Sebastian Bach, Nuno Bettencourt film scenes for Rock Of Ages movie

Wouldn’t mind snagging some of Sebastian Bach’s frequent flyer miles.

The rocker was in Miami earlier this week – along with guitarist Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme (currently touring with Rihanna) – to film scenes for the Rock Of Ages film due out next year.

Under the caption “Evil Rock Singers Burn In Hell,” Bach posted the above photo to Facebook, adding, “On the set in Miami shooting ‘Rock Of Ages’ all night with Nuno Bettencourt, some nuns, bikers, & rockers all on an amazing set that looks exactly like Hollywood. No midgets though, sadly.”

Adapted from Broadway for the big screen, Rock Of Ages is a love story told through the music of Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Journey, Poison, Twisted Sister and other artists from the 1980s.

One of the film’s stars, Tom Cruise, has been working with Axl Rose’s vocal coach as he prepares for his role as Stacee Jaxx, the biggest rock star in the world; in the film, he’ll sing the Bon Jovi anthem "Wanted Dead or Alive."

"He's been studying with - seriously - Axl Rose's voice teacher like five hours a day," director Adam Shankman commented a few months ago. "The prognosis is more than excellent."

The director said that he heard Cruise sing at the actor's house. "That was a big moment," he said. "That voice lesson where he opened up and suddenly let loose and was really great. The two of us in concert breathed a collective sigh of relief to the tune of dancing around his living room." They even high-fived, the director said.

The movie has a release date of June 1, 2012.
