Motley Crue
Rockers Motley Crue has suffered a setback in their bid to sue drummer Tommy Lee's manager for lost wages - their legal action has been declared insufficient.

The band claims Carl Stubner's actions - when he advised Lee to shoot two reality TV series instead of join a Crue reunion tour - cost them millions and hurt their reputation.

But a judge in California has ruled that the legal papers don't support a cause of action, and he has given the bandmates 20 days to re-file the papers with additional facts.

Motley Crue founders Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil and Mick Mars originally f...

Perry Farrell
Rocker Perry Farrell has hit out at his former bandmate Dave Navarro's role as a judge on TV talent show Rock Star Supernova - insisting "music isn't a competition". Farrell hates the way music is used for reality TV shows, and isn't impressed with his former Jane's Addiction pal's involvement in the CBS program.

He tells Mojo, "Music isn't a competition - it's about expressing yourself. There are no awards at Lollapalooza; it's just 130 different acts sharing a stage."
