Hey Old Timer Gossip:
A "Where Are They Now?" for 50s and 60s rockers.

Publication: Globe
Date: 13 June 2011

Fresh trash tomorrow! Last trash of the week... right now!

The Globe puts a mess of old rock and rollers on the cover and in no way assumes that any of them are one step from the grave. They have pictures of Bobby Rydell, Chuck Berry, Brenda Lee and a "guess who?" of a "rockin' grandma" who is pretty obviously Grace Slick. The meanest part of this generally not mean nostalgia is bringing up the comfy shoe orientation of Leslie Gore, a fact she confirmed in 2005, though people who read the Globe may not have heard the news just yet.

Hey! It's her party and she'll cry if she wants to!

You would cry, too, if it happened to you.

I thought it was pretty much a confirmed fact that Gore wore the comfy shoes. I seem to recall reading it in a lesbo mag like Curve or something.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

You are correct. I'll edit the post.

There may be some of her old fans who don't read those magazines, so the Globe is just spreading the news to the people who want to hear it the least.

Bobby Rydell! I was just wondering whatever happened to Bobby.

Wonder if he still has that fabulous landscape on his head.
