First notes (5/27/2014): Mike Patton is the greatest singer?



Editor's Note: First Notes is a weekly update of recent happenings in the world of music.

* Judging singers by their octave range, it turns out that Mike Patton of Faith No More fame is the "world's greatest singer." A published chart compares the range of well-known singers. While Axl Rose topped the initial list, VVN Music claimed Patton after examining more vocal ranges.

* Speaking of being judged, Charlotte's own Funky Geezer will appear on America's Got Talent, which premieres tonight at 8 p.m.

* T.I. got in a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas, thanks to social media ... something about Instagram ... does it really matter?

* Kanye West got married over the weekend.

* Wiz Khalifa was arrested in Texas (where else?) for marijuana possession. Making the most of the experience, the rapper Tweeted a selfie from his cell.
