Aretha's health problem resolved?; MCA's health problem definitely resolved; Vinyl continues to sell
- Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin told Jet magazine that her recent health problem that had her hospitalized just last month "has been resolved." There is still no word on when or if Franklin plans on returning to the stage.
- Another musician experiencing better health is Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys. His doctors have given him the all-clear after he was diagnosed with cancer in July 2009. The band will now go ahead with the release of its new album, "Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2" will be released in the spring.
- As album sales continue to dwindle -- down 13 percent in 2010 -- vinyl sales continued to gain ground. More than 2.8 million units were sold in 2010, the highest number since 1991 and a 14 percent increase from 2009.
