Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones Are Teaming Up to Make a Covers Album Easy Holiday Present For Your Parents

It's anybody's guess what kind of performance Willie Nelson will give during his extended stay in the Bay Area this week. In recent years, Nelson has embraced the same sort of crazily ornate arrangements that he rejected decades ago, back…
