Uncle Tom’s Gabbin’... brought to you this week with a little help from Kathy Griffin, who wowed ‘em last week at the Waikiki Shell. Her references to Leonard’s Malasadas & Libby’s Manapua had the crowd literally eating out of her hand! She’s hilarious ... come back†soon, Kathy ...

The heaviest guitarists in the universe crave playtime with him…you get to see him live next week at Blaisdell Arena for far less effort…that’d be Rock & Roll Hall of Famer B.B. King, who’s collaborated with the likes of Eric Clapton, Stanley Clarke, John McLaughlin, Robert Cray and Jimmie Vaughn, and that amazing Irish band known as U2, among many others… Fun fact: Aside from winning 14 Grammys, did you know that B.B. has appeared in 11 motion pictures? In each picture, he played the part of a king - himself… And he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (between Milton Berle and Vivian Leigh) ...

Spotted doing the R&R thing ... Hollywood agent John Campisi and son Sam, frolicking beachside with girlfriend Hilary Swank and her too-hot pink bikini ...

Elvis Presley‘s Graceland estate is opening in Denmark! This Danish tribute to the King known as Graceland Randers is almost identical to the original, except it is twice the size to house a shop, restaurant and museum…. Tourism officials in Randers project as many as 125,000 Elvis fans could make the trip annually to see the nearly 6,000 Elvis items, from guitars and letters to clothes that will be on display ...

Fun fact: ELVIS got a bath! Drivers on Ward Ave. were rubbernecking last

This week in 1976: Peter Frampton performs at Blaisdell Arena with a nearly two-hour concert showcasing his trademark clear vocals and solid guitar work - ticket prices $7.50, $6.50 and $5.50!† The crowd goes wild over Frampton’s melodic ballads and soft rock hits like Baby, I Love Your Way, I’ll Give You Money, Show Me The Way, Do You Feel Like We Do ... and a rousing version of the Rolling Stones’ †Jumpin’ Jack Flash.†Gary Wright, with his own massive chart-topper Dream Weaver, opens the show ... Frampton’s Frampton Comes Alive! is No. 1 on the Billboard charts and remains there, but the No. 1 hit in Hawaii is Boogie Fever by the Sylvers…
