There is perhaps no rock or metal autobiography more infamous than Motley Crue's 'The Dirt - Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band.' A collaborative writing project from Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee; 'The Dirt' is 448 pages of pure debauchery in the name of rock 'n' roll, and 'Jackass' guru Jeff Tremaine has just signed on to direct a biopic based on 'The Dirt.'
The topic of Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars' health has been a talking point amongst fans for a very long time. Within the past few years, various members of Motley Crue have noted Mars' condition as the reason they will soon call it quits, but Mick Mars has denounced these statements yet again.
Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and Nicolas Cage's son Weston, who is a notable black metal musician, reportedly had a bit of an altercation over the weekend which nearly ended in fisticuffs. After a Motley Crue performance on Sept. 22, a backstage brawl nearly occurred after Weston was reportedly blocking the entrance to Lee's dressing room.
Motley Crue kicked off their second Las Vegas residency earlier this week (Sept. 18) at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Leading up to the engagement, singer Vince Neil took some time to talk about their all-new, 'Red Hot' production and the personal challenges of their nightly setlist.
The back-and-forth between Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has continued through the weekend. After Bach stated via his Twitter account that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in Motley Crue, Sixx quickly claimed that Bach was never offered the gig. Each side has been attempting to win the argument ever since, and there's a new chapter to report in the Bach vs. Sixx saga.
According to former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, "Nikki Sixx's 'claim' that Sebastian Bach's 'claim' is 'absolutely not true' is 'absolutely not true.'" We assume you read that last sentence about half-a-dozen times before moving forward, so we'll do our best to clarify the confusion which is stirring between Bach and Sixx.
A short while ago, former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach claimed that he was asked to join Motley Crue as Vince Neil's replacement after the singer was fired in 1992. He even teased that the full story may be revealed in a future autobiography. However, Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has refuted Bach's claims, stating that it's "absolutely not true."
