RAY THOMAS, a founding member of the British rock group the Moody Blues, died on Thursday at his home in Surrey, south of London, months before the band is to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He was 76.  He wrote songs like “Legend of a Mind” and palyed the flute solo on the classic “Nights in White Satin.

FATHER JOHN MISTY plays Austin City Limits.

ST VINCENT: Annie Clark plays World Cafe unplugged.

ANDERSON EAST advance streams Encore.

SCOTT McCAUGHEY, of The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows, R.E.M.’s touring band and more, got an alt-star benefit concert for his medical bills following a recent stroke.  Members of REM, Sleater-Kinney, The Decemberists, The Shins and more joined in.  Brooklyn Vegan and Stereogum have overlapping, but differing selections of video.

LANA DEL REY is being sued by Radiohead for allegedly plagiarizing "Creep."  Reminder: Radiohead ended up crediting The Hollies members Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood on "Creep" because of similarities to "The Air That I Breathe."

DAVID BOWIE: Ten things to learn from The Last Five Years.

AC/DC: Beyond The Hits.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle topped the chart with 36MM on a leggy 28 percent drop and may reach 300MM domestic.  Insidious: The Last Key placed close behind with 29.3MM, a bit surprising given the five-year gap since the prior, underperforming installment.  The Last Jedi showed, dropping out of the top spot a week or two earlier than people may have expected, with 23.6MM on a 55 percent drop.  The Greatest Showman held on to the fourth spot with 13.8MM on a mere 11 percent drop and worldwide grosses that look like this thing will at least break even. Pitch Perfect 3 rounded out the Top Five with 10.2MM on a 39 percent drop; I keep going back and forth on whether trhat's good enough to warrant a fouth.
