Crazy fun with Oscar, Grammy Nominee, Stephen Bishop. We were voyeurs in his amazing home which houses Gold and Platinum Records, the back off the guitar John Belushi smashed in Animal House––signed by the entire cast, a pic of The Beatles, signed by The Beatles; a huge painting of Hendrix, ridiculously cool stuff everywhere. Nothing cooler than Stephen, who’s written over 650 songs… say what…. he sang one of his latest, Almost Home, the theme of the new Benji Movie on Netflix, the first song he ever wrote, a song sung with his first band, The Weeds, his version of a Jagger song, the theme of Animal House, and, the song he sang in the film, plus, the Theme of Tootsie, Separate Lives, and, oh yes, On and On! Hell yeah! Plus, Blue Window, from his latest CD, Blueprint. More than a mini-concert, with stories, stories, stories… Bette, Barbra, Whitney, Clapton, good friend of both of ours, James Lee Stanley, who was the first to record a Stephen tune, Art Garfunkle, who had Stephen sing on his version of my wedding song, a great Belushi story, his manager, Robert Ellis, married to Diana Ross, who was later my boss man, his recent tour of the Philippines, which has led to an upcoming documentary, It Might be You. Links below to the trailer, to Stephen’s book, Songs in The Rough, with amazing originals of huge hit songs from amazing artists; and, to his website, where you can find the keys to his kingdom, tour info, music, and merch. Special thanks to Liz Kamlet for making it all easy. Grateful for every moment.
