Motley Crue

I choose Mötley Crüe to talk, because is one of the most quality hard rock bands and I, as a hard rock fan, was obliged to post something about them. I love to put one CD where is there a very famous song of Mötley Crüe, “Kickstart My Heart”, I put on the maximum volume and it’s done a party on my own house. I jump, shout with their songs. My neighbor doesn’t like so much idea like I do, but what can they do? Come on, it is Mötley Crüe! Lets rock!

Now I will introduce Mötley Crüe:

Band Members:
- Nikki Sixx
- Mick Mars
- Vince Neil
- Tommy Lee

They are a hard rock band formed in 1981 founded by Nikki Sixx (bass guitarist) and the drummer Tommy Lee (He was married to actresses Heather Locklear and Pamela Anderson, with whom he has two children.).
This band is well famous for living lifestyles of their members that aren’t regular for us. It is amazing the fact that all the members have had numerous brushes with the law, spent time in jail, many problems with alcohol and drugs, had countless escapades with women, and are heavily tattooed.

Did you remember when I spoke of “Kickstart My Heart”?
On December 21, 1987, Sixx suffered a heroin overdose. He was declared legally dead on the way to the hospital, but the medic, who was a Crüe fan, revived Sixx by giving him two shots of adrenaline to the heart, bringing him back to life. His two minutes in death were the inspiration for the song "Kickstart My Heart", that was a hit and which was featured on their album Dr. Feelgood. From 1986 to 1987, Sixx kept a daily diary of his heroin addiction and eventually entered rehab in January, 1988.

Dr.Feelgood sucess.
After drugs problems, in 1989, Mötley Crüe reached its peak popularity with the release of their fifth album, Dr. Feelgood, on September 1. On October 14 of that year, it became a No. 1 album and stayed on the charts for “only” 109 weeks after its release. The band members told to media this album relate the process of their collective push for sobriety. The song Dr. Feelgood and Kickstart My Heart were both nominated for Grammys in the Best Hard Rock Category. They did find some success at the American Music Awards, as Dr. Feelgood was nominated twice for Favorite Hard Rock/Metal Award. They were also nominated twice for Favorite Hard Rock/Metal Artist.
