Reports are flooding in that Richie Sambora has quit the current Bon Jovi tour. Some websites are reporting that he's quit the band but we're not so sure about that. Richie has battled substance abuse problems in the past but there is no current indication that that is the issue. Here is the official statement from the Bon Jovi website...
Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg. All shows will go on as scheduled.
Chicago or Philly probably as close as they'll get...
Every band/artist swears their live releases are really recorded live. Then they often admit much later that there might have been a few cosmetic overdubs and that no 'live' album is totally live. Give this video a watch and tell me if you think this has been 'fixed' in the studio. Oddly enough the camera is never on him during the vocal highpoints of the song.

Scott Ian has all the luck. He gets to be in Anthrax, gets to grow the most awesome chin beard and gets to host Fangoria's Blood & Guts. No fair!
The Osbournes are dropping property. Times must be tough. Take a look at this unbelievable place. I'd never leave if I owned this house.
I've done far too many ill advised and tasteless things in my life to point the finger so I'll let you decide. Make sure you hit the comment box below with your thoughts.
David Lee Roth was on the Australian version of the Today Show. The host asks him if he was bothered when he was replaced by Sammy Hagar. Dave's answer is kinda surprising considering all the mudslinging that went on back in the day. Do you believe him? I don't.
Also here's a photo of Eddie Van Halen working on a new song with LL Cool J for his new album.

And this just in... really cool montage of Van Halen in the movies. Enjoy!
