Will You watch Married to Rock — the show all about the lives of women married to rock stars?
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which premieres Oct. 14, is a slice of life from one of the most famous parts of Los Angeles, but it better watch out — E! is creating another show centered in the City of Angels, and it sounds like it’s going to be a whole lot of drama.
Married to Rock will be a reality show featuring the wives of some of the most hard core rockers in the business (and one woman who is about to marry into the clan)…and we cannot wait!

Considering the rampant success of shows like "Basketball Wives" and the "Real Housewives" series, it was only a matter of time before reality show cameras started tracking the daily trials and tribulations of the spouses of rock stars. Just such a thing will be happening when E! premieres "Married to Rock," a show that will focus on a handful of women married to rock stars and will premiere on November 7. Since shows like this live and die on the personalities of the people involved, the cast is very important, and this batch includes Susan Holmes McKagan (wife of former Guns N' Roses member and current Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan), Etty Farrell (wife of Jane's Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza godfather Perry Farrell), Josie Stevens (wife of Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens) and Aj Celi (the not-quite-wife of the Cult guitarist Billy Duffy).
It's a strange mix of people, to be sure. »

Musician, entertainer and alter ego of the cult comedy creation Frank Sidebottom
Chris Sievey, who has died aged 54 after suffering from cancer, achieved the kind of success as Frank Sidebottom that often eluded him under his own name. Sidebottom, complete with papier-mâché head and a curious line in daft Bontempi songs, became a huge hit on the 1980s indie circuit, shoring up his fame through a series of television and radio shows. He was an inspired creation, a nasal-voiced pop star from the Cheshire seat of Timperley, releasing records in praise of his home village and oompah-muzak covers of old classics. His popularity peaked in the early 1990s, with the TV series Frank Sidebottom's Fantastic Shed Show and guest slots on the children's Saturday morning ITV show No 73.
