In a brand new interview with Yahoo! Music, TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider addressed the fact that some fans in the 1980s were discouraged by the fact that he was a rock star that liked to rock but didn't party, so they turned their attention to bands like MÖTLEY CRÜE.
"[MÖTLEY CRÜE] singer Vince Neil could go and literally kill someone in a car accident," Snider said. "There were two other women who were in a van who were permanently crippled from that famous car accident that killed Razzle from HANOI ROCKS. And people are cool with that. They're like, 'Yeah, all right! Rock 'n' roll!!' And the guy didn't do any serious jail time. I'm, like, 'Really? Really? He's a murderer.' I don't get that at all."
Neil's drunk-driving death car crash happened back in December 1984 when he smashed his car into another vehicle in Redondo Beach, California, killing HANOI ROCKS drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley and seriously injuring two other occupants.Neil was charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol. His blood alcohol level was 0.17, which was over the legal limit.
Neil served half of a 30 day jail sentence, received five years probation and had to pay $2.6 million in restitution, as well as perform 200 hours of community service.

There was no group hug at the end of Motley Crue‘s last show. In fact, Tommy Lee says he hasn’t spoken to Vince Neil or Nikki Sixx since they left the stage on Dec. 31 after their last-ever performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
After the final night, we had a big party backstage on New Year’s Eve, and I never saw the other guys,” Lee told Rolling Stone. “We never even said goodbye. F—ing strange as hell, dude. I mean, what the f—?”
It got weirder, he said. “I think f—ing Nikki unfollowed me on f–ing Twitter, like, the next day,” Lee added, though he’s not sure why there was such a disconnect at the end. “I really don’t know. I mean, if you’re getting divorced, you still give your ex a hug or flip her off or something. You either get a kiss or a slap or … something.” (Note: according to Metal Injection, Sixx actually hasn’t been following Lee on Twitter for at least a year.)
UPDATE: Sixx has responded to Lee’s account of the band’s final after-party via Twitter, explaining that he didn’t stay for the party because he doesn’t drink and needed to take care of his children.

The may be retired but that is not the case for their line of merchandise that still goes strong with the release of a line of signature vibrators. In September Lovehoney will put on the market a line of eight Motley Crue vibrators available in two sizes, medium and small, decorated with typography (seen below) from albums like Girls, Girls, Girls and Shout at the Devil with the pentagram behind the band’s logo. One boasts the black and white “Dr. Feelgod” scrawl while both sizes are represented with a skull with an arched ‘Motley” at the top and a curved ‘Crue’ at the bottom.
“The eight eye-catching vibes capture the style and sex appeal of the band perfectly and deliver the power and pleasure you’d expect from ‘The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’,” Lovehoney sales manager Sabrina Earnshaw stated. “The toys are targeted predominantly at rock fans, but even those unfamiliar with the band are bound to enjoy them just as much thanks to the high quality, intense power and gorgeous designs.
