Performing on the show day will be the following five bands:
Swedish band TREAT was founded in 1984 and belongs to the Melodic Rock genre’s most loved bands. Their records are highly respected and the releases “Scratch And Bite”, “The Pleasure Principle” and “Dreamhunter” as well are all-time faves by many. In 2008, TREAT are still going strong and currently recording a new studio album which will see the light of day in early 2009.
STAGE DOLLS from Norway belong into the same category as TREAT: outstanding Scandinavian Melodic Rock! This outfit has been around since 1983 and also released some true Melodic Rock gem’s such as the records “Stage Dolls” and “Commandos”. Stage Dolls also are recording a new album right now, permanently are touring Norway and their appearance at Rock Over Munich will mark their first ever concert in Germany since 20 years!
These days, a nostalgic trip back to the 80s isn’t that unusual, especially when it comes to music. In 1988, the debut single of a then-unknown band became an overnight success. R5 was the name of the car. ‘Here I Am’ was the name of the song. DOMINOE was the name of the band! 2008 shows the Rock band from Munich very strong with the release of their new album “The Story Is Far From Told…”.
M.ILL.ION from Gothenburg, Sweden, was formed in 1989 by bass player and song-writer B.J Laneby. Influences in the music include everything from KISS, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, DIO, Accept to Queen, the blues and The Beatles – all combined with the more heavy approach of the 2000’s. May 2008 saw the release of their current album “Chase Of The Thrill”.
DARK SKY had been founded as a school band in the very early 80’s in the South German city of Rottweil. In between, the band has released four highly recommended German Hard Rock albums and been permanently performing live. Their latest record was released in June 2008 on AOR Heaven and is called “Empty Faces”.

Poison front man, Bret Michaels, hot off his hit cable show, Rock of Love 2, has released a brand new solo CD, for us to check out.
I thought this disc was going to be all new material, instead, Rock My World has three new tracks (Go That Far, Fallen, Start Again), one remixed song (It’s My Party), and 9 tunes that were previously released on Michaels’ previous solo CD’s, Freedom of Sound and Songs of Life.
Rock My World is more or less a Bret Michaels greatest hits CD. Those of you looking for a new Poison style, glam metal CD, may be disappointed by this disc. This is a completely different sounding disc. It is a mix of styles that blends pop, rock, and dare I say, country music.
The new song, Go That Far, did not impress me at all. I saw the video, before I heard the song, and it more or less plays out to be an advertisement for Rock of Love 2. Rock My World is not without good songs, but they aren’t enough of them here. Some of the highlights are the songs Driven, the Poisonish ballad Raine, Bittersweet, and the bluesy Start Again. On the latter half of Rock My World, Bret pulls a Bon Jovi, and does a duet with country music’s Jessica Andrews. I am not a big country music fan, so I didn’t care for this song too much, but this track does have some major crossover potential.
Now that Michaels has relaunched his career as a Hollywood Icon, with the T.V. Show Rock of Love, he needs to focus on his music career, and stop treading water with released like Rock My World.
Bret will be the headliner on Thursday Night, July 10th, at the Rocklahoma music festival. He will be playing a mix of Poison tunes, and songs from Rock My World. For you Rocklahoma fans, I hope he focuses on the Poison material. This is a disc for diehard Bret Michaels fans only.

The season finale of Rock of Love 2 is now over, and Bret Michaels has made his decision. Who did he pick?
As much as you hate to admit it, you are probably watching Bret Michaels’ Rock of Love 2 on VH1.
Tonight is the finale of Season 2.
Both girls have lied to Bret about different things. Neither girl seems to have an apparent edge.
Daisy apparently works as a stripper and lives with her ex-boyfriend, who she still shares a bed with. Daisy has also had a relationship with CC Deville. (Things that make you say hmmmmm!)
Ambre lied about her age (she is 37), she told Bret she was 31.
The Rock of Love Finale is tonight at 9 P.M. on VH1.
Spoilers from the final episode will be posted at HardRockHideout.com tonight. My guess is, there will be a Season 3 of the show in the fall of 2008. Assuming that the Poison, Sebastian Bach and Dokken tour is over by then.
I have to wonder if Bret Michaels thinks he is doing his career any favors, with this stupid reality show, Rock of Love, and now Rock of Love 2 on VH1.
CC Deville has had his taste of the Reality TV game with the Surreal Life, and now Bret continues with the moronic affair that is Rock of Love 2.
Somehow, this has become one of the highest rated shows on VH1. It truly is a sad, sad day, when garbage programs like this become media darlings.
Much like Rock of Love, the producers of this show must have been scouring every seedy strip club, and adult film shop to find their new cast full of artificially enhanced women.
Rock of Love 2, already has a porn star to its credit. Angelique Moran who is seemingly going by the name Albine on Rock of Love 2, has several porn sites to her credit. A quick google search on her name, and you will find the not so interesting site PornEskimo.com. I had no idea there was such a place, and a website like this is better left unvisited. Aside from that, two other cast members are Playboy models.
Hopefully someday, Bret Michaels will go back to a credible music career. He is only embarrassing himself by treading down this Rock of Love 2 road. At the rate he is going , he will be remembered more for this pathetic excuse of a T.V. Show. VH1 must pay well for shows like this. You may resume watching the train wreck now!
The train wreck of a show that you can’t stop watching is about to start once more.
“Rock of Love 2 with Bret Michaels” will premiere on vh1 Sunday, January 13, 2008!! That’s right, while most everything will be going to repeats due to the writer’s strike, an all new season of “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels” will begin! As you know, you made “Rock of Love” the highest rated show in vh1 history! And, since things didn’t work out with Jes, we’re back for round two!
