Happy Halloween!!!

There won't be any outdoor Halloween decorations at Bruce Springsteen's house this year. According to a post on, the Boss and his wife Patti Scialfa won't be decorating their New Jersey home because the crowds have gotten just too big. Springsteen wanted to give his neighbors and friends a heads up with a note on his website, writing, "So as not to inconvenience you this Halloween, due to 'catastrophic success' (read: too many visitors for the neighborhood to handle) and concern for the safety of kids and parents! we won't be having our usual Halloween display this year in Rumson. We wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!"
Peter Frampton
is so furious at having his Obama-Biden signs stolen off his front yard, that he's installed a surveillance camera to trap the thieves entering his property. Frampton, who lives in the predominantly Republican Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill, told The Cincinnati Enquirer that his signs supporting Sen. Barack Obama are constantly being removed from his property, explaining, "They are frustrating my attempt to use my First Amendment right to speech and political speech is supposedly the most protected. It bugs me that people are breaking the law because it bugs them so much."

Frampton, who became a U.S. citizen in 2004, said that he was so upset by the sign situation that he called the paper offering an interview -- the first time he's ever done so. He explained that the first Obama sign he put on his property lasted about three days and the second lasted a week before again disappearing from his lawn. During the course of his chat with the paper, the Obama signs were stolen again. He explained, "The reason I became a citizen is because I wanted to be able to vote and be part of being an American."

I wonder what Pete's reaction is gonna be when he realizes he's done all this to catch a group of teenagers...

Neil Young cancelled his concert last night at L.A.'s Inglewood Forum, rather than risk crossing a picket line of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). reported that the IATSE has a long history of labor disputes against the Forum and had threatened to picket during last night's show.

Young, who along with his wife Pegi are honorary lifetime members of the IATSE issued a statement saying, "I am extremely disappointed to have to choose between satisfying my fans or backing my brothers and sisters of the IATSE. I will miss playing in Los Angeles and apologize to my fans for the inconvenience this has caused."
