Lithuanian mayor invites Bono to visit shopping mall

A mayor in northeastern Lithuania has invited U2 frontman Bono to visit the shopping mall in Lithuania that he allegedly owns part of due to low-tax Malta investments whose documents were recently leaked.

Utena mayor Alvydas Katinas says he has written to the Irish rocker to see the Ausra shopping center, which sits 95 kilometers (59 miles) north of Vilnius, the capital.

Katinas said Thursday that Bono, who has never visited Lithuania before, also could help make the Lithuanian town better known to the world.

He said he also wanted to congratulate Bono for winning the Global Icon Award that U2 received Sunday at the MTV Europe Music Awards in London.

The so-called Paradise Papers leaks have detailed widespread tax dodging by multinationals and wealthy individuals.

The wife of Walter Becker says the Steely Dan guitarist died while being treated for esophageal cancer.

Becker died at age 67 in September, but no details were revealed at the time.

Delia Becker says in a statement Wednesday that he "died in the course of being treated" for esophageal cancer. She added that the cancer "seemed to have come out of nowhere and had spread with terrifying speed."

Walter Becker was the guitarist, bassist and co-founder of Steely Dan. He had missed performances earlier in the summer in Los Angeles and New York.

Delia Becker says her husband died peacefully at their home in New York City.

Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

Rock singer Etheridge pleads guilty to possessing marijuana

Grammy-winning rock singer Melissa Etheridge has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possessing marijuana in North Dakota.

KMOT-TV reports an attorney for the California musician entered the plea on her behalf Tuesday. Under a proposed order, Etheridge would pay a fine of $750 and serve unsupervised probation.

Etheridge was arrested in August when investigators found marijuana on her tour bus as it crossed from Canada into the U.S. Etheridge, who is a cancer survivor, has said she believes in the medicinal applications of cannabis.

Etheridge's attorney, Thomas Dickson, says the musician has a legal permit allowing her to use medical marijuana in California. If Etheridge meets conditions of the proposed order over the next six months, the charge will be dismissed.

Linkin Park dedicating new live album to Chester Bennigton

Linkin Park is releasing a new live album that the band is dedicating to late member Chester Bennington.

The group says their last live shows before Bennington died in July were "extraordinary." The "One More Light Live" album will be released on Dec. 15.

The songs were performed on the One More Light World Tour, which kicked off in May in South America and Europe. The U.S. leg of the tour was canceled after Bennington hanged himself a day before the tour was to begin.

The band said with his voice, Bennington turned "pain into catharsis, authenticity into art, and passion into connection." For fans who have never been to a Linkin Park show, the band hopes the live album "gives you a glimpse into how magical these shows were."
