Wondering what’s been going on in the Burton household lately? Dolores gives all the details (and we mean ALL the details) in a letter posted today on the Official Web Site. Dolores shares an important disclosure about the sixth album’s material being “really experimental”, and laments about the cold and flu season.
In Dolores’s letter to fans, she also reveals a few of her St. Patrick’s Day plans, including plans to attend Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day parade with her kids dressed as “little leprechauns”. And speaking of the Burton children, Dolores tells fans that her stepson Donny, now eleven and a half years old, is venturing out into the world of rock ‘n roll for himself through the music of Avril Lavigne, who Dolores describes as “kinda cutesy”.
Still, “cutesy” or not, Dolores compliments the kindheartedness of young musicians like Dido and Westlife’s Brian McFadden. McFadden and Dolores worked together on the live performance of “The Little Drummer Boy” during the 2001 Vatican Christmas Concert for the Pope in Rome; and recently, with a seat next to McFadden on a plane headed to Dublin, the young boy-band singer gave Dolores a ride to her hotel where she met her mom and children. The experience prompted Dolores to comment on what “a really nice guy” Brian McFadden is, and how she is feeling like the “grandma of rock” with her inspiration to younger musicians. Dolores’s update on the Official Web Site even includes an interesting photo sent in from Litsa Derekenary (Litsa’s Zombieguide Forums profile) that perfectly embodies the “grandmother of rock” theme.
