divorced her motherbefore he left he revealed that he had only been stepfather to Childs and her brothers, and that a man who had been introduced as a friend of the family was their real father.
Her mother remarried again, and Childs did not get along well with her second stepfather. She told Seventeen that he "didn't have a good grip on who he was.
You love your mother, you want to make her life better, but after a point you can't really help, and you have to go. She worked odd jobs to live; she served as a nanny, and did chores in a commune that fed her for her work. Childs began listening to rock then, too, and found herself admiring the work of David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd. Singer, songwriter, ; founder of group Toni and the Movers, ; worked for Island Music in the early s; solo recording artist and concert performer, One night, at about the same time, Childs was in a southern California roller rink and the band performing there allowed her to see what her voice sounded like through a microphone.
A few years later, Childs began singing with rock bands herself, and by was the leader of Toni and the Movers. As John Milward put it in an article for Mademoiselle, the group "was for [Childs] the living out of a loud, raunchy rock-and-roll fantasy, complete with skunk-drunk performances and plenty of LSD.
Childs spent three months in a federal prison, with fellow inmates like former members of the infamous Charles Manson family, and heiress-turnedbrainwashed terrorist Patricia Hearst. The experience reformed her: "It was a very big scare-the-hell-out-ofme situation," she told Cocks. A short time after this, Childs gave up on Toni and the Movers and went to England, where she worked for Island Music. He would become Union's associate producer, and helped Childs write many of the album's songs; further, the ups and downs of Child's sixteenmonth love affair with him would serve as the basic theme of the album.
Union took three years to complete, partially because. Childs and Ricketts searched in countries such as Zambia and Swaziland to obtain what Marianne Meyer termed in Rolling Stone "the perfect atmospheric washes and ethnic accents. Also recorded a single with Toni and the Movers. Sources Mademoiselle, September, People, June 27, Rolling Stone, June 2, ; January 26, Seventeen, January, Time, June 6, Rock pioneers who made their television debuts on Clark's show include Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry, and Clark's influence has extended into the latter days of rock and pop, giving him the privilege of hosting the first television appearances of more modern superstars, such as Prince and Madonna.
Clark has also branched out from strictly musical ventures into more general areas of television and film production and has gained a respected reputation with the heads of major networks for delivering successful projects on time and within budget limitations. As Nikki Finke Greenberg summed up in Newsweek, "In every aspect of the business, Clark shows himself to be a committed, hardworking professional. This ambition intensified when his older brother, Bradley, was killed in World War II, leaving Clark to fight grief and loneliness by listening to radio programs like "Make Believe Ballroom" and "Battle of the Baritones.
Clark became popular in high school, serving as class president and being voted "Man Most Likely to Sell the Brooklyn Bridge. The young man worked at the station, WRUN, taking care of the mimeographing and the mailroom. When a weather announcer went on vacation, Clark was Smoky Mountain Rain - Denny Morgan* - #2 Son (Vinyl to substitute; eventually he was promoted to broadcasting station breaks and reading the news on the AM affiliate.
InClark matriculated at Syracuse University. Though his major was advertising, he took a minor in radio, and served as a disc jockey on the university's student radio station, WAER-FM. Just before his graduation he did weekend work as a news announcer and disc jockey for a country-music segment on a commercial Syracuse station.
Soon after Clark graduated inhe returned to Utica and took a job at a small television station. WKTV was such a tiny setup that Clark found himself involved in almost every facet of its operation, including writing commercials and changing scenery backdrops. More importantly, he was the host of a country-music program called "Cactus Dick and the Santa Fe Riders.
Education: Graduated from Syracuse University in Has produced and appeared in films and authored books, including an autobiography. Addresses: ResidenceMalibu, Calif. Olive Ave. The name was changed to "American Bandstand," but the program kept its format of dancing teenagers, record playing, and star appearances and interviews. The dancers started national dance crazes such as the twist, the Watusi, and the stroll.
Clark also did a weekly nighttime program which traveled to cities throughout the United States; one of these editions of "The Dick Clark Saturday Night Show," done in Atlanta, was also one of the first racially integrated rock concerts in the South and was picketed by the Ku Klux Klan. He invested heavily in the music industry, forming the music-publishing firms Sea Lark and January. He knew the station had a television affiliate, and exposure in Philadelphia was a step up from exposure in Utica.
He was soon given his own daily radio show, "Dick Clark's Caravan of Music. Meanwhile, WFIL's television affiliate had spawned a popular afternoon music program called "Bandstand. And when Horn was jailed for drunk driving the following year, Clark became the show's permanent host. Within a year, Clark's presence had helped transform "Bandstand" into Philadelphia's best-known daily television show, and the American Broadcasting Corpora. Music and starting Swan Records.
He had to divest himself of these businesses, however, at the request of ABC, when he came under investigation by a U. Congress subcommittee during the payola scandal of the late s and early s. Payola referred to the taking of money for playing new records, and though Clark did not do this, his holdings in the music business were perceived as a conflict of interest. Though the program was still going strong in the s, Clark himself lost interest in music during the psychedelic era.
He began to branch out into other areas of television, including game shows like "Missing Links" and "The Object Is. As Clark tried to become a larger force in the television industry, however, the youthful good looks that enabled him to be a convincing host for his teen-oriented show worked against him.
As Greenberg reports, "for many years he couldn't get anyone to take him seriously. Eventually, in the late s, he began to close large deals with the major television networks. At one time, according to Christopher P. Andersen in People, "only he simultaneously [hosted] hit shows on all three networks and in syndication. Though he is now seen as a major figure in television, who can be counted on to produce shows that get good Nielsen ratings, Clark has garnered some criticism for the lack of quality in his productions.
He claims he provides what the television audience wants, and gave this rebuttal to Greenberg: "If I were given the assignment of doing a classical-music hour for PBS, it would be exquisite and beautifully done.
On the subject of his youthful appearance, which has lasted for decades, "America's oldest living teenager" told Andersen, "It's.
They're constantly told how wonderful they look, but it gets to be a drag after a while, because someday the looks have gotta go. It would be nice to be allowed to age gracefully. Periodicals Newsweek, August 18, People, January 27, Phil Collins, a plain, balding rock drummer, would rather let his songs speak for him.
Since the late s Collins has served as the lead singer for the British rock band Genesis, and he has simultaneously enjoyed a dramatic solo career complete with Grammy Awards and a long string of Top Ten hits. The affable Collins has also achieved a measure of critical respect beyond the bounds usually accorded to pop musicians; many of his mysterious, wrenching songs about heartbreak and suspicion are hailed for their revolutionary use of rhythm.
New York Times correspondent Stephen Holden notes that Collins has "defined a new relationship between rock rhythm, singing and songwriting in which. Collins is especially adept at sustaining a mood of suspense, often heavily tinged with menace.
