So I am sure you rmemeber that early this year it was all over the news that Ozzy had fallen off the wagon.
Well Sharon (a much of a slave driver she is) stuck to her guns and took off.
At the time it struck me as being a little harsh but lets face it... Ozzy has been through a lot and put the family through a lot because of his "problems"!
Just found this on TMZ a few minutes ago!
Check it out!
Ozzy Osbourne is officially out of Sharon's dog house ... and has moved back in with his wife ... after convincing Sharon he's been drug and alcohol free for months, TMZ has learned.
It's a big step for the couple, considering they split earlier this year ... when Ozzy fell off the wagon.
Sharon insisted she wouldn't take Ozzy back until he cleaned himself up -- and to prove she meant business, she moved out of the family home and into the Beverly Hills Hotel.
But now, it seems Sharon's convinced Ozzy's winning the war with his demons ... because the two not only walked the red carpet together at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (and shared a kiss) ... they also went home together after the show.
We're told Sharon is determined to help Ozzy stay off the junk -- she's even hired a "sober team" to monitor the rock star 24/7 and help him steer clear of potential hazards.
Well I am sure you have heard the new STP song "Out Of Time" featuring Chester from Linkin Park.
And I dont think anyone was shcked to hear that STP let Weiland go (other than Weiland himself) But now the legal fun is about to start.
Check this out!
Scott Weiland says he wants millions of dollars as a fabulous parting gift from the lackeys in StoneTemple Pilots who conspired to boot him from the group.
TMZ broke the story ... STP sued Weiland, claiming he sabotaged its 20th anniversary tour by being chronically late for performances, missing promotional gigs and improperly using STP's name to promote his solo career.
Weiland has now filed a countersuit, accusing the 3 other members of secretly plotting his ouster. Weiland says it's particularly galling, rhetorically asking, "How do you expel a man from the band that he started, named, sang lead on every song, wrote the lyrics, and was the face of for twenty years?"
Weiland now wants to thwart the efforts of the remaining members to grab the STP name, asking that a judge formally dissolve the band partnership.
Weiland also wants a minimum of $7 mil in damages.
So sometimes I look at things in the US and think it is such a wast of time that these sort of things need to be even looked at.
Then something like this comes up.
What the hell man?
The governor of Jakarta, Indonesia, Joko Widodo, recently had to turn over his autographed METALLICA bass guitar to the government temporarily, while authorities determined whether the instrument was merely a gift or a violation of ethics rules. Widodo received the bass from METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, but had to give it up to the state within 30 days, according to laws regarding gifts to state officials.
According to Jakarta Globe, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has made the determination that the guitar is state property because it exceeded the Rp 300,000 limit for gifts and there was a mysterious note on the guitar, separate from Trujillo's message that said: "To Jokowi, keep playing that cool, funky bass." Jokowi is the governor's nickname.
"Because there is [a note on the guitar that reads] 'Giving Back,' which has different handwriting than Trujillo's [note]. There is someone else who added it. In Indonesian, the words could have a meaning of asking for something in return," Giri said.
Giri said that the KPK was deciding between two options of what to do with the bass. One proposal is to move it to a museum, while the other option is auctioning the bass through the Ministry of Finance.
"Jokowi can have it again but with a higher price [if he buys it at the auction]," he said.
Jokowi estimated that the guitar is worth around Rp 8 million (approximately $816). If the guitar is auctioned, people might bid billions of rupiah for the instrument.
Well I have said it for many years and and happy to say it again.
Thank you for making Rockfest so much fun.
We lucked out and had the best weather we have had in years.
You all kicked ass.
I cant say anymore.
Well it’s getting close now.
Less than 2 weeks to Rockfest 2013.
Many of you are calling in and asking what you can and can’t bring. What time a band will be taking the stage or at the autograph booth and many questions about the Rockfest wedding and how to go about getting in on that.
I can make it simple!
Everything is over at the Rockfest page.
Just click over and snoop around.
Hell, I have learned a few things myself over there!
And there is all the info on where to win tickets and you can even buy them over there.
See ya in 12 days!
Well looks like life has caught back up to Ozzy.Sure hope he can pull himself back together! Check this out. M Sharon Osbourne is in the business of tough love ... because she's NOT going to reconcile with hubby Ozzy Osbourne until he proves to her he'll be sober for the long haul.
Sources connected to the couple tell us ... even though Ozzy says he's been sober for 44 days ... it's not enough for her. She's been living with this most recent bout of drug and alcohol abuse for a year-and-a-half, and Sharon is saying 44 days doesn't make that go away.
Ozzy has admitted ... his boozing and drug use caused their split but he's confident Sharon will NOT end their 31-year marriage by filing for divorce.
Our sources say ... Sharon's intention is not to end the marriage, but she believes she has to make it clear to Ozzy once and for all ... she can't handle his substance abuse.
Sources familiar with the situation say there will be NO divorce. As one person put it, "They've been through hell and back together. They're not breaking up."
Found this today and for some reason I just see it as the start of a hell of a fight.I agree with DLR but think Ed will take this all wrong.Check it out!
M Asked about VAN HALENsingerDavid Lee Roth's recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine in which he said he wanted Anthony back in the band, the bassist said: "It was flattering to hear Dave talk like that. He never used to talk like that when we were all playing together. [laughs] But hey… I really don't know what to say to that. It was flattering that he said that. And, obviously, I'm the kind of guy that… water under the bridge. I don't hold any kind of grudges for anything, and you never know what will happen at anytime…. At this point in your life and career and whatever, the career aside, it's more about the friendship and just people. And if the music side of it, if that happens, if that comes about, all the better, but that's not what it's really about at this point."
During the Rolling Stone interview, Roth touched upon the touchy subject of Anthony replacing current bassist — and Eddie Van Halen's son — Wolfgang Van Halen, from here on out. "But Ed has his own vision, I'm assuming," Roth said. "We haven't really been able to speak about it and it's a disappointment, just as not having a chance for a reunion of the original band. Clearly, vocals are every bit as much a component of success as a rhythm section or a guitar solo. . . what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever — that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in EARTH, WIND & FIRE, as identifiable as the high voice in the BEACH BOYS. VAN HALENis an indelicate house blend of both — that's intentionally."
Not going to lie to you.
I am a old school 80's kid!
My second concert was Bon Jovi and Cinderella way back in the day and I have been a fan since!
Some of the new stuff I am not crazy about but still I would love to go see them next week.
But now I find this on TMZ today.
Read on and see what you think.
Richie Sambora is bailing on the Bon Jovi world tour because of "personal issues," but it has NOTHING to do with substance abuse ... it's all about a war that's exploded between Jon and Richie.
Sources directly connected to Bon Jovi tell TMZ ... tensions between Jon and Richie have been running high for years and it's finally erupted. One source tells us, "It's a classic Jagger/Richards blowup."
Our sources say part of the problem is that Jon constantly belittles Richie. But there's another part of the problem -- they're fighting over money.
Richie was a no-show at a Bon Jovi concert in Calgary last night, and yesterday he posted on the Bon Jovi website that he was pulling out because of "personal issues."
During the Calgary concert, Jon told the crowd, "I had two choices: pack up and go home or give you everything I got ... Richie Sambora won't be performing for a while. If there's ever a night I need you, it's tonight, Calgary!"
In the meantime, Richie's been spending personal time with his daughter -- the two were on vacation in Hawaii last week. We're told it was an 11-day trip filled with zip-lining, hikes, paddle boarding, and chilling at the pool.
So this year I (and the rest of the guys) have been getting a lot of calls on how to buy VIP tickets to Rockfest.
I have even heard of some people buying them for $100 a pop.
Well, if you are one of those people who have spent your hard earned money on them I hate to say it but you got screwed.
VIP tickets are not (and never have been) for sale.
So if someone offers to sell you some VIP tickets to Rockfest DO NOT BUY THEM!
THEY ARE FAKE AND WILL NOT GET YOU IN!
Just watching out for you.
Hope to see you at the show!
