RAY CHARLES SAY'S HE'LL GET BETTER: Ray Charles rolled up to see his old recording studio named a national monument, and said that he's a bit frail now, but he'll get stronger. Sadly, some of those closest to him aren't quite so sure. Charles' long-standing business associate said he didn't know anything about rumours that he was dying of liver cancer and that funeral arrangements were already being put into place, but he seemed less convinced that Ray would hit the road again. There is a new album in the works, but it's one of those duet-type affairs which always have the gloomy air of a career coda to them.
