Even more exciting: Rose was said to be teaming up with former bandmate and songwriting partner Izzy Stradlin. The promo on the rock station's website promised a "three-hour set," with the $20 tickets limited to one per customer.

Corey Clark, a 24-year-old former contestant, is claiming that he had a "secret affair" with the 42-year-old judge from the hit show, according to the new issue of Globe magazine. Clarke reportedly is claiming that he had sex with Abdul in the guest room of her house, that she paid some of his expenses and promised to fund his career to the tune of $2 million, and that she made him vow to keep their relationship a secret. The allegations are reportedly from a book proposal that Clark has been shopping to publishers.

"We are going to put out another studio album," Neil says. "Then we'll take a little time off, and then we'll probably tour in support of that album."
Neil suggests Crue might keep going out of a sense of duty to rock 'n' roll. He can't find anything good on the radio anymore.
"I don't listen to anything (recorded) today," he says. "There's nothing today that inspires me. There's no true rock 'n' roll bands anymore. There's all pre-fab boy bands and girl bands." [see full story for a lot more]- Click Here for the Full Story
