Dennis Rodman Bombs Harder Than Ann Coulter at Bruce Willis Roast

HOLLYWOOD, California — What on Earth was Dennis Rodman thinking?

On Saturday night at the Hollywood Palladium, the man who helped bring Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un together became the latest in a long line of punching bags at The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis. Willis may have been in the hot seat, but Rodman—a last-minute addition to the dais—took a lot of the heat.

Like Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Ann Coulter before him, Rodman was the latest non-comedian to experience what it’s like to not only bomb on a big stage but then get utterly destroyed by pros like Roastmaster General Jeff Ross, seasoned stand-ups Nikki Glaser and Lil Rel Howery and wildcards like perennial favorite Martha Stewart.

Why We Like Rich Heroes Like Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen

Barry Allen: What are your superpowers again?

Bruce Wayne: I’m rich.

These two words, taken from last year’s Justice League movie delighted fans and reminded us of everything we love about wealthy heroes like Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen. They’re mysterious, powerful and, more importantly, they’re brutally real. The superhero element of these characters may be fantasy, but often they’re underlined with a morality that injects some much-needed realism into a fictional world.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous


The Batcave
According to Forbes, Wayne Enterprises’ annual net income is valued at approximately $ 31 billion. The cost of maintaining Batman is approximately $ 682 million.

One of the main appeals of rich superheroes is that they’re rich. And, logically, this billionaire status affords their alter egos a lot of enviable super luxuries. Most people born into multi-billion dollar fortunes lead regular lives. They live in opulent mansions, own expensive foreign cars, and build multi-billion dollar franchises. You know, regular people stuff.

But wealthy superheroes like Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen take the dream one step further. They build Arrowcaves and drive Batmobiles. They hire efficient British butlers to run their households and superhero operations. And can we talk about the gadgets?

Wealthy superheroism, as showcased by Wayne and Queen, explores affluence in its extreme. With a moral compass and a billion dollars, rich superheroes live out the kind of conversations you might have with your friends. Their resources read like a thought experiment into what you could do with unlimited funds. The answer? Buy a lot of cool things. Naturally.

Born This Way


Batman and Martha Wayne: Flashpoint Timeline
‘I’m not the hero of this story. I’m a man who’s been corrupted by his own unbearable pain. I’m a man who has too much blood on his hands to be called good.’ – Batman (Thomas Wayne)

When it comes to the crunch, we may like rich superheroes because their gadgets are cool, but we revere them because we can relate to their struggles. Sure, none of us has ever scaled a 60ft building to stop an intelligent gorilla from taking over New York, but the problems of heroes like Wayne and Queen are more complex than the villains they face. Our protagonists are ultimately mortal beings, with weaknesses rooted in realism. Their origin stories are human: shrouded in loss, retribution, and self-realisation.

These characteristics are evident in both Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen, but they also hold true for rich superheroes as a whole. And you don’t have to look too far to find them. In one of the most literal iterations of The Dark Night: The Flashpoint Batman, millionaire Thomas Wayne is the one who takes up the mantle of Batman after his son Bruce is killed in a robbery-gone-wrong. His wife, Martha, goes mad after the loss of her son and later becomes Batman’s archenemy – The Joker. Although this origin story is by no means the darkest in the DC universe, in a twisted way, it’s perhaps the most realistic.

Strip away the gadgets and the vigilantism and Thomas Wayne’s Batman is essentially a father, grieving over the loss of his son. He feels an overwhelming sense of guilt and love that still tie him to his estranged, now insane wife. When Wayne the senior sacrifices himself and his entire universe to save his son, he acts in a way that any father would, and despite his riches, this human motivation makes him relatable.

Rich Is a Superpower


Arrow: The TV Series
Under the hood, Oliver Queen still lives up to the hero title.

The 2016 DC Comics series, Rebirth established Oliver Queen as an advocate for social justice. Aside from trick arrows and sewer villains, the storyline explored the obligations of the rich to the poor and voiceless. Though the series’ modern take on the character upset a lot of fans, the ‘new and improved’ version of Oliver Queen isn’t that new.

Questions of what those with power owe those without are ever-present in the superhero genre. DC has used this trope before, adopting heroes like Superman as an archetype. In the 1998 comic Superman: Peace on Earth and the 2008 movie Man of Steel, Superman struggles with what it means to be powerful and questions whether one man can ever really possess the power to change the world. Add money to this narrative, and rich superheroes start to explore a real-life parallel that counterparts like Superman can’t convey.

In their daily, non-superhero lives, the super-rich of the comic-verse are a reflection of wealthy living as it exists in the real world. We hold our rich and famous accountable for their actions, and in some ways, we expect them to represent the best of us.

In real life, our heroes often fall short of being role models, but our favourite fantasy superstars give us the kind of heroes we deserve. Their everyday heroics allow us to indulge in the reverence we expect to give real celebrities.

The Spy Who Saved Me


Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins
The name’s Wayne, Bruce Wayne. Out of costume, Wayne leads an even more glamorous and clandestine life than his alter ego.

With the expensive gadgets, dapper suits, and double lives, the plot of most Batman stories would fit quite comfortably into a 007 novel. Part of the excitement of the superhero genre has always been the double lives our heroes often lead. But rich superheroes raise the stakes even further. There’s an allure to the secret lives of the rich that makes the men behind the mask as compelling as the heroes.

Arguably, our fascination with rich superheroes is a two-fold affair. It’s impossible to separate the characters from their money, so ‘rich’ certainly lends to the appeal. But it doesn’t end there. Ultimately, we appreciate these heroes because they’re profoundly accessible. And more like us than we often realise.

See Early Photos of Bruce Springsteen From the Photographer Who Captures His ‘True Grit’

The new book Bruce Springsteen: Further Up the Road traces nearly four decades of the beloved musician‘s career, as seen by the self-taught photographer Frank Stefanko. Stefanko’s photographs include the cover images for the Springsteen albums Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River, but many of the images in the book have never before been published.

In Springsteen’s memoir Born to Run, he described working with Stefanko:

I’d gotten to know Patti Smith a little through our work together on “Because the Night.” When I visited her during one of her performances at The Bottom Line, she gave me the name of a South Jersey photographer and said, “You should let this guy take your picture.”

One winter afternoon I drove south to Haddonfield, New Jersey, and met Frank Stefanko. Frank had photographed Patti at the beginning of her career. He worked a day job at a local meatpacking plant and continued to practice his craft in his spare time.

Frank Stefanko and Bruce Springsteen, Colts Neck, NJ, 2017.
Frank StefankoFrank Stefanko and Bruce Springsteen, Colts Neck, NJ, 2017.

Frank was a rough-edged but easygoing kind of guy. My recollection is he borrowed a camera for the day, called a teenage kid from next door to come over and hold up his one light and started shooting. I stood against some flowery wallpaper in Frank and his wife’s bedroom, looked straight into the camera, gave him my best “troubled young man,” and he did the rest. One of those photos ended up on the cover of Darkness on the Edge of Town.

Frank’s photographs were stark. His talent was he managed to strip away your celebrity, your artifice, and get to the raw you. His photos had a purity and a street poetry to them. They were lovely and true, but they weren’t slick. Frank looked for your true grit and he naturally intuited the conflicts I was coming to terms with. His pictures captured the people I was writing about in my songs and showed me the part of me that was still one of them. We had other cover options but they didn’t have the hungriness of Frank’s pictures.

Drummer Max Weinberg on His ‘Jukebox’ Tour, Sharing the Stage with Bruce Springsteen and the Loss of Music Legends

Max Weinberg’s has spend 43 years touring the world with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. And in between his job with the Boss, the 66-year-old drummer managed to hold down a post as bandleader for Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show. Turns out, he doesn’t do well with downtime.

After finishing the “River” tour in February, the longtime E Street Band drummer was ready to try something new. Enter Max Weinberg’s Jukebox, an interactive concert experience where the audience gets to pick the set list and hear Max and his revolving band play them as they were meant to be played. Below, we caught up with the drumming legend to find out more about his latest tour, how destiny brought him and Bruce Springsteen together and how he’s coping with the loss of some of music’s biggest legends.

How was Max Weinberg’s Jukebox born?
“I’m a drummer who loves to sit in with musicians and other bands. Fortunately I’ve had 43 years of the greatest platform in existence with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. When I got off the River tour, our last tour at the end of February, I took a month off or so and my manager asked, ‘What’s next?’ And I said, ‘You tell me.’ And he shared this idea of putting on show built off of playing songs that everyone want to hear. He described it and the idea is that it’s a human jukebox. We play two hours of all audience requests from a revolving list of about 300 songs from the ’60s and ’70s. The songs that I grew up with and feel particularly close to. One thing we noticed on tour so far is that the people who come to see it — and we’ve been very happy with the turnout — they love hearing these songs played with respect. We cover the English invasion, The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, Manfred Mann, The Zombies. There is some Neil Diamond, we throw in a Bon Jovi tune. It’s a great repertoire of music. Being of that era, I respect the original arrangement, the original feel of these songs. And of course we get a nice contingent of Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band fans who like to hear his songs played by someone who has played on the records.”

Who’s on stage with you?
“I have a revolving cast of characters. I have a team. I group of different people composed of musicians I’ve played with through the years who are familiar with this sort of genre and vocabulary of music. You have to be attentive to detail. I look for musicians from bands who are familiar with The Beatles catalog. Some of them might play in a local Beatles Tribute Band, because those musicians tend to be focused on the details of what made those records great. I don’t think there’s any songs in the repertoire that people haven’t heard played through the years at weddings, bar mitzvahs, sweet sixteen parties or proms. It’s really fun. It is a chance to really forget about the external world and find your reverie in great classic songs. The ’60s to late ’70s are part of the golden age of rock and roll.”

What are some of your most requested Bruce Springsteen songs?“Every night, without fail, someone asks for “Thunder Road,” “She’s the One” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” and we always fulfill that request. This is a party, it’s not a really a concert. You become one with the audience. It’s very interactive and the excitement level is high. We create an atmosphere where people are welcome to participate. It’s you, calling out the songs, played the way you want to hear them and that creates a very personal experience for the audience. For example, somebody called out “I Can See For Miles” by The Who and that song probably came out when I was a junior in high school. So I would imagine myself as Keith Moon , and I would channel him. When we were recording the River album, Bruce encouraged me on some of the songs to play like Keith Moon, he was a drummer was that was very vocative of that era, and I can do that. I’m not Keith Moon but I can channel that kind of energy and approach.”

The music industry has lost so many legends lately from Tom Petty to David Bowie to Prince. Are you honoring those late artists through your show?
“Absolutely. And a lot of their songs are on my playlist. Almost every night we play “Breakdown” and “American Girl” by Petty. We do “Handle With Care,” from George Harrison and The Traveling Wilburys, which the audience love. And from Bowie we often play “Rebel Rebel” and “The Jean Genie.” It’s been a tough couple of years. You get into that age group where you start losing people and losing people in such a sudden fashion like Prince and Tom Petty, it’s been tough. There’s enough going on in the world.”

Why do you think now more than ever are music and the arts so important?
“Bruce once said that our job is to go into your town, shake the rafters and allow you to dance all of these problems away for a couple of hours, and then fly back out of town. And my experience in that approach is to be 100 percent engaged at all times. With the Jukebox tour, I get to use the verbal chops I developed on seventeen years of late night TV as the bandleader for Conan O’Brien. It comes out naturally in the interaction with the audience and that’s a real fun aspect of it. The moment I come out on stage I explain what the audience will see, and people appreciate a performer talking to them. You get to see how the sausage is made musically on the stage. It’s very in the moment so I’m having an absolute ball.”

Bruce is known for his epic tours. How do you keep you stamina?
“At 66, there are several things you need do. First you need a lot of sleep, you really have to take care of yourself and you have to eat right. You’ve got to recognize that being a drummer is extraordinarily physical when you play for four or five hours with the E Street Band, you’ve got to be able to maintain that, not just get through it but you’ve got to be able to maintain the band. And another thing about playing with Bruce, is I have to be able to play longer than Bruce because he can stop whenever he wants and I can’t. It comes down to discipline, dedication and diet. It’s hard work whether its Bruce or my own band or anyone else I’ve played with. You got to commit yourself 100 percent, and naturally after 42 years that ethos rubbed off on me, and I like to think it rubbed off on the people who I’ve been associated with.”

Did you think when you answered that Village Voice ad at the age of 23 that you would end up where you are today?
“I’d like to think yes — I think there was a certain destiny. When I was a teenager I didn’t think that I would playing the drums professionally at 66. I always loved playing the drums, but there were other things I certainly could have done and had intended to do. When I met Bruce, I was on my way to finishing college and I was going go to law school. I was so idealistic about music that I wanted that idealism in place and fortunately for me with the E Street Band I’ve been able to do that. The odds are not even one in a million to bump up against a real true pioneer and a genius like Bruce Springsteen — they don’t exist. It’s a lot of luck, I think destiny and I worked really hard as a kid in drumming to get jobs, and then in the late ’60s I started to get serious about playing music. I was extremely idealistic about it, and I’ve been very fortunate to be able to maintain that in the face of everything you need to go through to be a musician.”

Is there you wish you had the chance to jam with?
“John Lennon comes to mind. I did see him crossing the street once in Manhattan in the ’70s. But I’ve been fortunate to play with so many people who I idolize and still do. You know specifically having the experience being the family music director on a late night TV show for 17 years, I’ve had the opportunity to perform with so many incredible artists and backing vocalists.

How many big Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band tours do you think you have left in you?
“I don’t think about retiring. As long as people wanna hear those songs, and we want to play them. I’m going to continue doing this for as long as I can. It’s really fun.”

Oakland Athletics Catcher Bruce Maxwell Arrested on Gun Charge

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) — Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell has been arrested in Arizona after a food delivery person alleged he pointed a gun at her.

Maxwell was the only player in Major League Baseball to take a knee this year during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Scottsdale police say officers went to Maxwell’s home Saturday night after getting a call about a person with a gun. Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

Police said Maxwell was held in custody pending an initial court appearance. It wasn’t known if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

TMZ Sports first reported the arrest.

The 26-year-old Maxwell hit .237 with three home runs and 22 RBIs in 76 games this season. He was projected to be Oakland’s starting catcher next year.
