DMB show good faith

The Dave Matthews Band will stay in the good-guys column by coughing up $100,000 in response to an August incident in which one of the group’s tour-bus drivers allegedly dumped 800 pounds of sewage from a Chicago bridge onto a boatload of tourists.

The eco-friendly band said it suspended the driver, Stefan Wohl, who had acknowledged driving the vehicle over the bridge about the time of the incident but denied dumping the septic tank.

Unfortunately for Wohl, a nearby security camera reportedly caught the incident on tape, and the State of Illinois filed a lawsuit against the band. The suit is still pending, but the band made the payout anyway – calling it a gesture of good faith and not an admission of guilt.

A Sly magazine

Sylvester Stallone is launching a namesake magazine like Oprah’s. Variety reports that Sly, a health and fitness title, will be aimed at men ages 35 to 54. The magazine’s debut in January will coincide with the premiere on NBC of his boxing reality series, “The Contender,” featuring appearances by George Foreman and Sugar Ray Leonard.
