Bonus Trivia

.

Upon seeing Vince Neil perform with Rockandi, Mick Mars informed the other members that they needed him for their frontman for his ability to work a crowd.

.

The decision to add umlauts to the "o" and "u" in Motley Crue were reportedly added by Sixx, who was inspired by Lowenbrau's moniker.

.

During their first tour of Canada in 1982, the band generated press attention through a series of publicity stunts, from calling in a false bomb threat against themselves to carrying a case filled with pornographic material through Customs.

.

Sixx was reportedly dead for two minutes following his overdose in 1987, and revived by shots of adrenaline. The incident served as the inspiration for the song "Kickstart My Heart."

.

Randy Castillo was hired to replace Lee after his departure from the band in 1999. However, he became seriously ill shortly before the band was slated to tour behind their new album, New Tattoo (2000). Hole drummer Samantha Moloney was called in to finish the dates, and Castillo died of cancer in 2002.

.

Mars was diagnosed with a rare form of arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis, which left him unable to move without severe pain. Eventually, his lower spine developed scoliotis, and according to The Dirt, reduced his height by a full three inches.
