Richie Angers Punk Rockers

Veteran soul star LIONEL RICHIE has infuriated punk band NEW FOUND GLORY by giving his new album the same title as theirs. In retaliation, the Florida-based group have threatened to copy the titles of some his best known hits, if he fails to apologise for COMING HOME before the release of his next album. In a scathing letter to the star, New Found Glory write, "Congrats this week on the release of Coming Home - what an awesome title. Sounds familiar though... Oh yeah, it's the name of our new CD. "Anyway, we know it's too late for you to change your album title, but we expect a call before your new album comes out. "If you don't, our follow-up to Coming Home may be entitled DANCING ON THE CEILING with such original punk rock songs as SAY YOU, SAY ME and ALL NIGHT LONG."
