I haven't watched SNL in awhile. I heard that after Pardo left the show, clips of his voice were still used on the show.

Meanwhile, in other news...

He was at NBC for SEVENTY years. Amazing. Big, booming voice and a wonderful sense of humor (witness I'm The Slime and The Illinois Enema Bandit). Take it away, Don Pardo!

Tsk- What a drag. Glen was good on his instrument and had a cool look during those early Tull years which probably helped to sell the band. Uniquely himself. I guess things in the Jethro Tull world are coming full circle now that Ian has recently dissolved the band. Glen is now the first of the original lineup to leave this mortal coil. Goodbye old friend. 8)

David Anderle, A&R for Frank Zappa, Beach Boys & More, Dies at 77

Image

David Anderle, the A&R executive who worked with Frank Zappa, the Beach Boys, Sheryl Crow and Aaron Neville during a 35-year career, died Monday of cancer at his Los Angeles home. He was 77.

A classmate of Herb Alpert and Lou Adler at Fairfax High School, Anderle served his longest stint at Alpert and Jerry Moss' A&M Records, where he worked with Rita Coolidge, Blues Traveler, Chris De Burgh, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Amy Grant and others. Anderle retired in 1999 when he was A&M senior VP of A&R.

Anderle's first job in music was at Auto Stereo, where he worked to get labels to transfer their catalogs to 8-track tapes. In 1964, he became West Coast talent director at MGM, which owned Verve Records at the time. After seeing Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention in 1965, Anderle pushed to get the act signed to the label, but met considerable resistance within Verve. Anderle convinced Tom Wilson to sign the Mothers and produce their album.

As the manager of Van Dyke Parks, Anderle became ensconced in Brian Wilson’s world in 1966 at the time of Pet Sounds and helped the Beach Boys create their own record label, Brothers Records, which he ran in its early days.

In 1968, he moved to Elektra as West Coast operations director, where he produced David Ackles, worked with Judy Collins on her repertoire, and dealt with the label’s rock acts such as the Doors and Love.

Two years later, he formed Willow Productions to bring acts to A&M, the company he would stay with until he retired to dedicate himself to painting. As a producer, Anderle worked with a diverse collection of artists, among them Kris Kristofferson, Booker T. Jones, the Circle Jerks, the Swimming Pool Q’s and Delaney & Bonnie.

While at A&M he became VP of Film Music in 1984 and worked as a music supervisor on the films Good Morning, Vietnam, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Scrooged.

Joan Rivers looked like something from a George Romero movie. But she was a ground breaker for blue comedy and women comedians in particular. I thought she was pretty cool and the world is a bit less funny with her pushing up daisies.

I'm afraid to say that Peter Cook had this to say about her:

CHRIS MORRIS: Is it not true that the reason you won't appear on television is because a crack pipe cannot be hidden?

PETER COOK: [long pause] It can be hidden, and I-I, I … am willing to own up to the errors that I've made, and if there's any young people listening -- for goodness sake, don't spend 1,000 pounds a day on crack, because you can get a lot cheaper than that in Leicester's Square.

MORRIS: So, on television, you would not be able to last without resorting to one of the tools of your addiction.

COOK: I would have to, after -- after, really, one and a half minutes to be realistic, and I think we are in the business of honesty here -- after one and a half minutes I would have to leave the studio unless the presenter himself … Unless he was able to inject me, which I think the viewer would, uh, would object to.

MORRIS: Well, there was a failed experiment on a talk show when you appeared with an intravenous device which came from beneath the chair.

COOK: I think you're confusing that with Joan Rivers, who did come from beneath a chair and I sat next to her.

MORRIS: That's right, yes.

COOK: But Joan is not a prescribed substance, she's just a pain in the arse.

"I’m sorry to have to report that after a short illness my dear friend Stuart Gordon died late last night, 28th August.

I had so many adventures with him in music and in life and his loss is nigh unbearable.

I have no other words for now."
