JONI SLEDGE, one of four siblings who banded together to create the music group Sister Sledge, has died aged 60 of unknown causes.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Kong: Skull Island topped the chart with 61MM, which is well above tarcking estimates in the mid-40s, but probably below what it needed to ensure profits against a 185MM production budget and presumably big marketing costs; this is true even when considering it did another 81.6MM in foreign markets.  The gorilla's big problem is the number of blockbusters being released in this March.  Logan, the first of these, placed with 37.9MM on a 57 percent drop, but 438.3MM in global receipts already have this one well in black in its second weekend. Get Out shows with 21MM on a leggy 25 percent drop; the horror flick crossed the 100MM domestically against a mere 4.5MM budget before opening overseas next weekend.  The Shack takes the fourth slot with 10MM on a 38 percent drop that's probably good for a faith-based flick, many of which are front-loaded. The LEGO Batman Movie rounds out the Top Five with another 7.8MM on a 33 percent drop, reflecting the lack of competition from other family films.

...with ROCKPILE, a band that featured old pals Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds cranking out the rootsy pub rock. They seem to be lip-synching o­n "Teacher, Teacher" and "If Sugar Was As Sweet As You," but I had to post 'em 'cause it's Bandstand, which strikes me as just plain odd. This clip of "Heart," featuring Billy Bremner, is also odd at the start.  For actual live performances, here's the band rolling through Lowe's "They Called It Rock," and "So It Goes," plus a cover of Elvis Costello's and "Girls Talk," which many associate more with Edmunds.
