PILOT IN AALIYAH TRAGEDY A CRACK HEAD? Reports says traces of cocaine and alcohol found in his system during autopsy

It is bad enough that the world had to lose the immensely talented Aaliyah last year, but the tragic situation may be rekindled in the minds of friends, family and fans in light of new information.  The pilot of the small plane that crashed in the Bahamas last year — killing the 22-year-old singer and actress, himself and seven others — had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his body, aviation officials said Tuesday.   An autopsy performed on Luis Antonio Morales Blanes' body revealed cocaine in his urine and traces of alcohol in his stomach, the Bahamas Department of Civil Aviation said in a statement.   Authorities are investigating how the substances might have affected the pilot at the time of the August crash. Morales, 30, was sentenced to three years probation on charges of crack cocaine possession 12 days before the crash.  The aviation department also said Tuesday the aircraft may not have undergone fuel-pump wiring modifications required in August 1988. Unidentified particles and corrosion found in the fuel filters were "indications that routine maintenance was not being performed," the statement said.

TRUTH HURTS' TRUTH UNCOVERED: "Addictive" sample not cleared

You can't handle the Truth! That's what Saregama India, Ltd., is telling new artist Truth Hurts. Apparently her hit song "Addictive," produced by DJ Quik, sampled from an Indian movie soundtrack put out by the company, without its permission. Uh oh!  The company's attorney, Diedra Davis, also said, the original singer is unlawfully used on the track.  The original track is called "Thoda Resham Lagta Hai" and appears in the movie "Jyoti." Dr. Dre executive produced the CD and has been contacted about the song.  Dre's camp, so far, has said that they didn't know how to find the owner of the track, according to attorney Davis.

 

REGGAE UPDATES FROM JAMAICA: DIANA KING FEATURED ON SOUNDTRACK TO NEW AUSTIN POWERS FLICK

Excerpt from www.eurweb.com:

With her new album "Back" due out on Maverick Records, Diana King will reach a wider audience, when the soundtrack album to the movie "Austin Powers in Goldmember" is released on July 16.   King teams with Soul Hooligan for a remake of Electric Light Orchestra's "Evil Woman."   Other well-known acts featured on the soundtrack include Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles, the Rolling Stones, Britney Spears, Angie Stone, Earth Wind and Fire, Smash Mouth, and former Bangles lead singer Susannah Hoffs.   Just in case you didn't know, this is the 4th soundtrack album that King has been featured on. Others include the soundtrack to "My Best Friend's Wedding" and "Bad Boys."

One of Jamaica's premiere female vocalists, Diana King got her start on the reggae scene in the late 1980s as a member of the cabaret/show outfit, the City Heat Band. She later toured with the likes of Shabba Ranks before embarking on a solo career. To date her biggest hits have included "Shy Guy," and remakes of "Say a Little Prayer" and "Ain't Nobody."

UPCOMING CONCERTS

LAURYN HILL – SUNDAY, JULY 28

Artist Lauryn Hill releases her first album of new music since 1998's Grammy-winning The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The latest album, a double CD/tape collection captures Hill's intimate twp-hour performance of new acoustic tunes, which originally premiered on MTV2 in March, 2002.

"I want to introduce you to me," said Lauryn Hill onstage during the taping for MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, which received a "three-and-a-half star" (out of four) review in USA Today (March 8, 2002). "The raw, two-hour set of all-new music finds the former Fugees star not only unplugged, but unadorned," wrote critic Steve Jones. "....it's just Hill and her guitar, singing about the lessons she has learned since she left the spotlight....she has chosen to step out with no safety net of dancers of a band....it gives her an opportunity to truly connect with her audience, experiment with song forms and vocal styles, and, most important, tell the truth as she sees it."   A founding member of the pioneering multi-platinum hip-hop trio the Fugees, Lauryn Hill found overwhelming success as a solo artist with her debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard the week of its release. Selling more than 12 million copies worldwide, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill achieved both popular and critical acclaim, earning her five Grammy Awards (including Album of the Year and Best New Artist), three American Music Awards, one Billboard Award, one Soul Train Award, and one MTV Video Music Award.

LENNY KRAVITZ – TUESDAY, JULY 30

Toronto fans can dig in to Lenny Kravitz's trademark brand of riveting rock 'n roll. Kravitz returns to the Molson Amphitheatre stage after three years, with the gritty popster Pink and alt-rock newcomers Abandoned Pools. Since his 1989 debut, Let Love Rule, Kravitz's song writing and production skills have been on an upswing. His second album, Mama Said, gave him a number two hit with "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over." Are You Gonna Go My Way (1993), Kravitz's third album, was a commercial success as was 1998's 5 -- . (we'll overlook 1995's flop Circus) Kravitz is somewhat of a chameleon, with the unquestionable ability to recreate the sound and feeling of countless groups from the past. His music recalls everyone from Lennon, Hendrix, and Bowie to Prince. But, Kravitz hasn't melded these influences into one distinctive style. The result: each song on each of his albums sounds like it was recorded by a different artist. With his ever-changing sound and style, one thing remains constant; Kravitz's music might not be original, but it is quite enjoyable.

MAXWELL – SATURDAY, AUGUST 3

Take one-part psycho-sexual funk of Prince and two-parts romance a la Marvin Gaye, and you've got Maxwell's tender alternative to the usual lyrical reports of sexual escapades.

Born in Brooklyn in 1973, Maxwell delved into music at the age of 17 when a friend gave him a battered Casio keyboard. He started to compose music and soon became a staple on the New York club circuit. Maxwell recorded his debut album in 1994, with accompaniment from guitarist Wah Wah Watson, saxophonist Stuart Matthewman, and songwriter Leon Ware -- who had previously collaborated on Gaye's thematic classic I Want You. Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite appeared in March 1996. Though the album wasn't successful upon its release, a second single, "Ascension (Never Wonder)," made the Top-40. Embrya followed in 1998, and Maxwell scored again with the hit "Fortunate" from the Life soundtrack.

EVENT PROFILE:  Artist Lauryn Hill releases her first album of new music since 1998's Grammy-winning The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The latest album, a double CD/tape collection captures Hill's intimate twp-hour performance of new acoustic tunes which originally premiered on MTV2 in March, 2002.

"I want to introduce you to me," said Lauryn Hill onstage during the taping for MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, which received a "three-and-a-half star" (out of four) review in USA Today (March 8, 2002). "The raw, two-hour set of all-new music finds the former Fugees star not only unplugged, but unadorned," wrote critic Steve Jones. "....it's just Hill and her guitar, singing about the lessons she has learned since she left the spotlight....she has chosen to step out with no safety net of dancers of a band....it gives her an opportunity to truly connect with her audience, experiment with song forms and vocal styles, and, most important, tell the truth as she sees it."   A founding member of the pioneering multi-platinum hip-hop trio the Fugees, Lauryn Hill found overwhelming success as a solo artist with her debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard the week of its release. Selling more than 12 million copies worldwide, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill achieved both popular and critical acclaim, earning her five Grammy Awards (including Album of the Year and Best New Artist), three American Music Awards, one Billboard Award, one Soul Train Award, and one MTV Video Music Award.
