Former SKID ROW drummer Phil Varone, who recently reunited with his first band, SAIGON KICK, is featured on the cover of the winter 2010 issue of Playgirl magazine. The publication, which includes a 20-page spread on Varone, is due to hit newsstands on December 15.

Varone, who was one of eight patients featured on the "Celebrity Rehab" spin-off series "Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew", told the Gossip Ain't Sweet web site about the Playgirl photo session, "The photographer was just fantastic. We had a two-day interactive shoot in New York."

Varone, 42, recently proposed to his girlfriend Achsha Tatiana EeLise Lamb and plans to get married in 2011.

"We're in an open relationship and enjoy a lifestyle where we have sex with other people," the drummer told before adding that "sex with other people makes the relationship stronger."
