Art broker Acquire d'Arte filed a lawsuit against Axl Rose and is seeking $1.15 million in damages, claiming the Guns N' Roses singer backed out of a deal to pay $2.36 million for an Andy Warhol portrait of John Lennon.

The broker claims to have negotiated the art deal for Rose with a New York art gallery and was able to lower the price of the artwork from $2.65 million to $2.36 million for him.

But after agreeing to buy the painting, Rose allegedly paid only $1.21 million, according to the suit.

McDonald's is apparently considering serving its breakfast items all day long now. This is good news for people that consider its Egg and/or Sausage McMuffins to be better than anything else on the menu (well, except for the fries).

McDonald's CEO Jim Skinner revealed the plot on Wednesday at an investment conference, though admitted there is no timetable on this yet.

Bigger breakfast sales have been key to McDonald's recent turnaround, as breakfast has been the "strongest performer" for the chain the last three years. Breakfast sales at McDonald's took off with the introduction of McGriddles in 2003 and also jumped after the March introduction of premium coffee.

Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu is launching his own clothing line.

Following in the footsteps of bandmate James "Munky" Shaffer, Fieldy is expected to officially introduce Immanuel One Twenty Three sometimes next year year, thought you can go check out the website now.

Fieldy has been promoting the clothing line in Korn meet-and-greet signings on The Family Values Tour 2006 by passing out stickers.

If this venture is even half as successful as his failed rap career (anyone remember his awful Fieldy's Dreams CD? I didn't think so...), then it should be a complete failure.

Thor & Zolar-X Live at The Knitting Factory in Los Angeles 8/223/06

People say rock is dead. And they may be right. But don't tell that to Thor the Rock Warrior or Zolar-X. These two veteran theatrical rock ?n' roll acts are bringing back showmanship, costumery, and massive stages shows via a U.S. tour that finds them sharing the stage every night on a double bill that kick your ass to high heaven.

Thor is Canada's greatest offering to the world. A bodybuilder turned heavy metal star turned B-movie star who has been bending steel, blowing up hot water bottles and battling monsters on stage since the ?70s, Thor is touring behind his latest epic, the incredibly titled Devastation of Musculation on Smog Veil Records. His specialty is gladiator rock and if you can imagine Conan the Barbarian crossed with David Lee Roth playing pummeling dragon-metal, than you are halfway there.

Zolar-X are space aliens who descended on Earth to play sci-fi glam-punk. They were the house band at Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco club in the ?70s before disappearing for a few decades, only to reemerge at the beckoning of former Dead Kennedy's frontman Jello Biafra, who collected all their recordings onto a mind-bending CD called Timeless on his Alternative Tentacles label. Reunited to support the album the band has been on the road and in the studio blowing minds all over again.

When the G4's TheFeed team heard that this union of superpowers was playing locally at the Knitting Factory here in sunny Los Angeles, right on Hollywood Blvd, we had to make the trek to witness such a spectacle. Needless to say we were not let down. Below are our thoughts, comments and ravings. Make sure to check out our awesome?photo gallery and prepare to have your mind blown by ROCK!!!

According to a study by Hamburg Sex Researcher Professor Dr Werner Habermehl, redheads have more sex than blondes or brunettes.

Habermehl analyzed the sex lives of hundreds of German women and compared them with their hair color.

"The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more active than those with other hair color, with more partners and having sex more often than the average," he said. "The research shows that the fiery redhead certainly lives up to her reputation."

He even went so far as to say that women who dye their hair red "are saying that they are looking for something better."
