Dolly Parton: "Not Lip Syncing At Glastonbury"

The Real thing?

The Real thing?

I like Dolly Parton but I liked her a lot more three years ago and that isn’t simply due to a bad album but also due to the simple fact she doesn’t play live in her concerts> My step nephew in Australia did the sound for Dolly in 2012 and told me she was lip syncing and as for rock nyc itself, well, here is bad boy Steve Crawford just last month:  “From her whispers to her screams, she didn’t hit a wrong note all night. Even when she was moving her handhold microphone or clapping on it, the tone and the volume of the vocals did not change. As I left the show, I heard several people gush in amazement about both the vocals and how many instruments she played. Her “solos” on a miniature saxophone were so obviously faked that it came across more as kitschy than an attempt to fool the audience.”

So when after this weekend’s Glastonbury Festival, the usual complaints about her failure to actually, well, sing, this was her short and sweet reply to the UK tabloid The Sun: “My boobs are fake, my hair’s fake, but what is real is my voice and my heart. Her Rep said: “She sings live. Some people don’t know an amazing singer when they hear one.”

I don’t believe her. I mean it is vaguely possible for one night only she chose not to perform Karoake for the people but even so, I just don’t see how she can have managed it. It’s ridiculous. Nobody goes to see Dollu’s fake boobs, her musical virtuosity, what they come to do is watch her sing. So maybe Dolly should start again and concetrate on that.
