An interesting email from Leron:
"Here's something noteworthy. I was on AMG (All Music
Guide) and I found that Denise has lent vocals to an album by a Jazz Musician named
Dunn Pearson, Jr. Coincidentally, they are both Pearsons right? LOL!
Anyway, Five Star and Dunn were with the same distributor at one point called PPI (Peter
Pan International). They used to distribute workout tapes by Denise Austin, but they
ventured into music back in about 1995 and took on Tent Records as one of their
labels. Anyway, I can DISTINCTLY hear Denise singing in the first two songs from
this album. The first track is called It's Midnite (Intro) and the second track is It's
Midnite, full verison. Listen to the snippets they have provided on CD-Now".
More exciting News coming up later this week!!! (Wow, so much News to
tell!). Anco ;)
|FIVE STAR ON TV!
Leron emailed me today with
the following exciting News:
"Hall~ey, As you already know, The BBC is
interested in doing a show on Five Star. They've accepted and BBC 2 will be over to spend
10 days with Five Star to shoot an hour long program. It's going to be all new
footage, with perhaps a few old clips. Spoke with Mr. Pearson about this yesterday and
he's quite excited! Thanks to you this has happened!"
|TENT RECORDS OFF THE
Five Star's own recordlabel and website TENT RECORDS is temporarily of the
internet. Ironically we were just about to congratulate the Pearson Family with their 1
year anniversary of the TENT Records-website. Just like exactly one year ago the site is
having an update. This has all to do with the coming release of Five Star brand new single
"I Get Such A High" in the near future.
TV STATIONS VERY INTERESTED IN
Last month I received a couple
of emails from TV-producers who were interested in making a documentary about Five Star. I
will share some emails with you all (names producers are respected):
-"Hello I'm writing from BBC Television. I am doing a programme on
Child Superstars in the next couple of weeks and would be very interested in talking to
any members of Five Star. Would you know who their agent is now and where I might be able
to get in contact with him. Everyone I have contacted doesn't seem to know. Hope you can
help. Thank you for your time".
And another one...:
-"Firstly I must congratulate you on your Five Star site, it's really
impressive. I was hoping to get in touch with the revival band members in connection with
a documentary series I'm making about people who have been through tough times and are
getting themselves back together for TV here in the UK (sorry I'm not sure if you are UK
based or not). Do you know if there are any plans for a UK appearance, when the new single
is released and do you have any tips on how to get in touch with them and Buster (did he
stay in the UK or does he also live in LA?). If things work out I'll certainly keep you
posted with developments. Sincerely, ... Producer RDF Media".
I forwarded these emails ofcourse to Buster. Unfortunately Buster wasn't
interested in RDF Media...
(RDF Media not to confuse with RDMJ Media by the way)
MIKE STOCK'S FIVE STAR
It seems that in the most
recent comeback-specials about Five Star, Mike Stock from hitproducer-trio, Stock, Aitken
& Waterman (SAW), always has his (negative) opinion ready about the Pearsons. On the
other hand he also seems to admire the band..
One week ago (11/10 2001) he claimed in a Dutch TV programme called
"Typisch Tachtig" ("Typical Eighties", and based upon BBC's "I
Love..1985"), that Five Star was one of his "hitfactory" stars
Yeah, as if Mike...dream on!
DENISE 'S OWN WEBPAGE?
Do you think we Fans would be
so lucky? No, probably not, but it's a nice try. I just do not know who's behind this.
It's a description of "her" together with her 2 sisters and
brothers, She and her "friends" decorated the personal pages a bit with a
variation of pics collected from different Five Star websites (what happened again with
At least The Five Star Channel is one of "Deniece's" favourite
websites. Well thank you, your highness! ;)
Curious now?! Ok, check it out on Deniece-Blackplanet-memberspage
