I was asked (in a comment) about the Larry King interview with Motely Crue last night. Here are my thoughts:
I was very impressed with all of them, they were classy. The raunchiness has been replaced by a level of maturity but they haven't lost any of their coolness or uniqueness. Still hard core rockers.
Larry tried to get Tommy to talk about his get-back with Pamela Anderson and he very diplomatically said that the focus of the interview was on Motley, not his personal life.
When asked a question about who held the record for having sex with the most women in one night they discreetly refused to answer and gave the impression that that was over 20 years ago and they are not those same guys today so they refuse to discuss it. I liked that.
When asked if he still wanted to beat up Axl Rose, Vince said "would you still want to beat up a kid that pulled your hair in 3rd grade? I haven't even seen him in 20 years."
Mick, as usual didn't have much to say but did add to the conversation a bit :)
They gave each other credit for everything, no one stood out as "the star" fo the group. I don't think Larry realized that Nikki is the brains behind the band (at least that's how I've always seen it) and that without him the band probably would not have been started.
They shared a few cute stories, one about how Vince used to sleep at Tommy's house in high school, one about Nikki's first tattoo, and one about how Nikki and Mick met at a liquor store when Nikki was working there and Mick went in to buy something.
They took Larry to the studio and let him try out the drums and guitar. I thought the poor old guy was gonna have a heart attack. He had his ear plugs in but was still looking a bit overwhelmed by the noise.
All in all it was very entertaining.
