Robbie Williams calls his neighbor Jimmy Page, mentally ill and accuses Page of spying on him. Sky News reports that the Led Zeppelin legend has not been pleased with the Williams’s plan to renovate his house. The Millennium singer reportedly has said that, “Jimmy has been sitting in his car outside our house, four hours at a time. He’s recording the workmen to see if they’re making too much noise. The builders came in and he was asleep in his garden waiting. It’s like a mental illness.” Williams went on to say that he thinks Jimmy is bored and welcomed him to come write songs in his home studio.

Bad Company has announced that they'll perform on the Rock Legends Cruise Six in February 2018 alongside Sammy Hagar and former Triumph singer-guitarist Rik Emmett. The move isn't that surprising - Bad Company toured the U.S. earlier this year with Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes on guitar when Mick Ralphs' medical issues wouldn't allow him to travel.

Bono made Glamour magazine history on Monday when he accepted the very first "Woman of the Year" award bestowed on a man. The U2 frontman was introduced by Amy Poehler, who after a few jokes got serious saying, "People like Bono give me faith in men. Bono has dedicated his life to being a light for so many who are scared and alone."  Bono took the stage telling the crowd of largely women, "I'll tell you the real reason that I'm here. It's one of the tiny, few awards that caused excitement in our house and stopped the usual dinner conversation and started...a conversation that unless we address this problem, both women and men together, our world will continue down this misogynistic, violent and impoverished path."
