STING: Another album box from the legendary star on the way
Sting has yet another vinyl box set on the way.
Last September he released The Studio Collection, which contained all of his rock studio albums. Now on June 9th, The Complete Studio Collection adds his three non-rock albums -- 2006's Songs From The Labyrinth, 2009's If on a Winter's Night... and 2010's Symphonicities -- plus his latest solo album, 57th and 9th.
Of course, Sting completists might be a bit upset that there's another box set so soon. So to make sure those fans don't have buy it again, The Studio Collection: Volume 2 contains the four newly added albums plus room enough in the box to slide in the previously released albums.
PETER FRAMPTON: Talks cars with Motor Trend
Peter Frampton was born in Britain and has lived in the U.S. for over 40 years. But his taste in cars is decidedly German.
In an "Celebrity Drive" interview with Motor Trend magazine, Frampton reveals himself to be Mercedes Benz fan. His Nashville garage houses a custom-built 2016 S63 AMG coupe, as well as a 2006 E500 wagon.
He says he hopes to take the AMG on a road trip and might even give it a run on a nearby track. But it does have its limitations. Admitting its trunk is too small to hold his guitars and amps, Frampton hauls his gear in 2006 Mercedes E 500 wagon when he visits his musician friends.
A Mercedes also serves as his West Coast set of wheels. Frampton keeps a CL 500 coupe at his L.A. home.
While a member of Humble Pie, he owned a 1965 Aston Martin DB5, which he calls his "first rock star car... It was the James Bond model, that exact model" as seen in the movie Goldfinger. There's just one regret -- selling it. Frampton believes the car, which he sold in 1980, is now worth between $500,000 and $750,000.
Peter Frampton's summer tour with Steve Miller begins on June 15th in New Jersey.
PINK FLOYD: Nick Mason is a fan of One Direction's Harry Styles
Pink Floyd's Nick Mason is down with Harry Styles.
In fact, the 73-year-old drummer thinks so highly of what he's heard so far that he's asked the One Direction singer if he could play on one of his songs.
The two were both guests on the same BBC 2 radio show in Britain on Friday, and Mason offered that he "happened to be driving along and...heard Harry’s single." He says he "listened to it and the DJ said afterwards, 'It sounds a bit like Pink Floyd to me.'" Mason thought, "Yeah, I could play that." He then asked Harry if he could play drums on a track on his next album. (NME)
