Motley Crue and Jack Daniel’s Bring Charity to Sunset Strip Music Festival
The fourth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival will rock the Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Calif., next week from Aug. 18-20. This year, the festival has chosen Motley Crue as its official honoree and will celebrate the influence they’ve had on the famed boulevard.
As part of the celebration, Motley Crue have teamed up with Jack Daniel’s to bring a special barrel of their world famous Tennessee whiskey to the event; and all for a good cause. The commemorative Jack Daniel’s whiskey bottles were donated by the kings of whiskey to the Skylar Neil Foundation, the charitable foundation founded by lead singer Vince Neil honoring his daughter Skylar who passed away after her battle with cancer in 1995.
The festival will have 290 special-edition bottles on hand to offer up to fans who want to take home a little part of history in return for a small donation. Each bottle comes with an engraved “Specially Selected for Motley Crue” medallion. Taste testing might not be an option but Jack Daniel's Master Taster Jeff Norman says that “the whiskey is particularly well balanced with a hint of soft oak, caramel and vanilla and a pleasing spicy oak finish – the perfect accompaniment for enjoying some serious rock 'n' roll.”
In other Crue news, Vince Neil's trial on a misdemeanor battery charge involving an ex-girlfriend has been delayed until November after the singer was granted an emergency continuance.
