This baby came out just before we heard of the Vince split in 1992. The folks at Superstar Special gave us this Motley tribute as well as ‘Other Action Metal’ with Anthrax, G n’ R & L.A. Guns getting in on said action (only the Crue segment is featured here).
Pin-up mania with shots from the Dr. Feelgood era.
We don’t learn much about the tribute from editor Mike Greenblatt’s note but I know one of the main sources for this edition was Metal Edge Magazine. I already had several of the pin-ups & articles from when they were originally published.
The following trip through the Crue years found its way into several Motley tribute magazines.
Fun to see the Crue with a bunch of famous & not-so-famous ‘80s figures. The bad boys of Rock knew how to make friends.
With the success of Dr. Feelgood you saw the boys rub shoulders with more famous & iconic celebrities like Sylvester Stallone, Arsenio Hall & Willie Nelson.
Above is a solid block of Sixx. Nikki quotations through the 1980s & then pics of the man from the Feelgood & Shout At The Devil eras from before Nikki learned to eat his food with a fork.
