In the first “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” country singer Trace Adkins was declared the winner, and he received the grand prize of $250,000 for his charity of choice: the American Red Cross. (Second place went to magician Penn Jillette.) "The Celebrity Apprentice," which is executive produced and hosted by Donald Trump (who chooses the winner), features celebrities competing for their selected charities. Adkins was named the winner in a live season finale that NBC televised on May 19, 2013. The season finale’s after-party was held at Cipriani in New York City's midtown Manhattan. I had a chance to briefly interview several of the stars at the after-party. Here is what this “Celebrity Apprentice” star said...

On paper, at least to rock reviewers, the 2013 M3 Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion looked less like a musical event than it did a quarantine: so many 1980s metal bands, each more critically abused than the last! So many black-T-shirt-clad armies of fans of said panned bands! All in one place!
So much fun!
