Broadways Spiderman Chosen, Reeves Carney: Now Peter Parker I Can See but Spidey???

As a wee tween with the brain size around a hundredth of Mary Magpie’s at the same age,  I loved comic books and loved Spiderman more than all the others. Kinda like how I feel about Conor Oberst today. And so far I’ve been pretty Ok with the Toby MagUire and the movies.

But Bono and the Edge and Julie Taymor and Spidey and Broadway… err, talk about overkill. The only thing that’s excited me so far is the gifted young actress Evan Hunter Wood portraying MJ in the dreadfully Titled: Spider-man Turn Back the Clock.

Now comes word wimp rock Reeves Carney will portray Peter Parker and, I’m assuming here, his alter ego. So I went on line and gave him a listen and wow is this guy a drag. Here’s some song titles and they all live up to their names” “Think Of You”, “There She Goes”, “Easier Said Than Done”. This is really awful. If Nessing ever heard this guy he’d forgive Joe First (they sound similar by the way).

Here is some a question and answers on a website called

1. Which was the first record you bought with your own money?

Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits.

2. Which was the last record you bought with your own money?
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins — Cow Fingers and Mosquito Pie.

3. What was the first solo you learned from a record — and can you still play it?
I think it must have been the solo from Radiohead’s “High and Dry,” off The Bends. Yes, I can still play it — all five notes!

4. Which recording of your own (or as a sideman) are you most proud of, and why?
I have a song called “Mr. Green” and I love the way it turned out on record. I am most proud of it because we — my band and I — tracked the entire thing live, including the vocals, and I actually ended up liking it! There’s such a chemistry between the band members, which comes across on the recording. We caught a moment.
