|AXL GETS FIT
Tom Cruise,Axl Rose and Sylvester Stallone are all having this contraption installed in their mansions right now. It's a gym machine which promises that, in four minutes, you can achieve the same results as if you were to jog for 45 minutes, weight train for another 45 minutes and stretch for 15.
The secret behing ROM (Range of Motion) machine is that it forces you to consume more oxygen as you exercise. And it not only stimulates your muscles, it also creates sufficiently high metabolism so that, after just four minutes, users burn more calories for the rest of the day than the saddos who slog it out on the tredmill.
Yes, we scoffed it. But wouldn't it be fantastic if it really was possible to save yourself that extra 101 minutes of tedium?
You could be doing something more interesting like watching the telly and eating chocolate.
And, according to scientists at the University of Southern California, the ROM machine does work. With prolonged use, their guinea pigs not only replaced body fat with muscle, but also achieved the same level of fitness from their daily four minutes as if they'd been doing 45 minutes of aerobics a day.
The downside? It costs £7,778.

This is taken from a Tracii Guns interview:
Some 15 years after being part of the original incarnation of Guns N' Roses, L.A. Guns leader Tracii Guns says he's deriving neither amusement nor satisfaction from former bandmate Axl Rose's struggles to keep that band alive. "I don't care," says Guns, 35. "He's a schmuck; he'll always be a schmuck. End of story."
The Cult (with Matt Sorum) will be touring this summer.
