Top Gun actor Val Kilmer has a 19-year-old son named Jack Kilmer. He's an aspiring actor and professional model. You can see him in the new Saint Laurent men's print ad campaign. Also featured in the black-and-white campaign is Pierce Brosnan's 17-year-old son, Dylan. Rumor has it Dylan was allegedly 'street-cast' by YSL's creative director in Malibu. Um, what street would that be?

Robby Krieger of the Doors Shares Classic Tales With Glide (INTERVIEW)

AC/DC said it best: "Rock & Roll ain't noise pollution. Rock & Roll ain't gonna die." And for so many bands, truer words have never been spoken. Take The Doors. Born in the California of the sixties when political tensions were heating up and the youth were on the borderline of getting angry and getting high, the band created a whirlwind of hypnotic music before the death of their creative lead singer, Jim Morrison. Forty-three years later, their music is still on the airwaves, still seducing the youth with their charismatic psychedelic nuggets. Forty-three years from now, you will still be able to find "People Are Strange," "Riders On The Storm" and "Light My Fire" playing somewhere. It's almost a guarantee.

Featured Book

The Doors On The Road
by Greg Shaw provides a comprehensive timeline of live performances, reviews of the shows, stage antics of the performers, gossip related to the events, and recording sessions.

There were all these little rooms backstage, see, and i was talking to a girl in one of the rooms—it was actually a shower room, I guess. Then this cop came in and stared hassling me and sprayed some gas in my eyes—it blinds you temporarily—and finally someone told him that I was with The Doors and was supposed to be there, or something like that. The cop let me go. Later, when i was onstage, i was singing "Back Door Man" and in the middle I started telling the crowd what had happened backstage.

—Jim Morrison
