Bob May, who donned The Robot's suit in the hit 1960s television show "Lost in Space," has died. He was 69.

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl are among the musicians contributing covers of songs by Nick Drake to an album paying tribute to the English singer-songwriter, who died of an antidepressant overdose in 1974. The collection will be issued on jam artist Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records imprint. In addition, a DVD documenting the making of the album is in the works that will include a Drake video directed by and starring late actor Heath Ledger.

The new supergroup Chickenfoot, featuring Peppers drummer Chad Smith and ex-Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, have posted a brief audio clip at their newly launched official website. The band's debut album is expected later this year.

Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins and ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke are part of the lineup of a new supergroup called Halloween Jack. The band, which also features former Garbage bassist Daniel Schulman and ex-Alice Cooper/Slash's Snakepit singer-guitarist Eric Dover, will make its North American live debut Wednesday in Los Angeles. A press release declares, "Halloween Jack . . . are laying down an old-school glitter party that will cook your eardrums, blow your mind, and rock your world."

John Smoltz's performance bonuses with the Red Sox provide little incentive for him to return before June. Smoltz will earn $125,000 the first day he is on the active roster and $35,000 each day from June 1 to Oct. 3. He also will receive $500,000 if he is active on Oct. 4, the final day of the regular season, and $500,000 if he is Comeback Player of the Year ...35k a day!!!

Kelly Osbourne has reportedly checked herself into a treatment center in Los Angeles. The 24-year-old "has voluntarily entered a medical facility to address some personal issues," her rep tells People. "Her family stands by and supports her."

ET confirms the news that "Saturday Night Live" star Fred Armisen is engaged to "Mad Men"'s Elisabeth Moss. Armisen has famously portrayed President Barack Obama on the show, since early in the former Senator's presidential campaign. Moss portrays a glass-ceiling breaking young ad agency copywriter on the A&E hit "Mad Men." She also is starring in Speed he Plow on Brdwy.

Worst picture nominees include front runner "Love Guru". "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans" - Also competing for the top dishonor is "The Happening," and Paris Hilton's "The Hottie and the Nottie," which earned three Razzie nominations overall. The movie sold only $27,000 in tickets but cost about $2 million to make. Other Razzie nominees include actor-comedian Eddie Murphy, who received two nominations for "Meet Dave";
