Random news (Camp Freddy + 200 Greates Pop Culture Icons + Dizzy's wife publishes book)
Gig report from Camp Freddy's site:

Thanks to everyone that came to Vegas to see the band. So in one of those freakish events that seem to follow CF around, a lightning storm hit Vegas right in the middle of the bands set and the Hotel (not the band) decided to pull the power to protect the band and all the gear. Probably a wise decision in hindsight, but the band were definitely ready to play on, alas it was not to be. Thanks to all the guests that came to play, we'll do it again soon. Hopefully without the lightning next time.

Set List:

Ballroom Blitz
Roadhouse Blues
Whole Lotta Love
Jean Genie
God Save The Queen*
Janie Jones
New Rose
20th Century Boy
Love Removal Machine
Brass In Pocket
I Wanna Be Your Dog

Guests: Macy Gray, Steve Jones, Steve Stevens, Josh Todd

* The Hard Rock pulled the power at this point due to a lightning storm and the fact that the band were playing outside.

A new show is going to premiere on VH1. It's called THE GREATEST: 200 GREATEST POP CULTURE ICONS and GN'R is supposed to be on that list.

Tune in: Monday, July 21-25 @ 9/8c PM

Here's more info about the show:

You can quote them in an instant, reference them with just one name, and even dress up like them for Halloween. In this always-expanding pop culture of ours, there are plenty of stars, but precious few icons. On its latest edition of the acclaimed Greatest countdown series, VH1 burrows into the pop personas that have made the ultimate impact - names so familiar they're recognized and revered in the world's most far-flung spots.

Sex In the City s Kristin Davis is your host through five nights worth of intriguing installments. She'll also be showing us who online voters chose in a separate poll (vote now for your favorites)! From Abba to Wonder Woman, The 200 Greatest Pop Culture Icons is coming to make sense of uber fame's timeless nature.

Dizzy's wife, Lisa Reed, will publish a book in the future.

It's called SABRA’S SOUL and here's a short description of it:

From the heart of the California rock music scene comes this story of much more than just love and betrayal.

More info about the book can be found here.
