Ozzy Osbourne has gotten into another traffic altercation, this time rear ending another car while driving a Ferrari. In honor of this monthly event, let’s have a quiz: Which of the following are true of Ozzy’s driving habits? A. It took him 19 attempts at the driving test in order to get his license. B. Ozzy once fell asleep during a driving test, the instructor was gone when he awoke. C. Ozzy repeatedly showed up with alcohol in his body to his driving tests. D. All of the above…

Twisted Sister will be releasing re-issues of their “Club Daze Volume 1” and “You Can’t Stop Rock N Roll” albums in January. No word on the re-issue of Growing Up Twisted, complete with deleted “Shane and mother” scenes deemed too sexual for cable television…

Auditions are ongoing for Velvet Revolver. Anyone else picture Slash and Duff walking out of the studio to grab a mid-day sandwich and each day bumping into Jani Lane (ex-Warrant) in the parking lot? Just nodding his head saying things like “what up guys?,” “do you need anyone to sing back-up?,” and “in case you didn’t know, I am available!”…

Guns N Roses guitarist D.J. Ashba has come to his lead singer’s defense saying that it’s not Axl Rose that’s late to their shows, but rather their room service that is usually late, making them appear late on stage. I’m going to assume “room service” means Axl ordering a Thai prostitute that has never heard of Slash, used the word slash as a verb, or ever been in contact with another man wearing a top hat. Not exactly “chicken sandwich, hold the mayo” type room service…

Nikki Sixx is only months away from releasing his new book titled “This is Gonna Hurt.” Coincidentally Vince Neil will be releasing a DVD with his Skating With The Stars highlights titled “This is Gonna Hurt.” Both coming to a media outlet near you…

During a discussion of his past drinking days, Ozzy Osbourne gave away his sure cure for a hangover. Mr. Osbourne would wake up in the morning (or afternoon) and mix Brandy, Port, milk, and raw eggs together, and then drink the concoction down. As he says, “You are blasted right away in the morning!” No word on how the milk or raw eggs play a role. If it was me I would drink the Brandy, get blasted, use the milk and eggs to bake a cake, and drink the port with the cake to keep the buzz going. I know it’s always easier looking back…

Who makes the best Scrooge? Alice Cooper has been portraying this holiday character in order to promote his annual Christmas concert. Cooper would have to be in my top five along with: Blackie Lawless (W.A.S.P.), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Mick Mars (Motley Crue), and Lemmy (Motorhead)…

Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) has just finished new songs for his next solo album and released clips of him performing the song “Awake.” The ex-Fit Club dieter looks good, rumor has it he has ditched the VH1 boot camp style diet and is sticking to what he knows, mainly fighting and red wine. He calls it the South Bach diet…

Recently Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) was one of the few guests to perform for Paul McCartney at an even honoring the ex-Beatle. Which songs did he perform? Not sure what was on the tribute menu, but I’m assuming “Come Together” was involved. I would pay a lot of money for Tyler to sing “Crazy,” “Amazing,” and “Cryin’” for McCartney just to see if maybe he could tell the difference between the three songs…

In news from Sea World this week Tommy Lee (Motley Crue, Methods of Mayhem) ranted about how the whales are kept in captivity and treated as sperm banks. Lee went on to educate the press on the procedure for masturbating a whale that involves a cows vagina filled with hot water. Okay, I’ll ask: How do they keep the cows under water?...

Donna D’errico, the ex Baywatch beauty and ex of Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, Sixx A.M.) feels she was unfairly treated by the TSA during a recent pre-boarding screening, saying she believes she was targeted because she is attractive...in other related “DUH!” news Jon Bon Jovi is the luckiest man alive and the answer to the Ozzy quiz is D. All of the above…
