Carly Simon is Dan Rather’s guest tonight on “The Big Interview with Dan Rather.” And apparently waiting for Cat Stevens was the inspiration behind her hit “Anticipation.” In the interview she says she was waiting for him to come over for dinner before a show they were playing at New York’s Carnegie Hall. She says “It was about 7 o’clock when he supposed to arrive and he hadn’t arrived yet. I was so nervous that the chicken wasn’t cooked and the cherries would have melted. I picked up the guitar,” she says. “I had to fill my brain with something… I didn’t know when the door-bell was going to ring. I liked that. It was all of a sudden a quarter to eight and I had written the whole song.”

Funny story honey…I’m still married to some other dude!
Slash is in the middle of a nasty little divorce and says his ex, Perla, shouldn’t get anything. Why? Well that’s the funny little story. He claims when he married Perla in 2001 she was still married to a guy named Carlos (whom she married in 1993) and didn’t get around to filling out all those stupid and boring divorce papers. You know, there’s only so many hours in a day and apparently more fun things to do. Prior to knowing they’d fall out of love Slash and Perla got a lawyer who somehow got the first divorce finalist and…ahem ‘retroactive’ to 1994. Always nice to have a lawyer who knows Doc Brown. Ok so back to 2016, Perla wants half of the millions Slash earned in their 13 year marriage. Slash is hoping some of that lawyer business didn’t stick enough so he has a case and the whole ‘but you were still married’ thing. It’s like game 6 in the world series and you’re down by one…There’s hope.
