Performers set

The Grammys weekend is shaping up to be a Beatles weekend.

The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will perform at the Jan. 26 awards show in Los Angeles. The Beatles will be honored at the Academy’s Special Merits Awards the day before, and a day after the big show, the iconic group will be the center of a performance special featuring Eurythmics and other acts playing Beatles hits.

Other Grammy performers include Taylor Swift, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Robin Thicke and Katy Perry. Sara Bareilles will sing with Carole King, while Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers and Pharrell will perform together.

Kanye investigated

Beverly Hills police say they’re investigating Kanye West for misdemeanor battery after a man accused the rapper of attacking him.

Sgt. George DeMarois says several witnesses identified West as being involved in an altercation around 12:15 p.m. Monday at an office on exclusive Wilshire Boulevard. The rapper had left the premises by the time officers arrived.

West was charged last year with misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft after a fight with a photographer. He’s pleaded not guilty in the case.

No retirement

Music legend Chuck Berry says he has no plans to retire.

The 87-year-old rock ’n’ roll legend will make his 200th performance today at a Missouri night club where he’s been performing for nearly two decades. He says he hopes to make it another 200 shows.

He says he’s thankful for each day, has no plans to retire and will keep going “for as long as the big man upstairs allows.”
