Michael Sweet from the Christian glam band Styper is auctioning off the rights to the classic song “Together as One” as well as dinner with Sweet. Aggressive drinkers who have a tendency to drop a lot of F bombs during the main course are advised to stay away…

After leaving jail earlier this week, Vince Neil (Motley Crue) immediately went to McDonald’s where he ordered two quarter pound cheeseburgers and a large French fry. Similar to a last meal I suppose. If we are looking at only chain restaurants I would go with the Hardees Hot Ham N’ Cheese, Taco Bell hard shell tacos (six pack), McDonald’s French fries, Cousins Ham & Cheese sub, and the Olive Garden chicken parmesan in my top five. Unless of course you are allowed to drink; in that case, one bottle of Patron please…

Jon Bon Jovi (Bon Jovi) compared his band to a vintage wine that is getting better over time. Hmm, maybe a fruity, sweet, Riesling type vintage wine…

Adler’s Appetite has licensed their song “Alive” for Speed TV. Hey, didn’t we all agree that Buckcherry would be creating ALL the songs for racing?...

This week’s “Irony Sucks for You” item: Warrant announces the release of their new album titled Rockaholic the same week Jani Lane cancels his tour due to alleged alcoholic issues…

A quick American Idol-Steven Tyler update: He was up, then down, now back up. None of this matters because now the show starts filming live. Steven Tyler with a microphone surrounded by fifteen year old girls on stage equals potential entertainment…

So, first Duff McKagan (Loaded, Velvet Revolver, ex-Guns N Roses) finds himself on stage with Axl Rose and then bumps into Steven Adler and plays with him? I’m not one to throw the word stalker around lightly, but this looks suspicious. This reminds me of Jimmy Fallon: One by one bringing the cast of Saved by the Bell onto his show, in hopes of reuniting the original group. I see what you are doing Duff…

In a recent interview, Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) confessed to having over 1000 sexual partners. Welcome to the Pantheon Mr. Kilmister. You can pick up your card over there, and then join the table to your right where Wilt Chamberlin, Gene Simmons, and Charlie Sheen are waiting for you…

This week Motley Crue and Poison announced they will be touring together this summer. Las Vegas immediately put up the following odds regarding how the tour will end: 10 to 1 Fight between Vince and Bret, 8 to 1 Fight between Nikki and Vince, 5 to 1 Fight between C.C. and Bret, and finally 2 to 1 Fight between Nikki and Rikki over bragging rights of who has the better stripper name…

Finally, this week’s multiple choice question: Which of the following actions is driven by money?
a) Ratt’s Bobby Blotzer back peddling from recent bad mouthing of band members, now saying everything with Ratt is alive and well?
b) Sebastian Bach refusing to consider getting back with Skid Row, telling them to “kiss my fucking ass”?
c) Don Dokken wanting to do one more album with the original lineup (George Lynch is already on the record saying Don only wants to do this for the money)?
d) All of the above
e) A and C (will need more clarification on what Sebastian means by “kiss my fucking ass” to draw any definitive conclusions)
