Say You, Say Nuts
Well it seems that Lionel Richie was able to headline a gig in . . . Libya. That's right, Lionel was performing at a concert in commemoration (?) of the 20th anniversary of the bombing there. See here. Also present, Jose Carreras, now officially known as "The Other Tenor." Declared Lionel, "Libya I love you, I'll be back." Glad to hear it. Perhaps this explains where he has spent the past 20 years. And I thought he had just fallen off the face of the earth, allowing Nicole to be raised by wolves.
Also and in (kind of) related news, did anyone notice that during the party scene in last week's Big Love, a rock cover version of Lionel's classic Hello was performed. It seems it was recorded by Me First and The Gimme Gimmes. You can buy the album here. I wonder if he mentioned any of this in Tripoli.
