Blink and Motley Drummers Get Reality Series

Published: 2004-12-14
Back in the day music stars lined-up to get their own variety show, nowadays quite a few are jumping at the chance to have cameras follow them around as they go about their everyday lives. Preparing to join the ranks of The Osbournes and golden couple Dave Navarro & Carmen Electra are some of the world's most popular rock stars.

Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, his wife Shanna Moakler and their family are signed on for a MTV reality series that is being called 'Meet The Barkers'. The show is set to air next year on the US music station, and will see the couple attend Playboy parties and family celebrations. Another rocker that has joined the reality series family is Tommy Lee, drummer of the newly re-formed Motley Crue. His NBC series follows him as he attends Nebraska University, which has reportedly already angered some of the school's staff and students.

As previously reported on Soul Shine, legendary rock band INXS are also entering the realm of the real, as they search for a new lead singer. In cooperation with CBS, the band is holding open auditions all over the world to find Michael Hutchence's replacement.

By the time 2005 rolls around, the Simpson clan will have more reality shows than you can throw a stick at. Poptart Jessica Simpson and husband Nick Lachey have renewed their series 'Newlyweds' for a third season, while Jessica's little sister's spot 'The Ashlee Simpson Show' will jump into its second. According to, Ashlee's show isn't going to skirt around her much-talked about SNL lip-synching debacle, for those wondering. And not only will Lachey return to 'Newlyweds', but he will launch his own show called 'The Nick Lachey Project' which follows him as he tries to build a solo career.
