Mötley Crüe on Thrash Hits

Did Gene Simmons just accidentally leak a Download Festival line-up announcement? (Answer: Yes)

November 11th, 2014

From the KISS frontman’s personal Twitter account

Oh Gene.

This is probably why you shouldn’t let ageing rockstars setup their own pre-dated scheduled tweets. The offending tweet has since been deleted, but hey, nothing ever really gets deleted on the internet.

UPDATED (AGAIN):

But of course.ThatsNotWhatTrolling-Means

Hmmmmmmm. Riiiiight.

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Uh-oh – we’re dealing with some Serious Stuff on this episode of the podcast. This week, Hugh is joined by Tom Doyle as they take a look at the unpleasant creeping tolerance for casual racism, sexism, homophobia and hate that has creeped into the fandom of modern metal, rock, and punk, and also at significant sections of the community’s unwillingness to recognise or address it in a meaningful way. Yeah, it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Where is Def Leppard? Where is Mötley Crüe? When Steel Panther asked these questions in their debut single ‘Death To All But Metal’ – little would they have known that a few years later, they would actually be on tour with them.

Mötley Crüe wrote some of the best songs ever for strippers to wiggle their bums to. For this we’re really thankful. Bassist, Nikki Sixx is a bona fide Rock Icon and his latest press release says he’s a Syndicated Radio Show Host as well. That’s great.

More importantly, on 02 May 2011, Sixx is releasing a book called This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx. It just rolls off the tongue. Even better is there will be an 11-track CD companion to the book from SIXX:AM. Combo.

A collection of these are showcased in the 1989 LP Dr. Feelgood which has been revamped into a deluxe edition 20 years after its initial release.
