When Motley Crue released its sophomore album, ‘Shout at the Devil,’ on Sept. 26, 1983, they already wanted to rule the world. But they’d endured such desperate living conditions while scratching and clawing their way out of the Hollywood gutter, that just earning enough money to buy a sandwich probably still felt pretty damn exciting.
Motley Crue are gearing up for their second Las Vegas residency next month, and to commemorate the event, we're teaming up with our sister site Loudwire to give one fan a couple of great Nikki Sixx signature items: a 'Schecter Sixx' bass and a pair of his Blublocker sunglasses.
Motley Crue singer Vince Neil doesn't see the point in recording a full-length LP in today's musical climate, but fans can still look forward to hearing some new songs on the soundtrack to an upcoming movie based on the band's memoir, 'The Dirt.' Not that Neil has any idea when that might happen, mind you.
Motley Crue's 'Kickstart My Heart' interrupted Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher J.J. Putz on Saturday night, causing him to spike the ball into the mound during a game against the New York Mets. Even though Vince Neil and the rest of the band weren't actually at the ballpark, their 1989 song managed to cause some chaos on the diamond.
