Steve Lawrence Releases Musical Valentine to Wife Eydie Gorme

Originally posted 02/11/2014 07:00AM

It's not every 78-year-old who releases a new album for Valentine's Day – or has his friends Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood backing him up.

But, where showbiz is concerned, Steve Lawrence isn't just any 78-year-old.

"To my knowledge, it's over 50-something, and my first in 10 years, at least," the familiar voice, calculating the number of albums he's released since his first in 1953, tells PEOPLE from the home in Las Vegas he and his late wife Eydie Gorme shared since 1980.

Titled When You Come Back to Me Again, after the Garth Brooks song on the lead track, the new album contains 10 songs and, according to Lawrence, has him "surrounded with a new sound."

Not that the listener should expect One Direction. "I can't compete with the kids," Lawrence admits, "but they can't compete with me."

PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

The Rocket Man needs to take a little time off to refuel.

Sir Elton John, 66, has been diagnosed with an appendix abscess that requires surgery, his spokesman confirms to PEOPLE.

The affliction has forced him to postpone all upcoming shows on his European tour, including a concert Friday in London's Hyde Park alongside Elvis Costello and Ray Davies.

"Elton is incredibly disappointed to postpone these tour dates," says his rep. "To know that he made such super-human efforts and continued to perform to thousands through his illness only confirms his dedication to his European fans. He is eager to be back on top form and return to play the remaining shows starting in early September 2013."
