Dodge Rocks Gas MonkeySeptember 22, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Dodge, Gas Monkey Garage owner Richard Rawlings and Mötley Crüe are inviting all Charger, Challenger and Viper owners to the ultimate party and owners’ experience, the “Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey” car show and concert. The Nov. 1 event at Gas Monkey Live, a new state-of-the-art second Gas Monkey music venue in Dallas, culminates in an exclusive performance by the iconic rock band Mötley Crüe, mid-way through their All Bad Things Must End “Final Tour” of large arenas across North America.

Owners of any classic or newer model Dodge Charger, Challenger and Viper are invited to register at www.dodgerocksgasmonkey.com to show off their vehicles at this one-and-only car show and concert. The event is free, as the $100 vehicle deposit due at registration will be refunded on site. The car show package includes up to two general admission passes to the event and concert at what most likely is the most intimate venue Mötley Crüe has played in decades.

“Motley Crue, Richard Rawlings, Gas Monkey Live and Dodge muscle cars are all awesome by themselves,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands and Head of Fleet Operations, Chrysler Group LLC. “Put all four together with a full day celebration of Dodge’s 100th anniversary and you’ve got an event that will not only make the Dodge brothers proud, but also will be something that Dodge enthusiasts talk about for years. ‘Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey’ is a not-to-miss opportunity to help kick start Dodge’s next 100 years.”

At the car show, Dodge will show the new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – the fastest, most powerful sedan in the world, with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.0 seconds – and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the fastest and most powerful muscle car ever. Both have a 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine. Additional Dodge and SRT vehicles, such as the 2015 Challenger Scat Pack, Charger R/T, Dart GT, Durango R/T and Viper GTS, also will be on display.

About Richard Rawlings
Richard Rawlings is the star of The Discovery Channel’s international hit series “Fast N’ Loud.” In each episode, motor mastermind Rawlings searches the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at his Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas. Working day and night, he turns the cars into a bad ass ride and takes them to auction.

Aside from his garage and television show, Rawlings is a savvy business man, turning the Gas Monkey Garage into a full-fledged brand, branching out into merchandise and becoming a social media maverick, boasting more than 2 million Facebook likes, 3.4 million YouTube views and 275,000-plus Twitter followers. He also is a restaurateur and owns the wildly successful Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill, which opened a second location in spring 2014. This new venture, Gas Monkey Live, is a state-of-the art music venue across the street from Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill.

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. Anticipation is at an all-time high for this final run of dates – with many of the stops already sold out.

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

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.”

Jeff Tremaine talks “The Dirt” Movie with Loudwire

“‘The Dirt’ is separate from all the other rock books that I’ve ever read that’s just thinking they really nailed each guy’s voice.
