Perhaps all too predictably, the guys' constant bickering, partying with female groupies and drunken performances take center stage, making the show less about their hard road to success than their rowdy lifestyle. (Big surprise.)

And even though these rockers' lives may not be dull, there are times when the show definitely is. Aside from the aging performers' outrageous antics, which lose their charm rather quickly, The Rock Life provides little insight into what it's really like to be a rock musician -- or what really takes to succeed in the music industry.
