Slash is apparently so tired of talking about his past that he is now issuing a list of seven rules to journalists ahead of interviews. Now, these rules are designed to make us focus on the guitarist's present and future -- which includes his current album, Apocalyptic Love, his touring schedule and band, and his future plans -- instead of his past with Guns N' Roses.

The rules are:

Guns N' Roses is a topic that Slash can briefly touch on.
You can briefly discuss the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction -- but only to the extent of the honor of that.
You can't talk about the ceremony itself and Axl (Rose, Guns singer) not showing up and their performance, etc.
No questions about Axl whatsoever.
No questions about a possible Guns N' Roses reunion.
No "on the road" stories or historic infamous type stories based around Guns N' Roses.
There has to be a focus on what he's doing now and forthcoming events/plans.
Slash is touring Australia and New Zealand at the moment behind Apocalyptic Love, his second solo album and the first recorded with his touring band, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. The group starts a U.S. tour on September 4th in San Diego.

Do you think this a big deal?

Aerosmith will be releasing their latest single in the next few weeks. According to bassist, Tom Hamilton, the band's first album of new music in 11 years, Music From Another Dimension -- will be released on November 6.

Tom said, "We're in Bristow, Virgina. It's the last show of this leg of the tour we've been on all summer. We're going to go and chill for a while - and while we're taking a break - a couple of new songs from the new album are going to come out at the end of August."

Ryan Lochte is already crossing over from athlete to entertainer. The gold medalist filmed a spot for Funny or Die, in which he tells fans that peeing in the pool is more than just a habit. Funny as hell!

The long awaited Rolling Stones 50th anniversary documentary directed by Brett Morgan will air on HBO sometime this fall. Michael Lombardo, President of Programming at HBO, spoke to the press about the yet-to-be named doc, saying, "This is all done as part of the band's 50th anniversary. This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members -- Mick (Jagger), Keith (Richards), Charlie (Watts), and Ron (Wood) -- as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. We'll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world."

The band's last career-spanning documentary was 1989's 25 X 5: The Continuing Adventures Of The Rolling Stones. The film, shot during the band's Steel Wheels tour, featured new interviews with the band and many rarely seen live and TV appearances -- although most were unfortunately abbreviated. 25x5 remains one of the few official Stones films that has yet to be released on DVD.
