Latest Tori Sightings added to The Dent
Updated Sat, Jan 22, 2005 - 11:37pm ET
I have added 7 new Tori sightings to The Dent. They involve Ryan Sudick, Matt Chamberlain and William Shatner, Ryan Beck and the Orchesis Dance Company, Q Magazine, CNN and Condoleeza Rice, Aussie singer Delta Goodrem, and Christopher O'Riley.
Keep in mind I only place on The Dent a small selection of sightings I receive, due to space and time constraints...
Interview with Ryan Sudick at vteens.org

Jennifer tells me that Matt Chamberlain plays drums on the latest album (October 2004) by William Shatner called Has Been. (Yes, this is Captain Kirk!) You can see a listing for this album at Amazon.com.
Ryan Beck and the Orchesis Dance Company
A January 3, 2005 news release was posted at Cal Poly News, the online newspaper for California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. The news release was about Orchesis Dance Company's "Echoes and Accents", which was to be presented in Cal Poly's Spanos Theatre in January & February, 2005.

The February 2005 issue of Q Magazine in the U.K. includes an article called '"20 Things you need to know about Rock'n'Roll & Animals". The number 4 item was what you see below.
CNN and Condoleeza Rice
Raven Rogers reports:
This Morning (January 19, 2005) I was watching CNN and they were showing a clip of Condoleeza Rice walking through the crowd of her Secretary of State Confirmation Hearing and they were playing Tori's 'Sweet Dreams'. I thought that was neat that CNN would *know* that that song was related to Bush Sr. and his son...
Aussie singer Delta Goodrem
Samantha Malagré reports:
Not sure if this is interesting to your readers, but recently I was watching Top of the Pops and they had Australian Singer Delta Goodrem on. Delta, also plays the piano, and they asked her who she would like to swap identities with - her answer was Tori Amos. "Tori Amos so I could play the piano like her, that'd be great. That'd be good fun." I also found the transcript from this interview here.
Christopher O'Riley, pianist and host of NPR's "From The Top"
juliet stephens reports:
As you've mentioned before on the ent, "from the top" host Christopher O'Riley often plays covers of tori songs and piano pieces by other musicians. Tonight on the show (December 17, 2004) he played his own version of "Mother".
