Producer: Hector Gonzalez

Director: Jimmy Velarde"

In 1994, Hector Gonzalez became the heir to the Eddie Davis Recording and Publishing Estate, The Rampart Record Group and The Faro Music Publishing Group (a division of Gordo Enterprises). He relinquished his position at CBS Television City to administer these companies and license a vast music catalog dating back to 1958 for CD compilations, film and television. Since 1960, Rampart Records has been devoted almost exclusively to the development of Mexican American Talent known on the West Coast as “The Eastside Sound.”

Eddie Davis was a child actor and successful restaurateur and is quoted as saying, “If anybody thinks I got rich over my East Los Angeles music, they’re wrong. I cooked a lot of hamburgers to make those records.” Rampart Records contributed to what is known as the Eastside Sound music and included such bands as Cannibal and the Headhunters, which opened for the Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1965. Multicultural bands such as the Mixtures, and the Blendells were given recording opportunities by Rampart Records included such bands as Cannibal and the Headhunters, which opened for the Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1965.

Surprise! Janet Jackson Is Already Married PDF Print E-mail

And you thought Jermaine changing his last name to “Jacksun” was the biggest Jackson family news of the past week?

In an exclusive statement to “Entertainment Tonight,” Janet Jackson confirmed that she’s already married to Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. A rep for the singer has confirmed the news to omg! as well.

"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true,” the statement began. “Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.

With love, Wissam and Janet"

Rumors that Jackson, 46, and Al Mana, 37, were planning a spring wedding started circulating in December. The couple has been romantically linked since 2010. It’s the third marriage for the “Rhythm Nation” singer, following her marriages to James DeBarge and Rene Elizondo Jr. (her marriage to the former was annulled). She was also in a long-term relationship with music producer Jermaine Dupri.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail and four years of probation for a drunken driving case.

City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan (mah-tell-JIN') says Brown was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to charges he was under the influence and driving on a suspended license when he was arrested in October.

Brown was on probation for another DUI case at the time.

The 44-year-old "New Edition" singer was ordered to report to jail March 20. He also was placed on four years of informal probation and will be required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program.

Brown's attorney Tiffany Feder had no immediate comment on the sentence.

The sentence was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
