Lemmy Statue Unveiled At The Rainbow Bar & Grill

After much build-up, the West Hollywood bar/Lemmy Kilmister’s favorite haunt Rainbow Bar & Grill unveiled their new tribute statue of Lemmy, and frankly, IT’S GLORIOUS!

Slash Lowers Asking Price For House By $1.5M

In the market for 7 bedroom/9 bathroom mansion?  Check out the Beverly Hills home Slash used to share with his ex-wife!  It’s been reduced by $1.5M and is only up for sale at $9.5M!  It’s practically a steal! (Check out photos here.)

TMZ notes that the home has been “stripped of most of its rock ‘n’ roll qualities,” which is a fancy way of saying it’s less “gothy.” There is, however, still a stripper pole in the “entertainment room,” which we assume is load-bearing and the house would crumble without it.



Tornado Happens Outside KISS Show…

…And the show goes on, after a bit of a pause.  (Please, it would take more than a tornado to stop KISS from performing/collecting all that sweet merchandise money.)

Gene Simmons tweeted about the weather event last night.  Good thing everyone is okay!
