Fans Launch Petition For Vince Neil to Lose Weight!
Remember back in the 90’s when Vince Neil and Axl Rose were both in shape, well times have changed and they are both not in shape today.
Earlier this week it was revealed by Motley Crue singer Vince Neil that he was undergoing surgery revealing to fans “Hand Surgery Today!! #vikingdisease #Dupuytrenscontracture #nashville.”
A petition has launched by fans to help Neil lose weight ahead of the group’s reunion tour sometime next year. At the time of writing this almost 1500 people have signed the petition. The petition proposes that Neil get help from legendary WCW and WWE wrestler, and actor, Diamond Dallas Page with his DDP Yoga that has helped wrestling icons Jake Roberts and Scott Hall get back in shape.
The Change.org petition states, “Get Vince Neil in shape with DDP Yoga.” It goes on to say, “Mötley Crüe just announced their new tour and we want Vince Neil to deliver the show of a lifetime! But he needs to get healthy and get in shape first. That’s why we’d like to petition Vince Neil to get help with DDP Yoga from WWE legend, Diamond Dallas Page! He’s on board, now we just need Vince to agree!- Bailey and Southside, Rock 100.5 FM Atlanta.” Will Vince take the ‘Diamond Cutter’ and ‘feel the bang’ with DDP? We’ll have to wait and see, but he seemed in good spirits ahead of his surgery.
Motley Crue are set to tour with Def Leppard and Poison next summer, with rumorsthat Motley Crue will make in excess of $3 million per show, with Def Leppard getting $2 million and Poison getting a few hundred grand, Let’s hope Vince get’s things together and gets back into shape.
Kid Rock Gets in Deep Water Over Drunken Rant
Poser Kid Rock is no stranger to controversy and .TMZ got their hands on a video of the musician going on a drunken rant in Nashville, Tenn. about how much he can’t stand TV icon Oprah Winfrey along with some other TV celebrities..
According to TMZ, the video was taken at his own Nashville establishment, Kid Rock’s Big Expletive Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse. “I’m not a bad guy,” Rock is heard stating at the beginning of the video, followed by a laugh from someone in the audience. “I’m just an honest guy that says, ‘Hey, I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar.’”
“Sorry, mom,” he added, after blasting the TV hosts by shouting obscenities. “They’re like, ‘Hey, you’re expletive racist.’ And I’m like, ‘You’re expletive weird.’ You call your people, I’ll call mine.”
As he continued on with his tirade, swaying around the stage and also throwing TV host Kathie Lee Gifford’s name into the mix of slurs, members of the audience can be heard yelling back at the star, calling him racist. “He’s racist. Look at him, he’s blacked out drunk and drunk as expletive,” a woman from the audience yelled. Watch for yourself below.
Kid Rock sang on Slash’s solo record in 2010 on the track “I Hold On”and performed with Guns N’ Roses in 2006, but would later tell politically correct radio host Howard Stern that Axl Rose was upset with him following his appearance on Slash’s record.
Ozzy Osbourne’s New Album Came Together Very Quickly
Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith appeared on Ozzy Osbourne’s Latest Album Ordinary Man, playing on all the tracks. Andrew Watt, who played guitar with the duo gave a new interview with Billboard the guitarist reveals how his collaboration with Osbourne for the upcoming Ordinary Man album came about.
“I was like, that would be amazing, but can I do this? I picked up the phone and called up Chad Smith,” recalled Watt. “I said, ‘Dude, Ozzy just asked me to make an album for him. Are you down to do it?’ And he said, ‘Are you kidding me? When?’ Then I called up Duff McKagan from Guns ‘n Roses and he said, ‘Are you kidding me? When?’”
According to Watt, he, Smith and McKagan worked up their Ozzy album in four days, presented it to Osbourne who called it “cool,” then had Osbourne call the next day to ask when they could start writing.
“I sound like I’m making this up, but he comes over the next day, and we made Ozzy’s entire album from top to bottom — all music, guitar solos, all vocals written — in four weeks,” said Watt. “It’s the proudest of anything I’ve ever been, because it brought the 12-year-old kid out of me again. Don’t get me wrong, I love the pop music that I make, but this is what I feel like I was born to do: play rock guitar. I got to be ’ Randy Rhoads in 2019.”
In an interview that happened earlier this year Osbourne had high praise for his latest work. “I’ve made a new album and it’s helped me get back on track. I was just lying in my own self-pity for months. It’s the greatest album I’ve done,” said the singer.
Ozzy added, “If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here forever.’ I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying.
The singer concluded of his time with Watt, “The album was all finished in four weeks. I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
To date, Osbourne has released the songs “Under the Graveyard” and “Straight to Hell,” with the latter featuring a guest spot from McKagan’s Guns N’ Roses bandmate Slash. Ozzy’s new album is due out sometime in January as no official release date has been revealed yet.
