Katherine Forestier e-mail: email@example.com Sheryl Crow: Rockin' The Globe HBO, 9pm A former backing singer for Michael Jackson and Rod Stewart, Sheryl Crow (above) is being touted by HBO as the best rock artist in history. Neil Chase (see below) and many others have a different view. Crow may be the focus of a HBO special concert, but she is unlikely to be a choice selection for Chase's Seven To Nine party edition. 'I don't have anything against her, just that there are some rather more interesting CDs I have to pass on to the unsuspecting public,' Chase says. Meanwhile, Crow offers her view on numbers to be featured tonight: they are, she says, 'more personal than anything I've done before, kind of like standing on stage naked'. Seven To Nine RTHK Radio 3, 7pm Meanwhile, Neil Chase celebrates the fifth birthday of his music show by giving away all the CDs he plays tonight, but promises they will not include any from Sheryl Crow, the Backstreet Boys or Britney Spears. Instead, he'll focus on the alternative to 'mundane pop and mind-numbing musical mediocrity', as he describes it, with recent triumphs from Eels, Cure and Doves, as well as Lou Reed, the new Pink Floyd live double CD Is There Anybody Out There, plus top local female rockers Sisters Of Sharon's Paper Planes And Daisy Chains. Seven To Nine is a must for those passionate about alternative music. Also, check out Chase's excellent Web site - www.neilchase.com - where he further exercises his passion for his subject, with news, trivia and CD reviews. Chase, who hails from the Beatles' Liverpool, seems to have music in his bones. He has clubbed around the world, with stints in unlikely music meccas such as the Middle East and Guangzhou. His radio and Net fans will hope five years freelancing for RTHK has not been too long for him and that they will be celebrating more birthdays to come.
