ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE is getting into the restaurant business with an eatery set to open in Hollywood next summer. They say they won't have memorabilia like the Hard Rock Cafe, and they won't be a music venue.

And how about this: can music journalists dance at concerts they are reviewing or does that reveal their bias?
