A new reality show 'Ex-Wives Of Rock' chronicling the highs and lows of the lives of four women who have led the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll life... and have survived to reinvent themselves premiered on August 31rd on the Canadian network Slice. The show follows video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon), Cherry Pie rock goddess Bobbie Brown (ex-wife of Warrant frontman Jani Lane), drummer and Tommy Lee’s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of Scorpions drummer James Kottak) and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil).
'Ex-Wives of Rock' is co-produced by the former Femme Fatale frontwoman Lorraine Lewis and narrated by Shannon Tweed (wife of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons).
Throughout each episode, you will see all sides of the four ex-wives: the good, the bad and the ugly. You’ll witness family drama, messed up love lives and friendships crash and burn. We’ll see the glamorous red carpet events, the seedy rock clubs, the fabulous hotel lunches and the quiet dinners at home.
Being 'hair band groupies' is far in the past for these now late-thirties, early-forties ladies; but that doesn’t mean their rock ‘n’ roll days are over. Their journey begins where one life has ended and another one has just begun. They are Mothers. Business Owners. Partiers. And ladies of the L.A. lifestyle.
Meet each of the ladies and get a preview clip of the latest episode below:

Motley Crue and KISS kicked off 'The Tour' on Friday night (July 20) in Bristow, VA. at Jiffy Lube Live, with both for the performing sets that were predominately all hits. That is to be expected, but I was hoping for at least one or two tracks that they either haven't performed live in quite awhile, or something from an early album. Motley Crue did perform their new single 'Sex,' which you can watch below along with Tommy Lee's drum solo to the song 'Love Rollercoaster.'

The brand new song from Motley Crue, is available for free download for 24 hours only at Motley.com. So get on it! "Sex" is the first studio track from the band since 'Saints Of Los Angeles' in 2008. The song was recorded at drummer Tommy Lee's studio called The Atrium in Calabasas, California.
Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has taken flight training classes with the possibility of receiving a pilot’s license. While that may not be the greatest idea considering his history in automobiles, he apparently has found a way to make a buck out of it, or at least get the training for free as it will be part of a TV show called 'The Aviators.' Vince will appear in the series’ third season, which premieres this fall on PBS. Check out pics from his training here: www.facebook.com
Tommy Lee's recent Facebook post asking fans to stop requesting pictures seemed ludicrous at the time, but apparently there is a reason for it. Although I didn't agree with the post, it was written in response to an incident where Tommy was asked for a photo when picking up his deceased mother's ashes. Fuse TV was talking to Tommy about the upcoming KISS/Motley Crue tour, when he mentioned the incident.
Lee started off the story with a warning, asking Joe Lynch of Fuse TV, "Are you ready for this? This is going to fucking freak you out." Then he dove in: "My mother passed away recently," Lee explains. "I was picking up her ashes to take them home with me to do a service for my mother. And so I'm at the mortuary, I've got my mom's ashes in my right hand, and my girlfriend, I'm holding her hand with my left hand, and we're walking out. And the fucking lady, the receptionist, goes, 'Oh my god, can I take a picture with you?' And I looked and her and went [takes a deep breath], 'I'm sorry, but I'd rather not.'"
And if that wasn't classless enough, the receptionist went further.
"Then she was like, 'Are you sure?' And I couldn't even believe it—she asked me if I was sure. I'm fucking standing there with my mom's ashes and it's not the fucking happiest day on the planet for me. I couldn't believe it. I go, 'Okay, that's officially the most fucked up thing that has ever happened to me.' I called the manager and said, 'You're not going to believe what just happened. I don't expect you to fire her or anything like that, but that was the most disrespectful bullsh*t I've ever experienced in my life.'
"I sat in the car, and I'm shaking, and my girlfriend goes, 'I'm so sorry honey,' and I was speechless. I didn't even know what to say. I couldn't believe a human being just did that."
I get now why Tommy was irritated by people asking for a picture after that incident. I just wish he would have mentioned it in his original post, then we all would have seen why, and it would have squashed all the negativty surrounding the comments. That is fucked up though.
