Michael Kaminski, the Akron rocker-turned-cologne-bottle-stick-up man, gets blended by Blender


Blender Cartoon Goofs on Akron Rocker-Robber Michael Kaminski continues to make headlines -- well, sidelines -- for his slide into disrepute, from guitarist of onetime buzz band Cop Shoot Cop to inept stick-up man. The Akron guitarist's attempt to rob a fellow Rubber City resident with a cologne bottle has been now dramatized by Blender magazine, whose editors commissioned a cartoonist to illustrate their re-cap of the sad episode. See the full recreation in the May issue (with Alicia Keys on the cover), on page 22. -- D.X. Ferris
