PRESS RELEASE: THE DIRT, THE CLASSIC MEMOIR BY MÖTLEY CRÜE AND NEIL STRAUSS, AVAILABLE AS AN E-BOOK FOR FIRST TIME

The DirtDey Street, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, will publish the classic rock memoir The Dirt, by the members of Mötley Crüe and bestselling co-author Neil Strauss, in e-book format for the first time today, July 1, 2014. The e-book is available here: Get “The Dirt” e-book. First published in 2001, The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band is one of the most outrageous rock and roll books of all time—a nonstop parade of sex, drugs, and rock and roll by one of the most iconic rock bands in history. Today, the book has nearly 750,000 copies in print—confirming Q magazine’s verdict that the book was “the most unputdownable rock book of the year, or, possibly, any year.”

In January 2014, Mötley Crüe announced a history-making Final tour through the summer. This tell-all autobiography—“an unabashed, unrepentant look at the way rock ‘n’ roll used to be lived” (Maxim)—explores the rebellious career and fractious partnership of four of the most influential icons of rock history: Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. Together, as Mötley Crüe, they became the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, pioneers of Hollywood glam, and the creators of MTV’s first “power ballad.” Their sex lives claimed celebrities from Heather Locklear to Pamela Anderson to Donna D’Errico. Their scuffles involved everyone from Axl Rose to 2LiveCrew. Their hobbies have included collecting automatic weapons, cultivating long arrest records, pushing the envelope of conceivable drug abuse, and dreaming up backstage antics that would make Ozzy Osbourne blanch with modesty. As the New York Times summarized, “open it anywhere and find a story to remember.” Provocatively written and brilliantly designed, and hailed as “the wildest rock ‘n’ roll story ever told” (San Antonio Express-News), this book includes more than 80 photos for the most exciting and insightful look ever into the Crüe.

The film version of The Dirt is set to debut in theaters globally in 2015, coinciding with the band’s Final Tour. Jeff Tremaine (Bad Grandpa), has signed on to direct the opus. Tremaine’s intention is to make, not just a great movie about a band, but a great movie about four misfits who, despite themselves and everyone else, band together to overcome the odds and change the history of Rock & Roll. “The Dirt’ is a movie I’ve wanted to make ever since I read the book in 2002,” says Tremaine. “I relate to the story on so many levels; my whole professional career has been about boys behaving badly, so I have a real connection to the material. It’s awesome to be working with the band at such an exciting time in Motley Crue’s history.” The film will be produced by the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE, Rick Yorn, Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen and 10th Street Entertainment.

“Without a doubt, [The Dirt] is the most detailed account of the awesome pleasures and perils of rock & roll stardom I have ever read. It is completely compelling, and utterly revolting.”
—Joe Levy, Rolling Stone

“The Dirt is the singularly greatest sex/drugs/rock reading experience of our age. It’s one of the all-time great rock bios . . . a good dirty rocking read.”
—Charles Bock, NPR

“[A] masterpiece . . . a wind-in-the-face joyride . . . one of the best rock biographies ever written.”
—LitReactor

The first leg of Motley Crue’s FINAL TOUR kicks off on Wednesday, July 2nd in Grand Rapids, MI and will run throughout the US for 72 dates this summer.

Fast Company: 5 Brilliant Business Lessons from Motley Crue

“Looking to Mötley Crüe for advice about business might sound a little like asking Warren Buffett for tips on headbanging. Are there really lessons to be learned from the band who, in their 1980s heyday, were as well known for their over-the-top debauchery as for their music? “Looking from the outside,” says bassist and co-founder Nikki Sixx, “I totally understand why people would think there’s no way this band should even still be here.”

Not only is Mötley Crüe still around, they have continued to thrive even as the music industry has contracted around them and other metal bands they came up with have either become nostalgia acts or simply disappeared. Since their founding in 1981, the band–singer Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, drummer Tommy Lee, and Sixx–has sold more than 75 million records, cranking out hits like “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Kickstart My Heart,” and “Home Sweet Home” despite weathering drug and alcohol addiction, internal strife, arrests, and imprisonment. As the group prepares to wrap up its legendary career with a final worldwide tour before disbanding for good, Sixx and the band’s longtime manager, Allen Kovac, spoke to Fast Company about the business smarts that have kept Crüe cruising for more than 30 years.” – Fast Company

PRESS RELEASE: Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue

Details Announced for Highly-Anticipated Country Tribute Album, Featuring Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts & More

Slated for Release July 8 on Big Machine Records, Motley Records and Eleven Seven Music

Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue(May 19, 2014) – Big Machine Records, Mötley Records and Eleven Seven Music announced today that the highly-anticipated Country tribute album NASHVILLE OUTLAWS: A TRIBUTE TO MÖTLEY CRÜE will be released on July 8. The project will feature fresh takes on 15 of the band’s biggest hits covered by some of Country music’s biggest names, including Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, Big & Rich, LeAnn Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts and more.

“We did not make this record for Mötley Crüe fans, but for Country fans who are also Rock fans. I believe that there’s going to be a lot of synergy and excitement for Mötley Crüe fans hearing different artists covering their favorite songs. People will be surprised how these artists made the songs their own and we couldn’t be happier with how the album turned out. It’s been an amazing, positive experience and, as a lot of things we’ve done, a first in our career,” says Mötley Crüe bassist, Nikki Sixx.

“It has been a blast becoming friends with the Motley guys and learning how much they appreciate the history of Country music. They are truly one of the most disruptive bands of their generation and I am honored to be able to cover one of my favorite Crue songs of all time, ‘Home Sweet Home.’ It has been pretty unreal singing with Vince Neil,” said Justin Moore.

The record is a joint venture between Big Machine Records – home to country superstars such as Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw – and Mötley Records and Eleven Seven Music. Big Machine Label Group President and CEO, Scott Borchetta, is among the legion of Country music fans who love Mötley Crüe. Borchetta says of the collaboration, “I have been a not-so-secret Crüe fan from the beginning. When manager Chris Nilsson called with the idea for a tribute album on Big Machine Records it was an immediate ‘yes’ from me! Our album will highlight just how great the Mötley Crüe song catalog is. At the end of the day, that’s what will stand the test of time.”

Tracklisting:

Rascal Flatts – “Kickstart My Heart”

Florida Georgia Line – “If I Die Tomorrow”

LeAnn Rimes – “Smokin’ In The Boys Room”

Justin Moore – “Home Sweet Home”

MÖTLEY CRÜE announced The Final Tour and the band’s ultimate retirement, solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles on Jan. 28. Celebrating the announcement of The Final Tour, the band performed on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later that night and appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Jan. 29.

With over 80 million albums sold, MÖTLEY CRÜE has sold out countless tours across the globe and spawned more than 2,500 MÖTLEY CRÜE branded items, sold in over 30 countries. MÖTLEY CRÜE has proven they know how to make a lasting impression and this tour will be no different. Fans can expect to hear the catalogue of their chart-topping hits and look forward to mind-blowing, unparalleled live production. “When it comes to putting together a new show, we always push the envelope and that’s part of Mötley Crüe’s legacy,” explains Nikki Sixx (bass). “As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch The Final Tour.”

The Final Tour, presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation, will kick off in North America on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. and reach 73 markets before hitting international territories in 2015. To Live Nation, MÖTLEY CRÜE tours are not only box office successes but artistically have set the bar for production and entertainment value. “There’s no arguing that Mötley Crüe have been and always will be the definitive bad boys of rock ’n’ roll,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s regional president of North America concerts. “But behind all those notorious stories is a legendary rock band that has revolutionized heavy metal and created some of the biggest hits in music history. They are a hugely successful global brand and a touring powerhouse. Everyone at Live Nation has a tremendous amount of respect for these hard-working and extremely talented gentlemen. The music industry will never have another Mötley Crüe.”

The Dodge Brothers were a notorious duo, so it seemed only natural to partner with the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. “Whenever I talk to people about Mötley Crüe, the common thread is how cool and relevant the band remains, even after 33 years,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This irreverent ‘staying power’ resonates deeply with the Dodge brand as we turn the corner on our 100-year anniversary. What better way to celebrate the band’s final tour and the 25th anniversary of Kickstart My Heart than to do it together?”

Fans can look forward to very special guest ALICE COOPER joining MÖTLEY CRÜE for an incredible package; Alice invented the rock ‘n’ roll genre and MÖTLEY CRÜE put steroids in it! “Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days,” said Alice. “Mötley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that’s to blow the audience away. That’s exactly how we do it. Putting Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper together is going to be just what this summer really NEEDS. We’re going to go out there and tear it up, and I can’t wait to see Mötley on stage. Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper—a match made in…Armageddon?”

As documented in the Cessation Of Touring Agreement the band signed at the Jan. 28 press conference, the band will not tour after this final tour. Band attorney Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law explains: “Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement.” Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars will go their separate ways after the lengthy two-year touring cycle. Tommy Lee (drums) explains: “Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big f***king bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members! Our job here is done!!!” Of the band’s tumultuous history, Mick Mars (guitar) adds: “(It has been) more drama than ‘General Hospital;’ it keeps ‘em watchin’ and they keep comin’ back.” Vocalist, Vince Neil says of the Finality of the tour: “I’ll miss playing with the guys, but I won’t quit playing rock ‘n’ roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Mötley.”

Nikki Sixx on the final days of Motley Crue – MusicRadar

“Given the lives enjoyed and endured by Sunset Strip hair metal veterans Mötley Crüe, it was always going to take something unusual to signal the demise of the band. We really didn’t see the Crüe ending their near 35-year career with a formally written contract though.

But that’s exactly what they did at last month’s glitzy LA press conference, where they announced the Final Tour, a run of shows set to stretch from this summer up to the end of 2015. And, just to pre-empt all those questions about reunions, the band signed a cessation of touring agreement that forbids them from ever going back out on tour as Mötley Crüe.

Musicradar spoke to bass player/band leader Nikki Sixx about calling it a day, staying away and regrets…”

Mick Mars talks “The Final Tour” with ARTISTdirect!

“Mötley Crüe will spend the next two years on their Final Tour. They even signed a legally binding contract to prove that they mean business. They are going out on top. Do not expect any half-assed, three-fourths reunion tours in two or three years. We grabbed some time with guitarist Mick Mars to find out the skinny.”
