HUDSON HAWK DOWN — After the embarrassing Oscar’s, the saddest news of the week comes from actor Bruce Willis, who is retiring from action due to his diagnosis of aphasia. A horrible affliction: it robs one of memories, motor skills and speech. A sad, sad end for a pretty good actor and a great friend.
I first met Willis eons ago when I hosted an event at a long-gone club called Kamikaze in Lower-Manhattan … he was the bartender and from what I remember, really kept me going that night, as being the editor of a new magazine called Flash (Sterling Publications) and it being our launch party, it was a severely hectic evening.
Madonna attended with then-bf Jellybean Benitez;  as well as Coati Mundi from Kid Creole & The Coconuts; and, celeb-scribe Mark Bego too. It was a massive success.
Bruce was just a delight as he moved to the then hot-outpost Café Central and soon began to land TV-parts and commercials. Next up was a tremendous stint on TVs Miami Vice (No Exit-1984) and then Moonlighting with Cybill Shepherd.. The die-was cast and he was a huge star. The movie Die Hard followed and cemented his popularity.
I didn’t see him as much during those halcyon years, but we kept in touch. He became somewhat of a regular at Danny Fried’s China Club when it was on the Upper West Side.
A sad, sad end for a true talent One of a kind, my Bruno!

Donnie Kehr

SHORT TAKES — Piano Man Donnie Kehr kicks off Playbill and the Times Square Alliance’s The Grand Gallery next Thursday, April 7. This installation (at 47th and 8th) is a groundbreaking partnership between Times Square Alliance, Playbill and 21 productions on Broadway and Off-Broadway, that are celebrating and supporting the theater season upon us. Kehr will also close the event with another performance … New Harry Styles album, Harry’s House with the single coming Friday, “As It Was.” I like Styles; next to Brandi Carlile, I think he’s the one true-new star we have. No question. He and his band did a riveting performance of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” on a Howard Stern-interview; I hope their version is on the new album … Randy Klein’s Jazzheads Music Group reports a huge-week of sales for their Rockers On Broadway LIVE album …
