Condoleezza Rice and Aretha Franklin perform duet; John Lennon's murderer up for parole; iPod no good for jazz
By Aaron Leitko
-Condoleezza Rice and Aretha Franklin performed a duet together on Tuesday night during a benefit concert for Philadelphia's Mann Music Center for the Performing Arts. They played "Say a Little Prayer," with the former Secretary of State backing up the soul music legend on piano.
-Mark David Chapman--the man who shot John Lennon to death in 1980--is up for parole. The legendary song-writer and former Beatle's widow, Yoko Ono, has mailed a letter to the parole board asking that he not be released.
-Jazz blogger Marc Myers doesn't think twenty-something iPod users fully appreciate music because they're too busy multitasking.
-Want to own a gross piece of rock & roll history? Too bad. A Memphis-based embalmer recently attempted to auction off the tools that he allegedly used to conduct Elvis Presley's autopsy. Luckily, the auction has been called off due to "questions of ownership." Instead, the embalmer will donate the tools to an unknown party.
