***New author Robert Hilburn got a pretty nice shout-out for "Corn Flakes with John Lennon And Other Tales from a Rock 'n' Roll Life" at last night's U2 show at the Rose Bowl.
Bono announced that Hilburn was in the house, congratulated him on turning 70, and heaped good words on the book.
***Bruce Springsteen canceled a concert in Kansas City tonight after his cousin, Lenny Sullivan, was found dead in his hotel room -- a source close to the band.
Springsteen announced the death on his official website, saying it was a "death in the family."
***Eric Clapton has bowed out of this week's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th birthday festivities for health reasons.
The guitar great's official Web site says Clapton will undergo a minor medical procedure for gall stones and won't be able to perform as scheduled at one of the two Rock Hall anniversary concerts in New York.
