Christmas Is The Time For -- Musical Gifts
December 11, 2007 at 5:43 AM (PT)
When it comes to holiday gift giving -- with apologies to MICK and KEITH -- you can't always get what you want. But if you go online, you just might find ... ROLLING STONES toy trucks and shoelaces, NORAH JONES underwear and SOULJA BOY LED dog tags, writes THE NEW YORK POST. And you can wrap them all in Enter Santa gift wrap from METALLICA before putting them under a tree decked out with MERRY KISSMAS ornaments (kissonline.com).
Welcome to the wacky Web-store world of chart-topping artists, where if you can't actually buy a stairway to heaven, you can at least get a onesie with "Stairway" art for your favorite infant Ledhead (led-zeppelin.com).
The rock band T-shirt has long been a staple of the concert tour, but now that every musician has a Web site, you no longer have to actually go to a show to collect souvenirs. In the interest of holiday good cheer, we've scoured about for the coolest, oddest and most fabulous merch from the music world -- so you don't have to.
* Pop princess ASHLEE SIMPSON -- never before known for her politics -- is selling fingerless gloves with the anarchy "A" symbol for $19.99.
* When it's finally time to open the presents, you'll want to remember your loved ones' reactions, and there may be no better way to capture those scenes than with the WHITE STRIPES' help. The JACK HOLGA Color Flash Camera and the MED DIANA Multi-Function All-Plastic Camera cost $180 apiece. But you'll have to find film for them on your own.
* The 9-inch-long ROLLING STONES toy truck is $15.
* In 1962, BOB DYLAN wrote the song "Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues." TODAY, the legendary troubadour is hawking a handy little 81/2-by-9-inch picnic set, with a cheese board, flatware for two, napkins and a corkscrew in a suede case with leather trim.
* For SEAN KINGSTON fans, there's the Beautiful Girl women's flat-bottom black panty for $17.99.
* Plant yourself on a chrome-plated AVENGED SEVENFOLD bar stool with heavy-duty vinyl seat (assembly required), just $75.
* JOHN MAYER is selling a glow-in-the-dark, recycled plastic flying disc for $12.
* Hopefully, DAVE MATTHEWS wasn't thinking about his 1996 double-platinum album, "Crash," when he decided to sell die-cast DMB NASCAR models for $64.99.
