Barbra Streisand



What can I say, I'm a gay man and have loved Streisand since I was a teenager.


NEW STREISAND - AUGUST 2011

WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND

 



SOMEWHERE   TELL HIM - with Celine Dion  
CRY ME A RIVER - watch her experssion as she LIVES the words.

I have seen Streisand live three times - twice at Wembley about 20 years ago and again at the O2 - 5 years ago, and on all occasions, it was spectacular - and as a friend said - 'Well it IS Streisand - it's hardly Lulu... ' ( not that there is anything wrong with Lulu - but it's hardly the same thing). After wanting to see her live for several decades, it was such a thrill and a very special life's ambition to see her live and I shall dine out oin the stories of those special evenings for ever more.  I also paid a fortune some years ago to attend the Royal Gala Evening of the 'Prince of Tides'  attended by  Diana,Princess of Wales and the full crew of the movie and Streisand sat not 20 feet from me ... and that was a thrill and a half.  I had to rent a tux and took a friend with me and it was another special occasion I shall never forget.

A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines. United apparently damaged his treasured Taylor guitar ($3500) during a
flight. Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar.

During his final
exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for youtube exposing their lack of cooperation.
he Manager responded: "Good luck with that one, pal." So he posted a retaliatory video on YouTube. The video has since received over 6 million hits. United Airlines contacted the musician and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally his response was:   "Good luck with that one, pal." 

Taylor Guitars sent the musician 2 new custom guitars in appreciation for
the product recognition from the video that has led to a sharp increase in orders.
Here's the video
