The Rockstar Ramblings: Feed Sebastian!

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…

Britny Fox lead singer Dizzy Dean Davidson is back in the news with his new band (with his name) making new music and planning to tour. This got me thinking, where does Britny Fox’s “Girlschool” rate on the ALL CLASSROOM VIDEO showdown? My top five: 1. “Hot For Teacher” (Van Halen) 2. “I Wanna Rock” (Twisted Sister) 3. “Girlschool” (Britny Fox) 4. “Smoking In The Boys Room” (Motley Crue) 5. “Baby One More Time” (Britney Spears)…

So Kid Rock calls out Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) for being on American Idol to help promote his new album and Tyler calls him out on this (keeping Kid Rock’s name in the news for another day) and now they are back in love. KID IDOL: A love story. Coming in 2012 to a theatre near you…

Steelheart front man Miljenko Mativjevic is putting out a remake of the holiday classic “Hallelujah!” Is there anything this band can’t do?...

Giddiness is growing as word leaks that Ross Hogarth, who has produced Motley Crue and Faster Pussycat, is involved with the new Van Halen record. The new VH project is scheduled for release in 2011. I don’t care how many years it’s been, I will always eagerly anticipate every VH album until they put out something awful. Oh yeah, what about Van Halen III? Well, didn’t we all agree that one doesn’t count?...

The premier of Skating with the Stars is fast approaching and we are learning that Vince Neil has a couple of rules: No Pink and No Feathers. This definitely rules out the Theatre of Pain outfits, but is keeping the door open whatever ‘The Gimp’ wore in Pulp Fiction. Stay tuned. Overall, this appears to be a good move for Neil as he continues to promote his new book and beverage. Prior to this Vince was promoting drag racing events and tequila which is really not a great mix. Skating and tequila is much more natural…

Poison is releasing a box set titled Nuthin But a Good Time that will include music and an official Poison replica bandana. Not (but should be) included items: A replica C.C. Deville trench coat, a plastic cup like the one Bret throws to show he is angry in the video for “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”, and an application for Rock of Love VIII…

SHHH! Members not named Axl from Guns N Roses are beginning to talk about a new album. This is sort of like Bret Michaels discussing his big tour with Motley Crue next summer. Sometimes announcements need to come from the top and like it or not Axl Rose and Nikki Sixx are the leaders of these volatile groups…

Out of all the rock bands on the road no one is having more fun than Steel Panther. In related news, Steel Panther have announced they will be appearing on Playboy TV…

Question: Does AC/DC winning band of the year by Classic Rock magazine mean there will be a limited edition playing card to go along with the set of cards they are planning to release? Let’s hope so and let’s hope there are a couple of error cards like the 1989 Fleer Billy Ripken baseball card with the word FUCKFACE on the barrel of the bat. Maybe Angus Young with a Great White logo or “I slept with Lita” written on his guitar. Wait, where am I going with this…
