As of today, anyone can legitimately hear part of the album. Columbia released "Brilliant Disguise," the first single from "Tunnel of Love." And regardless of the furor over the unauthorized copies, the fact that there's new Bruce music is clearly a surprise.

Sessions with the Beatles for the "Let It Be" album. Tours with the Rolling Stones. Hits on the charts. Billy Preston wants to Get Back. "I don't want to do any begging," said singer/songwriter Preston in a recent interview at his Malibu ranch about his goal of returning to prominence in the music world, "and I believe in timing. And when the timing is right, I'll be back." Preston will play at the Palomino in North Hollywood tomorrow night.

Ringo Starr spent most of his own show in eclipse behind helpful friends Saturday night at the Pacific Amphitheatre. But at the very end, the fourth Beatle stepped out from behind his drums and put his own engaging stamp on the proceedings. Starr, who winds up the first solo tour of his career tonight at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, got off to a flat start fronting his All-Starr Band. Decked in a ringmaster's silver tux emblazoned with stars, he opened with "It Don't Come Easy."

Camille Porske, lead singer and songwriter of the band Camille's Blues Box, is not one to just sit around and wait for rock stardom to come to her. She's busy. Besides fronting the band, which is playing at Duffy's in Glendale this Saturday, she's busy writing new material for the group's second CD and promoting its first album, "Anything That Means Everything." The album was released last month on Real Soul Records, a company Porske runs out of her home. "I have a lot of goals," Porske says.
