Legendary rocker Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN)'s autobiography, "Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock", will be released in paperback on March 13. It will include a new afterword about Hagar's experiences since the original book was released a year ago.

A two-and-a-half-minute video clip in which Hagar talks about the paperback edition of "Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock" can be seen below.

"Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock" debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times nonfiction hardcover best sellers list, appearing on the chart dated April 3, 2011. Hagar promoted the book's publication with major press interviews in New York City, as well as a two-week signing tour on both the East and West Coasts. The former VAN HALEN vocalist has been making news thanks to the book's outspoken commentary on both Eddie Van Halen and original VH frontman David Lee Roth, as well as Hagar's claims that he's met with alien beings.

"I just finished another chapter for it, because it's coming out in paperback and I didn't wanna just release the same book again," Hagar told the American Rock Scene last September. "And since that book came out and it went No. 1, it did a lot — it really changed things within me and with people around me. And some of my closer friends kind of had a weird response to the book and some people that I really didn't know — people that were almost, like… I don't wanna say 'enemies,' but people in the industry that maybe didn't respect me or give me any love or the time of day over the years — came in and said, 'Wow, I had no idea. Man, I have a whole different opinion of you.' So I wrote a new chapter about that; I just did it yesterday and it will be in the paperback [version of the book]. [It's] just about how being a rock star my whole life and then having a No. 1-selling book had a profound influence on my stature, as a human on this planet. . . There's only been two rock books, I guess, in history — Keith Richards and myself — that went to No. 1, so it got a lot of people's attention. I get a lot of phone calls through my agency or through my management, 'What do you wanna do next? We wanna be involved?' [Laughs] I used to go around knocking on doors. 'Hey, I wanna do this.' Now it's like, 'Hey, you wanna make a movie?', 'Hey, you wanna be in a TV show?' 'You wanna do this? 'You wanna do that?' It's interesting."

"Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock" was released on March 15, 2011 via It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Hagar provides readers with incredible behind-the-scenes stories from his multi-platinum career, including his rise as a solo artist and his eleven years with VAN HALEN, after the controversial departure of original lead vocalist David Lee Roth. During Hagar's time with VAN HALEN, the band released four consecutive No. 1 albums. From worldwide stadium concerts tours to private jets, Hagar enjoyed the trappings of fame and success with VAN HALEN until he was, as he puts it, "unceremoniously fired." Hagar later thrived as a solo act, leading his band, the CABO WABOS, before returning triumphantly to VAN HALEN for an historic reunion tour after which he set off on his own once again.

Honest and compelling, Hagar's account spares no one, least of all himself. Hagar's autobiography reveals the inside story of one of rock music's most recognizable voices, from his humble beginnings in the town of Fontana, California, to his incredible business success with Cabo Wabo Tequila and the Cabo Wabo Cantinas. The book was co-authored by Joel Selvin, longtime pop music writer for the San Francisco Chronicle.

While Aerosmith work on their first studio album of original material since 2001's Just Push Play, a live release might also be in the works. In his latest online post, assistant tour manager John B. writes he is "almost positive" that last year's show at FenwayPark in Boston "will see the light of day sometime soon." Casey Patrick Tebo, Aerosmith's video director, captured the show, a double-bill with another legendary Boston band, J. Geils.
Aerosmith recently filmed a video for CampFelix, a camp for children in need. Actress and director Penny Marshall put it together. John B. says it features the band and "numerous other celebrities singing 'Walk this Way' with different lyrics. Steven [Tyler] redid his vocals moments before the video was shot."

AEROSMITH entered the studio on Tuesday, July 5 with producer Jack Douglas to begin recording its long-awaited 14th studio album. "One word bout 1st day n studio 'Inspiring.'" drummer Joey Kramer tweeted yesterday. He added, "No words can describe how inspired I'm feeling in the studio right now. It's a beautiful thing." He also tweeted a photo of himself in a recording studio with Douglas (see below).

In a videotaped message that was released via AEROSMITH's official web site, bassist Tom Hamilton stated about re-teaming with Douglas, "For those of you who don't know who Jack is, he's the guy who we worked with, producing our best albums of the '70s ? 'Get Your Wings', 'Toys In The Attic' and 'Rocks'. And it's really gonna be cool, because there's no one that knows more about the soul of this band and the creative part of this band [than] Jack. We worked with him on [2004's covers CD] 'Honkin' On Bobo', but that wasn't all original material ? most of that was not original material. This time it's gonna be all-new AEROSMITH songs."

He continued, "When people say, 'What was it like to work with Jack back then?' all I can say is we just laughed the whole time; there was always laughter going on, and fun, but at the same time really digging deep to get performances that were even better than we thought we could do."

AEROSMITH's new CD is being recorded in the Massachusetts studio that the band built six years ago, will be AEROSMITH's first set of original material since 2001's "Just Push Play" and first studio offering since 2004's covers CD, "Honkin' On Bobo".

The plan to resume work on a new disc follows the completion of singer Steven Tyler's first season as a judge on "American Idol". The band, minus Perry, did get together for a week earlier this year in Los Angeles to work on new material.

AEROSMITH and Tyler almost went their separate ways in late 2009, but reunited and toured last year. However, Tyler then stunned his bandmates by taking the "Idol" job, which pushed back work on the already-delayed new record.

Joe Perry has once again confirmed what he first said last month -- Aerosmith will get together next month in their Boston studio to once again start work on their next album.
Writing on Twitter, he says, "Whole band has plans to go into the studio with [producer] Jack Douglas second week of July to work on new Aero CD." In the meantime, he says he has been "laying down some new tracks [and] been listening to fans comments over last couple of years [and] putting that in the creative blender."
Earlier this year all the members except Perry got together in Los Angeles to write new material. Their last album of original material was 2001's Just Push Play. Douglas was behind the board for some of the band's best albums, including Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic and Rocks.

Bret Michaels has responded to Nikki Sixx's recent "trash-talking," inisisting that the MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist did, in fact, apologize to the POISON singer for saying "a lot of bad crap" about Bret's band.

In a recent interview with The Arizona Republic, Michaels claimed that Sixx said he was "really sorry" about some negative comments his MÖTLEY CRÜE bandmates made about POISON. A few days later, Sixx took to his personal Twitter page in order to "clarify" that he never apologized to Bret for derogatory statements that MÖTLEY made about POISON, explaining that what he did say was "I personally never had anything against you guys as a people but MÖTLEY just sorta thought you sucked as band but let's give the fans what they want and go out and have a good time."

During an exclusive interview with Michaels yesterday (Wednesday, May 18), AOL's Noisecreep asked the rocker if he felt comfortable commenting on the recent Sixx mudslinging.

"No, I love it and I hope you can help me put this to rest," Michaels said. "I'm going to be very blunt and honest. When my career started, Nikki and I hung out and I remember telling him there were some CRÜE songs that I absolutely liked — I took a positive approach to things. You can look back at old photos me and Nikki with our Harley's. We used to ride together because we had a house down the street from each other. At the time, both of our careers had just started and our records had hit. We would go out and party together, I would even join the CRÜE on stage and sing. Everything was great.

"Now at one point – I think it was in the mid-'90s – POISON and BON JOVI were playing the arenas. Our 'Native Tongue' album [1993] had sold a million copies and BON JOVI's album, 'Keep The Faith' [1992], was at about 1.5 million or something and at one point in the middle there, MÖTLEY CRÜE changed singers all this stuff."

"That's around the period when Nikki decided to brand his band differently," Michaels continued. "What confused me about that time period was when Nikki said that Vince [Neil, CRÜE singer] and I were kind of ridiculous. Now these are his words, 'You and Vince are kind of the same — you don't really pick and choose your fans, you just kind of go out and play music.' Well, I thought that's what music was about. I didn't know I was supposed to decide which fan can like or not like my music.

"I did Nikki's radio show about two months ago and it was an absolutely great day. We talked about the tour and everything was cool. Now on the show he says to me, 'Bret, man, what's going on? Let's take a picture together,' and so on. We also did all of this television press for the tour in Los Angeles together and everything was great.

"He even apologized to me and said, 'I sort of said a lot of bad crap about you guys, but you're actually a relevant band,' and he went in and said some other good stuff about a month ago. I got a text from Nikki two weeks ago saying, 'Hey bro, excited to see you on the road!' But then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, I hear about him talking trash about us again. I can't keep up [laughts]!"

Read more of Noisecreep's interview with Michaels at this location.

Sixx previously said about CRÜE's decision to embark on a tour with POISON and "special guest" NEW YORK DOLLS, "One of the things MÖTLEY CRÜE said was that we would never tour with POISON because we were sort of punk / heavy metal / glam, we came out of the very, very early '80s and took what we did very... it was very important to us. And then bands came after us and we wanted to kind of separate from them. And we had never planned on touring with any of the bands from that era. There was no animosity — it was just that we put a very clear line. But when the [NEW YORK] DOLLS signed on, it made it seem like it was the right time to do that this tour."

In a February 2004 online posting, Sixx shot down reports that his then-band BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION would be touring later that year with POISON and KISS. "No way in fucking hell would we (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION or MÖTLEY CRÜE) ever, ever tour with a fucking band like POISON," he wrote. "We have had talks with KISS and I told them very clearly that we would not do the tour if they used POISON. That would be the death of us... I will not be attached to that kind of fake bullshit..." When questioned about his comments in a May 2004 interview with the Stamford Advocate, Sixx explained, "I was in negotiations and said it depends who else is on the tour. If you're going to do a nostalgia thing, we're not interested. If you go get JET or THE DARKNESS, it sounds like fun. All of a sudden they come back with KISS, the BRIDES and POISON! There ain't no way in hell I'm doing that tour. I will not play with fucking POISON. There are followers and leaders. I'm not into followers."

During a July 2005 interview with the Fox 2 TV network, Sixx famously closed out the four-minute chat by calling the interviewer "an asshole" after he was asked the question, "Who rocked harder in the '80s: MÖTLEY CRÜE or POISON?"

When POISON drummer Rikki Rockett was questioned in an August 2006 interview with DelcoTimes.com about Sixx being abrasively vocal in his displeasure about being categorized alongside POISON, Rikki replied, "Nikki really needs to get over it. I don't think a forty-something-year-old man should be acting like that; you'd think with all that Nikki has been through, he wouldn't care about these dumb little rivalries."

So, I'm out last night with a few friends at a local establishment.  The place is a bit crowded, rather warm and I'm wearing my jacket.  After about 5 minutes it's getting quite hot and I decide I have to ditch my jacket.  I ask the lady friend of mine who I rode with for her car keys so I can stash my jacket.  She says sure and "can you put my purse in my car?" Without thinking, I say yes as I just wanted to get outside as quickly as possible.  I grab her purse in one hand, my jacket in the other and head for her car.  I take about 4 steps outside and realize what I'm doing.  I'm carrying a humongous saddlebag of a woman's purse and this goes against everything I believe in.  Not only carrying a purse, but carrying one from a woman I'm not even having sex with.  Makes it waaaaay worse.  I pick up my pace a bit and I feel this car slow down right next to me.  A guy yells "hey buddy, is that your girlfriend's purse."  Already irritated with the entire situation, I say "yeah it is, you f--in, ass...." and I as I turn to face the guy I realize "oh crap."  It's a cop.  "Uh, sorry, sir.  I thought you were someone else.  Uhhhhh, yeah, it's my girlfriend's purse.  I'm just taking it to her car along with my jacket."  Meanwhile, I've got her keys out hitting buttons and the car's beeping, trunk's opening, lights are flashing...."This is her car right here. She's about 2 blocks away from here.  I can take you to her and you can ask her yourself."  He sizes me up for a second and says "forget it."

Of course the cop is thinking I must have lifted the purse.  Why else would any self-respecting man be carrying a purse so big that you could fit an entire Walgreens store in it, if he didn't steal it from some woman.  I, however, am not self, nor respecting.  Moral of the story is never, under any circumstances, carry a woman's purse.  Not your wife's, not your girlfriend's, not your mom's, not even you side action's purse.  Nothing good can ever come of it.

While Motley Crue is getting ready to hit the road this summer on their 30th anniversary tour, their singer Vince Neil is getting the bulk of the press, but not for their music. Having recently spent 30 days in jail and under house arrest for DUI, Neil was recently charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and disorderly conduct after an altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Alicia Jacobs, in Las Vegas. But, according to Motley bassist Nikki Sixx, Neil wants to get on with his life, admitting that he "made a mistake." If convicted, Neil could face another six months in jail and a $1,000 fine on each charge.

A rare display of common sense

(PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA) A federal judge has ruled: It's okay for middle school students to love "Boobies". At issue was the ever-popular bracelets proclaiming a love of "Boobies". Proceeds from the sales go to fight breast cancer.      Recently, two teenage girls were suspended from Easton Area Middle School for wearing the bracelets. U.S District Judge Mary McLaughlin wrote this week (quote) "The bracelets are intended to be and they can reasonably be viewed as speech designed to raise awareness of breast cancer." She sided with the teens & the girls' freedom to proclaim their love of Boobies.

Vince Neil says he was the one who was injured last week during a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend in a Las Vegas hotel. He says Vegas TV entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs dug her nails into his arm, leaving two bloody marks. Alicia has filed a battery report against him claiming he poked her shoulder and left a mark, a claim he denies.

Earlier this week Neil told the Las Vegas Weekly that there was a confrontation, but said there was "no hitting or touching."

Alicia ended their seven-month relationship earlier this month, claiming it was "due to the decisions Vince continues to make," which is reportedly a reference to his drinking. Neil recently completed serving 30 days for a 2010 DUI arrest.
