Dave STEWART is still best known as one-half of Eurythmics, his hit-making collision of fiery soul and icy electronics with singer Annie Lennox. But he's also had an active career these last two decades as a songwriter-producer, collaborating with the likes of Tom Petty, Mick Jagger, No Doubt and Sinead O'Connor. Even Celine Dion recorded one of his songs. With work scattered amid dozens of albums, he's now rerecorded 21 songs with his Rock Fabulous Orchestra and some gifted vocalists.

This post has been updated. Please see below for details. Stars under the stars is what the Hollywood Bowl is all about. In the 2014 Bowl season announced Tuesday by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, a number of them - namely, the cast of “Hair” -- will be briefly nude and spouting some salty language. And Gustavo Dudamel, the star most fundamental to the Phil's fortunes, will conduct a composition of his own for the first time in L.A. The cluster of names assembled for the season also includes Esa-Pekka Salonen, making his first Bowl appearances since stepping down as the Phil's music director and taking up his lifetime baton as its conductor laureate.

Texas Rangers pitcher Dave Stewart, a former Dodger, was arrested this week on suspicion of participating in an act of lewd conduct in a public place with a transvestite prostitute, police and a Ranger spokesman said. The arrest, near Sixth and Crocker streets downtown, was the second this month of a well-known athlete in Los Angeles. Olympic gold medalist Edwin Moses was arrested Jan. 13 in Hollywood, where he allegedly solicited sex from an undercover female officer.

Matt Kemp is aiming to return from his off-season ankle and shoulder operations in the Dodgers' season-opening series in Australia. But Kemp's agent is advising him against pushing himself to play in the two-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Dave Stewart emphasized that Kemp has not suffered a setback in his rehabilitation and said he was telling Kemp to consider postponing his season debut only a precaution. “His biggest issue with injuries has been trying to get back too soon,” Dave Stewart said.

Dave Stewart did not go to Disneyland after the World Series. He did, however, go see the kids at the Ossian Carr Clubhouse, a chipped, cracked Boys Club house in Oakland, not far from where he was raised. Stewart went so many times, in fact, that he lost count.

Dave Stewart sits at a picnic table under the cleansing Florida sun. He's not too far from the spot where he stood one year ago and predicted that he would win "20 to 30" games in his first full season with the Rangers. Now he's telling how those dreams came flying apart and how he plans to get his career back on solid ground. It is convincing talk. "It's always tough to suffer bad things. Anything that's not what you expect it to be is tough to swallow," Stewart says.

The fading California sun triggers a Jekyll and Hyde transformation each night on the decaying streets of Oakland, bringing into view the nocturnal world of crack, cocaine, prostitution and death. It is here, in one of America's most troubled and dangerous neighborhoods, that Oakland A's right-hander Dave Stewart has decided to make his most important pitch. Stewart's target is the children of Oakland--many times the forgotten victims of the city's drug wars.

First it was cameras, cars and electronics. And now, horror of horrors, is baseball to be the next U.S. industry to find itself outgunned by the Japanese juggernaut? The question, which would have evoked laughs last week, seems suddenly pertinent after the showing of a major league all-star team touring Japan for an eight-game series. The Americans have lost the first four games to their Japanese counterparts, including an 11-6 rout today in Fukuoka, a city on the southern island of Kyushu.

Your newest inductee into the Ex-Dodger Hall of Fame once said: "At the top of my game, I could be the most dominating force in baseball"--and then had to beg for a major league tryout a year later. This would be the same guy who couldn't find happiness unless he tripped over it, who once punched a manager, screamed at another, found his way onto a police blotter. This would be Dave Stewart, back from more tribulations than you can shake a melodrama at.

Kevin Brown was acquired from the Florida Marlins to be the ace. Dave Stewart was coaxed out of the front office to provide an attitude. The two fierce competitors are the key components of a remodeled pitching staff that enhances the San Diego Padres' bid to reclaim their National League West title of 1996 and convince voters of the need for a new stadium. "From one through five now," General Manager Kevin Towers said of a rotation that has Brown as the new No.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Perhaps the trade rumors will resurface in spring training or at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. But for now, the Dodgers' plan is to hold on to Matt Kemp. That's what Kemp's agent said he was told by General Manager Ned Colletti at baseball's winter meetings on Wednesday. "He said that they're not going to move him," said Dave Stewart, the former All-Star pitcher who represents Kemp. Before the winter meetings, Stewart told The Times he would be surprised if his client wasn't traded this winter because of the unusual amount of media speculation about Kemp's future.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.  - Matt Kemp doesn't want to go anywhere, but his agent is convinced the Dodgers will trade him this off-season. "I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen," said Dave Stewart, the former major league pitcher who represents Kemp. Stewart noted that Kemp's possible departure has been rumored for more than a month. "I haven't heard a player's name floated around like that and something not happen," Stewart said. So, for the first time in his decade as an agent, Stewart will attend baseball's winter meetings, which start Monday.

Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp underwent a left ankle operation Monday that will limit his off-season training program, according to his agent, Dave Stewart. Stewart said Kemp is expected to be ready for opening day. The procedure was performed in North Carolina by famed ankle specialist Robert Anderson. Kemp had torn cartilage removed from his ankle. Kemp was sidelined for all of the playoffs because of problems with the ankle. Dodgers physician Neal ElAttrache feared that if Kemp continued playing, he could break one of the major weight-bearing bones in his foot.

For the Dodgers to advance to the World Series, they'll have to do to the St. Louis Cardinals what the Cardinals did to them. "We have to beat their ace," Adrian Gonzalez said. "It's that simple. " So, come Monday at Dodger Stadium in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, Hyun-Jin Ryu will be asked to replicate the performances of Cardinals starters Joe Kelly and Michael Wacha in the first two games of the series. Kelly kept up with Zack Greinke in Game 1 to set the stage for the Cardinals' 13-inning, 3-2 walk-off victory.

On a recent summer day at the Paramount lot, the five members of the group SuperHeavy played along to a recording of their first single, "Miracle Worker," as a camera crane swooped over an assembled crowd of a few hundred and the music boomed. Onstage in the middle of the lot's faux urban streetscape, Mick Jagger lipped the words and moved like himself while the big crowd bounced along to an upbeat, dance hall-inspired pop song. Budgets being what they are, it's not often that a music video in 2011 features a few hundred extras.

Dave Stewart calls Davey Lopes his best friend. He refers to him as a brother. And he thinks he might be the person who can guide Matt Kemp to greatness. "Matt will have someone he can trust," said Stewart, the former All-Star pitcher who is now Kemp's agent. The second baseman of the Dodgers' famed infield of the 1970s, Lopes officially returned on Monday to the club with which he made his name. Lopes, 65, will be the Dodgers' first base coach next season, joining the staff of rookie Manager Don Mattingly that also includes Trey Hillman (bench)

Matt Kemp has a problem, one as big as his own half-hearted play at times and inability to hit an outside pitch — his agent Dave Stewart . Stewart suggested recently Kemp might be better off playing somewhere else, and while most Dodgers fans have stuck by an inconsistent Kemp, here's what Stewart thinks about Dodgers fans. "Do you think for one moment I care about the town of L.A. or the fans there?" Stewart wrote in an e-mail to Page 2. No idea what Stewart has against L.A. because he was known in his time here to just pick someone off the street and immediately befriend them.
