Tuning in to TV
Question of the Day
Jon Bon Jovi sings for N.Y. firefighters
Rocker Jon Bon Jovi returned to a Manhattan firehouse Wednesday to pay tribute to firefighters marking the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
According to the Associated Press, the New Jersey native was filmed singing “America the Beautiful” by an NBC television crew preparing for a special “NFL Kickoff 2011: Back to Football” show Saturday. The joint NFL Network/NBC Sports production features football, music and a tribute to 9/11 first responders.
He sang the same song for a performance that aired nationally on Sept. 23, 2001, prior to the kickoff of the first NFL games after the terrorist attacks. Mr. Bon Jovi said in an interview after Wednesday’s performance that it was “as moving this time as it was then.”
Mr. Bon Jovi said firefighters who were there a decade ago, as well as police officers from a nearby precinct, came to the taping at Engine Co. 8, Ladder 2. He said he felt some of the same camaraderie that he felt in 2001.
“I want the country of Sept. 12th again, when everybody came together,” he said. “We said we’d never forget and now we can live up to it.”
Cooking show may be next for Zac Brown Band
At most of their concerts, the Zac Brown Band offers fans more than burgers and chicken fingers. Instead, they have a team of chefs prepare what the group’s leader calls “real, Southern gourmet.”
Now, according to the Associated Press, Zac Brown may be taking his love for food to television.
“We’ve talked about it,” Mr. Brown said about possibly doing a cooking show for TV. “We’ve filmed a lot of the stuff, a lot of the cooking elements of our stuff to possibly put a show together, and we definitely will do that one day.”
The Grammy-winning group offers “eat and greets” at most of their live shows for fan-club members. And Mr. Brown said he takes the food aspect of the show as serious as the music.
“This isn’t just a chance for somebody to come eat a bag of nachos and some Cheez Whiz at a concert,” he said.
