  1. A Performer's Influence

    Sunday, July 7, 2013

    As a performer, I'm always wondering another performer's influence.  For me, it's always been a showman (show woman) or front man for a band.  My major influences are 1.  Freddy Mercury, 2.  Carol Burnett, 3.  KISS, 4.  Saturday Night Live 1977.  I watched "How Bruce Lee Changed the World" this afternoon, and realized how many performers actually have given a nod to Bruce Lee and his influence over their career.  I love, love, love Bruce Lee and wished that I had as much talent in my entire body as he had in his 1 inch punch.  Bruce, as well as everyone listed above, made you escape into whatever land that they created for as long as they were on the screen or stage.  Then, the next day, you keep thinking about their performance.

    to be continued...I'm exhausted...

      Every day we are surrounded by opportunities to learn. Sometimes we actually see them.

      I was also influenced by many of the same on your list...can't hear God Gave Rock N Roll to You enough! I used to make my friends put on Carol Burnett skits all the time. They stopped being my friends but I do a fabulous Mr. Tudball. I also just watched Bruce Lee beat the snot out of Chuck Norris. xoxo, Samantha
