Metal Magazine added this double-sided 4-page to their Motley tribute contents. The Shout At The Devil shot (top image) from their European tour in 1984 was the obvious choice for which side made my walls. The reverse side has some shots from the band’s then recent performance in Moscow in August of 1989 & a Tommy photo from 1987.
Another trademark of the Rock tribute mag was the live performance photo section. For some reason Metal Magazine only had access to photos from the Theatre to Dr. Feelgood tours (& a Tommy photo from the Feelgood video set).
Metal Magazine branched off from Creem in 1982, the year the Crue’s debut Too Fast For Love was re-released with a new mix by Elektra records & the magazine followed the band closely in the intervening 7 years. ‘The Totally Cool History of Motley Crue’ is a collection of various quotations from & concerning our Crue. Dig the vintage pics from the early days . . .

Motley Crue trivia quizzes seemed to be legion in those days & we’ll be showcasing some more of ‘em down the road. Give this one a try & see how you do.
