- Today marks the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death. Tell us where you were when you heard the news, read Matt Hurwitz's feature in today's Washington Post, and tune in to the Diane Rehm Show on NPR at 11 a.m. to hear former Washington Post pop music critic Richard Harrington discuss Lennon's legacy.

- Country legend Willie Nelson, who was in Washington on Sunday night to help fete Kennedy Center Honoree Merle Haggard, has dodged a felony charge in a recent pot bust.

- Perhaps following in Lil Wayne's footsteps, incarcerated rap superstar T.I. has started posting letters from jail on the web. A letter posted yesterday, the rapper vows to become "a better man."

- If you missed Ted Leo's show in Baltimore last night, Midnight Sun has a good interview with the punk rock songsmith.
