From Country Thunder, Dallas Williamson had this to say, “Just before 8:30 p.m., Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, are winding down their performance. Surprisingly, Costner’s raspy voice harbors a catchy country twang. And not only can he act, but he looks natural and at home onstage, wearing his black button-down shirt and white-washed blue jeans, strumming a guitar and stamping his foot to the beat. Providing the rhythms and backup vocals to Costner, seven other band members help perform such original hits as “Turn It On.” While this is one of the band’s few stops in the U.S. after an extensive tour throughout Europe, it is interesting to find that several of the band members of Modern West hail from Tucson” at the following link:

From Country Thunder, Florence, AZ…..

In the article, Cathalena E. Burch says, “Yang proved to be one of the most enteraining musicians of the day” and “That's a tall order given that he was sharing the stage with Hollywood hunk Costner, who despite his years is still a sight for sore eyes.” At the following link:
http://azstarnet.com/entertainment/blogs/caliente-tuned-in/article_a219f9b6-49eb-11df-9928-001cc4c03286.html

See two pictures of Kevin and one of Bobby at the following link:
http://azstarnet.com/entertainment/music/article_2616bce5-4501-5691-8d03-35f7e10193ec.html
Excerpt: ”Costner, who quietly took the stage with no introduction, took on the role of country music newcomer with the disadvantage of having little known material to support him. But he delivered the goods in an hourlong set and showed off some real talent: rough-hewn vocals that nearly growled on his post-Hurricane Katrina rocker "Five Minutes to America"; a lusty growl on the sultry "Long Hot Night"; and a gently worn baritone on the pop-country ballad "Let Me Be the One," which he sang with his daughter, Lily.”

jonslewis tweeted: i had lunch with kevin costner... yes, that kevin costner. nice guy.

KC & MW at Country Thunder, Florence, AZ…..

Kevin Costner sighting by Cathalena E. Burch says, “Kevin Costner is making his Country Thunder debut in about an hour. Meanwhile, he's getting his country music baptism by fire — the dreaded and treasured meet-and-greet. Backstage, the Hollywood hunk had a cellphone glued to his ear as he strolled around waiting for the band to arrive. John Coinman, a Tucson institution and songwriting genius behind most of Costner's songs, showed up with the rest of the band a few minutes later.” "They're releasing their second CD in Europe and Canada; the U.S. release will have to wait until they can hit the road to support it," John said, at the following link:

‘Dances With Wolves’ the musical…..

According to Playbill.com, at the following link:
http://www.playbill.com/news/article/138756-EXCLUSIVE-Dances-With-Wolves-the-Musical-Is-On-the-Horizon
Matt Murphy, a producer on Broadway's Memphis, Impressionism and Thurgood, told Playbill.com that he has acquired the stage rights to Michael Blake's 1986 book, which is better known as an Academy Award-winning 1990 film that starred Kevin Costner (it won Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, among other Oscars). Murphy is putting together a writing team to adapt the novel into a musical for the Broadway stage. He expects the score to have music inspired by folk, Appalachian, Civil War and Native American music. "It's a beautiful story set within a spectacular setting so that you get lush visuals along with a gorgeous romance along with something of cultural significance," Murphy told Playbill.com. "I have never seen Native Americans on stage, I've never seen this story on stage." Murphy said he was attracted to the story's "collision of two different cultures" and its exploration of "how different and how similar people are." He called Dances With Wolves, the musical, "an epic dramatic musical." A large cast and expansive design elements are envisioned. "There is no way to do Dances With Wolves, which is essentially a Western on stage, without it being spectacular and epic in scope," Murphy said. No production timeline has been announced. The project is in its seedling stage, with Murphy gathering creative and producing partners. "Musicals take a lot of time to develop," he observed. Murphy said that he's seeking an experienced musical-theatre writing team for the libretto and music and lyrics. Novelist and Oscar-winning screenwriter Blake is not expected to pen the libretto…..For more information, visit www.mattmurphyproductions.com.

John Connolly on ‘The New Daughter’…..

John Connolly writes on his blog that he’d finally been given a copy of ‘The New Daughter” to view. About Kevin, he said, “But the acting is top-rate, particularly from Kevin Costner. He's been a star for so long that it's easy to take what he does for granted, but again and again in THE NEW DAUGHTER he made a small gesture, or changed his expression slightly, and the subtlety of it, and the effect he achieved with it, brought a smile to my face.” About the film itself, he said, “It's a nicely-made little chiller, and the screenwriter, John Travis, did a good job of taking a very short story and expanding it into a film, even sneaking little bits in from some of my other books.” See what all he had to say at the following link:

From Aspen Peak magazine interview in November 2004: They asked, “What about music? We hear you sing.” Kevin answered: “No. The beauty of singing is that you can do it anywhere. And the real challenge—or gift—is to know when and where to not sing. Professionally, however, I would love to do a musical on Broadway someday.”

Edels earMUSIC released Kevin Costner and Modern West’s album "Turn It On" – it made it into the Top 20 in the European charts and in Germany it has been in the album charts for more than four weeks. Of the European tour, Edel CEO Michael Haentjes said, "Kevin Costner simply bowled over his audiences because, apart from his voice, on the stage he is able to present this incredible personal charisma that has already made him a legend in the history of film." Further dates are planned in the course of the year in Italy and England, accompanied by the local release of the "Turn It On" album.

http://www.sueddeutsche.de/kultur/830/405608/text/
Kevin also said, “I have no nostalgic look at the past, no unrealistic view of the world. But I know how hard it is to make a good film. Nobody wanted "The Dances with Wolves" or "Bull Durham". Although it is not a blockbuster, there is someone who likes this film, which shows him in twenty years, his children. That makes it successful for me.” And also: “It is for me an opportunity to share something that really touched me. If we were friends, would you tell me about it when you read a really great book. So it goes with me when I read a great script, I immediately felt that I would share it with other people.”

The following are quotes from Kevin in articles that are no longer available online.
January 2005: In an interview at Sundance for The Upside of Anger - About his future, Costner would only say, "I've got a plan," which he followed with a sly grin. "When I think of the next five years, I think of individual choices.... I'm looking to stay independent," he said. He said he has always strayed from replaying the same, old characters in movies, and points out that he turned down offers of big paydays to make sequels to films like "The Bodyguard."

From a Moviehole.net interview dated February 2005 – “I also know that outside my own family I need to conquer some things. I am a boy and I need to make my mark. I do that in movies and other ventures, so I try to live a very full life. I know most of it doesn't mean anything other than who is going to hold your hand during your last breaths." And “I like the experience in the dark, that we continue to go to. I mean, the world still is evolving and changing so rapidly, we know what that's like, but still every one of us still find ourselves in a theatre….there's many people who still go to the theatre, to sit in the dark, and watch a movie and they're still looking for something to change them, some fresh air, to feel some light. So, people that go to the movies feel strongly, and I feel strongly when I make them."

Another blast from the past, Primetime interview…..

A few quotes from the Primetime interview Kevin had with Diane Sawyer. Diane asked Kevin: "How many times have you had your heart broken?"
Kevin: "Sometimes it breaks for other people, not just for yourself, in your life, you know. There's people and alliances that you have and your heart can get broke, you know. I mean, I think Jim Morrison had it right. He says, "No one here gets out alive", you know and we're bruised, you know, we're all maybe a little bit broken but it's kind of how you resurrect yourself. It's kind of how you want to walk through this life.

Diane Sawyer said to Kevin, "One of your friends said that Kevin is the ride back guy, the ride back to getcha guy in the movies. When it's going wrong for you, he'll turn his horse around and come back and find you.
Kevin: "I believe in that kind of friendship and I believe that friendship is tested and there's some things that you can't do for a friend but sometimes even in the midst of maybe being angry with somebody, if somebody is in trouble, I will go get them."

Kevin also said: "I don't suffer fools. I'm firm. I can't be budged around a lot, you know, about something I know to be true."

"I'm a little anal. A little bit. When I get my idea about something I don't let go of it."

And also, "...but the truth is for me, that things are bigger than me, you know, and I want success, my ego wants that but I know if I give in to that I'm really a lost person because there's so much more out there for me."
