Who doesn’t like a power ballad, that soft underbelly of a hard rocker, rarely seen in the light of day? You’ve probably heard the story…the power ballad is often the biggest hit for heavier bands, opening their music up to the love-song loving masses.
A portion of Motley Crue's new song can be heard in the new sizzle-reel video trailer for the band's current tour. The song, "All Bad Things Must End," is actually the soundtrack for the video, which you can check out below. "All Bad Things Must End" was recorded with producer James Michael.
Well, look at the bands who were involved in [the 2012 film] Rock of Ages. Their people came to us early and they showed us the movie and we said, “This is a complete farce. It’s a cheesy movie. It has nothing to do with rock. This is like Mamma Mia! with pretend guitars.”
“After this, Mötley’s done!” proclaims Mick Mars. He’s talking about Mötley Crüe’s recently announced Final Tour, which will see the band crisscross the globe—with Alice Cooper in tow for the North American leg—for one last hurrah. It’s a farewell celebration of the highest order, and one that is, Mars assures, truly a farewell.
After more than three decades together, Motley Crue are calling it quits. Officially. In fact, their announcement is so official that they've even signed a "cessation of touring" agreement, which takes effect at the end of 2015, in front of media in Los Angeles today.
The number of guitars that Mick Mars has gone through over the past three decades in the limelight with Mötley Crüe probably rivals the total amount of porn stars that Charlie Sheen has dated. Literally hundreds of instruments passed through his hands in the Eighties alone, from the trusty black 1972 Les Paul Custom that he used to record the band’s early albums to various Kramers, Charvels and Hamers in every imaginable shape.
Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil, 52, was hospitalized Sunday night, the result of a kidney stone attack that struck during Mötley Crüe's set in Sydney, Australia. Neil underwent surgery this morning. According to Setlist.fm, the Crüe were nine songs into their set when Nikki Sixx announced that Neil had been taken to the hospital because he had been experiencing pain all night.
