MUSIC NEWS: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2016 DRAKE NIGHT - RAPTORS Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors is not above a little trash talk for Drake. Wednesday was Drake Night at the Toronto Raptors, but the Warriors beat the Raptors 127-121. Green says he liked Drake's shirt that showed E-S-P-N's Doris Burke with the words, ``Woman Crush Everyday,'' but he was ``a little disappointed in his outfit overall.'' He says, ``You've got to bring better boots than that.'' Drake, meanwhile, told E-S-P-N Burke is welcome to dinner at his house anytime as long as she comes alone. Burke has tweeted, ``Drake, dinner is on.'' The Warriors' Kevin Durant, meanwhile, has no love for Drake. Durant was doing a T-V interview when Drake bumped into him, and Durant gave him a death stare. He told the interviewer he didn't care about ``Drake night'' and stormed off. --- AMAS - PREVIEW American…

MUSIC NEWS: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2016 OBIT - Doug Edwards Tributes are coming in for Canadian guitarist Doug Edwards, the former Skylark band member who died in Vancouver at age 70 after a battle with cancer. A former bandmate of David Foster, and later a bassist for Vancouver-based rockers Chilliwack, his friends say Edwards was a quiet but incredibly capable musician. Foster says he was, always has been and probably always will be the best pop musician Victoria has ever produced. Edwards's career jumpstarted as a session musician with the 5th Dimension in the 1960s, which led to T-V appearances on the ``The Ed Sullivan Show'' and an opening gig for Frank Sinatra and the Harry James Orchestra in Las Vegas. --- BOB DYLAN - NOBEL PRIZE CEREMONY Bob Dylan is skipping the Nobel Prize ceremony. The Swedish Academy says Dylan told them in a personal letter he wishes he…

MUSIC NEWS: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016 HOLLY DUNN DIES Holly Dunn believed she had God and her own talent to thank for her career. Dunn said in a 1990 Associated Press interview her early success was due to ``divine guidance.'' However, she said she also was one of the few female country singers who wrote, produced and sang her own material. Her hits included ``Daddy's Hands,'' ''Are You Ever Gonna Love Me`` and ''You Really Had Me Going.`` Dunn's career took a turn when her 1991 song, ''Maybe I Mean Yes,`` was criticized for sounding like a date rape song. Dunn continued to record and tour. She was a radio host in Detroit and a host of The Nashville Network's ''Opry Backstage.`` She retired from music in 2003 to concentrate on painting. Dunn died Monday in Albuquerque, New Mexico, after a battle with ovarian cancer. She was 59. --- SKYLARK…
