KISS, Mötley Crüe Members Talks `The Tour` In Separate Video Interviews
CNN, Rockerrazzi.com, 95.5
KLOS and Noisecreep conducted
separate interviews with members of Mötley Crüe and KISS about
their upcoming co-headlining tour - dubbed simply "The
will kick off on July 20 in Bristow, Virginia. You can watch the
Crüe singer Vince
Neil: "These guys are the baddest band in the fucking world. Our
very first tour was with [KISS], 1982. To be able to do it now is
KISS frontman Paul
Stanley: "Seeing [Mötley Crüe] on stage [in 1982], it was
obvious back then that this was the next big thing. We talk about
bang for buck, this will be the definition of bang for buck on this
tour. If you want to see more bombs and artillery, you'll have to
check out the military."
KISS bassist/vocalist Gene
Simmons: "We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with
dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No fake bullshit. Leave
that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and
anyone who ends their name with an 'A.'"
Crüe drummer Tommy
Lee (to Billboard.com):
"No disrespect to Rihanna, she's a great singer, but we're in a
slump for some shit that has some personality and appeal beyond a
bunch of pop stuff that's floating around out there. I'm glad he said
that actually because I don't think i can bear watching another
fucking award show that is just a little bit better than 'American
Idol'. It's fucking pathetic to watch people go out and fucking
karaoke with a bunch of lights and video. It's all completely watered
Crüe bassist Nikki
Sixx (to RollingStone.com):
"What I would like to see people take away from it is that if
you actually practice your instrument and practice writing songs and
put a hundred percent into your show and every aspect of it, from
your clothes to your lyrics, if your singers sing, then this is what
happens — you have a long career and you get to go out and do the
real deal. It’s real rock and roll."
KISS drummer Eric
Singer: "Both bands are fans of each other. Everyone in KISS is
a fan of Mötley, big time. I remember when 'Dr.
out, Paul used
to play that record all the time."
Stanley: "You may say it doesn't look like classic rock and roll
in the sense of what Elvis did,
but all we've ever been, both bands, is Elvis on
steroids. Elvis through
a Marshall amplifier.
We never forget, we were once in the audience seeing bands who let us
down. This will be The Tour, that's what we're calling it, The
Tour. You will be deaf and blinded, you will leave there stumbling
