Re: Additional date for Burt in London

I know it's exciting etc but I've seen Burt et al at the RFH before and will it be just the same? I'd prefer Dionne at the Cheltenham Jazz fesival!! Sorry to stir!

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Hi Blair .. yes sadly a lot of 'At This Time' is forgettable. What did you make of 'Painted From Memory' with Elvis Costello? Perhaps the problem with Dionne's 'Friends' album was the surprise hit of 'That's What Friends Are For' and Clive Davis's instinct to quickly launch an album on the back of it?

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Honestly Blair .. thought better of you! It's fabulous 'Stronger Than Before' .. great song and VOICE! Absolutely hate all this doom watcher end of an era stuff ... we are only here one time around so make the most of it.

Re: I rest my case:-)

Enormous BB Fan .... how can anyone expect personal attention from a performer back stage or otherwise after their concerts etc? In my experience they are usually on an adrenaline high, exhausted and sweating with one objective ,,, a drink and a shower!! Funnily enough your comment summed up your an...

Re: Behavior like this can turn a person off

Well done GehVorbei!! I'm on your side the whole way. One thing for sure ... Dionne's dominating a lot of space on Mr B's website discussion forum!! He doesn't seem to be complaining too loudly! More talk than he even gets! Gosh you sound so angry B2B ... I wish you'd tell us who you are as you take...

Re: Dionne Files for Bankruptcy

nce again I have to agree with GehVorbei! I completely disagree with Blair ... I would like to know who the 'independent sources' are and when he says 'first hand knowlwdge' ,, by whom? These forums unfortunately are breeding grounds for the likes of you Blair and you B2B who sound as if you have al...

Re: Dionne Files for Bankruptcy

I am sorry but I don't agree with you at all about Dionne's character! I don't think BtoB has all the facts either. What is this 'insider' knowledge and where does it come from? A previous contributor also queried this. It's all very questionable and if he is on the 'inside' he must be being very di...

Re: Dionne Files for Bankruptcy

Well, well ... what will be left of Dionne? I'm finding it difficult to read the systematic destruction of this fine lady's character on this forum. First it's her voice, then her smoking and now it's her 'compulsive' spending etc ... soon there won't be anything left. What is the point? Why not bri...

Re: Dionne Files for Bankruptcy

An interesting point BBfan. What's the real truth on this BtoB? What happens to homes in USA and Brasil etc How do the bankruptcy implications work? Destitute implies 'on the street'.
