Classless Act bassist Franco Gravante was presented with a new pair of biker boots by Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars after glue failure, due to the heat in St. Louis, rendered his existing pair requiring extensive gaffer tape repair.
“We were on stage at Busch Stadium, in our fourth song,” Gravante said, “and I was wondering why my feet were so damn hot. I mean, everything was hot, but my feet, they were like, burning up. I looked down, and the glue on my boots had totally melted, so I just taped them together and figured they’d get me through the rest of the tour.”
Classless Act, who recently released their debut album Welcome To The Show, are currently kicking off the Mötley Crüe/Def Leppard summer co-headline Stadium Tour dates across North America.
Vince Neil, who sings on the album’s song Classless Act, saw Gravante’s Instagram post and galvanised his bandmates into action.
