Kid Vs Stapp
TMZ reports: Kid Rock blames Scott Stapp for losing a sex video showing them with several strippers, but appreciates Stapp for one thing. "What perfect timing," Rock told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. "I got a record coming up ... Maybe I should thank him."

Still, Rock (aka Robert Ritchie) has fired back against Stapp's claim that the tape was stolen, saying the former Creed singer filmed the tape, which was made in Rock's motor home in 1999, and is responsible for losing it.

"He's the idiot because it's out," the 35-year-old Rock said. "I'm holding him responsible."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Punk Bomb Scare
punkbands reports: A seemingly innocuous This Bike is a Pipe Bomb sticker was enough to put Ohio University on high alert this morning. Apparently, the sticker, placed - appropriately enough - on a bike, was sufficient to get both campus police and the bomb squad involved. According to local media, university police found a nondescript mountain bike with the Plan-It X act's sticker on it, and took it literally. The school closed four buildings, police blocked streets around the Oasis restaurant, the fire department brought in off-duty firefighters, and the Columbus fire department's bomb squad was called in. The bomb experts attacked the bike with a high-pressure spray of water, then pried it open with a hydraulic tool and found no bomb inside. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

GNR 3CD Set?
antiMusic reports: Will the long delayed Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy be a triple CD release? Axl reportedly told Jayme Peyton (Big Damn Band) at an after show party at the Roxy that it would be. 

Rose attended the Derek Truck show at the Roxy on Feb 23rd in which the Indiana based Big Damn Band opened. "(Rose) heard us say that it was my birthday, and he came over and bought me a couple of shots of Patron (tequila)," Jayme said according to a Indy Star Blog report. "I thought that was real nice."

But Rose also had another gift for Jayme. "Jayme says the party eventually moved to Trucks' tour bus, where Rose produced a CD and previewed some of 'Chinese Democracy' -- which the singer said will be sold as a 3-disc collection," reports David Lindquist on his blog.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
