    That was hard to watch. The last time I saw the crue was in the early 2000’s and he didn’t sound like that.

    Fair point. I think though itís spectacular stage shows that allowed us to ignore him, I donít think it was intentional on their part to sidetrack the audience.

    Ha. Itís too easy to justify nailing this guy as his thing was his sex appeal, not talent.

    Itís pretty obvious to me that it was not his idea to stop MC.

    So... let’s look at Motley: a singer who by all objectivity couldn’t sing, a bassist who, until just after their first major label release, literally couldn’t play the instrument, a guitarist who who would’ve preferred to be in a blues band and a drummer... well, T-Bone is awesome... point being- the explosions were 100% purposefully a distraction.

    Well.....

    When I saw them back in the day (theatre of pain tour with Loudness), they absolutely killed it. Time does take it’s toll though.

    Crazy, especially since Sixx pretty much wrote all of the songs.

    Never said he wasn’t a decent songwriter.

    They are a classic example of “The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts.”.

    Maybe Metallica could use some “pyrotechnics”.

    Totally agree. I always liked them the best of the "Hair Metal" era groups, they had the best songs IMO and a unique sound where you always knew it was them. Tommy Lee is also vastly superior to most drummers of that era.

    The guys I'm playing with both said " we're huge CrŁe fans. With the release of The Dirt I suggested learning Live Wire. They both then said " I've never heard that song before! " wtf?

    = not a CrŁe fan at all. To me if you don't know the first ( best IMO ) album, you don't know them at all!

    Live wire and shout are both outstanding albums. Everything after that is on a downward path. Millionaires making serious rock music just doesn’t jive.

    There are some exceptions though....
