Great White Fire Trial
Blabbermouth reports: The owners of a nightclub where 100 people were killed in a 2003 fire are scheduled to go to trial Sept. 30 to determine whether they are able to pay tens of thousands of dollars to the families of workers killed in the blaze, a judge said Tuesday.

If the trial starts as scheduled, it would be the first stemming from the deadly blaze at The Station in West Warwick.

State Workers' Compensation Court Judge Bruce Morin set the trial date for brothers Jeffrey and Michael Derderian, who say they don't have the money to fully pay $180,000 in workers compensation claims. Earlier this year, Morin ordered them to pay death benefits for the four employees killed, payments to the children of two workers, and penalties and legal fees.

According to a source cited in the report, it started in the VIP area of the concert hall where Bach twice asked the Philadelphia Daily News source to move because he/she had been blocking his view.

Bach, a regular on the chick-friendly show, reportedly quickly turned away while Sebastian's "lovely companion" gave the Philadelphia Daily News source "a death stare."

C.C.: "I'm Innocent"
KNAC reports: Poison guitarist, C.C. DeVille issued this statement to Metal Sludge, regarding his Sunday night arrest in Los Angeles:

"I regret that this has happened. I just want everyone to understand that the first write up, by Ms. Malone was false. The facts are: I was in my home with my new girlfriend. Ms. Malone, whom I dated previously, entered my home. She attacked me and I did not retaliate. I do not hit women and I do not believe in violence! Ms. Malone has done this before. She made up false charges and I was arrested. She later dropped the charges. My girlfiend, in an effort to pull Ms. Malone from me, was then attacked with a chair. She sustained several cuts and bruises. Once Ms. Malone was close to the door, I pushed her out and she left. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
