PHIL RAMONE, the innovative producer of music by the likes of Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, Elton John, B.B. King, Madonna, Paul McCartney, George Michael, Luciano Pavarotti, Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart and Liza Minnelli, to name just a few, has died. That Phil Ramone was a musical force in the recording studio is undeniable, and the evidence lies in the range of his accomplishments. For example, within one three-year period in the early 1960s, Ramone mixed Lesley Gore's smash hit "It's My Party," recorded Marilyn Monroe seducing President John F. Kennedy in song on his birthday and engineered essential double-quartet recordings by jazz innovators Ornette Coleman and Eric Dolphy.

ROBERT ZILDJIAN, cymbal mastermind and founder of musical cymbal manufacturer Sabian Inc., has died. He was 89 years old.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:G.I. Joe Retaliation tops the chart with 41 million (and 51 million including Thursday) -- slightly less less than the 54 million debut of the 1st Joe flick, but maybe not terrible for a movie dumped on Easter weekend, depending on overseas receipts.  The Croods place with 26.5 million a 39 percent drop which is not too bad for Easter weekend. Tyler Perry's Temptation showed with 22.3 million -- about how his films tend to open -- so he's presumably going to make a pile of cash by keeping his budget low.  Olympus Has Fallen 54 percent to the fourth slot with 14 million, a victim of G.I. Joe -- but this should still break even domestically and profit overseas.  Oz the Great and Powerful rounds out the Top Five with another 11.6 million; over all, this will be a solid money-maker, but not a smash.  Below the fold, The Host debuts in sixth place with 11 million, which may result in a breakeven... but Stephanie Meyer fails to find a second Twilight.

WHY IS THIS SATURDAY DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER DAYS?  Because ABC has its annual showing of The Ten Commandments, a grand spectacle featuring acting from Edward G. Robinson and Anne Baxter that is so over-the-top that Yul Brenner starts to look good by comparison.  And while Robinson's Dathan never actually spoke the line "Where's your Messiah now?" in the movie, it  -- like "Play It Again, Sam" (not spoken in Casablanca) -- has become part of a part of our culture. The line actually comes from Billy Crystal, originally a bit from the Oscars, iirc. It later turned up o­n The Simpsons, with Chief Wiggum playing Dathan to Ned Flanders' Moses.
