He is the King of Rock and Soul, Mr. Solomon Burke, and he's just released his latest CD, "Nothing's Impossible." We'll talk to Solomon about recording the new album with legendary producer Willie Mitchell, who weeks after wrapping up the sessions, passed away of heart failure. Burke had a great string of R&B hits in the mid-60's, but is probably best remembered for his song "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," covered by both the Rolling Stones and the Blues Brothers. Burke won a Grammy for Best Blues Album for "Don't Give Up On Me" in 2002. He also starred with Dennis Quaid in the movie "The Big Easy." Also on the program is Robert Rodriguez, the author of "Fab Four FAQ 2.0" a great new book about the solo years of the Beatles.
