MOTLEY CRUE's 'Dr Feelgood Hits 30

The world’s most notorious rock band, Mötley Crüe, is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their landmark album Dr. Feelgood
With charting hit singles including “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Without You,” “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)” and “Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.),” Dr. Feelgood has been the band’s biggest album to date. The record has sold more than six million copies in the U.S. alone going 6x platinum, is certified 3x platinum in Canada, Gold in the UK and in Switzerland and spent 109 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at #1.
The band also earned Grammy nominations for “Dr. Feelgood” (1990) and “Kickstart My Heart”(1991) in the Best Rock Performance category and won Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album for the record at the American Music Awards (1991).
In addition to being the biggest album of the band’s career, Dr. Feelgood has had a tremendous effect on pop culture. Inspired by Nikki Sixx’ near-death overdose, the autobiographical “Kickstart My Heart” dives into the band’s sobriety. Over the last 30 years, Sixx has used his platform to be a part of the drug awareness and recovery conversation, an issue which continues to be relevant today more than ever.
Says Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx: “After feeling robbed of a #1 album with Girls Girls Girls, the band was hell bent on topping ourselves on every level. Bringing in Bob Rock to produce and push us musically and lyrically was just what the doctor ordered...The band was clean, lean and sober and this album has some of our proudest work.”
Mötley Crüe has not only influenced musical trends, but have also played a key role in the fashion culture of the 80’s. Their iconic imagery continues to be a staple with rock apparel and fashion brands. In honor of its 30th anniversary, and in response to the frequent call from fans for more classic Mötley Crüe, an anniversary line of Dr. Feelgood apparel featuring the album’s iconic artwork will be available. Furthermore, a 30th Anniversary edition is being released featuring new CD and vinyl packaging as well as a deluxe edition including colored vinyl, three 7” picture discs, Dr. bag, deck of cards, prescription notepad and drumstick pens, pins, guitar picks, band aids, and more.

The big Dr. Feelgood anniversary comes on the heels of the band’s hugely successful Netflix biopic “The Dirt” which tells the cautionary tale of the world’s most notorious rock band. The biopic they thought would never get made is confounding all of the critics, as Mötley Crüe finds a new audience, who have given “The Dirt” a 95% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “It's great seeing another new generation discovering this classic album since our hit movie “The Dirt” on Netflix...” adds Sixx. The film is based on the band’s 2001 biography by the same name. After the movie launched earlier this year the book re-entered the New York Times Top 10 bestseller lists 18 years after its original release.
Viewers of the movie took to Shazam, Apple Music, and Spotify to discover/re-discover Mötley Crüe’s catalog. The momentum of the film caused rapid growth with Google Searches increasing by 4300% and sales going up by 2000%, with albums including The Dirt Soundtrack, Dr. Feelgood, Too Fast For Love, and Greatest Hits charting on iTunes since the release of the film.
Fans can also listen to The Dirt as an audiobook now for the first time. Like the movie, the book/audiobook gives fans glimpses into the band’s crazy world of backstage scandals, celebrity love affairs, roller-coaster drug addictions, and immortal music. The autobiography of Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars features the full spectrum of sin and success, as well as a cautionary tale about the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.

‘Cause & Effect: MOTLEY CRUE’ Author Chris Akin Explores Classic Album

By Chris Akin CLEVELAND - Acclaimed rock critic and controversial host of The Classic Metal Show Chris Akin has authored his latest book CAUSE & EFFECT: MOTLEY CRUE due November 24. 
"MOTLEY CRUE '94 has been the subject of conversation with so many people in my life," states Chris Akin "since the day it was released back in March of '94. That has never waned. Even after all this time, there are people with such hard opinions of it one way or the other. For me, writing CAUSE & EFFECT: MOTLEY CRUE allowed me to share thoughts and feelings about this monumental release with a larger portion of people that still care after all this time. Whether it's remembering personal stories that many of these songs had or revisiting the history of MOTLEY CRUE in their most tumultuous moment, CAUSE & EFFECT: MOTLEY CRUE allowed me to share the experience of one of my all-time favorite releases with the masses." 
Chris Akin continues his series of cause/effect books. "The first was about Metallica's BLACK album, said Akin.  "The other titles I'm working on are about Judas Priest's TURBO, Megadeth's RISK and Nine Inch Nails' THE FRAGILE.  I wanted to write these to profile releases that changed something dramatically. With the BLACK album, it changed not only Metallica's fanbase, but how heavy music was played on the radio.  With the second book in the series MOTLEY CRUE, it divided the fanbase, as well as leading all their contemporaries down a path that failed nearly all of them.  That said, with this album, it's my favorite thing that says "MOTLEY CRUE" on the cover.  I think the public just got it wrong with this one."
Pre-Orders for CAUSE & EFFECT: MOTLEY CRUE  are available in various packages:
Paperback - $7.99

MOTLEY CRUE's Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx Celebrate Triple X Anniversary Of Girls Girls Girls

Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Dallas, TX - JUNE 21, 2017. North American syndicated rock radio show IN THE STUDIO with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands  goes one on one with Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx for the sometimes hilarious, sometimes shocking story behind Motley Crue’s four million-seller Girls Girls Girls.
A product of the ‘80s Hollywood Sunset Strip, Motley Crue were the quintessential LA hair metal band. Their string of hit albums and crossover songs on radio and MTV was only matched by their over the top live show, mounting legal bills and alarming drug use. By 1987 the band was dancing on a fine line between real life or death. Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil share their stories with IN THE STUDIO producer and host Redbeard.
“We were a mess. I know we didn’t go overseas (on Girls Girls Girls tour), because the management said, ‘You guys go, and somebody’s not coming back. Or if they do, they’re coming back in a body bag... We were operating like a punk band! We were completely out of control.”  - Nikki Sixx
"I remember my first gig. It was at my parents' house. First time I ever sang in front of anybody. I was in a band called Rock Candy. I thought my parents were going out of town for the night. So I had a small party of like 500 people (laughs). We're just jamming away, the place is packed, people jumping off the roof into the pool... It was a good time, but then my parents came home."  - Vince Neil

Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Mick Mars InTheStudio For 25th Anniversary Of Dr. Feelgood

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Mick Mars Make House Call InTheStudio For 25th Anniversary Of Motley Crue's # 1 Album Dr. Feelgood

Dallas, TX - Oct 14, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  celebrates the 25th anniversary of Motley Crue's 1989 #1 seller Dr. Feelgood.

The '80s was a decade of excess and Motley Crue was its poster child and willing participant.  Their reckless abandonment and debauchery has been well documented, but what makes the Motley Crue story so fascinating is that with all the increasing mayhem came an unbelievable string of hit songs and albums.

The Crue's 1987 album Girls, Girls, Girls was a #4 seller despite the band's drug and alcohol- fueled crazy existence, but eventually, one by one, the members of Motley Crue all found help for their substance issues. With the newly found clarity, the songs which Nikki Sixx composed and which singer Vince Neil, piledriver drummer Tommy Lee, and guitar monster Mick Mars recorded including 'Kickstart My Heart', 'Same Ol' Situation', 'Without You' and the groove thing 'Dr. Feelgood' blew every previous Motley Crue standard away, notching the # 1 album in America with over six million albums sold.

Sobriety didn't stop the party on the road though, but it did allow them to remember it! The Dr. Feelgood tour would become the band's biggest production ever,as Nikki Sixx tells InTheStudio host Redbeard.

'Dr. Feelgood tour, at the time 1989 ,(cost) $325,000 a week just to break even. A million two a month, and were gone for fifteen months. So we spent about $20 million just entertaining.  So anything after that was ours.  'Wow, you need a better business plan.  What's your exit strategy?  Pee in the corner and blow everything up'.' (laughs)

TOTO, JUDAS PRIEST & MOTLEY CRUE For Sweden Rock Fest 2015

Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Late Saturday night, in front of a live audience of 2000 Rockbåten rock cruise passengers, the first acts confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival were announced. 19 out of a total of around 90 acts were presented in a nine minute video trailer which can be seen here:

Mötley Crüe have announced their retirement after December 31st 2015. This summer, their show at Sweden Rock Festival will be their only in Scandinavia.  

Judas Priest have always received a royal welcome by the Sweden Rock audience, so it is no wonder that their only show in Sweden next summer will be played in Sölvesborg. 

Toto have been around for 35 years, but have never played the Sweden Rock Festival. Next summer, the wait is over!

Backyard Babies put their career on ice indefinitely in the spring of 2010. Soon, they will be back with a new album and their return to the stages will begin at Sweden Rock, where the band has never set foot before. "We are absolutely psyched!" comments front man Nicke Borg and guitarist Dregen. 

HammerFallD-A-D and Dark Tranquillity are Sweden Rock audience favourites and we are happy to have them back.  Thrash metal legends Nuclear Assault have not played in Sweden in more than 20 years but are now making their only Scandinavian appearance next year at Sweden Rock. Nearly 40 years have passed since the original line-up of Lucifer's Friend played together. The group were pioneers of heavy 70´s hard rock - now they are reunited. With John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) on vocals, of course.

Also announced are The AngelsExciterRock GoddessH.E.A.TWolfThe QuireboysDelainTorsson and Steve n' Seagulls.

The remaining 70 artists will be announced as they get confirmed throughout the autumn and winter. Tickets and more info can be found at
