"The Story Of... Motley Crue" premieres Tuesday, June 24 @ 9pm & midnight ET on MuchMoreMusic in Canada to coincide with the release of "Saints of Los Angeles" - 11 years to the day the band released their last studio album with the original line-up (1997's "Generation Swine").

Here's the show description:

"They've courted controversy for close to 3 decades and now the world's most notorious rock band is back for another round. The Story Of… Motley Crue tracks the group from the gutters of the Sunset Strip, to pioneers of glam and hair metal into self-made dirty-filthy millionaires with over 50 million albums sold. Motley's career careened downhill when the music business moved on without their genre and while they became known more for making headlines for their Hollywood hook-ups rather than for their music and while each member spiralled into his own personal hell of addiction, abuse and arrests. Miraculously Motley survived the car crashes, the changing industry, their own volatile relationships and the overindulgences in drugs, booze and girls, girls, girls. Now they are back and better than ever in 2008 with their own touring festival and first studio album with the original line-up in over 10 years 'Saints of Los Angeles.' This show boasts an exclusive new interview with the band at Motley Crue's private rehearsal space in LA granted only to MuchMoreMusic, rare commentary by Neil Strauss, author of the best-selling biography 'The Dirt' and archived moments that will make you want to wash your hands."

So long as we are spared the sanctimonious up-our-own-ass mid-life crisis reformed alcoholic sh**e that permeates other rock-documentries.
