11 Pets of Rock + Metal Stars to Follow on Social Media

Surely, after enduring a year of a pandemic, your social media feeds are in a terribly sorry state. The same people posting the same thing (which is nothing — it’s a pandemic, nobody has a life), the latest memes you’re already so done with by the next day and the same six photos of some cute animals. Here to liven up your life, once more, we’ve rounded up some lovable doggos and feisty cats who call some famous rock and metal musicians their prideful owners.

It’s time for some new follows and we’re starting with legendary drummer and his pup Mickey. This Maltese-Yorkie mix of Mike Portnoy‘s has amassed over 8,000 followers and is always smiling, sitting comfortably on a lap or nestled up under a blanket on the couch. He’s a brave little cancer survivor, too, deserving of a round of a-paws!

Keeping with drummers, Motley Crue‘s Tommy Lee boasts Nina Da Weena Dog and Teenie the Weenie. Teenie is a very recent addition to the home, after Lee and wife Brittany Furlan said goodbye to their dear Wicky earlier in 2021. Our condolences. Dog Heaven gained another angel that day.

As you’ll see below, we’ve got plenty more pets to follow from band members. There’s Winston Finnegan Luhrs (August Burns Red‘s Jake Luhrs) and his beefy little leg hanging over the couch, the classic dog and cat rivalry within the home of Cattle Decapitation‘s Travis Ryan, Ice-T‘s chonks and more.

Rock Stars Celebrating Birthdays in February

It may be the shortest month, but February is long on rock stars celebrating their birthdays. Do you share a birthday with a rocker?

There sure was a lot of talent who count February as their birthday month. The original shock rocker, Alice Cooper, will blow out the candles again in February. And once upon a time, the sweet child Axl Rose entered the world ready to kick up a ruckus.

Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Foo FightersTaylor Hawkins were actually born on the same date back in 1972.

Have a look below to see which rock stars are celebrating birthdays in February.
