The Rockstar Ramblings: Dr. Ozzy Strikes Again

In a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine, Slash (Velvet Revolver, ex-Guns N Roses) says that he considered Axl Rose (Guns N Roses) as one of the singers for his recent solo project, explaining that Rose would be able to sing the shit out of all of his songs. I also believe this would give the two an opportunity to bond; each day calling Steven Adler (Adler’s Appetite, ex-Guns N Roses) and ask if he wants to get the band together then yelling “psyche!” Then hanging up the phone…

Ozzy Osbourne confessed to once trying to cure his Athletes Feet by rubbing cocaine on them. In his defense the coke was apparently cut with a lot of foot powder at that time. Ozzy then goes on to joke that it probably cost about 3,000 pounds a toe. Next week Dr. Ozzy explains how White China Heroin is a natural remedy for Poison Ivy, demonstrate how a syringe of straight whiskey will fix those itchy eyes, and take you step by step on how to douse an open wound with gasoline for quick healing…

Looking for love again? Heather Locklear has officially changed back to her maiden name, removing Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) from her life as she did Tommy Lee (Motley Crue). Anyone else picture Slash, Steven Adler, and the entire Steel Panther band in West Hollywood racing to her doorstep? Sort of a modern day version of the movie Rat Race (with Mr. Bean), but with more hair...

Lita Ford will be appearing at the Chiller Theatre convention in NJ. I wonder if she will bring along her friend Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and his family. Dee’s son Shane could do his comedy act. Now that would be scary!...

Speaking of scary: Bret Michaels (Poison) is naked on this month’s cover of Billboard magazine. Another disturbing image: How about Betty White in bra and panties hugging a sobbing, and naked Tony Danza? Nope. Not enough, I am still going to have nightmares over this magazine cover…

Long shot bet of the week comes from Live Nation for announcing that they expect Van Halen to save the live music industry in 2011. That is a lot to put on a group that is unpredictable to say the least. In other news, Live Nation is also betting on a horse named Secretariat to win next year’s Kentucky Derby…

Ted Nugent appeared on the television show Money Rocks where he discussed his upcoming album and the name of one of the songs: “I Love My Barbeque”. Apparently other titles not making the cut included: “I Love Hunting”, “I Love Meat because it’s what’s for dinner”, and the ballad, “101 ways to cook an Elk”…

Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) voiced an episode of Wonder pets which follows the adventures of three classroom pets as they travel the world rescuing pets. Eventually they form a tight bond, picking each other up as they falter, and become heroes together. The group is dependent on each other, until the lead pet leaves to become more famous, leaving the others pets behind, alone, and bitter…

While on the topic of what it’s like to tour with Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie (White Zombie) mentioned how Alice loves to shop. So far he has bought Rob a toy spinning pig and a Vanilla Ice tour shirt. Other rumored items Cooper is shopping for include a solid gold cane, a toy spinning skull, and a new putter…

With the holiday’s right around the corner, Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots, ex-Velvet Revolver) is working on a Christmas album that will include a reggae version of “The Little Drummer Boy”. Is it just me or do the words “reggae” and “Weiland” together sound like something bad is about to go down…

Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) was seen in New York City for a warm-up for another tour with Guns N Roses. Bach is working on a new album that includes a song titled “Country Done Come to Town”. Interesting side note to this title is if you cut and paste into Word and turn on the grammar function, your computer shuts down…

As if the picture in this week’s Billboard magazine wasn’t enough, Bret Michaels was on Ellen Degeneres show promoting his new reality show, Life AS I Know It. The show features his daughters Jorja and Raine, and long-time girlfriend (and mother of his children), Kristi. A few predictions: 1. Bret writes a song with his daughter titled “Cowboy Hats” 2. Two Words: Many Naps 3. A cameo from C.C. DeVille, wearing a trench coat and stumbling around Michaels kids…
