Tony Romo, Jessica Simpson Get Their Rock On With Metal Skool


January 29, 2008

He may have missed out on leading his team to the Super Bowl, but Tony Romo proved he’s still a rock star on Monday night in Los Angeles.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback accompanied by his lady love, Jessica Simpson, to Metal Skool — a spandex and hairspray friendly weekly show at Sunset Boulevard’s famed Key Club.

After some less-than-friendly chants from the crowd, Romo was prompted to hit the stage with Simpson and her mane-man, Ken Paves, to join the band — also called Metal Skool, on stage.

Romo then proceeded to grab the mic and rock out hair metal style alongside Metal Skool’s Michael Starr, Satchel, Lexxi Foxxx and Stix Zadina to the Journey classic “Don’t Stop Believing.”

Though she eeked out a smile, Simpson seemed to hide behind her man as he butchered the air guitar classic.

Simpson seemed less cuddly when Romo attempted and failed to match some Axl Rose style wailing in the Guns ‘N Roses standard, “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

Romo isn’t the only celebrity to hit the popular Monday night soiree. Kelly Clarkson and Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding on “Saved By The Bell”) are among the many famous faces who’ve paid patronage to the club and joined the hair band on stage over the years.
