Chuck Berry Passes Away At Age 90
Chuck Berry, the inventor of rock and roll music, passed away this weekend at the age of 90 at his home in Missouri. Berry is known for writing many early rock and roll standards, including “Johnny B. Goode”, “Sweet Little Sixteen”, “No Particular Place to Go”, “Maybellene”, and “School Days.” Hundreds of artists have covered his songs. The Beatles famously covered “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Rock and Roll Music” early in their career. Berry made guitar soloing the norm for rock music. His sense of showmanship was uncanny, inventing the “duck walk.” Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, in which he was cited as having “laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance.” Berry played 70 to 100 shows a year through the 1980’s, showing up solo, making the venues provide his backup band. He continued performing nearly up to his death, touring Europe in 2008 and playing American festivals. He released 20 albums since he debuted on Chess Records in 1957. His music influenced countless rock acts, including the ones that are considered founding fathers of the genre themselves, like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, and Jimi Hendrix.

Pearl Jam Invites All Their Drummers To Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
After initially being snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, three Pearl Jam drummers, Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese, and Jack Irons have been invited by Pearl Jam to attend the honors with them. Only current drummer Matt Cameron and original drummer Dave Krusen were extended invitations by the Hall of Fame. Abbruzzese was with the band from 1991 to 1994, as they toured behind the album “Ten”, and played on the “VS” and “Vitalogy” albums. He certainly contributed to the band’s formative years. Irons was the band’s drummer for four years, time spent that the drummers, and now the other members in Pearl Jam, feel can’t be discounted. Speaking on the matter in an open letter on their Twitter account, Pearl Jam expressed their desire to “reunite with everyone who has been part of the group.” Though they may attend, and even go up and accept honors along with Pearl Jam, a representative for the Rock Hall told Rolling Stone Magazine that on Krusen and Cameron would be inducted.

Tim Allen Under Fire For Nazi Germany Joke
Tim Allen has been under fire after making a Nazi Germany comment on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Friday. When asked Kimmel about attending the President Trump inauguration this year, Allen replied that "You gotta be real careful ’round here...you get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened." Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, is one of the people to take issue, asking the comedian to apologize. Goldstein feels that the comparison "trivializes the horrors imposed on Jews in Nazi Germany."

Gonzaga Outlasts West Virginia
The Gonzaga Bulldogs outlasted the West Virginia Mountaineers last night in a tight game to advance to the next round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The Bulldogs held on against the high pressure West Virginia defense. The game was evenly matched throughout, staying within 3 or 4 points the entire game, with the strong defense of West Virginia keeping the high powered offense of Gonzaga in check. At halftime the game was tied at 30. West Virginia gained momentum late in the second half, but an errant whistle stopped play with 1:59 to go in the game when West Virginia’s Nathan Adrian appeared to step out of bounds. Replay clearly showed that Adrian’s foot was actually in bounds, and he made an excellent save giving West Virginia possession of the ball. What should have taken the officials thirty seconds to correct took six minutes and 47 seconds, an eternity in game time, effectively cooling both teams. To his credit, when asked if the long break snapped his team’s momentum, West Virginia coach Bob Huggins replied that he didn’t know, and no one could know. What was clear though, was that the Mountaineers had a horrific last 30 seconds of the game. Down by three with no timeouts, Mountaineer Jevon Carter, who was having an excellent game, missed two highly contested 3-pointers, dribbled off all the time on the clock, and passed the ball with only 2 seconds left. Carter, who led all scorers with 21, was triple-teamed at the three point line and failed to pass it off to Daxter Miles Jr. earlier, who appeared to be wide open for the final 14 seconds of the game. Miles got the ball in the last 2 seconds and had no time to frame any sort of proper shot. Gonzaga moves on to face Xavier in the next round.

USA Wins World Baseball Classic
The United States won its first World Baseball Classic last night, defeating Puerto Rico 8-0 at Dodger Stadium. Pitcher Marcus Stroman went six no-hit innings, leaving in the seventh to the crowd’s thunderous roar of "U-S-A" after dominating Puerto Rico’s hitters. The team advanced by defeating Japan and the Dominican Republic. The popularity of the World Baseball Classic reached fever pitch in Puerto Rico, with fans gathering to watch the games at bars and restaurants all over the island. The entire Puerto Rican team dyed their hair blonde, causing fans to do the same. Stores on the island ran out of hair dye. For USA, the victory, and the popularity of the event this year may place a new focus on the importance of the event for the country. Players in past years have turned down invitations to play on the team because they’d rather focus on preparing for their regular seasons. The tournament began in 2006 and is now played every four years. The United States is only the 3rd team to ever win, with Japan taking the first two championships, and the Dominican Republic winning in 2013.

Tom Brady Super Bowl Jersey Found
The missing Tom Brady Super Bowl 51 jersey has been located in Mexico, along with the jersey the New England Patriots quarterback wore in Super Bowl 49, which was never reported stolen. The jersey was discovered missing by Brady after he completed his post-game media obligations. It was found in the possession of Mauricio Ortega, the former director of the tabloid La Prensa. Ortega resigned March 14th, citing personal reasons. He had access to areas of NGR stadium via his media credentials, and it is alleged that he entered the locker room and removed the jersey from Brady’s bag. The FBI was involved since the crime involved a matter out of the country. It is rumored that other Super Bowl memorabilia may have also been discovered, including cleats and possibly a jersey or helmet that belongs to Von Miller from the Denver Broncos. No charges have been filed so far, as the FBI are in the process of authenticating the items.
