Ah, New Year’s resolutions. They’re something that the majority of people make but the vast majority never follow through on. It’s a commitment that people make for self-betterment, normally having to do with losing weight, eating healthy, saving money for the future, etc.
We here at ZLX thought it’d be funny to come up with a list New Year’s resolutions that certain rock stars should make. Note: This list is in no way factual and is meant purely for entertainment purposes only. Enjoy!
Resolution: The 69-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist has given up most vices, except one: Cigarettes. For 2013, Keef should ditch the cigs.
Resolution: The former Black Sabbath drummer needs to learn to forgive. In doing so, he can mend some fences with his old bandmates and get things back on track for a full Sabbath reunion in 2013.
Resolution: After numerous health-related issues in the past few years, including passing out twice onstage within days of each other, it probably won’t hurt if Meat Loaf lost some weight as he heads into retirement.
Resolution: The aging Beatles star has seen and done it all during his lifetime as a musician, but there is one thing he can take up in 2013: learn how to read and write music.
Resolution: Vince Neil of Motley Crue has had his fair share of outbursts over the years, but 2012 seemed to be the singer’s most violent, which included trying to punch a fan at a concert and causing a scene with a group of parking attendants. Vince’s resolution for 2013 should be to seek anger management.
Resolution: Consistently late to concerts, Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has decided that he will learn to be more punctual in 2013 (don’t count on it!).
Resolution: With reports that Steven Tyler and fiance Erin Brady called it quits late last year, 2013 should be a time for the Aerosmith star to finally find the right gal, settle down and get married.
Resolution: Ozzy Osbourne dealt with dyslexia and other learning disabilities and left high school at age 15. It’s always been his lifelong dream to go back to school and get his diploma (I doubt it).
Resolution: 2012 was one of Neil Young’s busiest years on record, releasing two collaborations with Crazy Horse, including a live album in the works. Meanwhile, the documentary of Young’s last tour, Journeys, is out, as is his memoirs, Waging Heavy Peace. 2013 should be a time for Young to improve his mental well being and learn to relax a little bit!
