Wishing Dee some good quality and healing rest of his pipes. As Dee himself describes it, it’s just an “inconvenience” and with some vocal rest and meds, he’ll be fine. It can’t be all that screaming “IF IT AIN’T METAL … IT’S CRAP” can it??
The release date for Bret Michael’s new solo album, Good Songs & Great Friends, will now be June 11th. It was originally slated for March 26th.
Congrats to Bret’s bandmate, Poison drummer Rikki Rockett, and his wife, Melanie Martel, on the recent birth of their daughter, Lucy Sky Rockett.
Lita Ford was recently interviewed by MetalAssault.com about, among other things, her thoughts on the Revolver/Guitar World Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider that happened back in January. “I enjoyed being there…But I think the whole concept behind that roast is terrible,” said Lita. “I don’t agree with it, and I personally hope it goes straight into the toilet. That’s my opinion.”
She added, “I don’t like bagging on my friends. I don’t like calling people names. It’s terrible! They’re turning us on ourselves. They’re turning us against each other, and it’s sickening. It’s such a f***ed up show. I really had a hard time with it. I could hardly speak. I was really very uncomfortable with it.” She continued, “I knew it was something where you make fun of somebody, but I didn’t realize how extreme it was and how terrible it was. They turn you on your friends, so you’re bagging on your friends! To me, that’s just not what I’m about. I don’t like it. It might be good for some people, but for me it was a nightmare and I will definitely never do that one again, nor I think will they have me back.”

That’s Sammy Hagar with original Montrose bandmates Bill Church (bass) and Denny Carmassi (drums). Captioned Sammy on his Facebook page, “Denny and Bill in town. We recorded some new music last week. It was amazing. We still have that Montrose chemistry. Keep ya all posted.” OK – who looks the best here? It must be all that Cabo Wabo tequila!!
