Del McCoury Chosen by Guthrie Family to Finish Lost Songs

Rolling Stone Country reports: ""My wife says, 'You should get in the studio and record,'" says Del McCoury with a laugh, "'You're going to run out of time one of these days.'" It's the week before DelFest — McCoury's eighth annual Memorial Day festival set for this weekend in Cumberland, Maryland — but the bluegrass legend sounds as relaxed as if he's on an extended vacation. Clearly he's as undaunted joking about his own mortality as he is about the idea of spending the holiday weekend performing in likely sweltering heat and humidity before capacity crowds on a stage just a stone's throw from West Virginia."

David Crosby Apologises to Neil Young

Rolling Stone reports: "Eight months after causing a major rift with Neil Young when he labeled his girlfriend Daryl Hannah a "purely poisonous predator," David Crosby went onto the Howard Stern Show and offered a heartfelt apology. "I was completely out of line," he said. "I have screwed up massively. Daryl Hannah never wound up in a Texas prison. I'm screwed up way worse than that girl. Where do I get off criticizing her? She's making Neil happy. I love Neil and I want him happy.""
