Question of the Day
KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) - A New York landlord says he's selling the personal possessions of a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member because the musician owes him tens of thousands of dollars in back rent for storing the items for more than a decade.
Mike Piazza held a garage sale over the weekend in Kingston to recoup some of the $60,000 to $70,000 he says he's owed by Garth Hudson, who played the organ and horns for The Band, inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1994.
Piazza tells the Times Herald-Record of Middletown ( http://bit.ly/WdQk6m) that Hudson's possessions include boxes of sheet music, records and household items. He says he decided to sell the items after attempts to get Hudson to pay the back rent for the storage failed.
The newspaper reports that Hudson declined to be interviewed.
