-Thirty-nine years after his death, Jim Morrison is out of dutch with the law. Outgoing governor Charlie Crist had requested a pardon for the rock star, who allegedly exposed himself during a 1969 Doors concert in Miami. Yesterday Crist's request was approved unanimously by the state clemency board.

-Billboard has named Bon Jovi the highest grossing touring act of 2010. During the last year of touring the New Jersey rockers grossed $146,507,388.

-NME reports that The Decemberists are in talks with Michael Mayer, the director of Green Day's American Idiot musical, about having their own show.
