This was not the show to plug his solo CD, it was to plug the new band CD. The solo album came out last year and after singing Amen and Jon talking about the new band album, it would have been disrespectful in a way to say, oh btw I have a new solo CD which came out last year, buy mine instead. Richie's in band mode now.<quoted text>
David got out about Memphis and his new musicals coming to Broadway. Yes he was joking around and missed fantastic opportunity to talk about his own work music or his fashion line, instead he went for goofy. Any artist is always about promoting whatever they are doing. Playing right into the tabloid fodder.
David was asked about Memphis. He didn't volunteer the information himself. After Katie brought up Memphis was when David talked about the upcoming shows next year.
I actually thought Richie was funny and liked him comments about the single and mingle and also about the one with all the bags.
