Def Leppard pissed off hockey fans over the weekend during a live performance at the NHL’s opening night ceremonies at the Fox Theater in Detroit. No, it wasn’t because the British rockers refused to play “Love Bites.” As you can see in the video footage below, after Red Wings forward Darren McCarty drove out on to the stage on a motorcycle to triumphantly hand the group’s frontman Joe Elliott the coveted Stanley Cup, the singer proceeded to walk over and display it … upside-down! You know it’s bad when even The Tehran Times is calling out your blunder. Elliott shrugged off the whole faux pas by saying, “We’re soccer boys, what do we know?” Maybe next year they can get Nickelback? ?Aidin Vaziri

David Bowie's new retrospective CD, iSELECT:BOWIE, takes a different slant from the usual "best of" compilation. Earlier this year, Bowie was asked by a U.K. newspaper to compile twelve songs for a limited edition CD to be bundled with the paper's June 29 edition. To the delight of everyone involved, Bowie came up with an unexpectedly personal, career-spanning track selection that, in his words, he "never seems to tire of." The disc, which became an instant collector's item, will be commercially released next Tuesday (Oct. 14).

The ongoing saga of the on-again, off-again Led Zeppelin reunion tour continues with new information coming from Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, whose manager also works with Robert Plant. In an interview with Matt Wells of MuchMoreMusic, Snider revealed that Zep members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have picked Myles R. Kennedy of Alter Bridge to be the band’s lead singer should Robert Plant follow through on his apparent decision to forego the much-rumored Zeppelin reunion tour slated for 2009. “They're saying [to Robert], ‘We're all rehearsed, we’re ready to go, here’s a gazillion dollars on the table,” Snider told MuchMoreMusic. “If you don't do it, we're going out with this kid. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin.’ And they're gonna, like, hope that Robert, at the last minute, will go, ‘OK,’ and step in, before having the lead singer of Alter Bridge out with John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Jason Bonham."
