Peter Frampton + Other Rockers Lament Loss of Stolen Gear

It seems like a glamorous life, but the touring musician’s existence is littered with pitfalls most of us never even have to think about — including the destruction or theft of gig money, gear, and instruments, many of which are vintage, customized, or have deep sentimental value to their owners.

Elvis Costello Doesn’t Want You to Buy His New Box Set

He might be willing to mug with Muppets, but when it comes to record companies ripping off his fans, Elvis Costello isn’t fooling around — and he recently proved it with a sarcasm-drenched post on his official site, prompted by the eyebrow-raising price tag on his new deluxe live box set, ‘The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook.’

Saying “the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire,” Costello told fans that he’s “unable to recommend” the ‘Songbook’ box, and took the “unusual step” of recommending an alternative use for his fans’ money.

Love 'em or hate 'em, reboots are all the rage in Hollywood — both on the big screen, where you can't go a week without a new version of 'Footloose,' 'The Three Musketeers,' and 'The Thing,' and on the TV, where '90210' is back and 'Charlie's Angels' briefly took flight again this fall.

Recognizing a trend when they see it, the folks at NBC have decided to reboot the cult 1987-90 CBS hit 'Wiseguy,' which starred Ken Wahl as a tough-as-nails undercover cop who infiltrated the Mob. (Kevin Spacey gave a memorable performance as a creepy, drug-addicted gangster.)

Amnesty International is one of the world’s foremost organizations dedicated to the preservation of human rights and the prevention of grave injustice.

So it only stands to reason that in order to celebrate Amnesty’s 50th anniversary, someone decided to put together an album of Bob Dylan covers — even if it’s a little odd that they invited pop stars like Kesha and Miley Cyrus to join the roster of artists lending their pipes to the rock legend’s classic songs.
