While we were out: Keef and Patti, Reese and Jim, Bristol, Fantasia, Billy Taylor

By The Reliable Source

The Reliable Source is on vacation until Jan. 3, but here's what's going on in our absence.

Keith Richards and Patti Smith -- so much more in common than just bone structure and haircuts. If you read only one 2,500-word comparison of the new memoirs by the two rock icons, make it Mark Jenkins's essay.

Bristol Palin is not enrolling at Arizona State
. And Reese Witherspoon is engaged. (You probably knew that already; sorry, been on the road.)

Oh, Fantasia. She's looking and sounding like the final scenes of "The Rose" these days, says Dave McKenna. "She took breaks every few songs to change hairdos and outfits, and even took off her shoes for much of the night, but no ensemble left her comfortable."

Sad obituary of the day: Jazz ambassador Billy Taylor, who had his first gig at age 13 at Bohemian Caverns on U Street. What a life. Also, Agathe Von Trapp, oldest surviving of the original family that inspired "The Sound of Music."
