On December 18th, original Faster Pussycat members Taime Downe and Brent Muscat will reunite to perform several of the band's classic songs with Brent's current group, Las Vegas mainstay Sin City Sinners. The show will take place at Vinyl (inside the Hard Rock Hotel) in Las Vegas.
It's all for Sin City Sinners' annual toy drive, with all guests being asked to bring a new and unwrapped toy to be collected for Toys 4 Tots to make sure a less fortunate child has a present for Christmas. The two-day event, dubbed "48 Hours Of Sin", will also feature appearances by Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns, Robert Mason of Warrant, Frank Dimino of Angel, Oz Fox of Stryper and more.
Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster or the Hard Rock Hotel box office. The first 100 people will have the option to purchase a two-day pass for just $9.23.
Sin City Sinners are Todd Kerns (Slash), Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat), Rob Cournoyer (Raging Slab) and Zach Throne (The Heights). In 2010 Sin City Sinners released two CDs of original music, 'Exile On Fremont Street' and 'Broken Record', and in 2011 won the prestigous 'Best In Vegas' readers poll from The Las Vegas Review Journal. On November 25th, 2011, The Sinners released their thrid album 'A Sinners Christmas' which included guest appearances by George Lynch, Ron Keel, Slim Jim Phantom, Jizzy Pearl, Pete Loran, Louie Merlino, Frank Dimino and Sammy Serious.

The band promises no two shows will ever be the same, but the one thing they all have in common is there is no cover charge to attend.
"This has always been the goal, we worked hard to brand Sin City Sinners into not only the busiest rock band in Vegas, but the most sought after" said Jason Green, the bands manager.
The band also has no plans on changing their line up of Special Guest Appearences, artists scheduled to jam in the next 30 days include: Sebastian Bach, Bruce Kulick (KISS), Mark Kendall (Great White), Ron Keel, Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, Rough Cutt) Oz Fox (Stryper) & Frank Dimino (Angel)

Rod Stewart to release memoirs on October 23rd, Winners of The Colisseum at Las Vegas poster contest
Following in the ever growing list of rockers releasing their memoirs, Rod Stewart will be releasing his forthcoming autobiography on October 23rd. The 368 page memoir will be called 'Never a Dull Moment,' the same title as the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's 1972 solo album, and will feature a cover photo taken by his wife, Penny Lancaster-Stewart.
Rod's ex-wife (and still good pal) Alana Hamilton Stewart is also publishing a book, called 'Rearview Mirror,' and it will be released around the same tme as Rod's. Alana, once married to George Hamilton, says she has total recall, but she’s not so sure Rod does. Alana kept extremely detailed journals over the years, but her book is not a tell-all. It wil chronicle her life from poverty in Texas to life in Hollywood, and her steadfast friendship with Farrah Fawcett through her death. Alana also recently became a grandmother with her daughter Kimberly (with Rod) recently having had a baby with actor Benicio del Toro. The two were not a couple, but Alana says that Benicio has been "an excellent father" and "very devoted."
TalentHouse sponsored a contest for budding artists and Rod Stewart fans to design a new poster for Rod's stints at The Colisseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Here's the winning entry from Damien Geminard, followed by the runner ups Scotty Fournier, Hugo Peres and Mel Amorena. Quality work by all!

KISS News: ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’ returns May 28, ‘Love Gun’ 3D Archival Etched Glass Frame now available, CNN Monster Golf report, Tommy Thayer hanging with Sugar Ray Leonard and Bruce Jenner
Gene Simmons returns for an all-new season of A&E’s hit series 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels,' with a special one-hour episode on Monday, May 28 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. The longest running celebrity family-based series on television (now in season 7), begins with a shocking moment for America’s most traditional, non-traditional family. After going through their most tumultuous year of their 28-year history, Gene and Shannon finally tied the knot. However, that doesn’t mean all their troubles have magically gone away.
In what promises to be the most explosive season ever, Shannon decides she wants to adopt a child, and the entire family battles over her decision. Gene, Nick and Sophie are against the adoption, and for the first time in her life, Sophie is at drastic odds with her mother. Meanwhile, Gene is trying to learn to be a better husband but is still battling with his rock-star ways as Nick is striving to emulate his father’s good qualities, yet finding it hard to avoid the bad ones. From the family’s adoption battle, to Gene and Shannon’s honeymoon in Africa (where Shannon has an ulterior motive planned), to Gene on tour for the first time as a married man, fans will have an all-access pass as America’s favorite rock family unfolds personal layers of their lives that they have yet to reveal.
Last season 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' had its most watched season ever, with an average of 1.8 million total viewers per premiere episode with Gene and Shannon’s engagement and wedding episodes representing the #1 and #2 telecasts ever for the series.
The official KISS Love Gun 3D Archival Etched Glass Frame, by GDC-GameDevCo Ltd. in collaboration with Artist Daniel Parry is now available.

Here's a recent CNN Money video report on Gene and the addition of KISS Monster Mini Golf in Las Vegas to the KISS empire:
While we're on the golf kick, here's a photo of guitarist Tommy Thayer with none other than Olympic and sport icons Sugar Ray Leonard and Bruce Jenner at the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic on Monday (May 7) at Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake, CA. The Golf Classic supports the George Lopez Foundation. Other celebrities that attended the tournament included George Lopez, Eva Longoria, Anthony Anderson, Kenny G, Andy Garcia, Cheryl Ladd, Don Cheadle, Joe Pesci and more, with KISS donating a Paul Stanley Washburn guitar autographed by the band for an auction that evening at the post-tournament dinner.
