With Fleetwood Mac back out on the road with Christine McVie, fans are wondering how they went for three straight tours without some of her classic tunes...
    Roger Waters posted on Facebook pleading with fans to stop thinking he's in Pink Floyd. Obviously, touring the world several times for half-a-decade performing complete Pink Floyd albums -- along with actually taking the stage with Pink Floyd in recent years -- has confused a number of fans who are, apparently, hassling Waters' wife about his membership in the band. Waters posted in part on Facebook a plea to his fans: Dear Friends Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don't have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip. Recently released is the Pink Floyd's documentary, The Story Of Wish You Were Here. The doc, which was directed by John Edginton chronicles the making of the band's 1975 classic. Edgington told us that over 25 years after the legal wrangling with David Gilmour over the Floyd brand name -- and ultimately over who really was the driving force behind the band -- Roger Waters is finally able to see himself within the bigger picture: "I interviewed Roger 10 years ago. I did a documentary about Syd Barrett, and it was the first time that David and Roger had been in anything together because they both have strong feelings about Syd. And Roger's feelings about Syd were very transparent. I mean, he was crying in the interview. So, that surprised me and I thought there was something going on. I think it's kind of got Roger to a place where all this has come together. He's in his 60's and he's realized that actually, y'know, this stuff wasn't necessarily all about him."

    George Clooney is Amal Alamuddin's idea of Mr. Perfect. According to People, Amal's best friend, Jae Kim, delivered a speech at their wedding revealing that they had spoken about Amal's hunt for "the one" before starting to date George. Jae said, "We stayed up talking late into the night about relationships and whether she would ever meet her partner in life. She had just been picked the 'Hottest Barrister in London,' and I was concerned that this would not work in her favor, as most men found her intimidating already. The list of things she was looking for in this man, she readily admitted, could not realistically be found in one person. She was looking for Mr. Perfect, and he was nowhere to be found." Amal's pal also revealed that when she started dating George she had some reservations saying, "I have to admit, that caused some motherly panic. Is she going to get hurt? He isn't exactly Mr. Commitment, I thought." She added, "You could see in the way he held himself, treated her and others, and enjoyed life that his heart was big and he loved her with all of it. I had never seen her smile like that. She has had that smile now for almost a year straight."
