Is this Patrick Stewart coming out of the closet? Close enough???

Come on, Cpt. Picard… what are you hiding, bro? It must be pretty warm in that closet you’re hiding in, isn’t it?

So Patrick marries Sunny Ozzel in 2013 but he seems to be spending way too much time with Ian McKellen than her.

I question Patrick ’cause I’m a fan of Star Trek TNG and his role in X-Men. Doesn’t mean I’ll turn my back on him if he does happen to be gay, though.


Report: Max Weinberg explains why he won’t be doing Conan’s new show!!!

Max Weinberg finally explains why he won’t be doing Conan’s new show on TBS. It has something to do with his health problems, as he just had a massive 12 hour open heart surgery. He already had the surgery right after the “Tonight Show”, Coco’s final appearance. Weinberg plans to live in New Jersey full time and he also plans to drum for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band more. He’s currently on a tour with Springsteen right now.

See the article, here.


BREAKING NEWS: Max Weinberg…it’s confirmed, he’s done with Coco…

Max Weinberg, E Street Band drummer and longtime sidekick for Conan O’ Brien, Max announced he won’t be going to TBS with Conan. He’s done. No one knows why Max split with Conan. Steven Van Zandt, an E Street Band guitarist, doesn’t even know why either.

Read the full article, here.

Lets hope that all this drama between Conan and NBC didn’t give Max, a headache. Either that, or Max wants to move on to other music opportunities? Maybe he wants to drum for Springsteen full time? Maybe Max has his own side project that he wants to get out there in the music world.

Honestly, I’m kind of glad he’ll be moving on. He’s too talented for TV and he should be drumming for other bands out there. I’m sure Max got big music plans up ahead of him.


Report: Slash shows Jay Leno that he’s on Team Coco…

Last night on Jay Leno, Slash was the special musical guest for his solo career, with Wolfmother singing for him for the song, “By The Sword” which you can get on Slash’s new solo record, out now! TMZ is the first to notice Slash wearing the “I’m With Coco” pin on his shirt.

See it here:


I’m sure all the Coco fans like myself, would know that Slash is very good friends with Conan O’ Brien. Slash has appeared on Conan’s show plenty of times in the past. I’m pretty sure Jay noticed the pin on Slash’s shirt right away, I’m sure Jay didn’t pay much attention to it, lol!

Nice to see Slash on Team Coco. A way to piss Jay off!

I also want to hear Slash’s new solo record. I’ll get it from Itunes when I get extra cash. I really liked his new song, “By The Sword”, it’s a really amazing tune and tight. Wolfmother is a great band, I always dug them!


Justin Bieber vs. Conan O ‘Brien in twitter…

Speaking of Conan O’ Brien, he is having an entertaining feud with teen pop star, Justin Bieber in Twitter. It’s actually funny stuff. Are they enemies or just doing it for a laugh? I vote they are just having fun and fooling around.

Check out Coco’s twitter, he’s all over the kid:



Is this to start up the hype that Justin Bieber could be Conan’s first musical guest when Coco makes his debut on FOX later this year? Could be.

I would admit that Justin Bieber is actually not a bad singer. I actually like that song, “Baby” ft. Ludacris. It’s catchy, and you can actually listen to it. I wouldn’t buy Justin’s album, ever…but I do like that one radio hit, “Baby”. That one song is actually pretty cool. Seriously.


Report: Max Weinberg to leave Conan O’ Brien to fill in for Kevin Eubanks?

Reports have hit the web that there are rumours that Max Weinberg, Conan’s longtime bandleader could be leaving Conan to fill in Kevin Eubanks when he leaves the “Tonight Show”. Sources claim that Max and Conan O’ Brien haven’t been getting along, having a heated feud against each other behind the scenes.

More on it here:


Before people go thinking that Max Weinberg stabbed Conan in the back, don’t always make assumptions. In my opinion, I don’t think Conan and Max have any bad blood against each other at all. They’ve been friends for years and have known each other for years. If you knew how smart and intelligent Conan is, I don’t think he would get angry at Max leaving him for Jay. Conan would feel happy for Max about it. Besides, this doesn’t mean Max will be leaving Conan for good. He may only be taking over for Kevin Eubanks for just a little while until Kevin returns. Then maybe Max will go back to Conan after that. I don’t believe for a second that they are hating on each other all of a sudden. Stupid gossip sites.


Report: Conan O’ Brien show to hit the road?

Could Conan O’ Brien and the Max Weinberg 7 be taking their show on the road for a tour? They’ll be hitting the theatre stage but they’ll be doing their usual comedy shows like they did on TV…having celebrity guests and making jokes of media news. When they go on tour, I see them hitting NYC, Conan’s former hometown to play a show there. I doubt Conan would come to Albany but ya never know.

This is a good idea. This just shows that Conan just loves what he does, performing and entertaining his fans. It also shows that he certainly doesn’t want to sit around and do nothing while waiting for a new TV deal, so even more respects to Coco, indeed. Rock!



Report: Tilda Swinton says she’s definitely game to playing Conan O’ Brien for his biopic film…

On one of Conan’s final shows, he joked that if there was ever a biopic film of his, he said would like to have Tilda Swinton play him. It was meant to be a joke at first…but Tilda Swinton herself heard it and just said at Sundance Festival which she attended in person, that she is definitely game to playing Conan. If there was ever a Conan O’ Brien biopic movie in the works, she would do it in a heartbeat!

More on it here:


I honestly think a Conan O’ Brien biopic film would be a good idea. I agree that Tilda would be perfect. Females has played male characters before. Cate Blanchett played a male character in, “I’m Not There” the Bob Dylan movie.

A movie about Cocco’s life would be cool. It would start from his childhood all the way to now. Lets hope the movie industry have this in the planning stages. Wouldn’t surprise me if studios are talking about it now.


Thought: Conan’s final show was wondefully done!!!

Last night’s Conan O’ Brien final show of “The Tonight Show” was really excellent! Loved it all the way through! Liked it when Steve Carrell made an appearance last night! Tom Hanks was entertaining as usual. Yes, it was Tom Hanks that gave Conan, the “Coco” name as they said on last night’s show. I knew it was Tom that gave him that nickname. What did Tom do that he had up his sleeve? He came out wearing sunglasses and celebrated Conan’s last show with Cream soda!

Neil Young’s set was amazing. I loved the song he played. It must be a new song he wrote that he doesn’t have on any of his records anywhere ’cause I never heard it before. He did his usual acoustic thing. Yes, it was the real Neil Young. Not Jimmy Fallon.

I also liked the “Free Bird” jam with Will Ferrell, Billy Gibbons, Ben Harper, Beck, Conan, and the Max Weinberg 7. That was actually an impressive jam. I don’t like Will Ferrell too much but he did a great job singing, “Free Bird”. You wonder, who is that mystery pregnant woman Will Ferrell was smooching with on stage? I didn’t know who that pregnant woman was, so I looked it up and it was Viveca Paulin, Will’s longtime wife and soul mate he’s been with since 1995. I loved it when Will brought out the cowbell, his signature cowbell segment from the Christopher Walken SNL Blue Oyster Cult, “Don’t Fear the Reaper” cowbell skit.

I was surprised on how good Conan was on the guitar. He was really rockin’. Conan the guitar expert. He definitely knows his shit and he is profesional guitarist. Playing up and down the neck, even soloing some lead parts as well. You ask, why didn’t Conan become a famous musician when he loves guitars so much? I guess Conan loved comedy more and wanting a career in that more than music. He just does music as a hobby. Guess he went to college for comedy and TV broadcasting instead of taking up music profesionally.

I also loved his speech at the end of the show when he thanked his fans for the support, the rally, the internet, and the people watching on TV at home.

Honestly, I won’t miss Conan. He’ll still be on TV in between Sept. 1st. I’m sure Conan will be offered a string of TV interviews from the Today Show, Larry King, Bill O’ Reilly, etc. to talk about this NBC feud everywhere in news. So he’ll always be on TV in different shows now that he’ll have the free time to do all that.

Although, Conan’s gig with the “Tonight Show” didn’t last long, it was still a huge honor for him that he won’t forget.
