From: The Boston Globe
Date: March 24, 1993

The hard-rocking Guns N' Roses have left town (not a moment too soon for some city officials), and they were supposed to have been followed by former Guns-slinger Izzy Stradlin. However, Stradlin has had to cancel his Friday show at Avalon because of illness.

*Guns N' Roses played their show at Boston Garden, Boston, MA on march 17, 1993.

NOVEL NOD: 20th Century Fox has closed a $1 million deal for Hub author Alice Hoffman's yet-to-be-published novel "Thursday's Child," about a woman who falls in love with a man raised by wolves. "Thursday's Child," which will not appear until next year, was bought for on-lot producer Lynda Obst, according to Variety.

The seven-figure transaction includes $500,000 to purchase the book rights and as much as $500,000 more for screenwriting services. Hoffman will adapt the material with her husband and screenwriting partner Tom Martin.

BEST POLL: The lineup for the WFNX Best Music Poll Concert next Wednesday at the Lansdowne Street nightclubs is impressive.
