Motley Crue Leather Jacket Sells For $850 on Ebay
A rare leather jacket from Motley Crue's 'Dr, Feelgood' tour has sold for $850 on eBay. While that may seem like a steep price, it's possible that the jacket, sized women's extra small, has a connection to the band.
The seller claims that the brown jacket, made by rock merchandisers Brockum, once belonged to singer Vince Neil's girlfriend. While there is no official document certifying its authenticity, the name "Laura" is embroidered in script on a front pocket, and "BAND" is also embroidered on the right sleeve below the logo, suggesting that this may not have been bought at the merch table. Motley Crue's logo extends across the back, and five skulls are on the right shoulder.
We presume that, for that price, it has hopefully been dry-cleaned, given the Crue's notorious decadence.
Released in 1989, 'Dr. Feelgood' tour was Motley Crue's most successful album, topping the Billboard 200 and selling more than six million copies. They went on a massive tour in support of the album, headlining arenas around the world, including Australia and Japan.
