LMN Pitnews columnist Eddy Metal takes The Editor’s Blog chair for this show:
It looks like the infamous coke-snorting, heroin-doing, groupie-banging legendary rock band Mötley Crüe
will finally head out to pasture. All I can say is, it’s about time. And no, I am not a hater! I love MC! But when performances slip and your singer sounds like total doody and doesn’t sing half of the lyrics, it’s time to re-evaluate your future. Nikki and Tommy are good to go, but poor old Mick with his spinal disease just can’t do this much longer. And MC is Mick Mars
! So it wouldn’t be the same. And Vince just plain doesn’t have it anymore live. Some songs sound decent I admit, but on the old classics that are hard for anyone to sing, he suffers, er, the audience suffers. Dude sounds like a dying cat with pneumonia. But like I said, that shit is hard to sing! Trying singing the verses on key in “Shout At The Devil” and see how well you do! So with all due respect to The Crüe. I agree with this decision to retire the band. I’ve seen some seriously badass MC shows in the past, too. Almost every album tour all the way back to MC at Cardinal Stadium in 1984 with Ozzy. Classic.
So if you wanna see the guys one last time, now is your chance to see one of rocks raunchiest, nastiest, sleeziest and rockin’ metal bands ever! Get your tickets to this show October 14 at The KFC Yum! Center. Tickets
, Alice Cooper
is opening! I saw Alice two years, ago opening for Iron Maiden
in Indy and he was awesome! Alice still has the heart and abilty to kick some butt.
And there is a new band that kicks some serious butt opening the show: The Raskins
, a band comprised of brothers Logan
and Roger Raskin.
These guys are high energy rock n’ roll, mixed with metal and a tad bit of punk thrown in for good measure. The band seems to be making some waves with their new twelve-song, self-titled CD. They just got off a tour with Scott Weiland and Saving Abel
and are super-stoked about opening for Alice Cooper and Motley Crue. Who wouldn’t?
I posted a Raskins video for their song “We Had It All” below. Enjoy!
Here is some old MC in their heyday. Classic US
