Danko Jones: Neil Peart Wrote Me Back!
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Bobby Orr never let Danko down Growing up in Canada, most boys tend to fall under at least one of two categories: a) Hockey Fans, and/or b) Rush Fans. It just comes with the citizenship kit. I definitely fall under the latter. Being that I play in a band for a living may have something to do with it; the fact that the house I grew up in is in Rush's "Subdivisions" video might have something to do with it, too. There's just something about the band that evokes automatic fandom if you're born above the 49th parallel. Maybe it's the musicianship mixed with their artistry that mirrors the Canadian experience of rigorism and resourcefulness dealing with the country's harsh climate that Canucks identify with. Or maybe it's just 'cause they Rock. When it comes to sports, I tendered my resignation as a hockey fan years ago. As much as I always pick the Maple Leafs when it comes to playing video games, these days I only know who won the Stanley Cup long after the playoffs are over ...

Painful opener for Raiders' Ron Bartell
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Painful opener for Raiders' Ron Bartell On Monday night, he got burned deep on a 46-yard pass from Philip Rivers to Robert Meachem that set up a game-tying field goal in the first quarter. Minutes later, Bartell walked into the locker room with an elbow injury and didn't return. "Their offensive line did a nice job protecting him," Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. In the second quarter, he got his first touch of the year - yup, he had zero touches in the preseason - and made a bad toss on an intended reverse to Taiwan Jones. KISS frontman Gene Simmons drew the biggest crowd, posing for photographers with longtime girlfriend and new wife Shannon Tweed. Simmons, who flashed his signature three-finger salute while singing the national anthem, was upstaged by rapper Ice Cube, who appeared on a stadium walkway for a brief pregame concert.

'Ex-Wives of Rock': Hello, Guilty Pleasure
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
As an ardent fan of fine programming such as "Rock of Love," "Rock of Love Bus" and "Married to Rock," I was more than a little excited about watching the first episode of the latest addition to the rock slut canon, "Ex-Wives of Rock." The show, as its name suggests, follows the lives of four former rock spouses: Athena Lee (ex of Scorpions drummer James Kottak, sister of Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee); Sharise Neil (ex of Motley Crue singer Vince Neil); Bobbie Brown (ex of Warrant singer Jani Lane) and "Blue" (ex of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon). Lost yet? Don't worry. Narrator Shannon Tweed walks viewers through a handy chart in the first episode, as well as plenty of nostalgic photos of the ladies in their smokin' hot '80s prime. (Watch out for some amazing '80s wedding photos with some of the biggest hair you'll ever see.) Back in the '80s, these four women were the shiz. They were blonde rock video goddesses who had their pick of the hair metal litter on the Sunset Strip. Now ...

Gene Simmons' Reality Show Canceled Or Not? Shannon Tweets Bad News, Then Takes It Down
Perez Hilton - over 4 years
Wait, what just happened?? Shannon Tweed's mysterious tweets have us totally confused about the future of her reality show. Tuesday, Gene Simmons' wife and Gene Simmons Family Jewels co-star, announced the series had been canned. She tweeted: “I just got word that our show Gene Simmons Family Jewels will not be picked up”. BUT.... after she posted it, the tweet was removed from her account! Why did she delete it?? A&E has yet to comment to the status of their long-running rock reality show, so fans have no idea WTF is going on! Our best guess is either: 1) The network told Shannon to STFU, or 2) Something changed, and the show WILL be coming back to air after all. For now, the future of Gene Simmons Family Jewels remains a mystery!

Lesleyann Coker: Simon Cowell Bets Big on Britney Spears and Demi Lovato for X Factor Season 2
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Simon Cowell is making a bold bet Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will increase viewers and propel the second season of Fox's reality competition, X Factor, into a ratings hit. Before a single episode of the British import aired in the U.S. last fall, Cowell, its creator and executive producer, predicted it would draw 20 million viewers and best American Idol, Cowell's former series. Instead, X Factor ended its first season with a respectable, though not spectacular, 12.67 million viewers. It finished the 2011-2012 television season as the 19th highest rated program, well behind American Idol's second place finish with 19.81 viewers. Though Cowell ate humble pie after his inflated ratings predictions, his wallet didn't suffer. After signing a partnership with Sony to tether the show to his own production company, Syco Entertainment, Cowell raked in $42 million. With so much at stake, it was a no brainer Fox would bring the show back for a second season, albeit one ...

Gene Simmons’ Daughter Auditions for ‘X Factor’ on Father’s Day
Celebrity News & Style - over 4 years
Gene Simmons’ daughter — Sophie Simmons — flew to San Francisco Sunday to audition for the “X Factor.” She opted to audition on Father’s Day, but that didn’t stop the two from spending time together. Naturally there was criticism that the 18-year-old would rather audition for “X Factor” judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Britney Spears, and Demi Lovato instead of spending time with her famous father. Hey, fame comes at a price and he would understand that! Sophie Simmons reportedly told the panel of judges, “This isn’t about my dad. This is about my audition.” She made it clear it wasn’t personal and that she wanted to be there for furthering her career as a singer. It’s not known if Sophie made the cut in her “X Factor” audition, but talent certainly runs in her family. As most children of Hollywood stars feel, Simmons wants to get ahead on her own merit, not because of who her father is. Gene flew out to San Francisco on a private jet to visit his hard-working daughter. She obvi ...

Gene and Shannon Simmons to Adopt?
Beleb Dirty Laundry - over 4 years
Regular viewers of the A&E Reality TV series, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, will know that Gene and his wife, Shannon Tweed-Simmons, have been through a lot. Last season, the series went from comedy to high drama as Shannon threatened to leave Gene after 27 years unless he stopped cheating. Gene sought counseling and eventually, he proposed marriage to Shannon and she accepted. So you would think that Shannon would be happy now? Nope! Now she wants to have another child, even adopting one if need be. The problem is, Gene, nor the children, Nick and Sophie, think this is a good idea. Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed-Simmons are still newlyweds, but are now considering adoption. Image Credit: Chris Hatcher / PR Photos. Now, last season, I was on Shannon′s side. She deserved to be treated better by Gene. He does have a lot of issues and they are still seeing their therapist, Dr. Ann Wexler. So one would think that Dr. Wexler might be more inclined to cool Shannon′s jets on this ad ...
