VH1 Rock Honors Awards

I just finished watching this years VH1 Rock Honors... with presenter like Robin Williams and Cameron Diaz, it should have been great. Instead it was EXCELLENT. There wasn't a disappointing minute... save for when Bam Margera gave himself a black eye, on purpose. Here is a quick summation of the nights events. I just wish I could post it online from my TiVo. Sorry guys!
