ROY HORN of SIEGFRIED & ROY passed away on Friday, of complications from the coronavirus.  He was 75. Roy tested positive last month . . . and at the time, his rep said that he was “responding well to treatment.”  But clearly, his condition took a turn for the worse. If you forget which was which, Roy was the one with the darker hair. Of course, Roy battled some significant health issues after BARELY surviving a WHITE TIGER ATTACK in 2003.  During one of their shows, a seven-year-old tiger named Montecore bit into Roy’s neck and carried him offstage. That put an immediate end to their Vegas run, which had been a staple at the Mirage for 13-plus years. This is Roy talking about surviving it

Rock ‘n’ roll legend LITTLE RICHARD died of bone cancer on Saturday.  He was 87. His agent said that he last spoke to him two or three weeks ago, but they didn’t really talk about his health.  Quote, “He’d just say ‘I’m not well.’   His biggest hits included “Tutti Frutti“, “Long Tall Sally“, and “Good Golly, Miss Molly“. His career lasted well over 50 years . . . although he took a few breaks for health and religious reasons.  He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, and he continued performing until 2016. In April of 2016, his friend BOOTSY COLLINS said Richard was, quote, “not in the best of health,” and needed “all the Funkateers to lift him up.” But Richard DENIED that anything was wrong.  He said, quote, “Not only is my family not gathering around me because I’m ill, but I’m still singing.  I don’t perform like I used to, but I have my singing voice, I walk around, I had hip surgery a while ago but I’m healthy.”

Andre Harrell, founder of Uptown Records, has passed away from heart failure at the age of 59. He worked under Russell Simmons at DefJam before striking out on his own with Uptown Records in 1986. Harrell’s label launched many stars, including a teenage Mary J. Blige, Heavy D & the Boyz, Jodeci, Al B. Sure and Guy featuring Teddy Riley. Diddy worked for him at Uptown before leaving to start his own label, but the two patched things up and before his death, Harrell was working as vice-chairman of Diddy’s REVOLT network. He also served a short stint as CEO of Motown Records.

Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell’s ex-fiancée obtained a restraining order against him. He must stop contacting Esther Campbell and stay at least 200 yards away from after she claimed in legal documents that he recently stole and destroyed her phone, as well as stole her car keys in order to leave her vehicle’s windows open during a rainstorm. She also alleges that he hasn’t been taking his medication for bipolar disorder and that he’s been “vindictive, angry, vile and mean.”

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl says a new record from the nand is coming and if you hear a little David Bowie flavor on the record youre right.  The upcoming album will be the band’s first release since 2017’s Concrete and Gold. 

During a Thursday call with investors, the Live Nation CEO (Michael Rapino) said he didn’t expect “full scale” concerts to start until 2021. Over the next six months, Live Nation will resume concerts in a scaled-down way. There may be indoor shows with no fans or reduced capacity admission. Drive-in concerts could also be an option. High-profile artists who usually play arenas or stadiums could play clubs or theaters for high prices. “We think in the fall, if there are no second hotspots, you’ll see markets around the world [reopening]… And then our goal is really to be on sale in the third and fourth quarters for 2021 at full scale,” Rapino said. As of right now people are excited to get back to concerts and there’s only a refund rate of about five to ten percent, said Rapino. “We’re just going to [watch] the science and see when we can back out there on a safe manner,” Rapino added. 

Bob Dylan announced Thursday that he will be releasing a new album of original songs next month. According to Pitchfork, Rough and Rowdy Ways will be Dylan’s first album featuring original material in eight years.

“Saturday Night Live” ended its season with another “at home” episode this weekend . . . and it included a fake PSA called “Let Kids Drink,” which made a case for letting kids drink alcohol while in quarantine. It was a joke . . . obviously . . . but some people on social media thought it went too far.  The whole thing was set to a song, and it did feature kids holding fake alcoholic drinks and joining in on the singing . . . but still, this is “SNL”.nIn response to the “debate” online, one person Tweeted, quote, “There are two types of people in the world.  The ones who think Let Kids Drink was freaking hysterical and the ones that have no sense of humor.”

Joe Exotic’s legal team has created a slick new video that asks President Trump to pardon him for hiring a hitman to kill Carole Baskin. TMZ reports that the video lays out a case claiming that the Tiger King star was framed. The video was made in Fort Worth, Texas, where Joe (real name: Joseph Maldonado-Passage) is currently behind bars in federal prison. The footage features splashy scenes of not just Joe himself, but also tigers (duh), motorcycles and the Exotic team’s tour bus, which is emblazoned with the message “President Trump Please Pardon Joe Exotic.” The documentary star’s colorful “lead investigator and investigative manager,” Eric Love, also figures prominently in the video.

An online meme recently made it look like “The Simpsons” predicted the coronavirus in 1993, but it wasn’t really true. The image was doctored, and the episode was about a made-up illness called the “Osaka flu.”  But people are bringing it up again, because of the MURDER HORNETS story that made headlines last week. In the same episode, there’s a scene where people who are worried about the virus suddenly get attacked by KILLER BEES. The show’s also gotten other stuff right.  Like in 1998, they said Disney would buy 20th Century Fox more than two decades before it happened in real life.    Some of their predictions HAVEN’T come true though . . . at least not yet.  TheWrap.com put together a list.  Here are 10 more predictions that may or may not pan out . . .

1.  Hover cars.  In 2005, they predicted we’d have them by the year 2017.

2.  Virtual food.  An episode 20 years ago showed Homer and Marge using headsets and tubes to eat fake food in the year 2030.

3.  Colonizing Mars.  An episode in 2016 said we’d have a mission by 2026, and colonize the planet by 2051.

4.  Hologram mail.  There’s an old episode where future Bart gets a message in the form of a hologram instead of a letter.

5.  President Ivanka Trump.  An episode a few years ago said she’d run for president in 2028.

6.  President Arnold Schwarzenegger.  “The Simpsons Movie” predicted he’d be president, even though he wasn’t born in the U.S.

7.  The media becomes even more corporate.  In 1995, they predicted that CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC would all merge into one giant news conglomerate.

8.  Killer robots.  There’s a 1994 episode where they visit “Itchy and Scratchy Land,” and the robots that run the park start murdering people.

9.  Big Ben goes digital.  A 1995 episode showed Big Ben in London in the year 2010.  And the building had a digital clock instead of hands.

10.  Bigfoot is real.  There’s an episode from 2002 where Bart spots him while getting off a bus in Canada.

Hank Azaria has been doing character voices on “The Simpsons” for 32 years.  He was a guest with Conan last night and was asked what voices are the toughest on his vocal cords. And what voice is his favorite to do

Tyra Banks took to Twitter on Friday to acknowledge some old clips of her as a judge on America’s Next Top Model that recently re-surfaced have not aged well.. One of the videos showed Banks yelling at 2006 winner Dani Evans because of the gap in her front teeth. In another, Banks argued with contestant Tiffany Richardson, who tried to appear stoic and joke around after being eliminated. If you didn’t already hate the Kardashians, here’s some more fuel for that fire . . .Over the weekend, KHLOE KARDASHIAN thought it would be fun to WASTE the one thing stores have been running out of . . . by TOILET PAPERING her sister’s house. She stayed the night at Kourtney’s place, and teamed up with Kourtney’s 10-year-old son Mason to TP all the trees and bushes out front. Kourtney posted a video the next morning on Instagram, calling the prank “genius.”  Twitter disagreed.  A bunch of people online called them out for being TONE DEAF when so many people haven’t been able to find toilet paper and other essentials. Their mom KRIS JENNER also posted a photo later on, and vowed to help Kourtney “seek revenge.”

While no plans have been finalized, Major League Baseball is working toward finishing up its proposal to the players’ union for when to start the 2020 season. The proposal will be discussed by team owners on Monday and presented to the players’ union on Tuesday. There are several key components of the league’s proposal regarding the length of the season, scheduling, playoff format and host cities. The regular season would begin in early July and consist of approximately 80 games. Teams would play regionalized schedules, only facing other teams in their own division, or the corresponding division in the other league. For example, American League West teams would only face other AL West teams and National League West teams. MLB will also propose to use the designated hitter in both the AL and the NL. Games would be played in as many home cities as possible. Teams that are not able to play at home would have to relocate, either to their spring training sites or other major-league parks in different cities. A second “spring” training would take place either in teams’ home parks, or in Arizona or Florida. Games will be played without fans, at least initially.

Earlier this spring, Major League Baseball agreed to partake in a vast and unique study on the viability of COVID-19 antibody testing, and on Sunday the league reportedly received preliminary test results.  60 of the 5,754 subjects tested showed the presence of COVID-19 antibodies. After adjusting to reflect testing accuracy, that comes to a positive test rate of 0.7 percent. That’s a lower figure than other notable antibody test studies have yielded. 70% of those who tested positive were asymptomatic — i.e., they presented no symptoms of having COVID-19. The tests were conducted in the middle of April. The goal of the study was to determine the extent of the coronavirus pandemic in large metro areas. Unlike the current COVID-19 test that must be performed by healthcare professionals, the antibody test used in the MLB study can be administered at home and yield results within minutes.

As the NBA continues to try and get through issues that stand in the way of resuming the 2019-20 season, one thing is certain: Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant will not play. ESPN is reporting that Durant would be held out for the entire year, regardless of when the season restarts or how many games are played. Durant tore his right Achilles tendon during the 2019 NBA Finals. In April, Durant’s manager said it was unlikely that he would return for the stretch run of the season.

Zion Williamson’s ongoing lawsuit with his former agent now has possible implications for Duke University. Court documents released on Sunday shows Prime Sports Marketing president Gina Ford has served Williamson with requests for admission over several potential NCAA-related issues. Each of Ford’s 11 claims, relate to Williamson’s knowledge that his mother, Sharonda Sampson, and stepfather, Lee Anderson, received and/or demanded money and benefits to influence where he would play college basketball. Ford claims his family received such benefits from Duke, Nike and Adidas. Neither Duke nor the NCAA has acknowledged Ford’s claims as of the time of this writing.

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer’s interview with ESPN could not have been more frustrating. That’s not because of anything he said, or did, but because of an unfortunate incident where his phone number appeared on national television. The incident happened early Sunday morning while Bauer was interviewed via FaceTime during the broadcast of a Korean Baseball Organization game. While it was only briefly shown, it was up long enough for those early birds to take note and blast it out to the world.  

Bauer took this in good spirits and even ended up trying to spin this moment into a bit of fun for people who follow him on Twitter. He’s now giving away a signed baseball and a pair of signed cleats, with the instructions for the giveaway on the voicemail of that number. However, don’t get your hopes up, apparently the number is no longer active.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has put his Super Bowl LI championship ring up for bid to benefit the All In Challenge, which aims to be the largest digital fundraiser in history by raising tens of millions of dollars to feed those in need. The winner will also receive a personal visit with Kraft in his Gillette Stadium office, with the team sending its private plane to bring to town the new owner of the ring if he or she is not within driving distance. Kraft said this: “What could I do that would be special? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks. I finally thought about our experience in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons. We were down 28-3 [in the third quarter] and had 99.6% [odds] to lose. And we came back, and we won. And I thought about what is going on at this time and wanted to give something of extreme value in support of our health care workers. So I thought it would be good to give this ring, our fifth Super Bowl win, because it showed how we came back.”

The main card of UFC 249 was pretty stacked and delivered despite there being no one in attendance for the event in Jacksonville.  It started with former NFLer Greg Hardy getting the win.  Then Calvin Kattar picked up a knockout victory.  Henry Cejudo (SuhHooDoe)got the controversial TKO win after a stoppage.  Cejudo then immediately retired.  And the main event showed Justin Gaethje (GayGee) defeat Tony Ferguson by TKO. 

Mary Pratt, a member of the original 1943 Rockford Peaches of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, has died. Her death was confirmed on Wednesday by her nephew. Pratt was a lefty pitcher for the Peaches. Pratt was a graduate of Boston University with a degree in physical education and she had a 40-plus year teaching career. She also spent time officiating basketball, softball, field hockey and lacrosse games. The Rockford Peaches were one of the four original teams in the AAGPBL’s 11-year existence, playing from 1943 through 1954. Rockford was one of the teams featured in the 1992 film “A League of Their Own.”  She was 101 years old.
