Bruce Springsteen Reveals His Favorite Songs to “The Late Show’s” Stephen Colbert

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS Stephen Colbert welcomed Bruce Springsteen to The Late Show on Friday to plug his autobiography, Born to Run, and its companion album, Chapter and Verse. The legendary rocker also revealed his top five Springsteen songs.

The first two were easy for Bruce. “I got to put ‘Born to Run’ up there. I guess for me, ‘The Rising’ is a big song,” he answered right away, then struggled to complete the list. “What do we play every night? We play ‘Thunder Road’ really regularly. ‘Nebraska’ was a good one.”

He polled the audience for the fifth song, which seemed to be a tie between “Jungleland” and “Racing in the Streets.” 

Colbert also read a question from “an anonymous band member” about Springsteen’s tendency to call out songs his backup band has never played before.

“The entire band is bar band veterans, so they played hundreds of nights before we ever stood out in front of an audience…so there’s a common well we draw from,” he explained. “If someone says, ‘Play “Wild Thing,”‘ you’ll be fired from the E Street Band if you don’t know [that song].”

Springsteen added there’s a “little man under the stage” who runs his teleprompter and sends him the lyrics within seconds.

The 67-year-old rocker also discussed his marathon shows, which have been known to last over three hours, and, in the case of his recent concert in Philadelphia, topping the four-hour mark. His band seems to be okay with that, for the most part.

“The band doesn’t complain until around three hours and 40 minutes,” Springsteen said. “It’s that last 20 minutes that for some reason even makes the E Street Band [angry]… slightly, someone may mention it to me.”

Buckwheat Zydeco’s Stanley Dural, Jr. Dead at 68

Photo by Douglas Mason/Getty ImagesStanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr., better known by his stage name, Buckwheat Zydeco, died early Saturday in Lafayette, Louisiana, according to The Times-Picayune. He was 68 years old.

He’d been suffering from lung cancer.

The Lafayette native discovered zydeco music — a blend of Cajun, Creole and blues — from his father’s accordion playing and the scratching sounds his uncle could pull out of the family’s washboard, which they used to clean laundry, the Times-Picayune notes.

Dural — who reportedly was nicknamed “Buckwheat” after the Little Rascals character — played in a number of bands before going solo and eventually becoming the first zydeco artist to sign with a major label.

Dural also performed and recorded with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and U2, among others, and appeared on TV and in movies, including 1987’s The Big Easy.

He won an Emmy for his music in Pistol Pete: The Life and Times of Pete Maravich.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Travolta Nearly Literally Walked in the Shoes of Mob Boss John Gotti for Film

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — John Travolta, who TV viewers last saw as Robert Shapiro in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, is now stepping into the shoes of another iconic real-life character, this time a notorious mob boss, in the new film The Life and Death of John Gotti.

To portray the flashy figure, Travolta nearly literally walked in the man’s shoes. “I got to wear his real jewelry. In several of the scenes I’m wearing his real ties,” the actor told ABC News’ Mara Schiavocampo.

Travolta, 62,  called getting into Gotti’s skin “an evolution. ” 

In a case of art imitating life, Gotti’s wife, Victoria Gotti, is played in the movie by Travolta’s real-life wife, Kelly Preston.

Preston described the movie as full of “fabulous fashion” and “big hair.” She said she believes the infamous couple made it through John Gotti’s crime-filled life by compartmentalizing.

“She knew what was going on,” Preston said of her character. “But she said, ‘When he would come in, the door would close and that life would end.’”

The Gottis’ own son, John Gotti Jr., was a frequent visitor to the set and key adviser for the movie, which is directed by Entourage star Kevin Connolly.

“There’s always two sides to a story,” Travolta said of why he was drawn to portraying Gotti on the big screen.
“They had a very human other side of existence, which is their family and their trials and tribulations.”

Travolta and Preston have faced their own tribulations in real-life, most notably the unexpected death of their teenage son, Jett, in 2009. The couple now have a 5-year-old son, Ben, and 16-year-old daughter, Ella.
“We certainly have bonded together,” Travolta said. “And certainly, having little Ben has been a beautiful kind of glue for us to re-bond after tremendous loss.”

Ben and Ella joined their parents in Cincinnati for the filming of the movie which saw parts of the Midwestern town transformed into 1980s New York.

When asked if there was any part of the 1980s that he would like to bring back, Travolta had a quick answer.
“I danced with Princess Diana in 1986 and that was one of the highlights of my life,” he said, referring to their dance at the White House that resulted in an iconic photograph.

The Life and Death of John Gotti is scheduled to hit theaters in 2017.

Lupita Nyong’o Knew Right Away She “Had to Be a Part” of “Queen of Katwe”

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Lupita Nyong’o stars in the new film, Queen of Katwe — based on a true story about a chess prodigy overcoming all odds.

The Oscar-winning actress plays the girl’s fiercely protective mother and said today on Good Morning America that when she first read the script, she broke down just a few pages in.

“On the pages. I found interesting, real complex, layered, inspiring characters,” Nyong’o said. “I could tell that in less than 10 pages. I just knew I had to be a part of this film.”

Nyong’o added, “It was such a rewarding labor of love … to get to tell this true, inspiring story in Uganda, in East Africa where I’m from, and to do it with [director] Mira Nair, a woman of color who has lived there for over 20 years, who knows the place and really told the story from inside out.”

“I’m very, very proud of this film,” Nyong’o said.

This year, Nyong’o received a Tony nomination for best leading actress in a play for her role in Eclipsed.
“That was a fully, immersive experience, being on Broadway for so long and having to do the same thing every day” she said. “I mean, it was so inspiring and I worked with such a great group of women, and to have taken that African story to a completely other side of the continent and brought it to New York, that was really amazing.”

Queen of Katwe opens nationwide Friday.

Josh Brolin Weds Model Kathryn Boyd

John Rasimus/Barcroft Media/Barcroft Media via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Josh Brolin is now a married man.

A rep for the actor confirmed to ABC News that he wed model Kathryn Boyd on Saturday.

The blushing bride took to Instagram to share a couple of black-and-white photos from the ceremony, held in North Carolina.

Boyd said in one caption, “Greatest day of my life. Easy. Hands down. Happy. Loving. Special. Complete. …@joshbrolin I love you.”

Another caption simply read: “Husband.”

Previously, Brolin, 48, revealed that he was a bit of a groom-zilla when it came to planning the wedding.

“I’m such a control freak and I want to control everything,” he told E! News. “It’s not even that I want to control it; I just want to be in the middle of it. I want to be in the nucleus of it because that’s the fun part. That’s the nectar.”

The Oscar-nominated actor’s rep confirmed in May that Brolin and Boyd were engaged.

This is the third marriage for Brolin, who was previously married to actress Diane Lane. He has two adult children — Trevor, 28, and daughter Eden, 22 — from his first marriage, to Alice Adair.

Violent Crime in US Up as City Homicides Spur 11 Percent Hike in Overall Murders

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Cities across the country suffered an uptick in violent crime last year, including a nearly 11 percent jump in murders from the year before, according to new statistics compiled by the FBI.

There were 1,197,704 violent crimes committed around the nation last year — a 3.9 percent increase from 2014, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report. However, last year’s statistics were still slightly lower than in 2011, and more than 16 percent below the 2006 level, the FBI said Monday.

It’s important to note that big jumps in violent crime in only a handful of U.S. cities can drive the national average up. Some cities, like Chicago and Los Angeles, saw more than 24,000 violent crimes each last year, while so many other cities and towns across the country experienced single-digit or no violent crimes at all.

Overall, murders accounted for nearly 15,700 of last year’s violent crimes, and nearly three-quarters of them were committed with firearms, according to the FBI report.

“The report shows that there was an overall increase in violent crime last year, making clear what each of us already knows: that we still have so much work to do,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said at a violent-reduction summit in Little Rock, Arkansas. “But the report also reminds us of the progress that we are making. It shows that in many communities, crime has remained stable or even decreased from the historic lows reported in 2014. And it is important to remember that while crime did increase overall last year, 2015 still represented the third-lowest year for violent crime in the past two decades.”

Lynch said the nation must not become “complacent” about violent crime.

“The residents of communities where violence remains a fact of daily life care little whether overall crime rates are up and down,” she said. “And in the raft of data and analysis that can so often define our work, we must never forget that all of our numbers reflect the lives of real people.”

She emphasized that “there is no single cause of violence, and solutions will vary from one community to another.”

Son Found After Eight Days Lost at Sea, Mother’s Fate a Mystery

iStock/Thinkstock(POINT JUDITH, R.I.) — The U.S. Coast Guard has launched an investigation into the mystery a 54-year-old Connecticut mother’s whereabouts after she and her son disappeared during a fishing trip last week.

Though the 22-year-old Nathan Carman was found alive after six days of searching, Linda Carman’s location remains unknown, according to the Coast Guard.

The two from Middletown, Connecticut were first reported missing last Sunday, Sept. 18, after failing to return from a fishing trip they had begun the previous night.

They had embarked from Point Judith, Rhode Island in a 32-foot aluminum center console boat, Coast Guard Petty Officer Nicole Groll told ABC News.

The Coast Guard performed exhaustive search for Nathan and Linda over the six days, covering an area larger than the state of Georgia, Groll said. The search was suspended on Friday, Sept. 23.

But just two days later, a freighter found Nathan Carman in a life raft with food and water, Groll said. Nathan Carman’s mother, however, was not in the life raft and was nowhere to be found.

The mother and son’s boat has not been located.

The investigation into Linda Carman’s whereabouts and what exactly happened to their boat continues, Groll said.

Outpouring of Emotion After Ohio High School Football Player Succumbs to Injury

Photodisc/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) — A 17-year-old Ohio high school football player died on Sunday after being injured in a game on Friday, reports WEWS-TV, a local ABC affiliate.

Andre Jackson, a junior fullback and outside linebacker from Euclid High School, near Cleveland, was injured during a special teams play in Friday night’s game, his coach said.

“It was a pooch kick,” Euclid coach Jeff Rotsky told WEWS. “He was going for the ball, and their guys were going for the ball, and I think he got kicked or kneed.”

Rotsky said the incident happened during a “completely normal” special teams play.

The school district said Jackson walked off the field after the play, went to the hospital and was later released.

The cause of death is still unknown.

Heartfelt condolences came quickly after news of the teen’s death on Sunday.

Rotsky said it was Jackson’s bright smile and constant kindness that friends and teammates talked most about.

“He is irreplaceable,” said Rotsky. “There will never be a smile like Andre Jackson’s. No matter how much you asked him to do, he would do it for you. That’s the type of young man we unfortunately lost today.”

Euclid High School issued an official statement:

“Today, Euclid High School junior Andre L. Jackson passed away following an injury sustained during Friday night’s football game. Andre was a hardworking student-athlete that brought smiles to all those with whom he came in contact. The Euclid City School District would like to extend its deepest sympathy to the Jackson family during this horrific time.”

Solon City school district, Euclid’s opponent on Friday, issued this statement to parents and students about Jackson’s death:

“The Solon Schools are mourning the loss tonight of Euclid High School student Andre L. Jackson, who passed away earlier today. A junior and member of the Panthers football team, Andre was 17. He sustained an injury in Friday night’s game against the Comets. The cause of his death is yet unknown. Everyone in the Solon Comets athletic program and the Solon Schools sends prayers and thoughts of comfort to Andre’s family, friends, teammates, coaches as well as the Euclid High School and Euclid communities. Counselors will be available this week for our Solon students who want to talk or need additional support.”

Teammates, classmates, friends and rivals took to Twitter to express their grief using the hashtag #RIPandre:

Prayers for the Euclid football team, community, and family for their loss of #48 Andre Jackson. #RIPandre

Euclid High School was scheduled to host its homecoming game Friday night, WEWS reports, but officials said they are unsure whether the game will still be played.

60,000 Residents of Besieged Syrian Towns Get Aid for First Time Since April

iStock/Thinkstock(LONDON) — Long-awaited aid has reached Madaya and three other besieged Syrian towns for the first time since April.

Humanitarian assistance was supposed to arrive in Madaya, Foah, Zabadani and Kefraya last Tuesday, but that delivery was put on temporary hold following an attack on an aid convoy in western Aleppo that left at least 21 people dead.

On Sunday, trucks with wheat flour and food enough for the four towns’ 60,000 residents, most of whom are women and children, finally arrived. The aid also included medical and hygiene supplies.

“Sunday, we had a convoy deliver aid to Madaya, Foah, Zabadani and Kefraya,” David Swanson, a spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told ABC News.

“We are very happy,” Hala Yousef, 40, a teacher in Madaya told ABC News after aid arrived Sunday. “The aid trucks are parked near my house. It’s very busy and there’s a sound of cars and children. There’s widespread joy. It’s like a holiday.”

Yousef last week expressed fear following news that aid to Madaya’s estimated 40,000 residents was suspended.

“We are on the verge of famine. Many people don’t have any food supplies left,” she said last week. “My body is very weak. I always have a headache and fever. In the morning, I feel like I don’t want to get up, like I didn’t get enough sleep and my body is tired. I have no energy.”

Madaya is facing a meningitis epidemic, according to Save the Children. Yousef is one of many residents who suffer from the disease. People live without basic food such as flour, vegetables, fruit and meat. Their main diet is bulgur and rice, which Yousef says they mix in order to bake bread.

Many in Madaya are out of work. Others, including Yousef’s husband, don’t get paid, she said. At the same time, prices of food are extremely high — Yousef says that the normal price for two pounds of cucumbers or tomatoes is more than $20, while canned tuna costs almost $30. Yousef makes $200 a month, but sends all the money to her sister in Lebanon who takes care of her three children who were able to leave Madaya over a year ago. Yousef and her husband couldn’t leave because they are wanted by the Syrian government for doing aid work, she said.

“There is almost never meat and almost never any kind of fresh fruit or vegetables. We have heard of children who were 4 or 5 years old who saw pictures of an apple and didn’t know what it was because they had never seen one in their memory,” Misty Buswell, Save the Children’s regional advocacy director for the Middle East, told ABC News.

An estimated 13.5 million people, including 6 million children, are in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria, according to the United Nations. Of these, 5.47 million people are in hard-to-reach areas, including the close to 600,000 people in 18 besieged areas.

Aleppo Sees ‘Unprecedented’ Day of Airstrikes as UN Condemns Violence

iStock/Thinkstock(LONDON) — East Aleppo saw what witnesses describe as an unprecedented and relentless offensive as United Nations diplomats demanded a halt to the violence Sunday.

On Monday morning airstrikes continued to hit the rebel-held part of Aleppo, say locals.

“Six have died at the hospital so far since airstrikes started to hit this morning,” Abu Rajab, a nurse at an Aleppo hospital, told ABC News.

Sunday’s airstrikes were heavier than anything he had seen or heard since the Syrian war started over five years ago, he said.

“It felt like the ground was shaking under you, like an earthquake,” he said of the strikes. “The explosions sounded loud and strange like nothing we’ve heard before in five years of war. It was a bloody day. No words can describe what happened yesterday.”

He said the hospital received around 180 injured people from Sunday’s attacks, but had to refer some of them to other clinics because they didn’t have the capacity to treat all of them. Around 40 percent of the wounded were children and 20 percent women, he said. The intensive care unit was so filled up with patients that one surgeon had to conduct an operation on the ground.

Since midnight Saturday, at least 27 people were killed by strikes from warplanes and government helicopters, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Sunday.

At least 70 people have been killed in three days of airstrikes on east Aleppo from Friday to Sunday night, activists in Syria told ABC News.

The United Nations said the recent attacks on Aleppo could amount to war crimes.

“Repeated airstrikes and the use of bunker-busting and incendiary bombs in densely populated areas could well prove to be war crimes,” David Swanson, a spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told ABC News.

The U.N. has 40 trucks with aid ready to enter eastern Aleppo. The aid has been sitting by the Turkish border for about two weeks and is still waiting by the border in Syria customs area. Once the U.N. gets the green light, the first convoy carrying a month’s worth of wheat flour for more than 150,000 people will be sent to Aleppo, according to the U.N.’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The shipment will be followed up by a delivery of enough food rations to feed 35,000 people for a month.

The distance from the Turkish border to east Aleppo is only some 40 miles, but the journey could take about four to five hours.

While up to 275,000 people in eastern Aleppo are still waiting for the aid they need, humanitarian assistance entered the four besieged Syrian towns of Madaya, Foah, Zabadani and Kefraya Sunday.

On Wednesday evening, one out of two water pumping stations in east Aleppo, was destroyed by airstrikes. In retaliation, rebels turned off the second water pumping station that mainly serves the government-held western part of the city. That means that close to 2 million people in Aleppo are currently living without running water.

At an emergency meeting Sunday, Western U.N. diplomats condemned the recent escalating violence in Aleppo and blamed Russia and the Syrian government. Samantha Powers, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., accused Russia of committing barbarism under the guise of “counter-terrorism.”

“Instead of pursuing peace Russia and Assad make war. Instead of helping get life-saving aid to civilians, Russia and Assad are bombing humanitarian convoys, hospitals and first responders who are trying desperately to keep people alive,” Powers told members of the Security Council Sunday.

“It seems the only items that make it into eastern Aleppo these days are barrel bombs and incendiaries that witnesses report seen dropped by Assad’s forces and Russian forces. Russia of course has long had the power to stop this suffering. Even now, we will continue to look for any way possible to restore the cessation of hostilities.”

Powers walked out of the emergency session along with the French and U.K. ambassadors to the U.N. in protest when Syria’s ambassador was called to speak.

The U.S., the U.K. and France had requested the emergency meeting after the Syrian military on Thursday announced a new offensive on east Aleppo.
