Bob Dylan will write 6 more books; Katy Perry coming to Merriweather; Cake scores No. 1 album

By David Malitz

cakeCake: Going the distance, to the top of the charts.

- Bob Dylan's autobiographical "Chronicles: Volume One" was so great and covered such a small amount of his storied career that we all hoped he'd pen a sequel. Well, how about six? The legendary songwriter just signed a six-book deal with Simon & Schuster that will include two "Chronicles," one book relating to his Sirius/XM radio show and three more about ... something.

- Katy Perry will visit Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 15 as part of her California Dreams tour. Pre-sale tickets are available this weekend with the general on-sale date next Saturday, Jan. 29.

- Another week, another lowest-selling No. 1 album in Billboard history. This time it's Cake that takes the honor, hitting the top spot by moving 44,000 copies of "Showroom of Compassion." Not only is it the band's first No. 1 album, it's the first time the veteran San Diego Sacramento group has been in the top 10.

- Among the interesting tidbits in Rolling Stone's cover story on Lil Wayne -- he felt dissed when the Miami Heat's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade didn't say hello to him at a recent Heat/Hornets game.

- The Chris Cornell solo acoustic experience comes to Sixth & I Historic Synagogue on April 17.
