    You don’t hear Air Supply’s hits on classic rock radio and you’d probably have a problem getting, say, an AC/DC or Black Sabbath fan to admit liking the Australian group’s music. Such is the guilt inherent to guilty pleasures, silly as that is. But you can’t knock the fact that the band’s chief members have been performing and recording for 45 years, playing thousands of shows in that time to audiences of all sizes and at one time the group had a string of seven Top 5 singles in the U.S. The people who remember those songs (and who love...

    Jim Steinman, the songwriter and producer best known for his grandiose ballads sung by Meat Loaf, Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion and Air Supply, has died at age 73.

    PALMDALE - City officials say the poor economy might, ironically, help attendance at this year's Starlight Concert Series, even as they charge an admission fee for the first time in the event's history. The $5 gate fee, instituted beginning tonight for "American Idol" finalist Bucky Covington at 8 p.m., is expected to help mitigate the cost of the series. "It's cheaper than going to a movie and it's great entertainment," Mlynar said. Tickets for Covington's show went on sale July 6 and will be available again beginning at 2 p.m. today at the Palmdale Amphitheater at Marie Kerr Park, 2723...

Jerry Monaco, of New Hampshire, accused an employee dressed as Tigger of hitting his son while the family posed for pictures, WESH 2 News reported.

Union representative Donna Lyne Dalton said it was the teenager who was agitating the character, and she said it is clear from the videotape that the boy's parents were telling him not to get so close to Tigger.
