Patsy Cline tribute to feature covers of her twelve best-known songs
Michelle Branch, Norah Jones, Diana Krall, k.d. lang, Lee Ann Womack and Natalie Cole have recorded songs for Remembering Patsy, a Patsy Cline tribute album to be released later this year on MCA. The release will be roughly timed to coincide with what would have been Cline's seventieth birthday, September 8, 2002
The tracks for Remembering Patsy will be the dozen songs initially selected for her 12 Greatest Hits album, which had sold more than 9 million copies and spent 766 weeks on Billboard's Country Albums chart.
Krall takes on what is decidedly Cline's most popular song, the Willie Nelson-penned "Crazy," which forty-one years ago crossed over onto the pop charts, climbing as high as Number Seven. Legendary Nashville scribe Hank Cochran had the best luck writing for Cline. Four of his songs made Cline's 12 Greatest and are being re-cut for Remembering Patsy: "She Got You" by Lee Ann Womack, "Why Can't He Be You" by Jones, "I Fall to Pieces" -- co-written with Harlan Howard -- by Cole, and "You're Stronger Than Me," by an as-yet-confirmed artist. Branch will take on "Strange," a song penned by Mel Tillis and Fred Burch, while lang sings Wayne Walker's and Webb Pierce's "Leavin' on Your Mind."
The performers for the other six songs, which include "Walkin' After Midnight," "Sweet Dreams," "Back in Baby's Arms" and others, will be confirmed in the next few weeks.
Cline died on March 5, 1963 in a plane crash in Tennessee.

Elvis Beats the Beatles
Nearly twenty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley is Number One again in the U.K. A remix of his "A Little Less Conversation" by Dutch DJ JXL claimed the top spot on the British singles charts yesterday, bringing the King's total of chart-topping hits to eighteen, one more than the Beatles' current tally.
The song, which Elvis recorded for the 1968 film Live a Little, Love a Little (and was also featured in last year's Ocean's 11), was remixed with the original vocals intact for a Nike World Cup soccer-themed commercial. When the new single, retitled "Elvis vs. JXL -- A Little Less Conversation," was released last week, it sold nearly 70,000 copies on the first day.
The track will be released in the U.S. on June 25th.

Novelist Ken Kesey dies at 66
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) ----
Ken Kesey, who broke into the
literary scene with "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"
and then helped immortalize the psychedelic 1960s with an
LSD-fueled bus ride, died Saturday. He was 66.
Kesey died at Sacred Heart Medical
Center in Eugene, two weeks after cancer surgery to remove 40
percent of his liver.
After studying writing at Stanford
University, Kesey gained fame in 1962 with "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest," followed quickly with "Sometimes a Great
Notion" in 1964, then went 28 years before publishing his
third major novel.
In 1964, he rode cross-country in
an old school bus named Furthur driven by Neal Cassady, hero of
Jack Kerouac's beat generation classic, "On The Road."
The passengers called themselves the Merry Pranksters and sought
enlightenment through the psychedelic drug LSD. The odyssey is
documented in Tom Wolfe's 1968 account, "The Electric
Kool-Aid Acid Test."
"There was a lot of the
frontiersman in him, an unwillingness to accept conventional
answers to a lot of profound questions," said Pulitzer Prize
winning novelist Larry McMurtry, who was in a Stanford writing
seminar with Kesey. "We argued and debated a lot of things.
But I never would not listen to him, even if I thought some of
what he said was gobbledygook,
because there would always be the
perception of genius if you waited him out."
When the Los Angeles Times honored
Kesey's lifetime of work with the Robert Kirsh Award in 1991,
Charles Bowden wrote that "Anyone trying to get a handle on
our times had better read Kesey. And unless we get lucky and
things change, they're going to have to read him a century from
"He's gone too soon and he
will leave a big gap. Always the leader, now he leads the way
again," said Ken Babbs, a longtime friend.
"Sometimes a Great
Notion," widely considered Kesey's best book, tells the saga
of the Stamper clan, rugged independent loggers carving a living
out of the Oregon woods under the motto, "Never Give A
Inch." It was made into a movie starring Henry Fonda and Paul
But "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest" became much more widely known because of a
movie that Kesey hated. It tells the story of R.P. McMurphy, who
feigned insanity to get off a prison farm, only to be lobotomized
when he threatened the authority of the mental hospital.
The 1974 movie swept the Academy
Awards for best picture, best director, best actor and best
actress, but Kesey sued the producers because it took the
viewpoint away from the character of the schizophrenic Indian,
Kesey based the story on
experiences working at the Veterans Administration hospital in
Palo Alto, Calif., while attending Wallace Stegner's writing
seminar at Stanford. Kesey also volunteered for experiments with
Another member of the Stegner
seminar, poet, essayist and novelist Wendell Berry, keeps a
picture of Kesey, Babbs and himself on his desk in his Port Royal,
Ky. The photo was taken during a visit last fall to Oregon.
"He was a man, as far as I
could tell, totally without pretense. He never was pretending to
be somebody he wasn't. And he never pretended to be the man he
was," Berry said. "The public just had to put up with
him as he was, or be grateful for him."
After "Cuckoo's Nest,"
Kesey continued to write short autobiographical fiction, magazine
articles and children's books, but didn't produce another major
novel until "Sailor Song" in 1992, his long-awaited
Alaska book, which he described as a story of "love at the
end of the world."
"This is a real old-fashioned
form," he said of the novel. "But it is sort of the
Vatican of the art. Every once in a while you've got to go get a
blessing from the pope."
Kesey considered pranks part of his
art, and in 1990 took a poke at the Smithsonian Institution by
announcing he would drive his old psychedelic bus to Washington,
D.C., to give it to the nation. The museum recognized the bus as a
new one, with no particular history, and rejected the gift.
In a 1990 interview with The
Associated Press, Kesey said it had become harder to write since
he became famous.
"Famous isn't good for a
writer. You don't observe well when you're being observed,"
In 1990, Kesey returned to the
University of Oregon -- where he had earned a bachelor's degree in
journalism -- to teach novel writing. With each student assigned a
character and writing under the gun, the class produced
"Caverns," under the pen name OU Levon, or UO Novel
Among his proudest achievements was
seeing "Little Tricker the Squirrel Meets Big Double the
Bear," which he wrote from an Ozark mountains tale told by
his grandmother, included on the 1991 Library of Congress list of
suggested children's books.
"I'm up there with Dr.
Seuss," he crowed.
Fond of performing, Kesey sometimes
recited the piece in top hat and tails accompanied by an
orchestra, throwing a shawl over his head while assuming the
character of his grandmother reciting the nursery rhyme, "One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
Born in La Junta, Colo., on Sept.
17, 1935, Kesey moved as a young boy in 1943 from the dry prairie
to his grandparents' dairy farm in Oregon's lush Willamette
After serving four months in jail
for a marijuana bust in California, he set down roots in Pleasant
Hill in 1965 with his high school sweetheart, Faye, and reared
four children. Their rambling red barn house with the big
Pennsylvania Dutch star on the side became a landmark of the
psychedelic era, attracting visits from myriad strangers in
tie-dyed clothing seeking enlightenment.
Furthur rusted away in a boggy
pasture while Kesey raised beef cattle.
Kesey was diagnosed with diabetes
His son Jed, killed in a 1984 van
wreck on a road trip with the University of Oregon wrestling team,
was buried in the back yard. Kesey also wrestled in college.
In a recorded message on Kesey's
office phone, Babbs said: "Ken Kesey, a great husband,
father, granddad and friend. Done in by a bum liver. As always, he
gave it a great fight, but his body pulled its last dirty trick
and done him in. If he has on legacy it is for us the living to
carry on with courage, compassion, generosity and love."

Local Muslim-Americans Launch Website
by Dakota Smith
"Whosever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has
killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be
as if he had saved the life of all mankind." --quote from the Koran,
via the website Muslims Against Terrorism
With the goal of educating people of all faiths, a local group of
Muslim-Americans have launched an ambitious website called Muslims
Against Terrorism. Aasma Khan and 10 other young professional Muslims
living in New York quickly put up the site on Sept. 16. Yet over the
last six weeks, with the help of Web design firm Rayhawk Corporation,
the site has evolved into a professional-looking resource on Islam,
offering, among other things, links to news articles and sections
that examine the Koran.
"By better understanding Islam and helping Americans at large
understand Islam, we are in a better position to help people overseas
understand Islam and promote dialogue," says the 30-year-old Khan.
But the site's goal is also to help Muslims; links to information on
civil liberties are listed on the site. Khan points out that American
Muslims, now forced to explain and defend their religion, are facing
a defining moment.
"It's important that Muslims can talk about and educate themselves
and others on what is Islam," Khan says. "It's important for everyone
to understand Islam so people like Osama bin Laden cannot manipulate
the religion, and we're here to talk about Islam religion and debunk
the use of it in politics."
Khan and the original group that formed that website, meanwhile, have
grown into a nonprofit organization, also called Muslims Against
Terrorism, already 95 members strong nationwide.
But Khan credits the Internet with the group's ability to reach
people; already, she is getting regular feedback from people of all
religions, from as far away as South Africa and England.
"The World Wide Web has allowed us to get the message out there in a
way that we never could have otherwise," Khan says. "The website is
creating a personal experience for everyone who goes there."
Sports Illustrated's Top 20 Sports Movie by boomersint
1. Bull Durham (1988)
The action and little details are perfect.
And there's Susan Sarandon.
2. Raging Bull (1980)
It's so widely (and deservedly) praised that
no one points out that the stylized boxing
scenes are utterly unrealistic.
3. Rocky (1976)
Director John Avildsen says Rocky's and
Adrian's skating scene resonates for him;
we like Sly brutalizing a side of beef.
4. Hoosiers (1988)
Hackman, Hopper, Hershey and hoops.
It doesn't get much more heavenly than that.
5. Body and Soul (1947)
Few movie lines are colder than the one
delivered by the gangster (Lloyd Gough)
as he studies a boxer with a blood clot:
6.The Hustler (1961)
The foreboding Twilight Zone ambience
of this pool film, with Jackie Gleason and
Paul Newman, is riveting.
7. Chariots of Fire (1981)
Who can forget Ian Holm, as coach Sam
Mussabini, punching his hand through his
hat after his student wins gold in the '24 Games?
8. Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962)
As the washed-up fighter trying to avoid
selling out as a pro wrestler,
Anthony Quinn gives an immortal performance.
9. Slap Shot (1977)
The tableau of the Hanson Brothers --
dried blood, broken glasses, blank expressions
-- standing at rapt attention for the
national anthem is priceless.
10. Jerry Maguire (1996)
Can a movie about an agent be a sports
movie? Hey, check out the sports pages.
What's more, Cameron Crowe's script
is brilliant -- moving and real.
11. Bang the Drum Slowly (1973)
The film is so powerful that we barely
care that Robert De Niro doesn't swing
the bat like a major leaguer, even a dying one.
12. The Natural (1984)
The movie has a timeless aspect that,
sentimentality aside, makes it watchable
again and again.
13. The Bad News Bears (1976)
The lovable underdogs sponsored by
Chico's Bail Bonds.
14. North Dallas Forty (1979)
A teammate tells a receiver (Nick Nolte)
he has too much respect for his body
to do drugs. The receiver answers,
"You'll get past that."
15. Breaking Away (1979)
The Bloomington, Indiana, homeboys
(Dennis Christopher, Jackie Earle Haley
, Dennis Quaid and Daniel Stern) make
this biking movie click.
16. Field of Dreams (1989)
Was Burt Lancaster ever in any film he
didn't make a hundred times better?
17. Fat City (1972)
An ex-fighter (Stacy Keach) to his protégé
(Jeff Bridges): "Before you get rolling,
your life makes a beeline for the drain"
18. Damn Yankees (1958)
A baseball team singing You Gotta Have
Heart? Ridiculous but irresistible.
19. The Harder They Fall (1956)
The film ends with Humphrey Bogart once
again seeing someone off at the airport,
but it ain't Ingrid Bergman.
20. The Set Up (1949)
There's an exquisite Playhouse 90 tautness
to this boxing drama, which was directed
by Robert Wise.
