About Motley Crue
MÖTLEY CRÜE is The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitar), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) laid the foundation for their inimitable career in the ’80s with their genre-bending music, a mix of anthemic choruses, stadium-sized riffs, punk rock and melodic power, along with their relentless reputation, typifying an excess never before seen in modern music.
But they didn’t stop there.
MÖTLEY CRÜE continued to evolve through the ’90s and beyond, releasing their NY Times best-selling book The Dirt long before it was common and cool for celebrities to have their own tomes. The page-turning rock epic offered a keyhole view into life in The CRÜE. It is currently being adapted into a feature film by noted director Jeff Tremaine.
MÖTLEY CRÜE reinvented itself yet again through the ’00s and the present decade by continually doing new things, such as launching a branded tour known as Crüefest. Also, The CRÜE was the first band to do a rock residency in Las Vegas, something its peers, DefLeppard and Guns N’ Roses, did after them. Their sold-out stint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino further elevated MÖTLEY CRÜE ‘s mythos, demonstrating the fact that they can do anything. They’ve also executed impressive, innovative live production, such as Lee’s roller coaster, which sends him around a 360-degree loop during his drum solo.
