Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)

Motley Crue

I discovered Motley Crue in 1983, The Story of Rock and Roll details that experience and the disappointment I felt when I finally put an imported copy of Shout At The Devil onto my turn table for the first time.  The band were totally overhyped but their contribution to the whole Hair Metal L.A. scene is immeasurable.

This is one of my all time favourite video’s, the bit where the kid realises who he has just skated past is classic. Vince’s entrance into the studio and the whole hanging out in L.A. thing is just so fucking cool. Motley Crue personified the whole L.A. scene at the time and although the only album I find really impressive is Dr Feelgood it is so good that I will forgive them everything else.
