DAYS AGO...If you believe in unliklihoods, you're likely to believe the following insider info recently passed along to ColorMeImpressed.com. Next years Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame nominees will include the Replacements. But don't get too excited. Nominee doesn't mean inductee. It's an honor to be nominated. Right?

Michael Bland Bolsters Kiddie Pop

Last week I'm sitting on the sofa reading a Nelson DeMille novel, my youngest child watching Disney channel, and I look up to see who's screechy voice is ruining an otherwise palatable rock/pop background. Not Miley, not enough nasal tone. Okay, it's one of those Jonas brothers. Doubletake! Did I just see what I thought I'd seen? Michael Bland behind the kit, sporting a mohawk, lending some credibility by association to manufactured Disney kiddie rocker Nick Jonas. Jonas producer/bass player John Fields recruited a trio of former Prince's New Power Generation members to help back-up Nick Jonas on his recent cd. Surpisingly, this is not Bland's first foray into the mouse's house. He appeared on the last Jonas brothers cd as well.

Westerberg fans will recall that Bland played drums for past PW solo tours and most recently on the 2004/2005 Folker tour. His other Mats connection, he currently is playing with Tommy Stinson for Minneapolis alums Soul Asylum. Kudos to ERB, the original "Ebony Rhythm Buddha", on scoring a nice paycheck and broadening the kids musical experience. Now if I can figure out how to turn the volume to zero on the vocals, I might actually listen again.
