BOBBY WOMACK the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and personally infamous  gospel-soul singer-songwriter discovered by Sam Cooke, died Friday. He was 70.  One of his early songs, "It's All Over Now," was a number one hit for the Rolling Stones, who swiftly paid tribute to Womack on Twitter.  He also has a credit on Wilson Pickett's "I'm a Midnight Mover" and Janis Joplin's "Trust Me," among others. Womack's solo career also produced gems like "Across 110th Street," from the blaxploitation film of the same name, and later featured in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown... and in American Gangster.  In 2012, Womack talked to All Things Considered about his health and career, as well as Bravest Man in the Universe, a seemingly unlikely collaboration with Blur's Damon Albarn.  At The Observer, rock journalist Barney Hoskyns recalls being on the road with the R&B star.

BRAID advance streams No Coast.

COLD BEAT advance streams Over Me.

AGAINST ME! stopped by World Cafe for a chat and mini-set. 

HAMILTON LEITHAUSER stopped by WFUV's Studio A to perform some of his new songs and to talk about the inspiration for the new album.

THE POLICE: "Next To You," an early Pate staple, opened last year's roadtrip mix for the Pate reunion.

ERIC CLAPTON tells Uncut he's looking at retiring from touring, as he finds the travel unbearable and does not want to embarrass himself.

PARQUET COURTS  are following a long tradition by rejecting major labels and embracing the energy and DIY ethos of punk. But why skip social media?

JENNY LEWIS talks about her latest album and makes embarrassing confessions at Flavorwire.

GREATEST HATES: Bands who can't stand their most famous songs.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Transformers: Age of Extinction easily tops the chart with 100 million, just about as projected. Critics hate Michael bay movies; audiences love them.  Even more impressive is the 200 million in overseas receipts (0 million in China alone), as the release of this fourth installment of the franchise is being staggered to avoid competing with the World Cup. 22 Jump Street could be called a distant second with 15.4 million, but a 44 percent drop is not bad at this point and this sequel has already beaten the domestic theatrical run of the original with almost 140 million total so far. How To Train Your Dragon 2 shows with13.1 million on a 47 percent drop and is now seriously lagging the original in America, but at least has crossed the 200 million mark in total receipts.  Think Like A Man Too, last weekend's champ, slides to the fourth slot with 10.4 million on a 64 percent drop, which would be bad news if it hadn't already earned twice its production budget.  Maleficent rounds out the Top 5 with 8.2 million on the summer's leggiest run to date and now seems likely to profit based on 585 million in global receipts.

AMY ADAMS gave up a first class seat to an American soldier, but it wasn't to garner attention.

SHIA LaBEOUF argued with a homeless guy on the streets of New York -- over a hat -- a few hours before his arrest.

THE VIEW has fired everyone except Whoopi Goldberg

ANGEL HAZE has been amused by the way the media has addressed her relationship with Ireland Baldwin.

SHARON STONE denied romancing Antonio Banderas after her friend Melanie Griffith filed for divorce.

MESHACH TAYLOR (Designing Women) died Saturday night ... after a long battle with cancer. He was 67.

PAKISTAN: A young newlywed couple in northeastern Pakistan died a horrible death at the hands of the bride's family in the latest honor killing in the nation, police in Pakistan said Saturday.

SYRIA: A day after the Al Nusrah Front's emir for Albu Kamal in Deir Izzour issued a statement explaining that he was relinquishing the town to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham to avoid jihadist bloodshed, other Al Nusrah fighters and allied Islamist fighters captured two ISIS positions in the strategic border town.

IRAQ; After the United States delayed a sale of fighter jets to Iraq, Russia sold planes to the Iraqi government. Now they've sent military experts to Baghdad. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham announced the formation of the Caliphate, changed its name to the Islamic State, and named Abu Bakr al Baghdadi as Caliph Ibrahim. The Iraqi military is reported to have withdrawn most of its ground forces from Tikrit after entering the city just one day ago. Heavy fighting has been reported in and around Tikrit.

MAN vs MOOSE: Who You Got?

SUPER-CHICKEN: The research is part of a 30 million, five-year USDA program to find ways to prevent livestock from either under-producing or keeling over prematurely as the world warms and temperatures spike. It's a long way from the vintage cartoon.

PABLO ESCOBAR's HIPPOS have been taking over the countryside near his former ranch in Colombia.

MONSTER RATS the size of cows? Be skeptical.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with MICHAEL JACKSON! I'm not making a habit of this, but he did die 5 years ago this week, making it an apt moment to revisit his hits with the Jackson 5, like  "I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save" and "Never Can Say Goodbye," and solo hits like "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," and "Billie Jean," which not only broke the color barrier at MTV, but also ushered in an era of big-budget videos that may have peaked with the John Landis-directed "Thriller," the title track of the mega-seller that also spawned smashes like "Beat It."

NOW SHOWING:  Transformers: Age of Extinction is this weekend's sole wide release, currently scoring 15 percent on the ol' Tomatometer.

ROB KARDASHIAN'S  family wants Rob to get help for what they say is a very bad drug problem ... sources directly connected with the family tell TMZ.

SHIA LaBEOUF was escorted out of Roundabout's production of Cabaret at Studio 54 during the show's intermission in handcuffs. At least he's not in the new Transformers pic.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: Vanity Fair has outtakes from her interview with the mag.

ZOE SALDANA: Pregnancy rumors.

UKRAINE is entering into a trade agreement with the European Union today that has already sparked a rebellion, toppled a president and ignited an armed conflict with pro-Russia separatists. As a shaky cease-fire in the east entered its final hours Thursday, thousands of Ukrainians in cars stuffed with belongings lined up at the border to cross into Russia, some vowing never to return.

VENEZUELA: Already grappling with street protests led by the right, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is facing a new threat from an unlikely place: old-school leftists who accuse him of betraying the socialist legacy that carried him to power.

IRAQ has bought used fighter jets from Russia and Belarus to battle Islamist militants after long delays in the delivery of F-16 planes from the U.S. left troops without air support.
