Captain Beefheart's House for Sale, plus Cher Hearts Gene Simmons, Harry Smith Salute, War Is Over If You Pay for It, Silver Lining for Israelis

  • Captain Beefheart's house is for sale. Buyer beware: It's made of dog food.
  • Cher still wants to be Gene Simmons' love puppy, and Shannon Tweed doesn't like it. That's a savory bit of news, isn't it?
  • A lot of people are on the Harry Smith "salute" CD/DVD. Here's a list: Beck, Wilco, Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, Beth Orton, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, David Johansen, Elvis Costello, Philip Glass, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, and the Folksmen (Michael McKean, Harry Shearer and Christopher Guest). See, a lot.
  • Welcome back, "War Is Over! If You Want It" billboards. Of course, this time they're just a promotional tie-in to the new John Lennon documentary. Now that's what I call an advertisement for a piece of the action.
  • Depeche Mode has canceled their Thursday show in Tel Aviv. They are no Deep Purple.
