--Report: Incubus Frontman Accused Of Stalking Reality TV Personality
Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd says the woman who's accused him of stalking is a complete stranger. TMZ says former "Real World" star Svetlana Shusterman got a temporary restraining order against Boyd, and claims the rocker has begun threatening her life. He's reportedly been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Shusterman pending a court hearing next month. But reps for Boyd say he has no idea where the accusations are coming from, and doesn't recall ever meeting Shusterman.
--Motorhead Drops Out Of Select U.S. Festivals
Motorhead won't be playing quite as many U.S. shows as originally planned this spring. Loudwire.com says the group has dropped out of a number of events under the "World's Loudest Month" banner. Motorhead is no longer on board for the Carolina Rebellion, which is set for Charlotte, North Carolina on May 3rd and 4th; or Rock on the Range, taking place in Columbus, Ohio from May 16th through the 18th. The band is also out of the lineup for Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma on May 23rd, 24th, and 25th, and the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, Florida on April 26th and 27th.
Motorhead hasn't offered an explanation for canceling the dates. The group is still coming to the U.S this spring. They're slated to play a number of shows in the Western U.S. next month, including Coachella in Indio, California on April 13th and 20th. Festival organizers say Motorhead's cancellation was beyond their control, and that they're lining up other acts as replacements.

--AMC Developing Reality Show About Billy Corgan's Wrestling Company
Billy Corgan is apparently getting in the TV business now. "Variety" says AMC is developing an unscripted show centered around his independent wrestling company, Resistance Pro. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman is listed as an executive producer on the production, which will reportedly "pull back the curtains on the pro-wrestling world." So far the show doesn't have a title, and there's no word on when it might premiere. In the meantime, Corgan can keep busy working on two new Smashing Pumpkins albums, which he says will be out in 2015.
AC/DC guitarist Angus Young is 59.
