In response to the Motley Crue/Poison 2011 tour Bret Michaels admits that his pre-mature announcement may have been a “pipe dream”. Vince Neil commented, saying it was “wishful thinking” at best. Is it just me or are these two being way too nice to each other? I smell another reality show. Ladies and gentlemen it’s VH1 Rock of Hair starring Vince Neil and Bret Michaels, watch as the two compete for well used girls, camera time, and dollars to go toward their next plastic surgery session…

Skating with the Stars celebrity, Vince Neil got past the first week without being eliminated. Here’s a question: Which happens first? Vince gets voted off the show or out of Motley for being on this show?...

Slash (Velvet Revolver, ex-Guns N Roses) has announced that he will be working again with Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas some time in the near future. Let’s hope “working again” means more videos of Fergie humping dudes. Next time though, no slashing please, really kills the excitement if you know what I mean…

Gene Simmons (Kiss) is stating that he wants Simon Cowell’s job and would like to be the only judge on Cowell’s new reality show, X-Factor. Simmons, never one to lack in the confidence department, believes he is the only person who could do the job well. In related news, Gene Simmons is stating that he wants to be President of the United States and that he believes he is the only person who could do the job well…

Duff McKagan (Velvet Revolver, ex-Guns N Roses) updated the media on the search for a new Velvet Revolver singer, explaining that it’s not easy filling the void left by legendary front man Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots, ex-Velvet Revolver). I think it’s time for this week’s shout out to Huey Lewis, he is available guys. Pick up the phone…

The whole Axl Rose (Guns N Roses) suit against Guitar Hero for including Slash sounds a little fishy. Maybe Axl is setting this up so he can drop the suit right before Christmas, as a present to his ex-guitar player…And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!...

The LEMMY movie hits the U.S. in January. A film documenting the life of Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) is said to crush myths and rumors surrounding the rocker. What are some of the myths? Possible topics include how Lemmy has been the life of parties he’s never attended, that sharks have a week dedicated to him, and that police often question Lemmy just because he is so interesting…

Bon Jovi has announced that they will take a long hiatus once their current world tour completes. Anyone feel like life just got a little better after reading this?...

A YouTube clip (see below) has Bret Michaels at a Nascar race, performing a duet with Nanette Melina. There really isn’t anything to say, once after someone is introduced as a Nascar super fan, you know, it is what it is. You can take a look for yourself…

We are learning more about Sebastian Bach’s (ex-Skid Row) infamous night in Canada. It is reported that the ‘hand bite/wine glass throw down’ occurred at a bar named Riley’s Olde Town Pub. Bad idea Sebastian. Any Irish bar that puts the “e” at the end of Old is a place people go looking for trouble. How long did it take for Sully and Mick at the bar to start harassing you? Two drinks? One drink?...

The Sixx Sense, Nikki Sixx’s (Motley Crue) radio show has just hit 50 affiliates. Congrats Nikki, now the question is who will take over once you go on tour? Definitely NOT Bret Michaels I presume…

This week’s question comes in the form of multiple choices. Adler’s Appetite will be starting their European tour soon. Stephen Adler’s number one concern with touring Europe is A. Road Temptations B. Not being able to watch all of Dr. Drew’s shows C. Hearing the question “When is Guns getting back together?” D. Hearing the question “Could you repeat that?” each time he speaks…

Hate to be picky but the X Factor isn't new. It's been on British screen for years and it's basically just Pop Idol/American Idol, whatever you want to call it. Other than that, great job as always.
