DORIS DAY DIES

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Doris Day had requested no funeral, no memorial service and no grave marker. Day died after a bout of pneumonia yesterday at the age of 97. Her first hit was “Sentimental Journey” with Les Brown and his Band of Renown in 1945. She also had hits with “My Dreams Are Getting Better All The Time,” “Secret Love,” “A Guy is a Guy” and her signature hit, “Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera).” Her real name was Doris Marianne von Kappelhoff, but a bandleader changed it to Day after the song “Day After Day” so it would fit on a marquee. She never won a Grammy. Her son, Terry Melcher, became a songwriter and producer who worked with The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan, and was a member of The Rip Chords and Bruce And Terry.

MUSICIANS MOURN DORIS DAY

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Paul McCartney says going to Doris Day’s house was “like going to an animal sanctuary where her many dogs were taken care of in splendid style.” McCartney says in a statement Day had “a heart of gold and was a very funny lady.” Songwriter Diane Warren paid tribute to Day’s love of animals with a tweet full of animal emojis. She followed it up by saying, “Can U imagine all the animals waiting to greet Doris Day at the Rainbow Bridge?!” Melissa Etheridge tweets it’s really difficult to state what a huge influence Day was on her. Etheridge says Day “gave me hope a woman could be strong, funny and successful.” Day died yesterday at the age of 97.

KODAK BLACK RETURNS TO COURT TODAY

MIAMI (AP) _ Kodak Black is due in a Miami court again today to face a gun charge. Black is charged with making a false statement while trying to purchase a firearm. In court yesterday, his attorney, Bradford Cohen, says Black mistakenly failed to indicate he’s currently under indictment while filling out the form before purchasing a firearm from a licensed dealer. Black was arrested last month on drug and weapons charges as he crossed from Canada to the U.S. He’s also facing sexual assault charges in South Carolina. Black was arrested Saturday shortly before he was supposed to perform at the Rolling Loud festival. Police are investigating connections between the festival and several shootings. The Miami Herald reports the girlfriend of NBA Youngboy was injured, and Chicago rapper AAB Hellabandz was killed.

POLICE: NBA YOUNGBOY’S ENTOURAGE FIRED IN SELF-DEFENSE

MIAMI (AP) _ Police say security video from outside the Trump International Beach Resort Miami shows NBA YoungBoy and his entourage exiting when gunmen in a passing SUV opened fire Sunday. Police say legally armed members of NBA YoungBoy’s entourage returned fire. A police spokesman says one of their bullets killed a bystander, but they will not be charged because they were firing in self-defense. NBA Youngboy’s 19-year-old girlfriend was injured, and a 5-year-old bystander was grazed by a bullet. Four men were detained and released. NBA YoungBoy was on the lineup for the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami this past weekend. It’s the same festival where Kodak Black was arrested on a weapons charge on Saturday and where Lil Wayne refused to perform because he says he was required to go through a security check to enter the festival grounds.

COURT HEARING CONTINUES OVER WOODSTOCK 50

NEW YORK (AP) _ The fate of the Woodstock 50th anniversary concert will continue to be debated in a New York courtroom today after organizers and a former financial partner failed to come to a resolution yesterday. Investor Amplifi Live LLC says it’s canceling the concert over health and safety concerns. It says the organizers are incompetent, so it took control of the festival and called it off. The organizers are suing Amplifi Live, saying it’s not the investor’s call to cancel it. The organizers accuse Amplifi Live of plundering nearly $18 million in funds and privately telling artists to stay away. The concert is scheduled for Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York. The lineup includes Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Dead and Company, The Killers, Chance The Rapper and Imagine Dragons. The organizers say the musicians have already been paid more than $32 million.
