VH-1 Behind the Music
What happens when you mix rock stars with alcohol and egos - a great VH-1 Behind the Music moment.

They interview the musicians, the roadies, the groupies, the wives and anyone else with a good tale to tell. This site archives the stories and lets viewers know which bands will be raked over the coals next.

The Puppy Cam

Aw, they're so cute.
