    I predate any '80s class and was hanging out in Hollywood when Nikki Sixx played in the house band at the Starwood. To this day I have no idea how Motley Crue made it over any number of better bands around at the time. More power to them for longevity and they had a couple of decent songs. But damn. Wonder if there will be any actual footage or if it is all staged. May be shots of me when I was young and good looking.

    Never been a huge Crüe fan, but loved the book.

    How they lived through it, I have no clue.

    You had to have Cragars on your Chevelle. Class of 85 here. Would have killed for a 69 Chevelle, which could be had pretty cheap then. I had a 76 Datsun 710.

    Yes, writing a book can be perilous.

    8-ball says the film is gonna suck.

    Sorry for the silly question:

    Do you mean the year you finished High School when using this expression?

    Lots of other bands from that era I'd be more interested in. Nothing against the Crue but I think they've been well documented through the years. I doubt I'll hear too much that's new or shocking.

    Yes. Graduation year.

    I get a little sad remembering the cars my friends & I drove back then, when I see what it costs to get one now. I had a 1970 Barracuda. Had friends with a 69 Camaro, 1965 Mustang, 1969 Mustang, 1967 Cougar, several 1967 Mustangs, on & on.

    seems weird to pick motley crue as they're not really known for GUITAR so much as, well, everything else.

    I liked Shout at the Devil when it came out.

    yeah this 'hair metal' stuff is mostly limited to the USA

    there was a lot of great guitar music in the 80s …… it just wasn't hair metal

    Oh great, we get see more of Machine Gun Kelly's Oscar-worthy acting. His three line performance in Turd Box made me wish Netflix subscriptions came with free cyanide pills.

    Having read the book... unless Netflix is up for X ratings this will be watered down quite a bit.

    I was never a KISS nor MC fan, but I'm class of '84 and '80s metal was a big part of my musical intake during that era and I'm looking forward to checking the film out.

    MTV was still relevant through the latter half of the 80s (they still played music videos!) and that drove many bands' ticket sales, tapes, and CDs. Focus on 'The Show'.

    MTV did drive the genre more into Ridiculous Hair than Metal by the end, paving the way for the shift to Grunge.

    Pretty sure this is an adaptation of a book, The Dirt, which is about the band.
