The heavy metal band Motley Crue was formed in Los Angeles, in 1981. The final lineup includes Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee. The band is inducted into Hollywood Walk of Fame. It holds several awards, including American Music Awards. Motley Crue is mostly famous for such songs as “Dr. Feelgood”, “Without You”, “Kickstart My Heart”, and “Smokin’ In the Boys Room”.
In 1982, Motley Crue signed a deal with Elektra Records and rereleased their demo album Too Fast for Love. The next year they released another album Shout At The Devil. Both albums were eventually certified platinum in the USA. The next album Theater of Pain (1985) sold over 2 million copies in the USA only. The next LP Girls, Girls, Girls,(1987) reached the 2nd spot on Billboard 200. It was the first heavy metal album to reach such high spot on this chart.
The band went through some lineup changes and released a hit album Dr. Feelgood (1989). It became the band’s most successful LP. The album topped Billboard 200 and was certified platinum 6 times in the USA and 3 times in Canada. The singles from that album “Dr. Feelgood” and “Without You” became big international hits.
In 1992, Vince Neil suddenly left the band and created his own project Vince Neil Band. He was replaced by John Corabi. The band terminated the deal with their label and went on an unsuccessful North American tour. Neil came back to Motley Crue in 1996. At about the same time Tommy Lee received bad publicity because of his scandalous marriage to Pamela Anderson. Eventually, he left the band in 1999 and came back in 2005.
