    Check out the Ibanez 30th Anniversary Limited Edition re-issue of their popular Musician Bass from the 1970s. Since only 15 of them were made, I have yet to find out what the asking price is for this specialty ax, but I thought we'd give 'er a day in court anyway.

Austin, Texas television station KXAN reports Spears slipped and fell after stepping out of his motor home in Nashville Thursday night, according to his friend Dee Pearce. He was found dead, due to exposure. He was 62.
