Gene's Legal Kissoff
TMZ reports: A kiss-and-tell lawsuit against rocker Gene Simmons has been settled out of court. Simmons' former girlfiend filed the suit against the KISS [bassist] in January 2005 in the wake of a VH1 rockumentary about the band. In the show, Simmons brags about having sex with 4600 women (saying "no woman was off limits") and calls himself a "24-hour whore." Georgeann Walsh Ward sued him for slander after her photo was featured 11 times in the show. Ward claimed she was portrayed as a "sex-addicted nymphomaniac." 

In a joint statement released Wednesday, Simmons and Ward said they reached an "amicable resolution" of the case. The statement said Ward received no money from Simmons and acknowledged that he had no role in putting the show together.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Sum 41 Jr?
PR reports: "…irresistible pop punk hooks..." and "…rock and roll beauty…" are two of the ways the music of Canada's THE FLAIRS has been described. The band (Dawn on vox, Jen on drums, Gillian on lead guitar, Ryan on bass) has been called "A sea of talent…" and they've set out to prove it with the release of SHUT UP AND DRIVE, their latest Pacific/Warner Music Canada CD. Recommended tracks: "Under My Skin," "18 & Life," "Stinger."

Taking their own advice, THE FLAIRS are motoring across America in support of the album, playing venues from West to East before heading back up North to their Vancouver home…but not really shutting up, as the band members will be quite vocal and verbal on stage and in interviews; the drive part, however, is real!
