Welcome to the first (and probably last) annual glam rocker draft. I am your moderator for this event; we will meet our four participants shortly, first a look at the rules. More...

Michael Sweet from the Christian glam band Styper is auctioning off the rights to the classic song “Together as One” as well as dinner with Sweet. Aggressive drinkers who have a tendency to drop a lot of F bombs during the main course are advised to stay away… More...
The tour dates for the recently announced co-headlining tour between two of glam metal most popular veterans, Poison and Motley Crue have now been announced. You can check them out below. The trek is being dubbed Glam – A – Gedon 25 and will also feature influential outfit, The New York Dolls as special guests.
The tour dates are as follows: More...
Despite previous rumours and remarks in the press, Poison and Motley Crue will be teaming up together for a co-headlining tour in North America with special guest act, The New York Dolls. Glam – A – Gedon 25 will be the name of the tour, referencing the 25 year anniversary of Poison and tickets will go on sale March 18th.
Poison plan to kick off their 25th Anniversary Glam -A – Gedon 25 tour in Tupelo Mississippi at the Bancorp South Arena Wednesday May 25th. Michaels will then continue solo, playing Thursday May 26th in Ft. Walton Beach where he will perform for the fans and troops as he did last Memorial Day weekend. Michaels will rejoin Poison in Little Rock at the River Fest Amphitheater on Friday May 27th. Michaels will then perform solo at the Hard Rock in Biloxi on Saturday May 28th. Bret will rejoin Poison and Mötley Crüe Sunday May 29th at Rocklahoma. Poison will then continue on alone playing arenas from Memorial Day until rejoining Mötley Crüe in Dallas at the Starplex Amphitheater on Tuesday June 7th.
While Vince Neil (Motley Crue) does his time in jail his girl on the outside is concerned because he’s working the breakfast shift and has only eaten some peanut butter and a baloney sandwich. Given the length of his sentence (less than a month) this doesn’t sound like anything of concern. This sounds like fat camp for middle aged rock singers… More...
While Warrant is putting the finishing touch on their new album we take a moment to think about Jani Lane and where he may be. I like to think he is part of a mentoring program, helping lead singers get through serving their time in jail/prison. Right now Jani is opening a letter with his next project, the letter says simply: Vince Neil… More...
It was reported last week that Vince Neil (Motley Crue) owes 1 million dollars in taxes. He has since denied this report, but I’m assuming one of his many business ventures will cover the expense if needed. If not, expect a hat to circulate the crowd during this year’s Crue Fest…
Bret Michaels (Poison) continues to recover from heart surgery. The surgery was originally to fix a hole in his heart, but turned into a much larger procedure when they found an actual VH1 cameraman wrapped around his aortic valve…
Warrant has hit a new milestone with allowing their ballad “Heaven”, to be used in a commercial by the laundry detergent, Gain. Given eighties rockers seem to resonate with the forty something MILF (and non-MILF) crowds could we be seeing the start of something new? How about Skid Row’s “I Remember You” for PMS medication for that special time of the month? For men, well I can’t think of a better song than Def Leppard’s “Rocket” to sell penis enlargement products. Public service announcements for STD prevention? Motley Crue’s “Red Hot” works, of course, “I Remember You” may also work here as well… More...
This week a look back at what if certain break-ups, decisions, or meetings didn’t happen and how it would have turned out for the parties involved.
WHAT IF VAN HALEN DOESN’T SPLIT?
David Lee Roth stays with the VH brothers and continues touring to support the 1984 album. Eventually Roth loses his voice for a very long time, but this doesn’t stop Eddie and Alex from making their next album, an instrumental only record, titled: 1986. Despite Roth’s voice gone, they still tour (with DLR only doing karate kicks on stage) and for two years sell out arenas worldwide. Eventually, their popularity dies down with the ill-advised 1990 album titled: Still Runnin’ With The Devil. As for Sammy Hagar? Without VH in his way he focuses on his tequila, eventually forming a strong partnership with a leading brand and goes on to make billions with Jose Haggar… More...
While out promoting for Amercian Idol, Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) was quoted saying “American Idol is not rock n’ roll”, “American Idol will take Aerosmith up a few notches”, and that “Joe Perry is a loose cannon”. This was all in one interview! In related news, Tyler mentions he can’t find Joe Perry. He’s hiding Steven, waiting for all of this to go away. You can remove your head from Ryan Seacrest’s ass. He’s not in there… More...
It is being reported that Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, Sixx A.M.) and Denise Richards are no longer dating and have split. The uncomfortable part of this breakup is that they are neighbors. There can’t be a worse feeling than stepping out to grab the morning newspaper, and looking over to see a Porsche in Richard’s driveway with a license plate that reads SHEEN… More...
Duff McKagan (Velvet Revolver, Loaded, ex-Guns N Roses) has recently undergone sinus surgery to fix a quarter size hole caused from drug use. Based on this information I have to assume at some point Steven Adler’s (Adler’s Appetite, ex-Guns N Roses) nickname was Silver Dollar… More...
The finale begins with Bret in the backyard on his basketball court and a truly amazing discovery: Bret Michaels has a jump shot. More...
The show begins with a brand new look for Bret, the solid black bandana look. It’s as if we are looking at Evil Bret. The whole concept of evil quickly disappears when he gives his daughter (Raine) a guitar for her grades. The guitar has a Playboy bunny on it and the color can only be described as C.C. DeVille pink. More...
Tis’ the season, it’s that time of year again. This week we take a look and see what our aging rockers are hoping for under the Christmas tree… More...
In response to the Motley Crue/Poison 2011 tour Bret Michaels admits that his pre-mature announcement may have been a “pipe dream”. Vince Neil commented, saying it was “wishful thinking” at best. Is it just me or are these two being way too nice to each other? I smell another reality show. Ladies and gentlemen it’s VH1 Rock of Hair starring Vince Neil and Bret Michaels, watch as the two compete for well used girls, camera time, and dollars to go toward their next plastic surgery session… More...
This week’s episode begins with Bret in Indianapolis on the Bob and Tom radio show. The discussion begins light, discussing Michaels' health, then gets serious when they bring up the song “Talk Dirty To Me” and its place as a strip club anthem. Interesting, this got me pondering some of Poison’s music. Is it possible Poison isn’t only the strongest top 5 strip club songs, but also top 5 B-side strip club songs? Let’s take a closer look. More...
Here we are already at episode 6 with no way of getting this time back. This week Bret is still on the road while his family is home. His girls are preparing for their first day of school and Bret is bummed he can’t be part of this. This is of course because Bret’s priorities are: 1. Rock n’ Roll 2. Family 3. Bandanas. More...
This week Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) was asked to leave a bar and instead of politely grabbing his top hat and heading for the door he smashed a wine glass and then bit the owner’s hand. Can someone get this ex-Celebrity Fit Club guy a sandwich? To make matters worse Canadian cops found two grams of weed on Bach. So not only was Bach hungry from dieting, but also smoking pot. In hindsight the owner is lucky Bach didn’t eat his whole hand… More...
Last week Bret got marriage advice from Trump Jr. so this week he approaches his father and guitar player for their thoughts. Neither take a second to ponder the question of whether Bret should marry Kristi, both essentially look at him and wonder if Kristi will still have him. More...
