Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil Discuss ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and more on ‘In The Studio’ on its 25th anniversary
Dallas, TX – MAY 22, 2012. North American syndicated rock radio show InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands goes one on one with Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx for the sometimes hilarious, sometimes shocking story behind Motley Crue’s four million-seller Girls Girls Girls. A product of the ‘80s Hollywood Sunset Strip, Motley Crue were the quintessential LA hair metal band. Their string of hit albums and crossover songs on radio and MTV was only matched by their over the top live show, mounting legal bills, and alarming drug use. By 1987 the band was dancing on a fine line between real life or death. As Motley Crue prepares to criss-cross Europe, Scandinavia, and the U.S. this Summer with KISS, Nikki Sixx tells show host Redbeard just what he remembers about the #2-charting Billboard album Girls Girls Girls:
“We were a mess. I know we didn’t go overseas, because the management said, ‘You guys go, and somebody’s not coming back. Or if they do, they’re coming back in a body bag… We were operating like a punk band! We were completely out of control.”
InTheStudio is syndicated on over 50 radio stations across North America. The MOTLEY CRUE/ InTheStudio program will air on radio this weekend.
