Did I REALLY see Def Leppard on "Big in '05???"

Did you watch that show on VH1 - Big in '05? I'm sure you've heard of it, if nothing else, the title should give away the premise. So why was 'Big in '05' closed with Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard - which was 'Big in '85.' WTF!!??!?!?! I'm so sick of these ex-bands who are resurfacing and making me cringe. They haven't sustained a career in a decade and they're prancing around singing 20+ year old songs - I'm not that excited about Pour Some Sugar on Me anymore - at least not on TV. HOW IN THE WORLD are they affiliated with 'Big in '05??????????????????????????????????????????????????'

I'm also very, very, very, very, very unhappy with the slew (sp?) of 80s metal heroes of mine popping up on shows like Celebrity Fit Club and I Married Sebastian Bach - how would people feel if they saw Mr. Rogers cracked out and bloated and in rehab? Or Elmo stung out and getting in a car crash? Why do they have to ruin what was once great and idealistic? Why have all my metal heroes been crushed to death by years of age? And why put it on display? Let them have their dignity, and let me have my memories.

I am SO DISSAPOINTED in this trend - it makes me sick to my stomach. Truly.

Oh my dear, dear Gnomecorp. I get the feeling that you still mistake these people for something other than people. OF COURSE they're doing these awful shows. It's all they have left!!! Think of people you know who are actors. Think of all the attention they need all the time and how exhausting they are. Now multiply that by a million when actual success comes into the picture. Then multiply THAT by a BILLION when the success fades away. Won't someone PLEASE pay attention to me? PLEASE?

Shame on you! You've worked in the industry and you should know this. You're sounding like you're from Idaho and don't know any better. :)

You're so right! They are people. It's so sad. Why do they have to be human.
