This Week In Rock History!

Tenth Street
Tenth Street

Earlier this week 35 years ago, Motley Crue released their first single the title track off their first album “Too Fast For Love”, Livewire!. If this video is any evidence of the decadence that came afterwards well I saw it coming!

This album is definitely one of my all time favorites from the boys. They actually put their money together and started their own record label “Leathur Records” before being signed to Elektra and then starting Motley Records.

In 1981, the boys well looked a bit more like women than men. That was the sign of the times glam had started when punk rock ruled the streets of Los Angeles. Not to be out done they started booking shows at the Whiskey A Go-Go, The Troubadour, The Roxy just to name a few. This would have been the best time to hang with the Crue as they lived right off Sunset and Clarke, literally right behind the Whiskey A Go-Go.

35 years later and this album still hits hard, below is the first and only video from, “Too Fast For Love” I give you “Livewire”! Enjoy!
