ADAMS' FAMILY: Apparently last night's performance by Lost Highway's Ryan Adams at New York's Irving Plaza to mark the release of his superb new album, Gold, was quite the star-studded event. Correspondent Shirley Halperin reports Elton John joined the ex-Whistkeytown leader on-stage for a rendition of "Rocket Man," before an audience including MTV's Tom Freston, IDJ's Lyor Cohen, Lost Highway's Luke Lewis, Clair Danes and Ben Lee, James Iha, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Alanis Morissette and every big time music writer/editor in New York. And the street marketing team was handing out Adams postcards with our own Bud Scoppa's HITS review excerpted on back.
