    Loved their first two albums, and to a certain extent still like those. Think they've been shiite since Thearte of Pain though.

    I used to love them. I would have seen their farewell tour, but it was too far away. I am in the minority, but I feel that their self-titled album is their best work. Overall, I think that they play second fiddle to GNR and VH, in terms of 80's rock.

    Controversial but I love them. One of the first bands I've gotten into and I still enjoy them to this day. Generation Swine is my favorite album aside from Girls Girls Girls.

    Usually,I'd try and convince you with a Corabi Crue video but I'll say that after Generation Swine is when they started losing me as far as full albums go. I can probably find a few tunes I enjoy from New Tattoo and SOLA but as far as full albums go with a lack of filler,for me that ended with Swine. I don't think even their biggest fans will argue with them hanging it up now. Vince is,well still Vince and he's never been amazing live but some of these newer clips are rough by even his low standards. Tommy hasn't been into playing with Crue for years and is most likely the happiest for it to be over. Nikki was never known as a virtuoso but he can write some solid pop-metal tunes. Mick gets a pass for having a terrible disease and still playing every night at his advanced age. Having said all that,they are still one of my five favorite bands and I'm gonna catch at least one farewell show this year.

    All great points that I agree with 100%.

    If if you label them as a hair band, they're probably one of the best. If one labels them a hard rock/metal band they fall short of their peers.

    I actually like them. They're fucking wild and put on some good shows. At least they're bowing out for the right reasons.

    I bought The Dirt on Kindle a few weeks ago when it was on sale for 1.99. I remember stopping cold in it's tracks once Nikki Sixx said he hated Jeff Beck the last time years ago when I borrowed a library copy, but I've been on an e-book jag lately so I thought what the hell. I've never really warmed up to the music, but I've been hearing about how good the book was for so long so I gave it a chance. I skipped through some of it, but I have to say I liked what I did read.

    I have complicated feelings towards the effect the knowledge of one's personal life can have on their work. I really don't want to turn this into that kind of thread, but I have to say that in hindsight and considering the whole Cosby mess, I can appreciate the fact that each of them owned up to their failings as best as they could in the book, and don't make much excuses for themselves in it. And at times there is some heinous shit that they do, which is even more amazing to me.

    Oddly enough, I think this will make me look at the music a bit deeper, whenever it comes on the radio anyway. I've not been inspired to dig any deeper I'm sorry to say, as Vince Neil's voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I do think Nikki, Tommy and Mick were a pretty tight musical unit and each of them talented in their own ways on their instrument and Nikki with his songwriting. For me sometimes the band rots from the head down, but they are sort of an exception.

    You know something. I had a weird-ass idea about a film version of The Dirt. After seeing The Wolf of Wall Street, I had ideas that what if Martin Scorsese directed a film adaptation of that book. Here's my casting for the Crue. Leonardo diCaprio as Nikki Sixx, Michael Fassbender as Tommy Lee, Ryan Gosling as Vince Neil, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Mick Mars and as Ozzy Osbourne, Robert de Niro.

    Anyone interested in Sixx and loves the Girls Girls Girls album should read the Heroin Diaries. Fantastic, mind fuck reading material.

    This is one of my favorite, most obscure and dehumanizing songs in their catalog. The music video is great too. Also from Girls Girls Girls.

    David Fincher was attached to it at one point. That would have been perfect considering the subjects of his previous work. I think someone else has control of it now, and they want to cast young unknowns for the band. Which makes sense, it's not the kind of story that necessarily needs star power.

    If you like Generation Swine, check out Vince Neil's second album, Carved in Stone from 1995. Unlike his first album, he went for a modern sound. It kind of sounds like the rap-metal that was popular a few years later, but was still very melodic. It's not a classic, but a cool album, and sounds a little like Generation Swine. It was produced by the Dust Brothers.

    Saw the farewell tour a few weeks ago, it was fucking awesome. Highly recommend going if you can. Vince didn't sound too bad either.

    If you guys wanna be awesome and help me win a Motley Crue contest,click on these links while logged into Facebook. I get points for every Crue video you watch (TRIPLE POINTS FOR THE SONG "ALL BAD THINGS" which I actually like) as well as songs you listen to (even 30 second previews count,though Spotify plays are better) and pictures you view. I can only get points from each person once so if you feel the need to watch 'Hooligan's Holiday" ten times that is great but I will only receive points for the first time you do something! Thanks and if I win,I promise to pick a random poster in this thread and mail you one of my AUTHENTIC Vince Neil guitar pics that I caught at a solo show of his over ten years ago!

    My brother went to see them last night (I got him two free tickets, my company has a box office at the arena where the show was held) and this is what Tommy Lee had to say about the show/crowd: https://www.facebook.com/tommyleetv/...53121103052654

    John Corabi is releasing a live album of the 1994 self-titled album, in its entirety. That was their best disc, imho.

    Thanx for the heads-up. Will definitely check it out. And I agree that the self-titled really does stand out musically. Was a great but short era with him.

    Came in the mail today and it sounds awesome. Corabi sounds fantastic, his band is good, the songs are played pretty straightforward but it sounds raw, just as heavy and organic. I loved the 1994 disc (one of the most overlooked albums from the 90's) and am glad that that album and era are being remembered and celebrated by this release.
