These amps go to 11

So hairspray rock is making a comeback. I kind of figured it would. Thanks to the big hype and success of the UK band, "The Darkness," musicians all over Hollywood are pulling out their dusty spandex pants and rusty cans of Aqua Net. All the sucky bands who used to play The Strip, most of all who are now in their 40s, are running out for hair systems and hair extensions to cover up their inevitable hair loss.

I would love to be a fly on the wall in the homes of hardcore strip bands like Ana Black or the Big Bang Babies. "I told ya it would come back, Mick! Our songs rocked, man. Let's put the band back together."

I'll be the first to admit that I get all excited when I see an old video of Sebastian Bach belting out, "I Remember You," but rehashing some of this old crap is going to be downright pathetic.

The difference is that The Darkness RAWKS.

Come on, Andy, you can't really be falling for all this hype. The Darkness is no different than the best of the strip bands - you've just forgotten your roots, lad.

Hi Toni,

There's nothing Ratt ever had to say that beats the taste of a Father's Office burger. It was cool to meet you and talk about stuff. I see how the Wax came to bee. Heh.
