Gift Guide

The ultimate rock star gift guide -- Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Fatboy Slim, and Vanessa Carlton are among the stars who L2T what they want for the holidays

This holiday season, Maroon 5's Adam Levine wants...

''This is really nerdy and dorky: I want the Jimmy Page Les Paul — they made this limited edition reissue of a '59 Les Paul that's just like the one he played on the Led Zeppelin albums. It's got this awesome pickup select that makes it sound like a Strat — and a Les Paul. I guess I'm a bit of a gearhead. Also, I'd be open to accepting the gift of a house in the Hollywood Hills. From anyone.''

This holiday season, Fat Joe wants...

''I usually don't get s--- for Christmas. I don't even get a freakin' croissant. But if I could get anything, I'd like to own a villa on Barbados. It would have a private beach, about eight bedrooms, a pool, and a private boat. Just like on that Corona commercial. But not in hurricane season.''
