Today…March 8th, 2013, 80′s hair metal pioneers and some of my favorite freakin’ people in the whole entire world, Motley Crue…have announced their plans to disband.

Please, try to control your emotions.

It was speculated a while back that Crue was approaching the end of their days, when bassist Nikki Sixx said things like:

“It’s not that we hate each other or we don’t work together well. I think it’s just at some point we want to leave it with some sort of a legacy that’s leaving it in a good way. I just see some bands that keep f—ing beating a dead horse and I’m like, ‘Get off the horse, dude, it’s dead.’”

Now, Sixx has officially confirmed that after finishing their new album, a movie adaptation to to their autobiography, “The Dirt,” along with the soundtrack and a farewell tour, that the members of Motley Crue will be going their separate ways after over 30 years together.  What is the reason for this soul-crushing announcement? Sixx explains:

“It’s important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse’s head, and it goes down, it’s not a plastic bullet it’s a f—ing shotgun blast. You know, blow its f—ing brains out, it’s never coming back. It has to [be that way]. It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, it’s it. I will cry. I cry thinking about it. I’ve been in this band longer than I’ve known any woman, longer than I’ve known my children – only my family, and I have a closer relationship with my band than I have with my family, and a rockier relationship with my band than I’ve had with anybody in my family, as well.  I’ll leave you with this: when you go and see a great f—ing movie and it ends and you go, ‘F—!’ like, you walk out and you go, ‘That was amazing! That blew my mind!’ It’s not like, ‘That blew my mind and, um, maybe there’ll be a sequel to it.’”

Alright, fine, I guess I can understand that.  That doesn’t change the absolute devastation that just put a HUGE damper on my Friday.  I guess I’ll just have to look forward to the new Crue album, movie, and tour until the end.

In the meantime…

    Motley Crue rocks but to write that they are “some of my favorite freakin’ people in the whole entire world” is a little disturbing. Vince Neil has committed vehicular homicide; Tommy Lee had a Swastika tattoo on his arm and once kicked Pamela Anderson who was holding their child; and Nikki Sixx was such a heroin addict that he didn’t even hit rock bottom when he OD and died for two minutes. Crue are legendary rockers but not legendary human beings.

    Oh my god, can people stop talking about their personal lives and not their legacy??? All people say anymore is vince killed razzle, nikki was on heroin, tommy kicked pam. Yes drugs and alcohol get the worse of people, tommy didnt kick pam, vince killed razzle, i love hanoi rocks, and im not standing up for drinking and driving, but cmon give them a little sort of break, fuck!!! they have great music, and changed my life, crueheads are best, fuck the rest

    really don’t think it’s over give it 5 years break and i would be willing to bet they will be back…i think they have been touring with Kiss and this is what they did…oh we are retiring kiss said ..bullshit….i bet it’s the same the thing

    Here’s to hoping that it ends up like the Scorpions and they had so much fun on their “final” tour that they decide to stick around a bit longer.
