- Singer-songwriter Phoebe Snow , who was nominated for a best new artist award at the 1975 Grammys, passed away at the age of 60 due to complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in 2010. She was best known for her 1975 hit “Poetry Man.”

- The Lollapalooza lineup is out and it’s got a handful of big names, if none too exciting. Eminem, Foo Fighters, Muse, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket ... yep, that’s a festival. A hundred or so other bands are playing the Aug. 6-8 mega-festival in Chicago, including Big Audio Dynamite, Ellie Goulding, Wye Oak, Ryan Leslie, the Kills and many more.
