The Rufus on fire! Rufus Wainwright is so talented. Whether he’s singing original songs or covering Judy Garland’s entire Carnegie Hall show, you know you’re going to get quality music from Rufus. The singer who has survived drug addiction and gay bashing has just written an opera called “Prima Donna,” which focuses on a day in the life of an opera star. Rufus Wainwright also created the concept of “Blackoutsabbath,” a program in which people are asked to live “off the grid” as much as possible on selected dates to help the environment. As you can expect, I ran into Rufus as he was on foot and he was super nice. Though I’ve seen him in concert a few times before, I’d never met him before. When someone is as creative as he is, you never know how they’ll be when you meet them. I was very happy that Rufus was very nice during our brief encounter. Thanks again Rufus!
