Aretha Franklin takes on divas, comes out swinging
Aretha Franklin sings the sound of America like nobody else alive — a point of unceasing pride for Detroit, the place she was raised and remains near today.

The answer is she doesn’t need to do anything, but a dive into the realm of other divas is a solid move.

full story »The ‘Last Madman of Rock ’N’ Roll’ finally restsI am positive the image of Paul Revere (actually, his real name was Paul Revere Dick) that came into the minds of those who knew him, when they learned of his death, was one with a huge smile.
