ABC/Randy HolmesBefore his death this past May, Chris Cornell donated a guitar strap to watch company Nixon for the brand's Rock LTD Collection, which makes watches out of musicians' personal items. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a portion of the proceeds from the new line will be donated to the Recording Academy's MusiCares MAP Fund, a charity for addiction recovery treatment.

"Addiction is a disease, and we lose far too many loved ones to the illness each day," says Cornell's widow Vicky Cornell. "MusiCares is a crucial organization and the MusiCares MAP Fund 100 percent supports the music community in its fight to protect those battling this affliction."

Cornell, who struggled with substance abuse throughout his life, worked closely with MusiCares before his death. In 2007, he was honored with the MAP Fund's Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his efforts helping others battle addiction.

Other artists donating items for the new Rock LTD Collection include Dave Grohl, Grohl's ex-Nirvana band mate Krist Novoselic, Elton John and Iggy Pop. The Cornell watch will be auctioned off at a MusiCares benefit event in May 2018, while the rest of the collection will be available in time for the holidays this year.

Matthew J. Lee/The Boston Globe via Getty ImagesCars frontman Ric Ocasek not only has a knack for writing infectious rock songs, but he also happens to be a talented artist. A new exhibition of the veteran singer/guitarist's artwork called "Ric Ocasek: Color the Lines" will premiere this Saturday, October 21, at Wentworth Gallery in Short Hills, New Jersey.

Ocasek will attend an opening event for the exhibit that runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET. The collection includes acrylic paintings on canvas and colored-marker drawings on paper.

Ric tells the Asbury Park Press that he feels there are similarities between creating his paintings and drawings and writing songs.

"Both things start with a blank piece of paper," Ocasek maintains, adding that "having random ideas and kind of putting them together into a finished piece [of music] is almost the same as drawing and painting, well for me because I kind of do abstract stuff."

Ocasek reveals that among the artists who have influenced him are Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, pop-art legend Andy Warhol and some Dadaist artists.

Ric also points out that in both music and art, "I was always looking for a crossover between what is pop but also what is legitimate or what is artistic rather than just what is commercial."

Meanwhile, The Cars recently were nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, after having previously been on the ballot in 2016 and 2017.

"It's nice to be recognized by your peers, and [get] that little extra thing that says you sort of fall into this group of people who are pretty recognized for their music," Ocasek tells the Asbury Park Press regarding the nomination. "So in that sense it's a pretty nice thing to look forward to, if it happens this year."

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesIvanka Trump was apparently a big fan of Nirvana. In her mother Ivana Trump's new book, Raising Trump, the first daughter says that she went through a "punk phase in the nineties," and was "really into Nirvana."

"My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts," Ivanka wrote. She adds that she once tried to dye her hair blue, but her mother forced her to change it back to blond using cheap hair dye bought from a drugstore.

Ivanka also says that she was "distraught" following the death of Kurt Cobain.

"Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much," she wrote. "After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone -- major melodrama -- Mom had to pull me out of there to go down for dinner.

However, many on social media aren't buying Ivanka's punk credentials -- for one, Nirvana is more grunge than punk. "Ivanka saying she had a punk phase [because] she was into Nirvana is like Taylor Swift saying she had a goth phase [because] she was into Avril Lavigne," wrote one Twitter user.

Additionally, people have poked holes in Ivanka's hair dye story, pointing out that it's highly unlikely that you'd be able to change your hair from blue to blond simply with cheap drugstore hair dye.

The Nirvana Twitter page also shared the excerpt, writing in the caption, "Ivanka Trump Nirvana Fan!!!!"

Kevin MazurBilly Joel and his wife Alexis Roderick welcomed their first child, Della Rose, two years ago.  Now the couple is expecting yet another little "Uptown Girl"...or maybe boy.

Billy tells the Belfast Telegraph, "We are due next month."  He didn't comment on the baby's sex. This will be the Piano Man's third child; Billy also has an adult daughter, Alexa Ray, with his second wife, Christie Brinkley.   Roderick is his fourth wife; they married on July 4, 2015.

Speaking of daughter Della, Billy tells the paper, "She sleeps through the night. I hope the next one will.”  He also recently told Harry Connick Jr. that Della seems to have a lot of musical talent and can sing on key.

When the paper asks Billy what he does for fun, he says he hangs out with Della and watches "her little wheels spin."

"She’s a hoot. She’s a funny kid. She loves to laugh. I like to make her laugh,” he says.  Billy adds that when he  plays Aviva Stadium in Dublin next summer, Della will come with him because "she has Irish roots" through her mom.

In the same interview, Billy is asked to confirm the story that he once rode past Donald Trump's home in Florida on his motorcycle and gave the house the finger.

“I do that all the time,” he replies. "It is probably on film somewhere. I’m sure they’ve got cameras all over the place. I’m not a fan. I think he’s got a pretty thin skin. I don’t think he is very happy in the job. I don’t know what he’s doing there. And neither does he.”

He adds, "We hope that the music just completed will stand as a fitting tribute to his life and legacy."

The cover art for Nexus was created by Virgil's five-year-old daughter, Zuni. The album can be pre-ordered now, and is available as a standard CD, a digital download and a CD/vinyl LP package.

Here is the album's track list:

"Nexus"

Erik Kabik/Kabik Photo GroupThis past Friday, Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band kicked off an eight-show Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the ex-Beatles drummer dedicated the show to the victims of the recent horrific mass shooting that took place in the city.  He also made a personal donation the day before.

On Thursday, Starr and wife Barbara Bach donated $100,000 via their Lotus Foundation charity to the Nevada Resort Association's just-launched Vegas Strong Fund, which supports the shooting victims and their families.

Matching the Starrs' donation was Caesars Entertainment President and CEO Mark Frissora, whose company owns the Planet Hollywood resort. The $200,000 is part of a total of $2 million that Caesars Entertainment has contributed to the fund.

Starr tells Billboard about his Vegas performances, "We're gonna try to play those shows with a lot of peace and love and try to raise the spirits."

The residency is scheduled to wrap up on October 28, after which Ringo and the All Starr Band will play a series of concerts in various U.S. cities that winds down November 16 in Newark, New Jersey.

Meanwhile, Starr tells Billboard that he was in Las Vegas for a meeting on October 2, the day after the shooting, when he heard the sad news that his friend Tom Petty had died.

"It was a shock," Ringo explains. "When you first hear it, it's like, 'What...?!' Like when I heard Elvis was dead…It has to sink in. It was very sad. That's all I can say, really. God bless him and his family."

Starr adds, "I'll miss Tom. Tom was a good friend. I played with Tom, Tom Played with me. I got to know him over the years, really got to know him when he was in the [Traveling] Wilburys 'cause of George [Harrison]."

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicAs a child, The Band's Robbie Robertson would often visit family at the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve outside of Toronto, where his mother was born and raised. Saturday, the 74-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer was honored by the reserve with its first-ever lifetime achievement award for his work with The Band, as a solo artist, and as a film composer, BrantNews.com reports.

At a ceremony held at Six Nations' recently opened convention center, The Gathering Place, Robertson said receiving the honor gave him a chance to pay tribute to his late mother. He also pointed out that the community was where he developed his passion for music, by observing his relatives playing instruments and singing together in what he described as a family music club.

"I said to myself, 'I've got to get in,'" Robertson recalled at the ceremony. He also credited an uncle and a cousin with helping him learn to play guitar.

"That was the genesis of my whole music career," Robertson maintained. "They started it and I didn't want it to stop."

Robbie also said he became captivated at an early age by his the Native American tradition of storytelling, which he later would incorporate into the way he wrote songs.  "When I was young I told my mother I wanted to be a storyteller," he noted, "and like most mothers she just looked at me, smiled and said, 'Oh, I know you will be.'"

Robertson also was welcomed as an official member of the Six Nations during his visit.

ABC/Andrea McCallinThe legend of Dave Grohl continues grow with the Foo Fighters frontman's latest act of kindness.

A young fan named Sabryn saw the Foos live in Washington, D.C., last week, despite having to walk with crutches due to an injury. When she met Grohl backstage, the musician noticed the crutches, so he brought out his own orthopedic surgeon, who helped him recover from his broken leg.

"Dave brought [the doctor] out once he saw that I was on crutches, and that's when his doctor mentioned that I was supposed to wear a shoe with my brace," Sabryn tells Alternative Press. "I told him that my shoes didn't fit over it because it's pretty big and my shoes are kinda small. So Dave said, 'You need one of my big high tops!' and I laughed it off."

But Grohl wasn't kidding -- he ran back to his dressing room and grabbed an extra shoe to give to her.

"I wore it for the rest of the night after Dave told me to put it on," Sabryn says. "It's definitely one of the coolest things to ever happen, and probably the funniest."

Dave and Foo Fighters are currently on tour in support of their new album, Concrete and Gold.

ABC/Fred WatkinsOver the summer, after a chance encounter at a Japanese music festival, Foo Fighters and Rick Astley joined forces to perform the '80s pop star's signature hit "Never Gonna Give You Up" together. Having united onstage again in London, Dave Grohl is ready for Astley to join his band.

"Rick is the man," Grohl tells NME. "The seventh Foo Fighter. He's such a sweetheart."

Grohl adds, "I love that he gets nervous before playing. He's Rick Astley! It's like he's Muhammad Ali! You just wouldn't be nervous, but he's such a good guy."

The Foos also paid tribute to Astley with a performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up" during their "Carpool Karaoke" appearance on The Late Late Show.

Foo Fighters are currently touring North America in support of their new album, Concrete and Gold.
