  • Richie Sambora vs. Bon Jovi update.

    Posted by David Burns
     UPDATE: RICHIE SAMBORA CLAIMING HE WAS "PUSHED" OFF THE BON JOVI TOUR

    Richie Sambora is claiming he was pushed out of the Bon Jovi tour.

    Bon Jovi's website had said Richie left the band over "personal issues".

    But sources told the New York Post: "Jon Bon Jovi has been trying to get rid of him. He drinks constantly and has a stream of Hollywood bimbos around all the time. He didn't believe in rehab. He really is a hard partier and so are the women he hangs out with."

    No comment from Jon Bon Jovi or Richie Sambora.

  • NEW Stones dates and tickets under $100?

    Posted by David Burns
    ROLLING STONES ADDED MORE DATES, TALKED ABOUT STAYING FIT

    The Rolling Stones have added shows in Toronto and Chicago and more are set to come.

    Mick Jagger said: "Normally when you announce a tour like this, you announce part of it, you leave it to be, you see what happens, you might do a date here and another date there. You don't want to be completely hand fast, so you do leave some dates in between. So we'll see what happens."

    The Stones will kick off their "50 and Counting" tour in Los Angeles, with the date to be announced later. The second show is in Oakland, California, on May 5th. They'll also visit Las Vegas, Toronto, Chicago and Boston, and wrap in Philadelphia on June 18th.

    The Stones have at least three days in between tour stops, a sign that more shows could be added or the time could be used for rest.

    Keith Richards said: "I think it's a little bit of both."The band wants to pace themselves, but at the same time, I guess what's been announced is the bare-bones and we will play it by ear from there."

    Jagger said: "I just have to train a lot and keep really fit. I want to do these moves, but I can't do them because if I did, I'd probably screw up. You just got to do what's within your capabilities. I don't want it to look wrong, so I'm going to stay within my boundaries."

     RICHIE SAMBORA QUITS BON JOVI TOUR

    Source sasy it's because Jon treats him badly.  

    Tensions between Jon and Richie have been high for years.... 

    The sources say part of the problem is that Jon constantly belittles Richie and the two are also fighting over money. 

    Richie was a no-show at a Bon Jovi concert in Calgary on Tuesday and yesterday (Wednesday) he posted on the Bon Jovi website that he was pulling out because of "personal issues."

  • Take my money, you, Hovercratf Golf Cart!

    Posted by David Burns
    THE HOVERCRAFT GOLF CART THAT CAN DRIVE OVER WATER HAZARDS AND ACROSS SAND TRAPS

    PGA Tour golfer Bubba Watson debuted his specially-designed hovercraft golf cart.... in a video posted on YouTube.

    Unlike traditional carts, it can drive anywhere on the course without damaging the green.

    Because it floats on a cushion of air, sand traps are no longer traps and water hazard no longer a hazard.

     

    The hovercraft also has the advantage of having a smaller impact on golf greens.

    Traditional golf carts rest all of their weight on four tires.

    A hovercraft has a footprint 33 times lighter than the human foot.

     

    ** The BW1 includes a roof, space for clubs and sand mugs.

    No word yet on how much a new hovercraft golf cart costs, or whether they will be put into wider production.
