The Rockstar Ramblings: Same Ole Axl

At LAX, Axl Rose (GUNS N ROSES) got into a scuffle with a paparazzo that ended up with a few bloodied participants. Even with Rose flying to Taiwan there is still concern about whether he will be in the mood to perform, a question that had been raised earlier in the week when the rest of the band flew to the gig without the singer. It’s time to set the GNR Tour odds: 2:1 one gig is played; 3:1 the Asian tour is completed without incident and/or cancellations; 5:1 GNR makes it to their Canadian leg of the tour; 1:1 Axl self destructs at some point during the tour. Technically, for those that had self destruction, you can now collect your winnings…

Scott Weiland (STONE TEMPLE PILOTS), will offer the public a rare glimpse into his personal life next week as he auctions off a variety of clothing and personal affects to benefit his ArchAngel Organization. Fingers crossed the glasses and orange tie worn in the “Days of The Week” video become available…Miley Cyrus, in her upcoming album, is remaking POISON’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Is it too early to make the “five years from now she’ll be stripping and snorting coke in a parking lot with a guy that goes by the name Toyota” joke?… Larry King will introduce AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry's band, THE JOE PERRY PROJECT, when they play at the Land Shark Tailgate Stage on the AT&T Grand Plaza on Sunday, December 6, prior to the Dolphins-Patriots football game. Other illogical introductions planned include: George Lopez introducing Alice Cooper, the full cast of Full House introducing Ted Nugent, and the guy who plays Larry on “Weekend at Bernie’s” introducing Ozzy Osbourne…

TWISTED SISTER front man Dee Snider will guest on this Sunday's (December 6) episode of A&E's "Private Sessions." The special guest list includes Bobby Brown. BOBBY BROWN PEOPLE!!! Must see TV at its best…KID ROCK this week was caught doing an impression of the nineties when he was quoted as saying “Twittering is fucking gay” and “Twittering is retarded.” Rumor has it, Rock also believes that Beta machines still rule, the IPod is a conspiracy, and writing on stone tablets kicks ass…

The House of Blues Sunset, new residence to the greatest and longest running metal parody band on the Sunset Strip, STEEL PANTHER, has just reduced the price of parking from $20 to $8 every Monday night when the band plays. What are the chances Steel Panther are writing a ballad about parking price reductions and a stripper named Angel? Same odds as Axl self destructing on tour…

Axl is too old to be fighting with anyone at this point.
