ROCKIN THE CLASSICS

Looking for more rock in your life in 2011? Check out Archive 1887, which sells T-shirts with old school acts such as Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Bob Dylan and David Bowie.

The images come from rare and iconic photos from the vast Sony Music archive. Each shirt comes with an online code that unlocks a streaming playlist from the artist's catalog, career history and information about the design.

They cost about $58 each. Where to find them: Barneys Co-Op nationwide, Bloomingdales, and www.archive1887.com.

PULLING STRINGS

The Wear Your Music Artist Bracelets are made from guitar strings of your rock god heroes: everyone from Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and Brian May of Queen to the guys from Metallica and MGMT. Fans of country greats such as Dolly Parton and Tim McGraw also should take a look at Wear Your Music.

Musicians donate their used strings, which the company refashions into jewelry and packages in used DVD cases -- and proceeds from the sales go to the artists' favorite charities (including MusiCares, 1 Percent For the Planet, PETA, and UNICEF, among others). Just like concert tickets, prices go up with the bigger names and with the "classic" acts; $50-$500. Check it out at http://wearyourmusic.org.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I always wanted to work with him, above and beyond anything else, because I thought he was so amazing in 'A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.' I don't want to meet all these amazing people -- that's not the thrill -- I want to work with them."
