The Associated Press reports: What do the haves want for the holidays? Peace? Joy to the world?

Nope. Not even close. Turns out most celebrities are a lot like the rest of us — they want stuff, expensive stuff, under the tree.

Some wanted gifts that come with a hefty, but somewhat reasonable price tag (read: if you have the money.)

Others wanted things they may still be looking for next Christmas (read: outrageous.) And a few, a very few, wanted gifts that everybody wants or gets.
Here's a quick look:

In the biggest not-going-to-get-it category? AUDIOSLAVE's Chris Cornell wants his own jet plane. His fellow bandmates were a little more reasonable — a mountain bike and a canoe.

In the I-have-it-all category, DEF LEPPARD's Phil Collen had to think for a moment about what he wanted. "A Starbucks card. I already have everything else."

But leave it to one person to remind us what the holidays are about. No. Not a righteous man. But a rocker. VELVET REVOLVER's Scott Weiland said he wanted another year like the one he just had — a sober one.
