Poison will be featured in VH1’s new Live & Loud series. It is recommended girls wear the least amount of clothing as possible considering this could turn into a casting session for a potential Rock of Love 4 show….Steven Adler (Guns N Roses) recently commented on bands and stars he met while touring with his band Adler’s Appetite. When asked about his show in Minnesota (where Bret Michaels was playing) he commented, “I didn’t get to meet Bret Michaels, but did get to meet Big John, and he’s the main guy on that show Rock of Love”. Thank you Steven for this week’s installment of “let’s boost Big John’s confidence”….

Ratt is working on their new album and all of the music and writing is coming from the members of the band. “This is Ratt music at its best, created by the band like it used to be”, said lead singer Stephen Pearcy. I’m going out on a limb and predict the cover will have a lot of female skin, two songs about revenge, four songs about looking for sex, and five songs about hookers. Personally, I can’t wait….You can now purchase a Sabastian Bach (Skid Row) application for your iPhone that will allow you to watch Bach videos, receive music, and engage in conversations with fans over songs and favorite types of denim jackets….Gene Simmons (Kiss) was photographed being frisked by Beverly Hills police. Apparently nothing came of this except an idea for Gene to market a KISS police badge, KISS baton, and KISS two-way radio….

In one of their first shows, super group Chickenfoot drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chile Peppers) injured his foot, forcing cancellation of a few shows so he can rehabilitate. Singer of the group, Sammy Hagar, was rumored to be confused and to have said, “Can’t he just pour tequila on the wound? Tequila fixes everything!”….David Coverdale (Whitesnake) recently spoke about the recording process for their latest work “Good to be Bad”. They recorded the album in Nevada where wild fires forced bears onto the property they were located. No word on whether one of the bears jumped on the hood of Coverdale’s white Jaguar and started gyrating….Finally, from the WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER files: Twisted Sister will be performing live, July 16th, on Regis & Kelly….
