    Well, if there's a Stripper or ex-Stripper in the audience, they already know the words to a their most popular songs......

    The was a time 30 years ago when I actually would have been proud of that fact! lol!

    I imagine this is true. He's been successful for a very long time. Celebrity Net Worth has him at $50 million. I don't know/care how accurate that is, but it's safe to say he's not broke and never will be.

    I think you are spot on. His entire identity for nearly 40 years has been the rock singer in the premiere bad boy band. Men who retire from menial office jobs often feel useless with nothing to do, so I can't imagine how difficult it is to go from touring the world, having an entire staff kiss your ass, getting VIP treatment everywhere you go, groupies clamoring to "meet" you, to suddenly sitting at home alone in your mansion. You and I would love the mansion, but we don't know flying all over the world to meet screaming fans.

    No matter what you achieved in your past life, I imagine there's nothing satisfying about sitting around the house looking at platinum albums on the walls and thinking, "I used to be awesome!"

    You misspelled working girls. Motley Cruller never attracted many woman to their gigs.


    I think you miswrote that - I think he says
    'I Used to Care!'

    I'll tell you what - if I had a huge career and a
    giant bank account - I'd hire a personal nutrionist,
    personal trainer, and vocal coach if I got into as bad
    shape as Cruller is. I'd get peoples respect back.

    But he won't, and he won't.

    Whaaaaaat? You're kidding, right????? That band had armies of groupies following them around. I remember going to their shows and nearly drooling on myself at all the scantily-clad eye candy everywhere. No band (except maybe Van Halen) packed in more groupies per arena than Motley Crue in their day.

    I suppose they aren't your bag, so you won't read The Dirt, but it's an eye opening book.

    Exactly. Great points.

    Also wanted to mention this.. Not sure if you seen the Crues final show but from my perspective Vince was the only one in the band who genuinely seemed upset that it was the actual end of Motley and it was really over.

    IMO Tommy quit caring about Motley when he got interested in hip hop and electronic music back in the 90's. Micks health to me wasn't in a place to keep with the machine of Motleys touring schedule. Nikki I think was tired of Tommy not being into it, Micks declining health and Vince's addictions/demons starting to affect his performance in a major way. Nikki knew it wasn't going to improve and was best to end it now than staying too late at the party.

    People can hate on Vince all they want. He's an easy target now. It won't change the fact he was one of the best frontmen to come out of the 80's and Motley would not of been Motley without him. He was made for that band and time and was fantastic live for many many years.

    Maybe that is true, but I would not be surprised if that is not one
    of those click bait things.

    Vince signed away his stake in Motley in the 90's and has just been
    a hired gun for them since.

    It doesnt seem a guy worth 50 mil would do 200 person club dates.

    But I guess stranger things have happened.

    That band had armies of Prostitutes following them around.
    I don't care what they painted their lives like in the book -
    there is a huge disconnect between their dream life and
    what it cost to provide it.

    Could be worse, could be middle aged Stryper in the audience.

    MAS is a serious, underfunded syndrome.

    I saw Stryper last year. Bumblebee suits and all. They were excellent! That singer can still throw down.

    I saw Motley here in Norway on the Girls Girls Girls tour. Never seen so many women at a hard rock show neither before or since.

    Vince may be worth a little north of 50M. He owns the biggest house in Nashville apparently.

    I saw them in Seattle (Tacoma Dome) in 1987. The crowd was half female, and a good percentage of them were half naked. I'm still walking a little bit crooked from that night.

    I’ve seen them 9 times and I can pretty much confirm what you’re saying

    Sounds like I should have gone to see Motely Crue even though I don't like their music.

    "Heda one ... call ... 'eelgood

    Heda one ... call ... 'eelgood"

    Also, this one is shot so it looks like the 2nd guitar player is a uniformed cop who is not all that excited about the Beaumont Cherry Festival.

    Around 3 seconds in, Vince even gives him a look at says "Keep up with me Flash".
