Leslie West, the Alligator Man? The guitarist has an accent that suggests the closest he's ever been to the bayou is Queens, N.Y., yet he's the "Alligator Man" in a current record label bio, one which also proudly qualifies West as one of loudest guitarists in the history of rock. "That's all just Miles fooling around," West maintains, Miles being I.R.S. label head Miles Copeland.

Lisa Leslie acknowledged she was on a mission. This time that fact didn't escape the All-Star voters. The Spark center was selected most valuable player of the third annual WNBA All-Star game after a 20-point, nine-rebound performance that led the West over the East, 80-72, Monday night. It was vindication for Leslie, who had not been voted by fans as an All-Star starter despite averaging 19.1 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.1 steals for the Sparks, who have the WNBA's best record at 17-3.

Apparently U-2 can't figure out what to do with its new album. The upcoming record was initially conceived as a live double album, largely made up of songs recorded during its 1987 tour, plus a couple of new studio tracks. However, the band has emerged from the studio with at least a dozen new songs. What to do? The tentative plan calls for a double album, with one side of live hits, one with new material.

This is a band that used to be caught up in youth's snide irreverence, cracking pop-insider jokes at every turn. But on its new album, "Third Eye," Redd Kross--which has been on the circuit more than a decade--has expanded its outlook by adding a serious dimension.
