While Metallica may be one of the most successful rock bands of the modern era, drummer Lars Ulrich would rather hang out and get to know the newer bands coming up around them rather than shower them with unsolicited advice.

Evanescence rose to mainstream success early in their career, but with their release of their latest self-titled disc, founding member Amy Lee considers her band more of an underground success.

Poison frontman Bret Michaels is a man who knows how to seize an opportunity. After winning ‘Celebrity Apprentice” he hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped since.

Drummer Tommy Lee has always been a huge proponent for animal rights, using his voice in the legendary rock band Motley Crue to promote fair and safe practices for animals.

When Motley Crue and Kiss pulled their two-headed rock ‘n’ roll monster simply known as ‘The Tour’ into Englewood, Colo. last night (Aug. 9), they had a lot more than music on their minds.
