This could be the end
RIP Motley Crue: All Bad Things Must Come To An End. That’s what’s written on a graveyard cross in an ad that asks you to save the date January 28th. Various members of the band have been talking about a farewell tour, but it’s unclear if that’s what this date is supposed to announce. Not too long ago bassist Nikki Sixx told the press that he sees some bands beating a dead horse and he’s like ‘Get off the horse dude, it’s dead’ in reference to the band. Drummer Tommy Lee echoed those sentiments and said that the band wants to get one last tour in and call it quits because of guitarist Mick Marrs’ health, something Mars denies. Singer Vince Neil told Billboard.com that the band may start touring sometime this spring and “we’ll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits. It’s just that time. We’re out on top.” Surely the save the date ad is meant for a press conference where the band will announce their tour and answer various questions from the media. We’ll keep you posted.
More details are coming out about the next Foo Fighters album. The band released a a pic of some master tapes and with it a statement proclaiming “It’s F**king On”! The band has been quiet the last few months after a banner year. Now fans have an Instagram post to drool over. That was delivered late last week. Now forensic analysis of the master tapes photo shows the band working on “LP 8” with several different reels plus a couple of “master tones” tapes. What that means, we have no idea. We’re simply music critics, not sound engineers. One thing is clear, though, it appears the band is again going analog instead of purely digital. Their last album Wasting Light was recorded analog with special editions released including actual snippets of the master tapes. There’s still no word on when the album will be released.
