- Jeff Lynne reminisces about The Traveling Wilburys. Money quote: "What didn't come across in the music was a sense of awe. I see Roy Oribson (sic) across the mic, and I go, 'This is really happening....'"

- Here are the full details of Ringo's summer tour.

- Ringo provided his services to Ben Harper on one song from Relentless7's forthcoming album, Give Till It's Gone.
