North American syndicated rock radio show “In The Studio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands” goes one on one with Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx for the sometimes hilarious, sometimes shocking story behind MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s four-million-seller “Girls Girls Girls”.
A product of the ’80s Hollywood Sunset Strip, MÖTLEY CRÜE were the quintessential L.A. hair metal band. Their string of hit albums and crossover songs on radio and MTV was only matched by their over the top live show, mounting legal bills, and alarming drug use. By 1987, the band was dancing on a fine line between real life or death. As MÖTLEY CRÜE prepares to criss-cross Europe, Scandinavia, and the U.S. this summer with KISS, Nikki Sixx tells show host Redbeard just what he remembers about the No. 2 -charting Billboard album “Girls Girls Girls”.
“We were a mess,” he said. “I know we didn’t go overseas, because the management said, ‘You guys go, and somebody’s not coming back. Or if they do, they’re coming back in a body bag… We were operating like a punk band! We were completely out of control.”
“In The Studio” is syndicated on over 50 radio stations across North America.
The MÖTLEY CRÜE/“In The Studio” program will air on radio this weekend.
