Sixx:A.M. releases “Lies of the Beautiful People”

February 20th, 2011



CLICK HERE to watch and listen to Sixx:AM’s, “Lies of the Beautiful People”.

Well, the book and album are finally done. They fit together like a nice little puzzle yet somehow feel like the pieces were cut out of flesh with a razorblade. What I find interesting is that as much as I want them to mirror each other, they both stand on their own. They influence each other as much as possible yet each is strong and independent, from the visual stimulation in the photography to the lyrical content in the songs. To say that this project has been overwhelming would be an understatement. But the one thing that keeps tugging at my curiosity is that if I find beauty in all these places that most deem “Freakish” and “Macabre” then why do I also, at times, seek out beauty in what society calls beautiful? Am I contradicting myself or am I able to actually look beneath the surface when others sometimes can’t? This is a good question. Make no mistake when I refer to “The lies of beautiful people” I mean what I say but I am also saying look beneath the skin. I do not and will not attack the exterior of anybody but my intention is to pull back the veil on your internal truth. We need not worry if we are black, white, amputated, burned, maimed, a fashion model, or even have the face of Hollywood’s latest leading man… We are who we are… Either poisonous and evil or honest and willing… Willing to make a difference… I haven’t led the life of a saint nor do I intend on it now. That’s not what this is about. There were some things that needed to be said… Unbeknownst to me, they would spread across both a book and an album. I imagine that Sixx:A.M. and the book both stand to take a few shots in the jaw, a few bricks in the face. I know, speaking for myself, James, and DJ, that we welcome the feedback. Maybe, just maybe, everybody will take a hard, cold, eye opening look under the hood, so to speak as we have…

MÖTLEY CRÜE – First Demo: “Toast of The Town”

October 27th, 2010

TMD has obtained an extremely rare studio version of the track “Toast of The Town” from the very first MÖTLEY CRÜE demo session produced in early 1981, which subsequently became the act’s  debut single “Stick to Your Guns/Toast of the Town,” that was put out on their own label, Leathür Records. The young and fearless metal act had scored a pressing & distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torrance, CA.

The track was left off CRÜE’s legendary debut album Too Fast For Love which was released in December of 1981 but then was included in the re-released version of TFFL in 2003 when Elektra Records ordered TFFL complete re-mixes to include “Stick to Your Guns” and “Toast of the Town”.

MÖTLEY CRÜE – Rare 1981 “Live Wire” Audience Recording

October 24th, 2010

Motley Crue - old promo photo 1981/82

TMD has obtained one of the earliest known live audience recordings of legendary MÖTLEY CRÜE performing “Live Wire” at the Whisky A-Go-Go in West Hollywood, California on December 11, 1981.

Mötley Crüe was founded on January 17, 1981 when bass player Nikki Sixx quit the band London and began rehearsing with drummer Tommy Lee and vocalist/guitarist Greg Leon. Lee had worked before with Greg Leon in Hollywood glam metal act Suite. The three jammed together for some time with Leon ultimately deciding to leave the fold. The bassist and drummer then began a search for new members. Sixx and Lee soon met guitarist Bob “Mick Mars” Deal through an ad in “The Recycler”. Mars was immediately auditioned and then hired to join the lineup. The group was still in dire need of a lead vocalist. Tommy Lee had known Vince Neil from back in their high school years. Upon seeing him perform with the group Rock Candy at the Starwood in Hollywood, Mars suggested Mötley Crüe hire Vince.

The act’s debut single was “Stick to Your Guns/Toast of the Town,” which they put out on their own label, Leathür Records, which had a pressing & distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torrance, CA. It is also known that the single was distributed at concerts they performed at.

During November 1981, their debut album Too Fast for Love was self-produced and released on Leathür, selling 20,000 copies. This soon led to interest from Electra records.

It’s a rare glimpse nearly three decades back in time at the Crue rocking it out in their blazing Hollywood club days. Strap yourselves in for some heavy metal history!

Listen to the extremely rare recording below!

Mick Mars of M?tley Cr?e

August 23rd, 2005

Mick Mars of M?tley Cr?e
Interviewed in Jan. 1999 by David Lee

MOTLEY CRUE is set to raise its middle digit to the world once more.  This time the vehicle is called “Greatest Hits” and the wheels have already begun to burn a bit of rubber across a very limp and lifeless music industry. Elektra records has been cast aside in favor of the Motleys own label and distribution network. An international tour of theaters and arenas to support the release is currently being planned and Tommy is, finally, out of jail! Things, as they say, are about to happen.

The group that set the standard for outrage and excellence is also using the American portion of their tour to fish for talent by allowing a local group to open the show in each market played. Standard practice for acts of lesser popularity but, virtually, unheard of for groups of MOTLEY CRUE’s stature. The “Kick Start Your Career” contest is an act of genuine class that the group feels it owes the next generation of rockers. A Motley Records(TM) compilation CD is scheduled to follow the tour and will, likely, launch several of these current unknowns onto the national stage.

One thing that you can set your watch by is the fact that their will be controversy of some kind attached to all these goings on. The last tour kept both the PMRC and local law enforcement officials busier than the Arkansas State Troopers under, then Governor, Clinton. Almost as predictable is the fact that Mick Mars will, probably, sit back and watch it all, preferring to let his six string wreak his share of the havoc.  Mars has established a following as a guitar hero that he, scarcely, seems to recognize. He is soft spoken and humble preferring to leave the term “legend” for his own heros, (OZZY and KISS), rather than for himself. In a phone interview Mick told me of both the immediate and some future plans for the band as well as the ongoing legal dispute with John Corabi. I don’t think that I can fully express my excitement over having the opportunity to interview such an important artist from my rock and roll adolescence. I did manage to keep from fawning for most of the interview so as to get as many pertinent facts as possible. In any case, here in his own words, is MOTLEY CRUE’s Mick Mars.

Swedenrock Festival June 9-11, 2005 S?lvesborg Sweden

July 27th, 2005


Reviews and Pics by Arto Lehtinen

& Marko "hairock" Syrjala

Once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.Com squad made it’s annual visit to the prestigious Swedenrock Festival. The festival is located in the countryside of southern Sweden. Again we witnessed a number of amazing and unforgettable metal and hard rock names on the stage. As expected, all tickets for Swedenrock were sold quicker than expected due especially to the booking of the legendary LA  80’s metal outfit Motley Crue. If some wild estimate of sold tickets could be said, it would be apx. 22,000 people that arrived at the festival each day. It is interesting how the organization of the Swedenrock Festival will carry on and expand and develop the festival in the future.
