Jimmy Cobb, Drummer on Miles Davis’s ‘Kind of Blue,’ Dies at 91

The music world said farewell to jazz drummer, Jimmy Cobb, this past Sunday, May 24. Jimmy died from lung cancer at home in New York City. He was 91 years old. A native of Washington, D.C., Jimmy was best known as a drummer in Miles Davis' sextet from 1957 until 1963.

The last surviving member of that landmark album’s sextet, he was a master of understatement, propelling his bandmates with a quiet persistence.

Another 2020 tour has bitten the dust. The Doobie Brothers' fiftieth anniversary tour with Michael McDonald back on board has been postponed until 2021. (I'm relieved because I had tickets to the June 30 show at the Jones Beach Theater.)

The Doobie Brothers regret to announce that their 50th Anniversary Tour has been rescheduled. This decision has been made with the health and safety of fans, crew and local employees in mind. The tour will now be rescheduled for 2021 starting Jul 17 in West Palm Beach and ending on Oct 23 in New Orleans. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, previously announced dates in Mount Pleasant, MI, Sioux City, IA, Boise, ID, Albuquerque, NM, Little Rock, AR, Bossier City, LA, and Memphis, TN have been cancelled.

Fans are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for the new dates. If ticket holders can no longer attend or would prefer a refund, they will receive an email directly allowing them to request one. For any further ticketing inquiries, fans should reach out to their point of purchase.

Carly Simon - That's The Way I Always Heard It Should Be - 1971

Are you kidding me? How insanely incredible is this performance? I’ve always felt this song was one of the most beautiful pop songs ever and Carly Simon was hotter than the surface of the sun, but this performance.....? Are you kidding me?! Wow! From the summer of 1971 in Central Park, NYC, with George Harrison and Art Garfunkel in attendance...Carly Simon, “That’s The Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be”.

The New York Jets just signed former Super Bowl MVP quarterback, Joe Flacco, to a one year contract. Flacco played eleven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens (2008-2018) and last year with the Denver Broncos (2019). The Ravens made the postseason seven years with Flacco as quarterback. They won Super Bowl XLVII (played on February 3, 2013) with Flacco winning the game's MVP award. The 35 year old Flacco was signed by the Jets today to compete for the job as Sam Darnold's backup.

The Beatles' photographer and collaborator Astrid Kirchherr dies aged 81

German photographer and artist, ASTRID KIRCHHERR, who was a close friend of the Beatles, has died at the age of 81. She died this past Wednesday in Hamburg. Another source says she died this past Tuesday. She would have celebrated her 82nd birthday this coming Wednesday, May 20.

Astrid was a major figure in the lives of the Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe) during their earliest days in Hamburg, Germany...her hometown. She was one of three Hamburg friends who were absorbed into the Beatles world in the early 1960s. The others were artist and musician, Klaus Voormann, and photographer, Jurgen Vollmer. Astrid was engaged to Stuart Sutcliffe, the Beatles bassist, until he died in 1962.

Astrid Kirchherr, collaborator and photographer for The Beatles, has died in her hometown of Hamburg aged 81, the band's historian has confirmed.

Guitarist JORGE SANTANA, the younger brother of Carlos Santana, has died. Jorge died yesterday at the age of 68. He would have celebrated his 69th birthday on June 13.

Jorge was a member of the band Malo, who came together in San Francisco in 1971. They released their self titled debut album, which featured their biggest hit, "Suavecito", in early 1972. Their second album, "Dos", followed later that summer. Following 1973's "Evolution" and 1974's "Ascencion", Jorge left Malo. From there, he released his first two solo albums, "Jorge Santana", in 1978, and the Allen Toussaint produced, "It's All About Love". Jorge was briefly a member of Santana, playing guitar alongside his brother. He appears on their 1993 live album, "Sacred Fire Live In South America", and their concert video, "Sacred Fire Live In Mexico". In 1994, Jorge joined brother Carlos and their nephew, Carlos Hernandez, to form Santana Brothers. The trio released one self titled album.

Yesterday we learned that former Mets, Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics manager, Art Howe, has been battling coronavirus for the past several weeks. (Art also played for the Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals.)

Also yesterday, the baseball world lost Bob Watson, who was a member of the New York Yankees family, both as a player and general manager. Bob died after a lengthy battle with kidney disease. He was 74. Bob played first base and left field from 1966 until 1984, spending 13 1/2 years with the Astros (1966-1979), a half season with the Boston Red Sox (1979), 2 1/2 years with the Yankees (1980-1982) and 2 1/2 years with the Atlanta Braves (1982-1984). He was a two time All Star for the Astros in 1973 and 1975 and finished his career with a .295 batting average and 184 homeruns. Bob later coached for the Athletics and became the Astros general manager in 1993. He was the Yankees general manager from 1995 until 1998.

Here’s more on Sparks, their new album and other upcoming projects.

The novel coronavirus pandemic is slowing down a lot of bands. But brothers Russell and Ron Mael are fired up about a wealth of Sparks projects on the runway.

The new Sparks album, “A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip” is coming Friday digitally and July 3 on CD, LP and cassette.

The new Sparks album, “A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip” is coming Friday digitally and July 3 on CD, LP and cassette.

Due to the worldwide situation with Covid-19, the physical release (LP, CD, cassette) of Sparks’ new album A STEADY DRIP, DRIP, DRIP is unfortunately postponed to July 3rd, 2020.

However, the album WILL STILL BE RELEASED DIGITALLY on May 15th. ✨

The pushback of the physical release is largely due to shipping issues with retailers & manufacturing the supply chains that this unprecedented situation has brought along. So we hope that you’ll be understanding of this decision.

Ron & Russell and we all at Sparks HQ strongly feel that everyone in Sparks’ world could use a little inspiration and something to look forward to, so the digital release will go ahead as planned and will be available across all the streaming & download platforms. Also, those who’ve preordered the album from the official Sparks store will receive a link to download it on May 15th.

We will still go ahead with releasing songs and videos for the new album as planned - with the next new song being released this Friday.

Ron and Russell hope that you all are enjoying the new music and the new releases leading up to May 15th and beyond. ✨

Our weekly "bonus time" together is Saturday afternoon, from 1PM-4PM. Being that WFUV's sports show, "One On One" is on hiatus, I've been called in from the bullpen. See y'all at 1PM.

In what is becoming a sad, daily event, there is another music death to make mention of.

Rock singer, Brian Howe, died yesterday of a heart attack at home in Florida. He was 66. Howe is best known as the former lead vocalist in Bad Company from their 1986 reunion until 1994. This was, of course, when Paul Rodgers wasn't with the band. Howe was with Bad Company for their albums "Fame And Fortune" (1986), "Dangerous Age" (1988), "Holy Water" (1990), "Here Comes Trouble" (1992) and "What You Hear Is What You Get The Best Of Bad Company Live" (1993). Upon Howe's departure, Robert Hart joined Bad Company as lead singer, with Rodgers returning in 1998.

Before his time in Bad Company, Howe was a member of the band White Spirit and sang with Ted Nugent on Ted's 1984 album "Penetrator".

After Bad Company, Brian went solo, releasing three albums.
