This past weekend, Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx shared the tragic news that his mother Deana Richards had passed away at the age of 74. While the details regarding her death were very scarce, Sixx has since taken to Facebook to thank his fans for their support throughout this difficult time.
After nine seasons, 'The Office' closed up shop last night (May 17), but not without giving the cast of characters a hard-rocking send off. The finale centered around a pair of events -- Dwight and Angela's wedding and the shooting of DVD bonus content for the documentary -- with the office co-workers reuniting a full year after the series penultimate episode. As expected for a series finale, there were a number of poignant moments, and luckily for rock fans they were soundtracked by some harder rocking favorites.
On May 15, 1987, Motley Crue revved things up once again, focusing primarily on the excesses they enjoyed at the height of their fame in song. The disc churned out several hard-rocking favorites and we're asking you in this Readers Poll to tell us which song off this classic album is your favorite.
Motley Crue's '80s excess is legendary and it really peaked out on Dec. 23, 1987 when the band's bassist Nikki Sixx was declared legally dead of an overdose before he was eventually revived. While Motley Crue had been highly successful prior to Sixx's overdose, it should be noted that arguably the band's most successful release, 'Dr. Feelgood,' came after the incident.
Nikki Sixx is a man of many passions -- music, radio host, writing and in recent years photography. The Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M. bassist has increasingly shared his photographic exploits over the years and he's now partnered with Leica Camera to shoot photos for a two-part interview and photography series.
The timing is right for Motley Crue's Tommy Lee to speak up as the band rolls into Calgary for a show this week. Lee, who is an avid animal rights supporter, has penned an open letter to the Honorable Premier of Alberta, Alison Redford, asking for her support in putting an end to the long running Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races.
