    dIana - Glastonbury 2020

    This was the be the weekend where we saw Diana at Glastonbury doing a legends spot.

    I remember posting here that I wished she would be doing a performance with Nile Rodgers (confirmed I think by...

    They should have had Mary & Cindy at least in that ad - wouldn't have cost them too much more than the 'impersonators'.

    I remember - when I was DJ'ing - still a teen in the 80s - buying the 12" of Lovergirl.

    Seemed to me that some white girl vocalists - eg Kiki Dee - that Motown signed, the mix was not quite right...

    Wish I'd written a song that was a B-side to a song like Aretha's 'I Say A Little Prayer' ;)

    If you are the songwriter, did you actually even push for it being a B-side for her or was it just a...

    There weren't too many (any?) great Supremes albums. Not a surprise that Diana's first album was considered more of a 'concept album' though it wasn't still great. It probably took another 9 years...

    Yeah - in the (late) 70s Teenage Me used to buy NME & Melody Maker and some other UK 'pop rags'. Though they used to take a few months (sea mail) to get to Aussie stores they were always a good...

    NME Awards

    I was just reading about the British NME (New Musical Express) Awards.

    The magazine had it's (voted) awards each year (from 1953) and the poll-winners often performed at a live concert to mark the...

    That would be just fine, but still not sure how - with 50 years of material to pick from - Diana's lame covers of 'Fools' or 'Survive' could be seen as culturally significant to anyone.

    In Australia, music video shows started to become popular in the mid-70s, though many videos shown were from UK or European artists.

    The only early videos I can remember for an American artist...

    Yes, I saw this the other day and immediately noticed that 'Pops' error.

    A few strange choices in her list, but I guess we all have different tastes and it's kind of nice to see some different...

    I don't think praying achieves much but - in this case - I'm joining hands with you. Hope to hear from Blue soon.

    Who? What's a 'virtual reach'? Is this like the Kardashian 'influencers' who have not at all contributed to society or culture (other than in a money-grabbing way?)

    It's probably too sad if...

    Just a shame it didn't happen with Mary & Cindy. It would've been great to see them together once more with Diana and perhaps be able to watch a high-quality DVD release of the show.

    If the tour...

    Sounds sensible to just add one year to the entire itinerary.

    The worry is that the UK - along with the US - is one of the countries that seems to have locked down too late and is trying to return...

    It's why in this forum a year or so back - before she was confirmed to be playing Glastonbury - I'd suggested it would be great for her to do a complete version of 'diana' live with Nile Rodgers &...

    A great clip.

    At the top of their game, having returned from the European tour, before their debut at the Copa and before the major dramas.

    Cool read.

    Shame that all these 'pre-tour' type articles seem to be coming out and there's no tour. Waaah!

    Maybe it was this one. Strange that the other music video shows I watched at the time (being a teen, I watched a lot) never played it - the only time I ever saw it was when it hit #1 on Countdown.

    Although it only appears to have reached #25 in the Australian charts, I remember it being Top 10 in my city/state.

    It was played on the new top-rating FM radio station, despite them not having...

    This was the start of me becoming a Diana fan. I bought it only because I was a fan of Chic, but then rushed out to buy the two 'Twenty Golden Greats' compilations - by both The Supremes & Diana. ...
