The band your mother warned you about, Motley Crue, are celebrating their 40th birthday in typical Crue fashion with a year-long party.
On January 17, 1981, the music world changed forever when Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee first jammed together with then vocalist/guitarist Greg Leon.
After Leon departed Mick Mars and Vince Neil were recruited and the rest is musical history…
40 years to the day this January 17, Motley Crue plan to revive two decades of memories with 12 months of festivities but first, the band are inviting fans to sign their birthday card before that date on Facebook before tuning in to the site on their birthday for more announcements.
Motley Crue’s debut album Too Fast For Love also celebrates 40 years of rock debauchery on November 10.
Any posts about the band are invited to add the hashtag #HappyBirthdayToCrüe
