Turner/Phelps Pitch In at Live 8.2

Durango, CO (TP News) -- Contributors to the Turner/Phelps blog, pushed aside their laptops and unplugged their Internet connections for one day during the Fourth of July weekend to add their talents and voices to Live 8.2, the Durango-based Live 8 celebrity impersonation concert held to raise awareness for the poor in developing nations.

Turner (far left) strapped on his guitar and gave rousing renditions of his originals: "It's Not a Roll of Quarters, I'm Happy to See You," "The Peter Brady Shirt Song," "Can My Forehead Get Any Longer," and the crowd favorite, "My Bus Driver Dumped Pooh In Alamosa."
Phelps (center/center) and two sopranos from the Ignacio First Baptist All Women's Choir and Fashion Boutique impersonated Destiny's Child and sang a-capella versions of "Slow Hand," "Funky Town," Manson's "Dope Show," and received standing ovations for their madrigal rendition of the Soft Cell classic, "Sex Dwarf."
Mitch (far right), wearing his signature table cloth and made up to look like Stevie Wonder, fared less well with the crowd for his unappreciated humor and mediocre covers of "Your Back Door Man," and a lude rendition of Culture Club's "Karma Chameleon" He was finally booed off the stage for butchering the Simon & Garfunkle classic, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" which he changed to "Durango Hair Can Tickle."

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme indeed, Mitch.
