At 22, Vicky Hamilton left her hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and arrived on the Sunset Strip as a wide-eyed blonde with an ear for rock & roll: “I was back home interviewing Tom Petty for Three Rivers Review,” says Hamilton, “He told me I was a ‘real California girl’, and that’s all it took.” It was 1981, and Hamilton arrived at the center of Hollywood, where the scene was erupting with spandex, sex, cocaine, Aqua Net hairspray and madcap visionaries. Hamilton discovered Guns N’ Roses and became their first manager and surrogate mother, living in her apartment as Axl Rose ducked a rape charge. “I was basically harboring a fugitive,” she says, "Axl ended up crashing on my couch for six months.” Hamilton then negotiated GNR’s contract with Geffen Records. In 1986, she was let go and forced to sue the band to recoup the $25,000 she’d borrowed to bankroll them. Hamilton now shares her stories in a memoir about a woman who rode the crazy train with some of rock’s wildest frontmen, and matched their hard-partying ways. Sober for 15 years, Hamilton spent that last seven excavating her private collection of photos, flyers, contracts, letters, and interviews to create a revealing look into her fascinating life. Her book includes new details about her turbulent relationship with Axl Rose and Poison’s Bret Michaels, her experience as an A&R rep for Geffen, and above all, Appetite for Dysfunction: is the story of her rise and fall, and how she regained her life by becoming a Grammy Award winning executive that helped relaunch the career of June Carter Cash in 1999. Steven Adler (drummer, Guns N’ Roses): “Vicky was probably the best thing that happened to us in the early days. She dealt with us when nobody else would, and made everything happen for us. I’m grateful for that.

Have you noticed American guys being passive and/or too timid to make a move or take the lead? Why are straight men so passive these days? Is it because women became aggressive in business and got used to going after what we want, so suddenly the lazy, no-account men out there realized how much easier it was to lay back and let the woman do all the work? Why should a guy put out the effort and take the risk of expressing interest in a woman, asking her out, taking her out and basically courting her, when all they have to do is dress up in an attention getting way, like women normally do, get a woman’s attention, throw out the bait, lay back, and let her hunt?
While men became passive, women have become masculine and aggressive. Have you seen Jersey Shore? The guys on that show are like women and the women are like men. The guys spend hours on their tan, their hair, their body. They dress up in flashy colors like a girl, shave themselves from head to toe, wear hairspray. So many girls fall all over them. This is not particular to Jersey, this kind of guy is EVERYWHERE now, if not that Affliction-wearing ass clown ilk, then it’s him in a suit, but with the same basic mentality.
Men have come to enjoy being courted rather than doing the courting. They have grown lazy, their character and integrity weakening with each passing year. Men now sit back on their laurels and let women do all the work. Women are taking all the risk, essentially acting as the yin to their yang instead of the other way around. Amazingly, this doesn’t seem to bother men in the least. In fact they love it. Women are calling guys, asking them out, growing a penis, taking charge, all to their own detriment.

Laughter comes to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday October 15, 3 pm ET when Halli brings you two of the funniest people on the planet. Joining Halli is esteemed director and author John Waters and Seinfeld writer and author Peter Mehlman.
John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, writer and visual artist best known for his cult films, including Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented. He is also the author of ROLE MODELS, CRACKPOT and SHOCK VALUE. His new book CARSICK tells the hilarious story of America’s most beloved eccentric’s mid-life crisis journey: a cross-country hitchhiking journey.
Peter Mehlman began his career at the Washington Post. He slid to television in 1982, writing for SportsBeat with Howard Cossell. He has written for numerous national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, and a multitude of women’s magazines. One year after moving to Los Angeles he ran into Seinfeld writer and producer Larry David, which led to Mehlman’s writing the first freelance episode of the popular TV Show, rose to executive producer and coined such phrases as “yada yada” and “double dipping.” His new novel IT WON’T ALWAYS BE THIS GREAT is a brilliantly funny story of the mid-life crisis of a Long Island podiatrist that begins on a sub-zero, wind-chilled Friday night when the podiatrist crosses paths with a bottle of horseradish.
We could all do with a dose of laughter. Laugh yourselves silly, Wednesday, October 15, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli talks with John Waters and Peter Mehlman. We are Talk Radio for Fine Minds and Lovers of Humor. Tune in live online at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
