Book U2 frontman Bono for the Grammy Awards and perhaps only a Beatle or a Rolling Stone could upstage him. At the Oscars, however, the rock 'n' roll humanitarian had nothing on a Disney princess. Idina Menzel stole the Dolby Theatre stage Sunday with "Let It Go," the diva belter from Disney's smash "Frozen," which would go on to win the Oscar a few minutes later for original song. "To our fellow nominees, you are all rock stars - literally," said Kristen Anderson-Lopez as she accepted the Oscar with her husband, Robert Lopez.

Jimmy O'Neill, an Oklahoman barely out of his teens when he became Los Angeles' top-rated radio deejay and only 24 when he catapulted to national celebrity as the host of "Shindig!," one of the earliest rock 'n' roll shows on prime-time television, died Friday at his West Hollywood home. He was 73. He had diabetes and heart problems, said his son, James O'Neill. In 1959, O'Neill made radio history as the first voice heard on KRLA-AM (1110) when it dropped its country-western format for rock music.

Rosemary Clooney couldn't have chosen a more appropriate song to close the fourth annual Singers' Salute to the Songwriter on Tuesday night--Jerome Kern's "Look for the Silver Lining." It was in an effort to do something constructive after her sister Betty's death of a brain injury 11 years ago that Clooney came up with the idea of the salute. This year's event at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion raised nearly $500,000 for the Betty Clooney Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury and its offspring, the Betty Clooney Center in Long Beach.
