Motley Crue singer Vince Neil nearly had a fist fight with Boy George on the set of Celebrity Apprentice where both were contestants recently, according to former MMA UFC title contender Chael Sonnen, who was also participating in the show.

Sonnen told TMZ: "Those guys had real-life heat. They had a real-life confrontation. It was a fight. It was verbal but it was escalating very quickly."

According to Sonnen, the fight started when the former Culture Club singer, a recovering alcoholic, objected to the Crue vocalist drinking a glass of wine during the filming of a challenge for the show.

Apparently production staff came in and closed the whole situation down, before any punches were thrown.

Sonnen continued: "I'm just a bystander but I'm there like, 'Guys, are we looking for ratings or not?' They screwed up. That was a huge miss and someone should have a talking-to."

While Sonnen was discussing the Celebrity Apprentice fight between Neil and Boy George, another scrap was unfolding on Twitter.

On Friday morning, President-elect and former Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump took a swipe at new host Arnold Schwarzenegger for the show's mediocre ratings.

Former Governor of California Schwarzenegger's replies were classy and the second one gained over 33,000 likes in less than twenty-four hours.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
