Music Notes: Teen Idols Honored

Teen idols are earning a spot among the legends of the rock 'n' roll world.

While some may not put David Cassidy in the same class as a musician like Eric Clapton, their memorabilia will soon be shown in the same building.

Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will host an exhibit devoted to the bubble gum music set next year and is clearly stretching the boundaries of what's considered rock.

Curator Jim Henke is collecting memorabilia dating back to the 1940s to include crooners like Frank Sinatra.

Henke tells The Associated Press he has already obtained some memorabilia from Cassidy, Debbie Gibson and New Kids on the Block.

Sick Days for Rock Stars

Attendance has been far from perfect on the summer concert circuit.

Fans paying out big bucks to see their favorite performers are facing disappointments as Madonna, Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks are among the artists who have called in sick for some of their performances.

Janet Jackson is the latest artist hit with the flu. She missed her Sunday night concert in Cleveland, rescheduling that date for Sept. 5. Jackson previously cancelled a July date in Milwaukee while suffering a dental emergency.

'N Sync fans were entertained by just four of their five heartthrobs in San Antonio, Texas Sunday. Joey Fatone was missing from the song and dance routine while resting in a Florida hospital with pneumonia. He is expected back as soon as possible.

Moreover

One of the Fugees is re-inventing Indiana Jones. Group member Pras is set to star in a new version of the adventure flick, billed as Indiana Jackson.… Dave Matthews is confirmed for this year's Farm Aid concert. He'll do a solo performance without his band for the Willy Nelson charity event in Indiana Sept. 29.
