I am getting a #MusicMonday post up in time this week!
Actually, does snow count? Because over the past week, we were under about THREE WHOLE INCHES of snow (but there was ice underneath that), causing me to miss a few days' work and therefore, not stay caught up on anything I needed to get done outside of the house. Which is kind of why this is late-ish (only it's not truly late because it is still Monday).
So Spank contacted me a few weeks ago about Motley Crue's Farewell Tour (for this decade) coming up this summer. Seriously, I thought they'd already done that back in the late nineties, but I guess I was wrong.
This was my absolute favorite band of my teenage years. I always made it a point to go see them whenever they were in town, I had all their albums, and had my walls plastered with their posters. Until recently, I had all my tour shirts from eighties (but that's another story for another post). I'm sure you get the picture. I used to be a pretty huge fan. My "fanship" of the band may have wavered over the years, but it wouldn't be right for me to not see them on their farewell tour. So I will be going. I believe the date is in August.
The song I'm sharing today is one of my all-time favorites by them. It wasn't one of their hits or singles and it's not off my favorite album, but I really loved this song because to me it seemed more bluesy and stripped-down than their others had been. I played this repeatedly throughout the entire summer of 1985:
Motley Crue: "Raise Your Hands to Rock"
Will you be seeing Motley Crue on their farewell tour this summer? Who WILL you be seeing this summer?
