WATCH: GH Daytime Emmy-Winning Director and Musician, Phideaux Xavier, Perform “Do What You Will”


Thursday’s episode of General Hospital saw multi-Daytime Emmy-winning director, Phideaux Xavier, step in front of the camera and have the opportunity to show the other side of his talents, as a singer/songwriter and musician, to GH viewers.

In ‘a life-imitating-art moment’ within the constructs of the storyline, Curtis (Donnell Turner) needs a band to perform on a big night at his new nightclub, The Savoy.

When plans go awry in the band booking department, in steps Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) former record guy, Link, who is up to no good, and gets the band “Phideaux” the gig and they perform for many Port Charles notables and a packed house.

When they take the stage, Xavier performs his new song “Do What You Will”.

Check out the performance below.

The lighting was good and it was nice seeing a scene filled with people. Were those behind-the-scenes crew members pulling double duty as extras?

There you have it.

If that what it takes to keep GH running, I’ll take it. Gawd if we have to watch more GMA or a dumb cooking show I’ll retreat back to the ID Channel ALL day!

That was so painful and uncomfortable to watch. I hope he doesn’t give up his day job.

And don’t get me started on the so-fake-it’s-cringy reactions from the cast.

I’m 70 years old! Wasn’t a bit painful, and at my age I DO know pain.

I absolutely loved it! Alternative rock! Hope to see you perform again ‘

Being 57 yrs old..and an old 1978 to 1987 huge goth fan… the music had early Bauhaus sound with that classic 80 synth not mention Xaivers authentic appearance to that Era.. I say WELL DOnE ! It was a surprising treat.

Love to hear him do “Haunted when the minutes drag.”

I agree, it reminded me of Peter Murphy. Really good.

Peter Murphy, singing with Billy Idol’s band maybe?

The song was definitely closer to “White Wedding” or “Rebel Yell” than anything Bauhaus ever did.

Can’t disagree that I too hear elements of White Wedding… but perhaps that is the sign of a good performance? That it made many of us hear our old favorite goth/post punk/ earlier alt. Indie all in the one song. Too bad Micheal Eastman didn’t channel Caleb or are you still holding him down there with you

I agree, Brian. Definitely an 80s vibe to it. But those cutaway reactions! Some of those folks should not be caught on camera “rocking out”.

He was pretty good!

I think Curtis must have been serving up some real booze to keep the cast looking like they really enjoyed it. What the hell, I’m so.old, maybe I don’t know what’s good anymore, just give me some nickles for the Jukebox, and if you didn’t like it, you could always pull the plug.

General Hospital’s Adam J. Harrington Weighs-in On John and Carly, and How it’s ‘Starting to Get Very Complicated”

On recent episodes of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) came to John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) rescue as he was beaten down in an assault. Carly put on her “nurses cap,” sort of speak, and got John to his hotel room and watched over to him, to make sure he didn’t lose consciousness.

GH fans also got their first glimpse of what may be a new romance for Carly, if she and John continue to bond.  If John and Carly were to have a relationship, it would certainly have a ripple effect with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Adam J. Harrington shared his view on the scenes and what might be next between the two. Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Harrington shared, “I thought it was written in a way where there’s an understanding and a respect between them both. I don’t think there was any moment where she was not aware that he’s an FBI agent, and there was no moment that he wasn’t aware of her history and relationship to other people in the town. I really liked it. I was really looking forward to shooting it with Laura and we had a really nice time shooting it.”

When Carly and John part ways, it seems there were some romantic sparks, as Harrington puts it, “Isn’t that interesting that sometimes with people, the one moment they actually show how they feel is when they know there’s an escape hatch. They know they’re about to walk away. So, it’s almost safe in that moment to do it. I thought that was really special about how (the writers) handled John and Carly. Even the music in that scene was beautifully done.”

Where is this all heading? Conflict! Internally and professionally, and as Adam explains, “Who Carly was to John on paper as just a tool to be used as bait is starting to get very complicated.”

What would you think of a John and Carly pairing? Would you prefer him with Anna, or neither of them? Let us know via the comment section and take our poll below.

General Hospital’s Steve Burton Reveals the Emotional Scene He Almost Could Not Get Through

On a recent episode of General Hospital, Jason received a message from his mother, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) via a note. The effect it had on Jason’s portrayer, Steve Burton turned out to be quite visceral.

As GH fans know, although Jason’s bio-mom was Susan Moore, he was raised and adopted by Monica. Speaking on his Daily Drama podcast with his co-host and GH co-star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Steve shared some insight on the difficulties he had getting through that scene.

Burton shared that in the key moment, “Brooklyn (played by Amanda Setton) came in and that’s where she gave me (Jason) the letter from Monica. That was a very hard scene for me to do. That was a tough one. That was the one time I was almost going to call ‘cut!’  It read ‘Jason, I believe in you.’ I was literally going to walk off the set.”

To clarify and in the story, Monica was saying “I believe in you” and that she knows Jason didn’t shoot Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Steve added, “It was tough, man. Emotionally, it was a tough scene. It was overwhelming in the moment.”

Steve went on to detail to Anderson, “She (Brook Lynn) pushed it to me and I read it and she was walking out and I had to stop her, but I was so emotional I couldn’t even get it out.  And at that point, I’m like, ‘Do I just keep going … or do I just walk off the set right now?’ But, I knew just to stay, because it’s so hard to get back there, once you shut it down. I knew, the next take wasn’t going to be the same.”

It’s clear that Leslie Charleson is so missed on-screen as Monica by all of her castmates, and that Jason and Monica had a very special mother/son relationship throughout the decades on GH.

What did you think of the moment when Jason got a note from Monica that said, “I believe in you?” Were you touched as well? Let us know in the comment section. You can check out the latest episode of Steve and Bradford’s podcast below.
