Dokken has released a brand new music video for the single "Empire", taken from the band's 11th studio album 'Broken Bones.’ For serious Dokken fans, there is a DVD, which features a comprehensive "Making of the Album" documentary. This begs the question, are there non-serious Dokken fans? More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Lust, Glitter, and God

This week a start on the darker side with the Lust Boys followed by a Brazilian Christian band and then back to the sleaze with Glitter Magic. That’s right we are starting with drinking, finding God, and then back to drinking. It’s the circle of life, or the life of a spiritual alcoholic. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Casting for Bret Michaels

A couple of weeks ago Bret Michaels (Poison) announced that he is working on a movie about his life. The biopic will take the audience from his roots in Pittsburgh to Hollywood, California. Is this a movie that needs to be made? After two weeks to digest I still have no comment. It does bring up the question of who will play the lead role. Here are a couple suggestions. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: A Jackyl Screwdriver

This week Bret Michaels (Poison) announced he is working on a movie about his life. For those of you that missed this announcement (God Bless You) you didn’t notice that Michaels has a production company with partner Charlie Sheen. What!?! The movie is the story of his life starting in Pittsburgh and then…you know what, I can’t do this. This is not a good idea. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Sisters Doll

During my weekly surf for new bands, videos, and porn I sometimes come across something that forces me to look deeper and say, “Is this for real?” This was my reaction when stumbling upon Sisters Doll. I still don’t have a definitive answer other than this band lies somewhere in between Cinderella, Alice Cooper, The Backstreet Boys, and Steel Panther. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Evil Eyes

This week a classic new vs. old video showdown; on one side we have Aerosmith, the other side, The Last Vegas. Aerosmith is famous for a career that spans four decades and now Steven Tyler’s (yawn) work on American Idol as a judge. The Last Vegas are a new sleaze rock band that put a unique spin on their videos (and songs) by incorporating horror and humor when possible. SPOILER ALERT: No losers here today! More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Bret Michaels Is Back

Okay, so he never really left, that was just a dream. Poison front man Bret Michaels (Poison) has released a brand new video for his new single “Get Your Rock On”, featuring Phil Collen (Def Leppard) and Sal Coz (My Darkest Days). The video was filmed during Michaels' 2011/2012 solo tour. "Get Your Rock On" is the title track from Bret's upcoming solo album of the same name. The single is available on iTunes along with a cover of Poison’s “Nothing But A Good Time”, featuring former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley and Chickenfoot bassist Michael Anthony. So, is it just me or is Bret Michaels trying to become the “Kevin Bacon Six Degrees” of eighties rockers? More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Just Like Charlie Sheen

Earlier this week American Dog gave fans a taste of their new album, and now they have released a Rob Kern directed video for the debut single "Just Like Charlie Sheen." The track appears on American Dog's sixth studio album, "Poison Smile," due for release on June 8th via Colonial Canine in North America and Bad Reputation in Europe.

It was just over a year ago when Charlie Sheen took over the news claiming "tiger blood and Adonis DNA." Sheen ranted to anyone who would listen while sitting in smoked filled rooms figuring out how to get the movie Major League 3 made. Along with his two porn star girlfriends (Charlie has since been inducted into The Wilt Chamberlin Hall of Fame – Gene Simmons is the only other member) Sheen went on tour and somehow got a new television deal. Should Sheen be looking for a soundtrack to his life (or Major League 3) he may want to give American Dog a ring.

The video shows the band members dressed as Charlie’s characters from Platoon, Major League, and Two and Half Men. There is also a "girl" in heavy red lipstick that is both disturbing and VERY HIGH on the comedy scale. The song is typical American Dog, very course and very high energy blues. This band is big with the biker crowd which makes sense given Charlie Sheen seems like he may be appreciated in this group as well. It would have been nice to see a "Bud Fox" character and maybe a reference to Blue Star airlines would have been nice. Still, this video is entertaining and the song will play well at the Hamburg Harley Days Event in Germany and the Rock and Blues Custom Show in England.

The Rockstar Ramblings: Circle of Life

This week a group of reunited glam rockers, a band that has a “Fever,” and finally the return of Juliet’s Vice and their latest video.

Reunited New York rockers Grimm Jack explore the Hollywood lifestyles of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and the other West Coast tabloid queens for the single “Damned.” The track appears on the band's recent three-song EP of the same name. Immediately we are greeted with “Lemmy” style cranium accessories and liberal use of “Sunset Strip” and “Hollywood” in their lyrics. This song would have been perfect back in the day if Hillbilly Jim and The Junkyard Dog had they ever wrestled as part of a WWF Wrestlemania event. Of course, if I remember correctly, both of these guys were “good guys” so that could never happen, but if it had (and this song was around) it would have been a perfect.
