We’re entering Dr. Feelgood territory again with this post. 1980s teeny-bopper Metal & Hard Rock magazines loved to give fans all the information they ever needed about their Rock N’ Roll heroes. Crue were a perfect combination of image & legend. These short chronologies & collections of Crue quotations were little shots of information we would read more at length in their written biographies & many biographical video documentaries from the last 20 years. These are 2-sided pin-ups.

There’s a lot of little mistakes in some of that information but you get the idea. The Crue were at the mercy of their own reputation & however inaccurately some of these fly-by-night publications reported, at least they spelled the band’s name correctly.
Here’s some more vintage Crue & we leave you with a YouTube video of a Much More Music segment about Heavy Metal music from 1987. The Canadian interviewer Denise Donlon is pretty hard on them, watch Vince squirm when she asks why the band isn’t ending their Girls, Girls Girls shows with a warning about the dangers of drunk driving!! That’d be a good show.
