Calendar* Correction: George Duke's place of death

 (Note:  'The Washington Post', 'Billboard', "USA Today', and 'The Boston Herald' all say Duke died in Los Angeles., while the newspaper 'The New York Daily News' and 'Spin' magazine correctly said George died in Santa Monica.  The discrepancy appears to be that the record label said he died in Los Angeles, and Duke's manager said he died in Santa Monica.  The latter is correct--Saint John's hospital is in Santa Monica.)

2013:  George Duke, the visionary Grammy-Award winning artist who blended rock with jazz, R&B and funk, died of chronic lymphocytic leukemia in Santa Monica, California at the age of 67.  Duke teamed with Stanley Clarke for the song "Sweet Baby" and also played keyboardist and trombone for artists such as Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, Regina Belle and Sheila E.
