Gossip — Live in Cannes

Posted By on Thu, May 17, 2012 at 11:38 AM

And now, for your Thursday "Holy Crap I Wish I Was There" dance with dejection, here's Arkansas kids-made-good Beth Ditto and Gossip blowing the roof off the dump on opening day of the 65th Cannes Film Festival yesterday, in what might be the most amazing place for a concert ever seen this side of Rock and Roll Heaven. Gossip was filming a piece for the French TV show Le Grand Journal.

BONUS: ... with special guest star Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as his current alter-ego, General Aladeen from his new film "The Dictator".

Terry, born in St. Louis and mentored by Louis Armstrong, played in bands with icons like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Quincy Jones, and was a stated influence on trumpeters like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie (who considered Terry the greatest jazz trumpeter in the world).
