After more than a decade together and several years apart, Mötley Crüe is back with all the original members and all the chemistry that makes this
band so exciting. As a teenager, I allowed this band to somewhat rule my
existance. In fact, I convinced myself at a young age that I would someday marry
bassist Nikki Sixx. The proposal has not happened yet, but I still have hope.
Mötley Crüe released a new album Feb 1. The two-disc set contains
all their greatest hits and three new songs. I love the album because it brings
back so many great memories of being young and crazy. I also love the idea of
people who have not been fans of the Crüe for too long, being able to hear some
of their very earliest music from "Too Fast For Love" and "Shout at the Devil."
The new songs definitely sound like old-school Crüe with a new twist. I think
the new songs sound a bit more hardcore.
Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee still sound like they have
mastered their instruments. Age has not had a negative effect on this band - they seem to have gotten better with age.
Mötley Crüe will roll into Little Rock's Alltel Arena Sept. 23 for what will be a grand
event. They have plans for a new studio album to be released in the near future. Make plans to attend the show
- I am sure the band will aim to please!
