This weekend marks the 40th Anniversary of the legendary Mötley Crüe.
On 17 January 1981, Nikki Sixx first jammed with Tommy Lee and vocalist/guitarist Greg Leon. Leon left, Mick Mars and Vince Neil were recruited and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fans are being asked to sign the birthday card on the bands Facebook page, using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayToCrüe. More announcements will be made there on Sunday.
Nikki Sixx said: “In ‘Kickstart My Heart’ the lyrics say:
“When we started this band / All we needed, needed was a laugh / Years gone by, I’d say we’ve kicked some ass.”
“It ass always been about great songs and over-the-top live shows for us. The fans were always right by our side. I do not know where all of the years went. It went by in a flash.
“What I cannot forget, are the four decades of fans who have counted themselves as CRÜEHEADS from day one, supporting us through thick and thin. To them we are in debt and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
“Happy 40th Birthday to us all.”
Don’t forget the bands hit movie ‘The Dirt’ is on Netflix.
