Snoop Hot Doggs
Aversion reports: My hot dog has a first name, it's S-N-O-O-P.

A**hole Rose
Blabbermouth reports: La Voz del Interior On Line conducted an interview with former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler prior to Adler's appearance in Córdoba, Argentina last week. Several excerpts from the chat follow (translated from Spanish by Xozy):

Q: Are you in contact with your ex-bandmates?

Adler: "Yes, with Slash. With Izzy too. I don't see Axl though. I don't see '---hole'."

Q: And "Chinese Democracy", the album Axl did with the new version of the band?

Adler: "Do you know anyone who has heard it?"

Q: No.

Adler: "No one did. I know he recorded a couple of songs [over a period of] several years, until someone from the company came in and thought they sucked. I would say to '---hole', 'If we got together again, not only we'd have a great time but we'd also make lots of money'. But the truth is that it's been fifteen years since I last saw him."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Paris Crash
hecklerspray reports: Starved of the limelight, Paris Hilton did the only she she could - she got her car all smashed up in a needless road accident. We'd be impressed, if only Lindsay Lohan hadn't done the exact same thing last month.

Paris was in the passenger seat of her $162,000 Bentley, as her latest boyfriend Stavros Niarchos attempted to drive the car out of an LA parking lot teaming with Paparazzi early on Wednesday morning. With a jumper over his head. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

No Ozzy Bio
Contact Music reports: BLACK SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE will never write an autobiography about his crazed rock 'n' roll career, because he can't remember any of if.

Deicide Pulls a Stapp?
The Gauntlet reports: On Friday, November 4 DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton put on an embarrassing peformance during the first night of the Aalborg Metal Festival in Aalborg, Denmark. 

PowerMetal.dk observed Benton's distasteful act: "Next up is this evening's headliner, DEICIDE. As I write these lines, I'm still shocked by the embarrassing performance of Glen Benton. 

"Benton not only decides to begin the gig before scheduled, he is also obviously hammered and/or stoned out of his mind. This turns out to be if not the, then one of the most embarrassing performances I've been witness to, as Benton babbles about him getting rid of the two Nazis, the Hoffman brothers, about the pain he went through, and in between these rants, he does his best to insult the crowd.

Used Vs MCR
punkbands reports: The Used's Bert McCracken has officially crossed two names off his Christmas list: President George W. Bush and My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. It's really no surprise that Bush won't be getting so much as a card from the Used lead singer, thanks mostly to the ongoing war in Iraq ("It's f---ing bullsh--," McCracken opined), but Way ... well, that's a bit of a shock. It wasn't that long ago the two were exchanging verses on a charity version of the Queen/ David Bowie classic "Under Pressure" (see "My Chemical Romance Cover 'Under Pressure,' Plan 'Big Rock' LP"). But those days are ancient history now, according to McCracken. Just don't expect him to explain the reason why.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
