G.H. HARDING

TAYLOR HOUR — Interesting item in Roger Friedman’s always prescient Showbiz 411 yesterday: https://www.showbiz411.com/2022/10/31/billboard-says-taylor-swift-has-all-top-10-singles-but-actual-sales-total-is-sadly-anemic

Friedman says “It used to be, not that long ago, that singles would sell a million copies in one week. Not anymore. The record business is so hobbled, and has changed so much, that total sales of 21,400 is all you need.” Her’s right on the money, but though the game-board has changed, the music business will always survive.
Look at Bruce Springsteen’s new album, full of covers. Songs that have survived and truth be told, after Bruce’s release, they may be stronger than ever.
New artists, be they a Machine Gun Kelly , Ashley Suppa, Camila Cabello or Billie Eilish keep the business alive.
SHORT TAKES — Olivia Wilde’s widely-panned psychological drama Don’t Worry Darling (with boy toy of the moment Harry Styles) will air on HBO Max November 7 … Micky Dolenz’ DJ-character in the now lensing The Zombie Wedding is called DJ Cricket

White Lotus

We eagerly watched Mike White’s White Lotus-Season 2 premiere on HBO Sunday and really enjoyed it. I seemed to have gotten into the characters a bit quicker this time around. Michael Imperioli, Aubrey Plaza and Theo James were just great. According to early reports, their audience jumped 63%. Nice …

Ashley Suppa’s debut at NYC’s Cutting Room, set for Monday, November 14, looks to be SRO … Looks they’re recording a soundtrack album for the brand new Almost Famous on the great White Way. Here’s the official release via Brodwayworld.com, but no mention of a label affiliation. Odd for sure. https://playbill.com/article/almost-famous-dates-broadway-cast-album-release-drops-new-single-featuring-casey-likes
… btw: Almost Famous’ Cameron Crowe was quoted as saying the next production he’d like to bring to Broadway is Springsteen’s Born To Run
