The Rockstar Ramblings: Court and Rehab

Band Photo: Guns N Roses (?)

This week Duff McKagan (Loaded, ex-Guns N Roses) put to rest the rumor that Guns N Roses will be reuniting for next year’s Super Bowl. Even I knew that. Everyone knows there won’t be a football season next year…

Nikki Sixx (Sixx A.M., Motley Crue) thinks Facebook is operating by a double standard after removing the photo for the single “Lies of The Beautiful People” from his account. So far the Sixx army has 200,000 supporting him strong. Should this go to court and we see Nikki (in his Sunday leathers) standing in front of a judge this could rate high on the courtroom comedy scale: Somewhere above Dee Snider’s (Twisted Sister) PMRC trial, yet still below every William Shatner scene in Boston Legal…

The Axl Rose vs. Guitar Hero III trial is expected to begin next year. Rose is suing for 20 million dollars because they used images of Slash in the game after he was promised this would not be the case. This was one item on a do-not-show list that included images of Axl in a kilt, boxers, or a head full of corn rows…

Poison is releasing another compilation CD, this one is called “Double Dose”. Let’s just call this what it is, a collection of a previous compilation of greatest hits. There, now I don’t feel quite as dirty…

Word out of the Aerosmith camp is that all is well and the band is expecting to record new music this summer. Tyler commented how he and Joe Perry smoked a peace pipe for an hour and finally came to an understanding. Must not have been very good stuff considering he remembers the amount of time they spent smoking the peace pipe…

The confusion over the Motley Crue movie, The Dirt, was finally cleared up this week. Rob Zombie will not be directing the movie. The confusion came from Tommy Lee saying he’d LOVE to see Zombie direct, despite no interest from Rob. In related news Tommy Lee would love to see a joint effort between Oliver Stone and Martin Scorcese to direct The Dirt…

Steven Adler (Adler’s Appetite, ex-Guns N Roses) is returning to the VH1 show Celebrity Rehab. Who had season 4 in the office pool?...

Motley Crue will be honored at this year’s Sunset Strip festival in West Hollywood. This once a year festival shuts down Sunset Boulevard with live performances on the street as well as inside the legendary bars such as The Whiskey, The Roxy, and Rainbow Room. The festival is also known as Christmas to the strip clubs on Sunset…

Who would have thought Alice Cooper would reach out to Lindsay Lohan and Bret Michaels would reach out to Charlie Sheen to offer their guidance in the same month? Of course, Bret Michaels has seen the direct effect cocaine had on his guitarist C.C. DeVille. It actually turned his hair pink…
