When Paul McCartney’s September 25 concert in Tel Aviv drew death threats from an obscure Syrian-born extremist cleric, Ted Nugent quickly turned it into a publicity gambit to promote his upcoming book. But the real security detail for McCartney’s visit to honor the country’s 60th anniversary in song was considerably more extensive than a bow-hunting Michigan rocker with NRA credentials: 5000 security personnel, ranging from local police to members of Britain’s MI6 Secret Intelligence Service and Israel’s own Mossad intelligence agency, took part in guarding McCartney on his brief visit to the country, at an estimated cost of $2.8 million.

Chances are, there are more Pearl Jam fans living in Chicago, at the moment, than in any other American city. Bars surrounding the Cubs' Wrigley Field (and the city's radio stations) have been continuously blaring a tribute song recently penned by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. Written at the request of Cubs legend Ernie Banks, "All the Way" pays homage to the long-suffering Chicago team, which hasn't won a World Series title in 100 years. Hope springs eternal, however, and this past Saturday the Cubs clinched the NL Central title.

Slash Speaks Out On Solo Album

Slash is hard at work on a solo album, according to Rolling Stone. The magazine caught up with the former Guns N’ Roses/current Velvet Revolver guitarist after his weekend appearance at a Los Angeles Guitar Center Sessions. He said making the record has been a “cathartic” experience. “I’m totally on my own,” Slash said. “A buddy of mine has got a mini-studio in his house and we stay until two or three in the morning just recording the basic demos,” he says. “I’m used to a band situation where I’m one fifth of the input no matter who brought the song or whatever it is. Every band I’ve ever been in we all just sort of tear it apart, put it back together, and it comes out however it comes out. This is interesting for me because I’m just doing my thing and I have no one to answer to.”
