Well, well, well.
I'm in Glam news overload today. Tommy Lee says Motley Crue is hitting the road July 4th. Nikki Sixx has responded to nasty allegations by former super producer Tom Werman. If this isn't enough, an autobiography by Bret Michaels is on the way.
Oh what is a Glam girl to do?
Let's tackle Bret's autobiography first. Simon and Schuster will release the book in the fall. Like most rock autobiographies, I expect Bret to have help with the writing. I won't lie: I am interested in learning about the "unknown" history of Poison - if there is such a thing. Plus, I am sure there will be multiple chapters revolving around all of Bret's conquests from the Look What the Cat Dragged In era...to Rock of Love. I wonder if Bret will share pictures of his wigs? At any rate, I predict a best-seller. I wonder if it's too soon to reserve a copy at my neighborhood Barnes and Noble?
Next order of business: the feud between Nikki Sixx and Tom Werman. The other day, producer cum bed-and-breakfast owner Tom Werman called The Heroin Diaries "totally deluded" and "stunningly inaccurate." Of course, this wasn't a verbal jab over a cell phone or even posted on a blog. Werman made sure his criticisms were known...in the New York Times.
If you haven't read the Heroin Diaries, let me explain. In the book, Nikki says Werman didn't do the work contracted while in the studio during the Shout and the Devil, Theatre of Pain and Girls, Girls, Girls sessions.
There's a funny part in the Heroin Diaries where Nikki talks about wanting to read Werman's day planner. He eventually takes a peek and sees the most mundane aspects of life, like going to the doctor or dentist.
Anyway, nobody puts Nikki in the corner, so he issued a response to Werman's negative attack:
The SIXX:AM tour is off (no surprise there) and Tom Werman has fired right back at Nikki. To read that response, go to the left of this page and click the Rock Confidential link.
