Jim Marshall, legendary rock photographer, dies; Bieber's manager arrested for lack of tweets; Phoenix gives away live album

Miles DavisFor most photographers getting this shot of Miles Davis would be a career highlight. Just another day for Jim Marshall. (Jim Marshall)

- Legendary rock photographer Jim Marshall passed away at the age of 74. Marshall is widely acknowledged as the premier photographer of the rock-and-roll era, with numerous iconic shots to his credit. Johnny Cash giving the one-finger salute at San Quentin? Marshall. Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire at Monterey Pop? Marshall. You'll find plenty more that you recognize in this Rolling Stone gallery or our photo gallery. Marshall stayed active with his work and had just published a new book, "Match Prints," and was scheduled to promote the book at an event in New York on Wednesday.

- Here's one of those stories that would make someone who just time traveled from as recently as 2007 completely confused. Scott "Scooter" Braun, manager of that lovable scamp Justin Bieber, was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance because police say he ignored their plea to send messages on Twitter telling crowds that a scheduled November Bieber appearance at a Long Island shopping mall had been canceled. OK, then.

- Do you like Phoenix? I do, although I'm not sure I like their chances against Utah in a first round series. Deron Williams can bully Steve Nash around. Oh, we're talking about the band? Yeah, they're not bad either. That "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" album had some pretty catchy songs. And now the Frenchies are giving away a live album for free on its Web site. It's got eight songs, it's called "Live in Sydney" and that's basically the story. If you weren't able to snag ticket to the band's sold-out April 26 show at Constitution Hall, perhaps this can be of some comfort.

New orleans drummer Bunchy Johnson just died also. He played with a who's who of old-school New Orleans r'n'b/rock and with Mardi Gras Indian combos.
