Peter Gabriel’s Secret To Staying Young: Baked Beans

Peter Gabriel has discovered the secret to staying youthful at the ripe old age of 72 — although he admits it produces some nasty side effects.


The singer’s secret? Baked beans. “My son is studying biomedicine and he keeps educating me about longevity and stuff,” Gabriel says. “He has told me to eat more beans, but we all know the consequences of that. Maybe I will be able to float a little easier.”


Apparently, the beans are working. Gabriel says he’s been using his newfound energy to record a new album, and he plans on launching a tour following its release next year.

Ted Nugent Says Billie Joe Armstrong Has ‘Lost His Soul’

Conservative rocker Ted Nugent says Billie Joe Armstong has “lost his soul.”


Nugent’s assessment of the Green Day frontman comes after Armstrong said he wants to denounce his U.S. citizenship in the wake of the Supreme Court’s repeal of Roe v. Wade. “I’ve gotta tell ya, the word ‘cruelty’ from the left — I’ve witnessed some artists out there, like Billie Armstrong of Green Day,” Nugent says. “He’s incredibly talented, but he’s just lost his soul.” Nugent goes on to say Armstrong and other artists “just scream and attack people who choose not to have an abortion.”


The Motor City Madman says his biggest concern has nothing to do with whether abortions should be legal. “”It’s not the banning of abortions; it’s bringing it back to constitutionality and common sense,” Nugent says. “By the way, as you and I speak right now, if anybody wants an abortion in America, guess what? They can get one.”

Tommy Lee’s Wife Explains Broken Ribs

We now know how Tommy Lee broke four ribs.


The Motley Crue drummer’s wife recently revealed he was carrying luggage down uneven stairs at a rental house in Nashville, when he fell.


She said on Snapchat, “We were staying at an old rental house in Nashville. It was a cool, old quirky house. But the stairs outside were made out of stones, and they were really uneven, and the roots were pushing them up from the tree. And everything was fine. I actually fell up the stairs a few times getting groceries, but whatever. So, the day that we were leaving Nashville, our driver came and we had all this luggage and he wasn’t helping us; he just stayed in the car. And so Tommy was trying to carry all of our luggage for us. And he fell down these crazy stairs and broke four ribs. Not fractured, not bruised, broke.”


The drummer has been unable to play full sets on the band’s stadium tour.

40 Years After He Bit The Head Off One, Ozzy Osbourne Works To Save Bats

In January 1982, Ozzy Osbourne shocked the world by biting the head off a live bat during a concert in Iowa. Now, more than 40 years later, he’s working to help preserve the little flying mammals.


Osbourne has reportedly applied for permission to install bat boxes on his property in Buckinghamshire, England, the Mirror reports. Bat boxes, which are similar to bird houses, provide the dwindling species with places to roost. Not only do bat boxes help preserve the species, but they also keep their surrounding areas almost insect-free.


Osbourne discussed the bat-biting incident in 2008, telling Classic Rock magazine, “It must have been stunned by the lights or something because it just froze and I thought it was a toy. I just put it in my mouth. Then its wings started flapping and I got such a shock. I tried to pull it out too quickly and its head came off.”


Will Ozzy be forever known as the guy who bit the head off a live bat?

The nearly two-hour film details his rise to fame, his exit from the band and the tragedies in between.


He said, “It’s basically just my life story. There’s a lot of documentaries out there, and a lot of things that people form an opinion of me [on] and haven’t really ever heard from me. And now, I could dispel all those rumors. People think that they know me, but they don’t.”

Bono Has A Half-Brother He Didn’t Know Existed For Decades

Bono made a surprising revelation in a BBC Radio interview this weekend – that he has a half-brother he was unaware of for decades.


The 62-year-old U2 frontman says he didn’t learn about his secret sibling until 2000, one year before his father’s death.


He said his mother, who died in 1974 when Bono was just 14, never knew the secret.


Bono says his relationship with his father was “complicated” but that he’s “at peace” with the situation.
