Wicked Lame : MLB Unveils All-Star Entertainment

Q: When is an Adam Duritz sighting unfunny?

A: When he’s SINGING.

From the Biz Of Baseball (link swiped from Repoz and Baseball Think Factory)

Two-time Grammy award nominee Chris Isaak will perform the U.S. National Anthem prior to the start of the 2007 All-Star Game. Grammy winner Paula Cole will perform God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch at the 2007 All-Star Game. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay area, Counting Crows will perform a two-song set prior to the start of the Home Run Derby, on July 9th at AT&T Park.

I suspect no one at MLB was able to find Johnny Strike’s phone number.

    What about those adopted sons of the Bay Area, Metallica? They could even throw in a small portion of the unsold copies of “St. Anger” as a giveaway to All-Star fans.

    D mcG,

    Yep. Didn’t claim otherwise though. On the bright side, no one invited boZ scaggs.

    I think metallica are holding out for a raiders super bowl. Either that or the reincarnation of eugene landy,

    I don’t care if Paula Cole and Chris Isaak were both BORN in AT&T Park/the Cove/etc. Both of their performances last night were absolutely awful.

    Who is the music supervisor or producer for MLB’s entertainment? If choosing San Fran natives for these spots was so important, why zero mention of “….and here’s San Fran’s own, Paula Cole! or Chris Isaak!”? And the miscued fly-by and the 60 second pause to get Paula Cole’s keyboard player live? Seriously, awful.
