Bob Dylan expected to miss daughter's wedding

Sep 30 2013, 6:06am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Bob Dylan is expected to snub his daughter's wedding, despite being invited to the nuptials.

The 72-year-old musician's 27-year-old daughter Desiree Dennis-Dylan - his sixth child, and only offspring with second wife Carolyn Dennis, his long-time back-up singer - is tying the knot with her girlfriend Kayla Sampson next August in Mira Loma, California.

Desiree - who met Kayla while performing in the Young Americans, a travelling non-profit performing arts club for youths - has invited her famous father to the nuptials but is expecting to be disappointed.

Jolene Sampson - Kayla's mother - told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Of course he's invited, but he's just not going to go. He didn't say that, but that's what we are assuming. It would be sad, but he is really supportive and happy for her."

Bob and Carolyn married in June 1986 - six months after Desiree was born - but divorced in October 1992. The marriage and their daughter's existence were a secret and were only revealed when Howard Sounes' Dylan biography, 'Down the Highway: The Life Of Bob Dylan', was released in 2001.

At the time, Carolyn insisted they kept their daughter a secret so she could have a "normal childhood". She had her mother's surname as a child but eventually took her famous father's surname when she was old enough to decide for herself.

Desiree has refused to be drawn on her dad Bob's potential wedding no-show.

Speaking through a publicist about the ceremony, Desiree said: "No decisions have been made about a wedding. We want to keep matters affecting our families private."

When quizzed on whether or not her dad will have a role in her big day, she said: "We don't know yet. We will have to see."

Jack White: ‘I don’t see beauty in texting & not talking face to face’

Sep 18 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

The world wouldn’t be the same without the occasional bitchy interview from Jack White. Did you see his recent sad baseball face at a Chicago Cubs game? That made my day. “Grumpy Jack” doesn’t dislike baseball. He simply had a bad day. I follow a blogger on Twitter who snapped a photo of Jack smiling at a Bay area game a few weeks later. There was talk of him getting hit with a ball in Chicago. I don’t know. Back to Jack Wh ...

Next Wave #599: Sway Clarke II

Sep 15 2014 2:59am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Hip-hop meets Britpop…Sometimes in life, you have to hold up your hands and accept defeat. As Sway Clarke II (‘the second’) did, after a brief flirtation with rap. “I thought I was a rapper. I was a rapper. I just wasn’t good.” His laugh spills into a gap-toothed grin, as he sits within the lime green-licked offices of Island Records – his new home. “I just realised there was a big difference between me and Kanye. So I started singing.” Growing up in social housing in ...

Married with Children cast reunites as Katey Sagal gets a star on the Walk of Fame

Sep 10 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Katey Sagal of Sons of Anarchy got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. On hand to help her accept the award were her former Married… With Children co-stars, Christina Applegate, Ed O’Neill and David Faustino. I don’t have a lot of nostalgia for that show because it was so dirty I wasn’t supposed to watch it. I still did, of course, especially as I got older. Wiki says that it aired from 1987 to 1997, which was a whopp ...

Gene Simmons: 'Rock Is Finally Dead'

Sep 6 2014 2:56pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

I spoke with my father about his legacy, the legacy of his contemporaries, and the state of the music industry today. Invariably, it seemed, we began to talk about file-sharing.But this is not that old story of an out-of-touch one-percenter crying victim. As so many pointed out during the now-infamous Napster public relations war, the rich/famous/established musicians are not the victims of the digital revolution. My father instead laments the loss of opportunity for my ...

The Other Rock History

The new book The History of Rock N Roll in Ten Songs is missing everything you would expect. No Rolling Stones or Beatles. No Jimi Hendrix performances or remembrances of Woodstock. In place of the iconic, musicologist Greil Marcus analyzes 10 songs that he says tell the wild story of one of America's greatest gifts to the world.

Elvis Costello, Ben Folds – Hollywood Bowl Preview: September 5 & 6, 2014

Aug 20 2014 2:40pm CDT | Source: Entertainment Today

One of the more eclectic figures on the music scene for the last nearly four decades is the former computer programmer named Declan Patrick MacManus. Unless you dutifully recognize that name from studying songwriting credits, you know him as Elvis Costello. He poked his head out of the original mid 70s British punk scene, chained himself to a post outside of the London record company that eventually signed him and started down the road of exploring e ...
