The Rockstar Ramblings: #RIPMotleyCrue

This week Motley Crue announced their retirement, sort of. Via a press conference the band announced a retirement that would begin after a two-year tour. Apparently they signed a contract that is completely valid unless they all decide to void or write up a new contract. Anyway, there is going to be a U.S. and International tour, maybe a new album, and a country tribute album. I’m sure the country tribute album will bring it all together. More...

Bands That You Never Gave a Chance

My personal confessions are less about what I enjoy that would shred my credibility through a wood chipper and more about which bands I used to despise that I'd never talk shit about today. Namely, I used to really hate System of a Down, Iron Maiden, Behemoth and Chimaira. After only hearing a handful of songs from each, I decided that all were overrated before actually giving their discography a real chance.

Holy shit did I regret that later on after listening to Chimaira's self-titled album, Iron Maiden's “Powerslave”, “Zos Kia Cultus,” and the entirety of “Toxicity” (although I still maintain that “Chop Suey” has always been overrated and overplayed and I'm not a fan of the title track on “Resurrection”).

It's hard to look at yourself after talking shit about music that you were completely ignorant about. Eventually, I moved on to "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son,” “Resurrection,” and “Steal This Album” and realized that I was talking out my ass and sounded like one of those guys who calls eurodance “techno” but has never listened to speedcore or confuses hip-hop with R&B.

KISS/Motley Crue Pyrotechnics Truck Crashes

The truck carrying all of the pyrotechnics equipment to the KISS/Motley Crue concert at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan was involved in an accident on the highway and overturned. Nobody was hurt, and both bands have rescheduled their concert for September 6th.

Nikki Sixx shared a few tweets and photos of the crash site on his twitter page, which you can access by reading the full article at this location. Refunds are available to those concertgoers who are not able to reschedule for the following night's show. Both bands issued a joint statement that appeared on KISS Online, which follows below.

"On its way to Detroit, our pyro truck was involved in an accident and flipped, spilling our gear all along the freeway. We owe you the show you expect and deserve, so we’ve jointly decided to give our crews the 24 hours necessary to piece everything together to make it possible. The party is now Thursday night, September 6th. See you there!"

The Rockstar Ramblings: Dysfunction is my Business

Steven Adler (ex-Guns N’ Roses) is back with his new band named Adler and a new single titled “The One You Hated.” The band insists that the band is about a man/woman relationship and not what we all assume: heroin. Of course, I guess it could be about Axl Rose as well, or maybe the song is about Steven from the mindset of Celebrity Rehab’s Dr. Drew. Either way you look at it, Steven has an impressive memory catalog to pull inspiration from… More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Vince Neil’s Strip Club

I picture Vince Neil kicking it in his backyard with a couple of buddies (and a couple of groupies, one young, one looking somewhat weathered), sharing a joint and several Budweiser beers, when someone leans in and asks Neil, “So, what’s next?” Vince ponders the rock and roll bar, his tequila business, the tattoo shops, and the charter airline business. Vince takes a long pull from his can of Bud and his eyes open up wide. More...

Motley Crue To Record New Song

American glam metal legends Motley Crue has entered drummer Tommy Lee's Atrium Studio today to begin recording a brand new song, their first new material since the 2008 studio album, "Saints of Los Angeles." A message from bass player Nikki Sixx reads as follows:

"Mötley Crüe and the Crüeheads have pretty much taken over Vegas the last few weeks... It really feels like we're riding the positive chaos right now. We just did a huge new photo shoot, were finishing up a brand new Crüe song for summer (that will lead to an full album after), European headline shows on festivals and in arenas too, but none of this would happen without you guys. Thank you."

The Rockstar Ramblings: Mad Men

Last Sunday both Motley Crue and The Darkness were featured in Super Bowl ads. They aren’t the first from their genre to sell out, or allow the semi-truck full of cash back up into their driveway, nor will they be the last. Over the past few years a lot of rockers from the eighties have partnered with Madison Avenue to create brief whore-like relationships. This week a look at the new Super Bowl commercials, and a few blasts from the past commercials: More...
