"I'm Losing My Child to Marilyn Manson" Topic for Monday's (Jan. 12)  Jenny Jones Show

Look for the autobiography of Marilyn Manson this March.

Vince Neil's former lawyers are suing the band and Elektra Records. They claim Neil never paid them for his legal costs during his dispute with the band, which they say totaled over $400,000. They also claim Motley Crue agreed to pay Vince's fees.

Iron Maiden is currently working on a computer game with Synthetic Dimensions. The game is based on their mascot Eddie.

released this fall. There also has been talk of a reunion with the band.
