The End of the End is coming to theaters worldwide on September 28. It's a BLACK SABBATH concert film that features the band during their final show on their farewell tour. The show took place in February in the band's hometown of Birmingham, England. Naturally, it was standing room only. **************************************** Rumor has it that NIKKI SIXX from MOTLEY CRUE is in line to be the third judge on "American Idol".  KATY PERRY is already signed on, and ABC has allegedly been negotiating with LIONEL RICHIE for a while now.   **************************************** CHRIS CORNELL will be on the new JOHNNY CASH album.  It's called "Forever Words: The Unknown Poems: The Music" . . . and it features other artists making songs out of poems Johnny wrote over the years. **************************************** DEF LEPPARD might tour with JOURNEY next year. The bands last shared a bill in 2006. *************************************** POISON drummer RIKKI ROCKETT finalized his divorce . . . and he has a deal where his alimony and child support payments DOUBLE when he's on tour with the band . . . presumably because he's making more money. ************************************** The ROLLING STONES are releasing some kind of album along with a book about their radio and TV appearances during the '60s.  There aren't many details yet, although The Rolling Stones: On Air in the Sixties'  is tentatively set for release on September 8. ************************************** GREEN DAY performed at a music festival in Spain on Friday . . . just minutes after an acrobat had fallen to his death.  The band says they were not told about the accident before going on, and probably wouldn't have played if they knew about it. ************************************** RINGO STARR is releasing a new album in September called "Give More Love".  It includes guest appearances by Paul McCartneyJoe WalshEdgar WinterRichard MarxTimothy B. Schmit, and Peter Frampton.
