So we lost a drummer, but a drummer dumb enough to get into a sports car driven by a loaded Vince Neil.

Sounds like the world won twice.

"Andy McCoy has been on a rant saying I never thanked him for saving my life after a heroin overdose," he writes. "It's true. I also never thanked him for getting me the drugs during my deadly addiction that night. I get it, he's just trying to sell a book, album or club tour"

Ooooh boy..

CSB: I accidentally hung out with Nikki Sixx for a couple hours, back nearly a decade ago. It was at a bar in Pacific Beach, with various tribute bands playing. I didn't know who he was at the time, but we were the only two people in the venue not getting drunk. A friend pulled me aside and drunkenly yelled "that's Nikki Sixx you've been talking to!". He seemed overly concerned about his 2nd Ammendment rights being taken away. After learning more about his history, I honestly don't think he should be allowed around weapons unsupervised (as in, I believe he needs to be well regulated). I haven't followed his life, but I'll just assume he didn't get less focused on weapons in these last several years.

I was at the last ever Hanoi Rocks show, so I am really getting a kick out of....

WFT is with the editor, writing an article about Hanoi Rocks and Motley Crue, and not mentioning the elephant in the room?

That HR had a chance to break big, lost their drummer because of Vince Neil and then watched many bands just like them (maybe not as good?) clean up?

I mean seriously, next thing you know Rolling Stone will write an article about how Jackie O complained that Senator John Connelly had his front seat too far back during a car ride once back in Dallas.

drewogatory: Do Tele players really want a Fender Les Paul tho?


Not if they already have a Les Paul.

My first axe was a Tele.  It was all I could afford and in the 80's you couldn't find anything that was less cool than a Telecaster.

I swapped out more pickups on that thing trying to make it sound like anything but a Telecaster.  Just came shy of carving it up too.

Eventually I bought other guitars, a few Strats, a few Les Pauls, a 335 and a few shredders.  The Tele went into its case for a decade or so.

Then one day I decided to gut the Tele, new wiring, Duncan 59' in the bridge and a Stack in the neck.  Went with coil taps as well.  It totally tamed the "ice pick in the ear" sound and lo and behold I had the nicest sounding Tele I'd ever laid hands on.

It needs a fret job and I'm constantly trying to track down another one from that year and series hoping that it can be a backup that I don't worry about gigging with.

It's a great axe, probably one of the nicest I've owned which is saying something considering I own vintage Les Pauls, Strats and other high-end gear.

The big problem is that if you're not on board with that Tele sound from the beginning then you're just going to be let down.

Sure, you can drive nails with a wrench but there are better ways of doing that job.

Agreed.

Despite never being a fan of Motley Crue, I was fascinated by both the Tommy and Pam series and that movie "The Dirt" from a few years back.

Just a dumb, colorful, mindlessly fun era that's fun to look at, like the 60s.  But with admittedly worse drugs.

Same here! I've read every rock bio ever written and for some reason this era of douchebag stuffed garbage sacks is so entertaining to read about. They're not funny or deep and I suspect they're all on the sociopath spectum and I still can't bear to listen to a minute of their awful music, but I know more about them any person should. My super power is LA dirtbags from 1979-1992.

Absolutely one of my favorite books ever is Slash's autobiography. If you have any interest in rock music in general, it's a must-read. Just a treasure trove of stories about his interactions with everyone from Sly Stone to David Bowie to Michael Jackson.

Seriously, his life is like Forrest Gump but if Forrest had done all of Jenny's drugs.

Mentioning a specific story he claims Sixx made up, McCoy said: "I saved the guy's life... I farking got him revived, got his heart beating again. And the thank you I've gotten has been de nada. I mean, de nada. And that makes him a second-class citizen in my eyes. 'Cos he only thinks about the buck."

Ha, no NWA did, so they excised material that depicted them in a bad light, like the rest of the band attacking Dee Barnes, host of the syndicated "Pump It Up", during their interview 'cause she profiled the departed, & then reviled, Ice Cube. Dee Barnes cameraman was F. Gary Gray...who directed "Straight Outta Compton"

Slash didn't say so in the book, but there's an almost certain chance that Bowie farked his mom. He might have just gone over to their house to get his measurements taken for a movie costume, but c'mon. It's Bowie.

Accessibility may have been why the car was changed. There's a lot more mint looking early 80s Corvettes than there are Panteras.

It was impressive enough that the production was able to find a mint condition Stutz Black Hawk.

I mean let's be real, it's not like Vince Neil was ever any sort of effective vocalist. It's just that on their early stuff when they were bashing the music out punk-style, it didn't really matter, so it was still good.
