• Tom Petty's widow -- Dana York Perry -- settled a $5 million suit brought against her by the rocker's two adult daughters Adria Petty and Annakim Violette. The pair sued their stepmother claiming she "superseded the daughters' rights to 'equal participation' over decisions involving the singer's estate and catalog." The suit, which was settled on December 10th, was said to have delayed the release of such Petty archival projects as the posthumous box set, An American Treasure, and the still-unreleased and long-awaited, 25th anniversary edition of Petty's 1994 Wildflowers album.

  • A pair of John Lennon's signature round "granny" glasses sold for $183,500 at auction on Friday (December 13th) in London. The eye-wear had been owned for over 50 years by George Harrison and Ringo Starr's chauffeur Alan Herring. In a statement released by Sotheby's, Herring recalled how he obtained the legendary specs: "In the summer of 1968 I had picked John up with Ringo and George in Ringo's Mercedes and driven the boys into the office. When John got out of the car I noticed that he'd left these sunglasses on the back seat and one lens and one arm had become disconnected. I asked John if he'd like me to get them fixed for him. He told me not to worry they were just for the look!" Herring never fixed the glasses, which sold to an unnamed bidder online. (Rappler.com)
