Our 10 Favorite Celebrity-Rocker Couples Of The ’80s And ’90s: A Rock Of Ages Fashion Flashback

Richie Sambora and Cher, Heather Locklear and Tommy Lee, Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova, Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen

As we gear up for the release of Rock of Ages this week, we’ve been looking back at some of the trends the nostalgic musical so lovingly celebrates, like Malin Akerman’s sexy rocker-chick look and Mary J. Blige’s flashy jumpsuits. More than any one fashion, the movie reminds us of one big trend the late ’80s and early ’90s were famous for: the groupie. Not just the girls who flashed their goods from the audience or hung around by the tour buses, either — there were plenty of high-profile ladies who were eager for a backstage pass. And some of them got a lot more than a private concert in the bargain.

As we gathered this list of our favorite celebrity-rocker pairs, from Cher and Gene Simmons to Tommy Lee and Heather Locklear, one other thing became very evident: All of these couples seemed to share taste in makeup, tight pants, big hair and baggy blazers. It even looks like Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli got their hair cut together. And maybe Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter could swap blazers, while Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour traded acid-washed jeans. We’re not sure what exactly Melissa Gilbert and Billy Idol had in common, but, yeah, that happened!

Melissa Gilbert’s Dancing With The Stars Injury Brings Out The Hero In Gavin DeGraw

Man, as beneficial as a good run on Dancing With the Stars can be for celebrities looking for a comeback the show is also quite hazardous to their health. Last night, Melissa Gilbert was rushed to the hospital after her performance and later tweeted that she was treated for “mild concussion and whiplash.” Amazingly, her paso doble with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, which earned a 22. That’s what separates stars from normal people, isn’t it? We would have been lying down and crying, like, right away.

And speaking of people not acting like normal people, Gavin DeGraw was a total hero last night. He carried Melissa down the stairs like a knight in shining armor. “I think anybody would have done it,” he told People. “She wasn’t feeling good. I think she hit her head, so I asked her if she wanted to lay down or something. So we decided maybe it’d be best to get her out of the skybox so I carried her. It was further than I thought! It dawned on me how far it was when my arms wouldn’t work anymore.”
