Alton Ellis, RIP
Reggae music pioneer Alton Ellis, known as the godfather of rocksteady, has died at the age of 70 in London, England.

Officials at Hammersmith Hospital announced Sunday morning that Ellis, who had cancer of the lymph glands, died peacefully Friday night after he had been hospitalized for several weeks.

Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde a rockabilly rebel ?
By Dean Goodman

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde is unleashing her inner cowgirl on the rock band's first new album in five years.

But her label does not want "Break Up the Concrete" (Shangri-La Music; October 7) to be described as a country effort because of negative connotations. Call it rockabilly, invoke comparisons with Bo Diddley or Sun Records, and luxuriate in the pedal steel guitar. Just don't say that she has gone Nashville.

In truth, Hynde has gone Akron: Akron, Ohio, the faded rust-belt city where she was born 57 years ago, and from which she fled to her adopted hometown of London  ... continue reading

Woman claims she has evidence proving she is Elvis' half sister
MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Mid-South woman claims she's Elvis Presley's half-sister and says she has the DNA to prove it.

The woman, Eliza A. Presley, recently filed a petition to reopen the estate of Elvis Presley's father. The petition states Eliza is the daughter of Vernon Elvis Presley, and therefore should have a share in his estate.

Donald Yates, Owner of DNA Testing Systems in Scottsdale, Arizona, said Tuesday that he has worked on the case for five years, and is "99.99 percent sure" that Eliza and Elvis are half-siblings.

"DNA doesn't lie," Yates said. "I think everyone will be satisfied in the end through the  ... continue reading

Eliza Presley's attorney said the DNA evidence is reliable.

"They've been tested in and retested by various labs and proof is conclusive," Eliza Presley's attorney Kathleen Caldwell said.

Cameras were not allowed  ... continue reading

Beloved entertainer Billy Ledbetter became fixture on local music scene
Appreciation by Nick Deriso • nderiso@thenewsstar.com • October 4, 2008

Billy Ledbetter never left the stage.
He never left home, either. Not in his heart.

Ledbetter, who died on Thursday, came of age in the 1960s performing at a sequence of now-legendary hotspots along Louisville Avenue. He then rode a wave of popularity after penning a hit rockabilly single all the way to the glittering canyons of Las Vegas.

But Ledbetter eventually returned to Monroe and, until the very end, he still could be found on local bandstands.

Asked, 10 years ago now, what kept him going, Ledbetter said, simply: "The sheer  ... continue reading
