Notebook

By Rich Heldenfels Published: August 8, 2014

Those of you who have fond memories of drive-in movies may find this story of interest. I recently chatted with April Wright, who made a documentary about drive-ins; it's showiing in Cleveland tonight.

I also have some brief entertainment notes here and my latest addition to writing about LeBron James here.

 

Nerve.com has a list of the best songs by musicians about other musicians. There is some good stuff on the list -- Neil Young's shout-out to Johnny Rotten, for instance -- but what really struck me was how much it was aimed at a young audience. Old guy that I am, I would have given more consideration to Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis," Van Morrison's "Cleaning Windows" (above; love the nod to Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee) and Frank Sinatra's live version of "Mack the Knife," where he gives props to Bobby Darin and other singers of the tune.
