Today's Philadelphia Inquirer reports that when skateboard star and MTV personality Bam Margera marries his fiancee Missy Rothstein this winter, the ceremony will be conducted by FIREBALL MINISTRY front man James A. Rota. An ordained minister, Rota is a longtime friend of Margera; his band was hand-picked by Margera to appear on his "Viva La Bands" compilation last year, as well as a corresponding tour. On Margera's Sirius Satellite Radio program, Radio Bam, last week, Rothstein said that the wedding will take place on a Du Pont estate in Delaware before at least 500 guests.

FIREBALL MINISTRY -- who in recent months have toured alongside such heavyweights of rock and metal as Disturbed, H.I.M., Opeth, Nevermore, Clutch and CKY -- will return to the road this weekend in support of Alice Cooper.

FINALLY! someone else who ISN'T a fan of this idiots'... well, idiocy. Viva La Bam is possibly the worst show I've ever seen. Jackass rip-off, and not near to a good one, either.

True that. I mean there's people that go far by being idiots like Jack Black but the difference is he actually has some talent.

hey psythe,not that i am a fan of bams but he was doing these types of things for cky before jackass and even with landspeed before cky so no he is not a jackass ripoff,some of the footage that jackass used to show of bam was from the "cky2k" homevideo and earlier,Knoxville was brought into bams mix not the other way around.

direct series of events from viva la bam
BAM: "Hey we should drive that car off the cliff...hahahaha" (Crew laughs along for comedic effect)
Bam runs it by his technical advisors..."Can we do it?"
Advisors: "Suuuure! Here you go Bam! Here's $20,000. Go buy that car and destory it. And while you're at it, go toss this bloody mary at vito. And and give him this hazard pay too.
...for all you retards who think the show is real...watch it again, and virtually put yourself into their shoes and realize how f***ing scripted it is.

The reason the kids worship Bam is because of his attitude and his image. He dresses in all the most popular skate brands, and befriends many bands popular in certain subcultures. His show presents an attitude that appeals to the underage demographic. It's hard to explain, but he's known for being a reality tv star above everything else.
