About Motley Crue:
Motley Crue recently returned to the top of the charts with Saints of Los Angeles, their first new studio album with the original line-up — Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil — in a decade and the ninth studio album in their career. Based on the band’s New York Times bestseller The Dirt, the disc debuted at #1 on the Independent Album chart and was the top debut of the week on the Billboard Top 200 albums at #4. “Saints of Los Angeles,” which was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, was also noted as the #1 Rock Song of the Year in 2008 by iTunes critics. Crue Fest, last summer’s most successful touring rock festival and the number ten tour overall (according to Rolling Stone), played for nearly half a million rock fans throughout North America. Crue Fest 1 featured Motley Crue along with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Sixx:A.M. and Trapt.

Joe Perry’s fourth solo album, 2005’s Joe Perry, not only received universal praise from journalists across the country, it earned him his first solo Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Song (“Mercy”). Joe Perry’s fifth sold album entitled, Have Guitar Will Travel, follows self-produced solo releases including Let The Music Do The Talking (1980), Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker (1984) and I’ve Got The Rock ‘N’ Rolls Again (1981).
