"Makes Sense To Me" News Story Of The Day

Man shoots friend in argument over height of late soul singer James Brown

Jan 11 10:29 AM US/Eastern

ATMORE, Ala. (AP) - A man shot a friend when the two got into an argument over James Brown's height, police said.
Dan Gulley Jr. was charged with assault in the shooting of David James Brooks Jr., police said. Officers said the men were at a friend's home on Monday when, according to witnesses, the argument over the height of the late "Godfather of Soul" escalated, with Gulley, 70, shooting Brooks, 62, twice in the abdomen.

Brooks went to his car, got a gun and shot at Gulley but missed, then went to the police station, officers said.

Gulley also went to the station and told police he had shot Brooks. He remained in the Escambia County Jail on Wednesday.

Brooks was taken to a hospital, but information on his condition was not available.

The Mobile, Ala., Press-Register newspaper said officers did not believe alcohol was a factor in the argument.

Brown, who was known to wear lifts, died of heart failure Dec. 25 at age 73. Accounts of his height vary.

MORRISSEY, famed for penning some of British pop music's most melancholy songs, is being lined up to represent Britain in the Eurovision song contest, usually seen as a celebration of all things kitsch and trite.

The former lead singer of The Smiths, whose hits include That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore and Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, revealed he wanted to take part after Britain's disappointing performance last year.

"Morrissey expressed an interest way back last year in writing for the contest and since then we have been in talks with him," a BBC spokeswoman said today.

She said no decision had yet been made and there were also discussions with other artists taking place. It was also unclear whether Morrissey would perform or merely write the song.

Britain's entry last year, rapper Daz Sampson, came only 19th out of 24 countries, faring slightly better than Jemini's 2003 offering which failed to win a single vote.

Finnish rockers Lordi, attired in monster-themed costumes, were the surprise winners with Hard Rock Hallelujah, watched by an estimated 100 million viewers across Europe.

The contest that launched the careers of ABBA and Celine Dion is regarded in Britain as something of a joke, because it traditionally attracted entrants with strange hairstyles and over-the-top outfits, singing cheesy songs with catchy choruses.

It would seem an unlikely platform for Morrissey whose angst-ridden lyrics won The Smiths an army of fans during the 1980s.
