Man, what a blast from the past.
I remember rocking to “The Crue” back in High School, and one of the best stories I tell is the “Can I burrow a $1” that lead to Glenn and I seeing Motley Crue and Skid Row in Wurzburg Germany on the Dr. Feelgood Tour.
These guys and I go way back.
So it’s great to hear that Jack Daniels (see, I don’t just complain about them) has donated a barrel of bourbon to help support Vince Neil’s charity – The Skylar Neil Foundation.
I only wish the reporter would have put more info on the charity vs focusing on the alcohol. Don’t get me wrong, I love booze….but if something is promoting a cause, throw more information in there….such as -
The Skylar Neil Foundation was founded by singer and musician Vince Neil, in honor of his daughter Skylar, who passed away after a long battle with cancer in 1995.
The Skylar Neil Foundation's mission is to honor Skylar by raising money and awareness through unique charitable events and activities it sponsors, and, grant and award the money raised to medical, research, and educational institutions/groups/individuals who are doing breakthrough work to find cures for cancer, AIDS, and other diseases.
Was that really so hard?
Anyway….great job Motley Crue and Jack Daniels….and as an added bonus, check out the S&B related clip after the article.
Motley Crue have scored a major whiskey deal to help them raise funds for frontman Vince Neil's Skylar Neil Foundation.
Bosses at Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey have donated a special barrel of their bourbon to the band to honour the 2011 Elmer Valentine Award they'll receive at the upcoming Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles.
The barrel will make 290 commemorative bottles, which will be available at the festival later this month (18Aug11) in return for a recommended $100 (£62.50) donation to the charity.
Each bottle will come with a medallion with the engraving, 'Specially Selected for Motley Crue'.
The rockers will headline this year's (11) three-day festival, which will also feature Uriah Heap, Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors and reunited rockers Bush.
