NEW YORK (AP) -- Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason says their upcoming record is a tribute to keyboardist Rick Wright. He says "The Endless River" is a good way of seeing how Wright's playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Pink Floyd revealed the cover art on buildings in 10 cities, including New York and Los Angeles. It shows a man rowing a boat through clouds. The album features tracks that were originally part of the 1993 "Division Bell" sessions, with new and re-recorded parts. "The Endless River" comes out November 10. Wright died in 2008.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Chris Brown believes having a lot of success at a young age went straight to his head. He acknowledges he was arrogant and thought he was invincible. Jail time took care of that. Brown says his past troubles have made him realize he can't keep messing up. Brown says the media will always associate him with domestic violence, even though other celebrities have made similar mistakes. He says the media will use him to portray a bigger message that domestic violence is not OK. Brown says he's been blessed with talent and he doesn't want to waste it. His new album, "X," is out now.

BROOKFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- To this day, Jim Peterik (PEE'-ter-ihk) of The Ides of March can't hear the song "Vehicle" without hearing the splice. The band recorded a killer take of that song, only to discover a 13-second chunk had accidentally been erased. The engineer spliced in a section from another take. The splice is from the second time Peterik sings "Great God in heaven" up to the guitar solo. Peterik says the second splice is more obvious, because the first note of the guitar solo is too abrupt. However, he says they knew if they had tried to record it again it would not have been as good. Peterik discusses his career in The Ides of March and in Survivor in his book, "Through The Eye of the Tiger," out today.

PHOENIX (AP) -- The new thrift store in Phoenix has a sweet name: Alice's Attic. The "Alice" behind it happens to be Alice Cooper. The Arizona Republic reports Cooper held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week for the store. It's in the same building as his Rock Teen Center, which helps at-risk kids learn music. Cooper says he's a shopaholic who sometimes comes home from tour with 10 suitcases full of clothes. Some of the items for sale in the store are items Cooper wore. Part of the proceeds benefit the youth center, and Cooper plans to teach kids how to work in the store.


TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) -- The new Slayer-mobile from automaker Scion is so stacked with features you may never actually drive it.

The car has Slayer's name painted on the door and the band's logo on the hood. Guitarist Kerry King says, "Working with Scion has given us another way to reach new audiences and inspire them to keep going down their own paths." The car will be revealed at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association Show in Las Vegas in November.
