GEORGE MICHAEL: Singer's grave site won't be public
George Michael's gravesite will not be open to the public.
The late singer's place of rest in London's Highgate Cemetery will not be accessible to fans. Though the cemetery gives guided tours past the graves of its many famous internees, George's won't be one of them. Highgate's website has already posted notice that "George Michael's grave is not visited on the tour."
George's family and friends didn't want his grave to become London's counterpart to where Elvis Presley is buried at Graceland or Jim Morrison in Paris. (London Daily Mirror)
JOURNEY: Steve Perry will attend Rock Hall ceremony
According to Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry will be on hand next Friday when the band is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Cain tells the Dayton Daily News, "The ceremony is the first time we're going to get to see Steve Perry in a long time, so that'll be fun." But, he adds, "He's just going to accept the award and then skedaddle. That's all I know, unless something changes. [Our current singer] Arnel [Pineda] is going to represent very well, like he always does."
Apparently, Journey guitarist Neal Schon was not in the loop about this. He said, "Steve Perry will reportedly attend Journey's Rock Hall induction: Funny, this is the first I'm hearing about it."
The last time Perry appeared in public with Journey was in 2005, when the band's star was unveiled in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
