Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen Charity Album Fraudster Facing Jail

(Classic Rock) A fraudster who conned investors out of nearly $600,000 by vowing to release a charity album featuring Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen faces up to four years behind bars.

Kasey Anderson from Portland, USA, also said he would host a concert in aid of the West Memphis Three - three men convicted of murdering three young boys in Arkansas that many believe were wrongly accused because of their love of heavy metal and their case was the subject of the "Paradise Lost" documentaries.

Anderson, 34, was caught defrauding 30 investors for the non-existent album and later also conned more money by claiming he was to host a live show featuring some of the album's apparent stars.

However, he was actually using the money to bankroll his own musical career. He says mental illness and drug abuse led him to lie to friends. more on this story
