*Have a space on your wall for a giant pig head? Lucky for you, the swine prop from Roger Waters' 1990 Berlin performance of "The Wall" is going up for auction.
The pig is one of the props from Rob Harries' Halesworth, England workshop of Air Artists. Along with props from "The Wall," inflatable Freddie Mercury and Brian May from Queen's 1986 The Magic tour, two life-size polystyrene and fiberglass casts used to make the inflatable Babylonian woman used on the Rolling Stones' "Bridges to Babylon Tour," and the fiberglass train model used for AC/DC's "Runaway Train" concert.
Of course, there is also some non-inflatable memorabilia up for grabs too. You can check out the entire catalogue here. Bidding has already started and wraps up on September 15th.
*Chrissie Hynde has some major backlash on her hands. The Pretenders rocker talked to the "Sunday Times Magazine" about her experience with being raped at 21 by members of a motorcycle gang - and how it was her fault.
"Technically speaking, however you want to look at it, this was all my doing and I take full responsibility," she said of being forced to perform sex acts under the threat of violence. "You can't f*** about with people, especially people who wear 'I Heart Rape' and 'On Your Knees' badges... those motorcycle gangs, that's what they do."
*Bono has landed on top the list of today’s richest pop stars but he didn’t get there because of his singing. No, the U2 frontman reportedly made over $1.4 billion from his two-point-three percent share in Facebook, which he bought in 2009 for $86-million. According to the UK press, that means he’s made more from Facebook in the last six years than he has being in U2.
Bono’s riches enabled him to overtake perpetual richest pop star Sir Paul McCartney, whose earnings come out to about $1.1 billion, while Madonna is in third with a measly $800 million.
*Joe Walsh is writing a memoir. The Eagles guitarist talked to Billboard about his book, but didn't exactly give us any details.
"I've been working on it for about a year," Walsh said. "Some of it's really funny. Some of it is what happened. Some of it is other people telling me what I did and some of it is just plain my humor. When it's done it will come out. It's kind of a big undertaking."
*We may have to wait until Friday to get our hands on "Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014," but a clip of the band playing "Walk This Way" has been released. The concert film follow's Aerosmith 20-song headlining gig at last year's Download Festival at England's legendary Donington Park.
"'Walk This Way' is a good representation of the DVD," guitarist Joe Perry told "Rolling Stone." "We felt like it was a memorable show and we're glad we filmed it. To us, playing Donington is always a special event and it was more a roll of the dice since we were filming it. Happily our fans came out and most importantly, the energy was there between us and them. This clip is just a taste of the power of the whole DVD."
