What’s “trending” at Chez Rock Vixen…and this one’s ALL ROCK & ROLL!
- Tommy Lee Urges Greece To Ban Cruel Donkey And Mule Rides
“The Greek government introduced new legislation last year that made it illegal for donkeys or mules to carry more than 15 stone (210 lbs) or one-fifth of their body weight, but it is not being enforced.
Santorini, one of Greece’s most popular destinations, has nearly two million visitors each year and many see riding donkeys as part of the experience. Donkeys and mules are forced to carry tourists up over 500 cliffside stairs to the capital of Fira and back. Aside from exceeding the weight limit, the animals are forced to work in the hot sun with minimal breaks and no food or water. Handlers have also been recorded beating the animals to make them continue on.
Animal activist and Mötley Crüe drummer, Tommy Lee, recently wrote a letter urging the government to “put an immediate end to the old-school cruelty of ‘animal taxis’.”

Do They Know It’s Christmas? (1984)
“Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is a song written in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in reaction to television reports of the 1983–1985 famine in Ethiopia. It was first recorded in a single day on 25 November 1984 by Band Aid, a supergroup put together by Geldof and Ure and consisting mainly of the biggest British and Irish musical acts at the time.”
