Stevie Wonder To Play at DNC

So says one of the musicians that plays with him.

No word yet what night or what event. Will he be the intro at Obama's acceptance speech?

More music: Lifetime Networks and Rock the Vote will feature Ashanti at an Every Woman Counts event Tuesday night at the Cowboy Lounge.

The big Rock the Vote ballot bash is Monday night, followed by a private party. FALL OUT BOY, N*E*R*D and Jakob Dylan will headline the main event at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, while the official afterparty will feature D.J. Nick Cannon.

    And he's great.  Now, if you get Sir Paul to duet with him again on Ebony and Ivory, I'll switch away from classic movies.  My favorite channel these days.  Life seemed so simple then. . . .

    Here's my recommends:  The Visitor, documentary on Annie Liebowitz, and The Stone Angel.  Also finally saw Caddyshack all the way through.  Time for Animal House!

    in my town for the huge Harley blowout.  We just said bye to the Fonz, who came with the cast of Happy Days for a parade and dedication of the statue here now, the Bronze Fonz.  

    And now the Boss -- who rules here, with or without hundreds of thousands of bikers.  We're getting excited; what a great way to end the summer.  

    He must be leaving straight from my town to Denver then.  Let's see if thousands of Dems are as much fun for the Boss as all the Harley bikers.  Springsteen really responds to his audiences.

    Oh, and so does the Fonz.  Winkler is a love. :-)

    I think that this should be about the music that I'm must have been important to Obama from, say 1972-1976.  (When he would have been 11-15.)  

    "Superstition", "Living For the City", "Higher Ground", "You Haven't Done Nothin'".  That's the vital Stevie Wonder music for Obama's generation.  And it would be fitting for it to be showcased at his landmark day.

    In my opinion, anyway.
