Motley Crue Look Back at “Dr. Feelgood,” “Home Sweet Home”
By Rolling Stone
When Mötley Crüe completed their Saints of Los Angeles tour and Crüe Fest 2 this summer, they turned their attention to their past, revamping their best-of collection for a fresh Greatest Hits , which hits stores today. On the road, the band paid tribute to one of their milestones — the 20th anniversary of 1989’s Dr. Feelgood — by playing the LP in its entirety. Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx were kind enough to take Rolling Stone through that album track by track earlier this year, and now Tommy Lee and Mick Mars weigh in on what made the record hit so hard.
Check out photos of the band kick-starting Crüe Fest 2.
Having guests like Steven Tyler, Skid Row and Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander in the studio made it a “classic album,” Mars says, and Lee discusses how the band, under pressure, made a pact to get sober and take the LP to the “next level.” “I can’t believe the four of us, in the state we were in, pulled it together like we were going to battle,” he says, recalling how the band left everything behind but motorcycles and equipment and moved to Vancouver to do the record with Bob Rock. “We built tunnels to send the sound out into these big loading bays, and miked that,” Lee recalls. Mars notes the ballad “Without You” features 79 tracks of guitar alone.

As for the epic power ballad “Home Sweet Home,” Mars remembers Lee “was goofing around on piano” when he came up with the song’s memorable lick — and that during recording, he accidentally wrecked his Les Paul and had to finish up with a Kramer Baretta. Lee says the song “really captured what it was like out on the road” and the video still stands up for him. “When MTV played music instead of all those Love things, it was 14 weeks in a row Number One,” Mars recalls. “I knew it was a great song — it could have been better if our record company didn’t mess it up.” Click below to watch the duo break down “Home Sweet Home.”

The True Story Behind Motley Crue's 'Dr. Feelgood'
For a band that has come to serve as shorthand for all that was loud, lewd, and lasvicious about the hair metal era of the late '80s and very early '90s, Mötley Crüe had few bona fide hit singles. Two of them came from their fifth and most successful album, 1989's Dr. Feelgood. According to AllMusic , the album was (perhaps ironically) recorded after the band had taken some time out from their notoriously debaucherous lifestyle to have a break from touring, go to rehab, and channel the energy they'd normally expend on partying, sex, and drugs into simply writing hit songs about partying, sex, and drugs. They certainly had plenty of life experience upon which to draw, and one of the results was the biggest hit of their career, the album's title track, "Dr. Feelgood." The track peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and is one of just two top 10 Mötley singles.
In a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone , bassist and songwriter Nikki Sixx and frontman Vince Neil discussed each track from Dr. Feelgood. Neil expressed his pride in the fact that VH1 had made the song number 15 in a Greatest Hard Rock Songs countdown. Neil claimed he "knew it was a classic from the time I heard that very first 'bomp-bomp-bomp-bomp'" and called it the band's signature song.
Who was Nikki Sixx's Dr. Feelgood?
Sixx shared that the song had originally been "a whole different thing lyrically" but "[i]n the end it was inspired by drug dealers. Is there ever just one? A good drug addict always has more than one dealer." Sixx knew a lot about that, of course. There's no mention of Max Jacobson , a doctor who served as a technically legal drug dealer to everyone from John F. Kennedy to Tennessee Williams and came to be known as Dr. Feelgood well before 1989, but it's likely Sixx didn't know about that bit of drug dealing history.
In 2015, Sixx spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the Crüe's biggest hits as the band prepared for their farewell tour. (Like so many aging rock stars, they didn't actually retire after the farewell tour and have since started touring again.) When it came to "Dr. Feelgood," Sixx credited guitarist Mick Mars' aforementioned "bomp-bomp-bomp-bomp" guitar riff with turning his head and making him say "What was that?" He also shared that it was album producer Bob Rock who told him to take a second pass at the lyrics after hearing the demo version, saying, per Sixx, "Listen, you're a really good lyricist. I think you should take another run at this like [Mott the Hoople's] Ian Hunter would do or [Bruce] Springsteen would do. Tell a story." The advice obviously worked.
MÖTLEY CRÜE: Digital Remaster Of 'Dr. Feelgood' To Be Made Available In September
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the final single released from MÖTLEY CRÜE 's legendary album "Dr. Feelgood" . In celebration — both of that anniversary and the band's year-long recognition of their 40th anniversary in music — they announce the digital remaster of this decadent and unapologetically fun album, to be released worldwide on September 3. Available now for pre-order across digital platforms, the refreshed sonic experience features hits such as "Dr. Feelgood" , "Kickstart My Heart" , "Without You" , "Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)" and "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" .
To date, "Dr. Feelgood" is the band's best-selling album, with sales of over six million copies worldwide, highly regarded by music critics and fans as some of the band's best work ever. The band originally released its fifth studio album, "Dr. Feelgood" , in September 1989 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, along with seven other Top 10-charting positions worldwide. This rerelease will join the already released digital remasters of "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Theatre Of Pain" .
Relive the history of this groundbreaking album via the title track's iconic video below. This song was the band's first Top 10 hit, climbing as high as No. 6 and charting for 16 weeks, the longest of any MÖTLEY CRÜE single to date, and the first single to achieve gold status.
"Dr. Feelgood" track listing:
01. T.N.T. (Terror 'N Tinseltown) 02. Dr. Feelgood 03. Slice of Your Pie 04. Rattlesnake Shake 05. Kickstart My Heart 06. Without You 07. Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.) 08. Sticky Sweet 09. She Goes Down 10. Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) 11. Time for Change
Hits from the album are included on the recently launched Mötley Crüe 101 Spotify playlist, which gives new and existing fans a comprehensive compilation to the band's iconic musical legacy, taking them a celebratory sonic journey for this special anniversary.
MÖTLEY CRÜE 's "The Stadium Tour" with DEF LEPPARD was originally scheduled to take place last summer but ended up being pushed back to 2021, and then to 2022, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
When it happens, "The Stadium Tour" will mark the CRÜE 's first live dates since wrapping its 2014/2015 farewell tour. CRÜE toured with POISON back in 2011 and DEF LEPPARD teamed up with POISON for a string of road dates in 2017 — but the upcoming jaunt marks the first time all four acts have hit the road together for an extended tour.

How Motley Crue Hit a New Peak With ‘Dr. Feelgood’
Motley Crue released their fourth studio LP, Girls, Girls, Girls , in the summer of 1987, adding another multi-platinum hit to their growing list. But as the band's popularity grew, so did its members' propensity for self-destructive behavior – none more so than bassist and main songwriter Nikki Sixx , whose worsening drug problem nearly destroyed the group just as it was hitting its stride.
In late 1987, Sixx was declared dead after a heroin overdose. Initially, he tried to shrug it off, bolting from the hospital after being revived by paramedics; as he later wrote in the memoir inspired by his addiction battle, The Heroin Diaries , "There was a cop asking me questions, so I told him to go fuck himself. I ripped out my tubes and staggered in just my leather pants into the parking lot, where two teenage girls were sitting crying around a candle. They had heard on the radio that I was dead and looked kind of surprised to see me."
The experience ultimately proved to be a turning point, however – not just for Sixx, but for the entire band. Ordered by their management team to clean up their act, Crue members Vince Neil , Tommy Lee and Mick Mars all joined Sixx in drying out. Newly sober, the quartet convened to start work on their fifth album with a level of focus and commitment they'd never really bothered to bring to bear on previous efforts.
"We all took a break from a lot of crazy shit," explained Lee during an interview for the record's 20th anniversary. "Everybody was sort of at their peak – you know, like drugs and alcohol – and we basically moved to Vancouver to embark on this amazing new record with everybody feeling good and focused. It was a really good time."
But the meaning of "good time" had changed in the context of Motley Crue. Where before it may have meant a lot of partying in the studio, the group was under a new regime in Vancouver: producer Bob Rock, whose ruthless commitment to the music put the band under a level of scrutiny it had never experienced.
"For once the studio wasn't a place to party and bring chicks, it was a place to work. And work it was," recalled Sixx in the band bio The Dirt . "Bob whipped us like galley slaves. His line was, 'That just isn't your best.' Nothing was good enough. Mick recorded all the guitar for Shout at the Devil in two weeks, but now Bob Rock would make him spend two weeks doubling a guitar part over and over until it was perfectly synchronized. And even though the process aggravated and frustrated Mick, he had it much easier than Vince, who on some days would only get a single word on tape that Bob liked."
Even while they were pushed to their musical limits, however, the band members understood the need for a change. Sixx explained the do-or-die atmosphere surrounding the record in a separate interview, saying: "We all said, 'Look, we either have to get it together and become the biggest band in the world, or we're going to knock this thing on the head and go out with more fury than anyone has ever hit the music business with.'"
Under pressure to deliver and unable to blowing off steam like they used to, the band members found life under Rock's watch disorienting. "Six months of rigor combined with six months of sobriety tore the life out of us, and we all had to put up with each other's violent and sudden mood swings," Sixx said. "Before we walked into the studio each day, we never knew whether we'd leave that evening feeling like the best band in the world or four angry clowns who couldn't even play their instruments."
They were able to draw some small comfort, however, in the knowledge that they were far from the only rock stars looking to make a life change. " Aerosmith was recording Pump in the studio next to us and meeting with the same counselor we were using," Sixx added. "After work we'd do the kinds of ridiculous things that sober rock stars do together, like drink Perrier or jog around a lake."
Watch Motley Crue's 'Dr. Feelgood' Video
However difficult the sessions might have been, the ends justified the means. Rock's decision to record the group's parts separately helped create a tighter, cleaner sound than they'd previously been able to achieve, and the new songs were among Crue's finest – an evolution fans eagerly embraced after the completed album, titled Dr. Feelgood , arrived in stores on Sept. 1, 1989.
By mid-October, the record had topped the album charts, giving Motley Crue their first No. 1 LP and beginning an incredible streak of success that would grow to include five rock radio hits, four Top 40 singles and millions of copies of Dr. Feelgood sold. The fun all started with the album's title track and first single, which peaked at an impressive No. 6 on the pop charts – a new high for the band.
"I knew it was a classic from the time I heard that very first 'bomp bomp bomp bomp' – that intro just kind of grabs you," Vince Neil later told Rolling Stone . "This song has been popular for 20 years. It was funny because I was watching VH1 and they had the Greatest Hard Rock Songs and 'Feelgood' was 15 or something. I was like, 'Wow, of all time.' Then you have Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith and AC/DC and 'Feelgood.' I was like, 'Wow, that's cool.' It's our signature song in some ways."
The "Feelgood" run continued with the No. 27 "Kickstart My Heart," inspired by Sixx's 1987 overdose, and the No. 8 power ballad "Without You," followed in the summer of 1990 by "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" (No. 19). The record finally started running out of Top 40 steam with its fifth single, "Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)," which rose no further than No. 78 on the pop charts while squeaking into the Top 40 at rock radio.
But if the number of potential hits from the record was obviously finite, demand for the band's music seemed endless – to the point that the months following the release of Dr. Feelgood found them confined to a grueling tour schedule that sent them hurtling toward burnout.
"For our whole lives, every one of us had fucking fantasized about being exactly where we were on that tour, but after two years, we came to hate and dread our jobs. Nikki liked to compare it to an erection: It feels great for a few minutes, but when it won't go down after hours ... it starts to hurt like no other pain known to man," explained Lee in The Dirt , looking back on the end of the tour by adding, "Dude, you've never seen four motherfuckers split up and go their own way faster than we did."
Unfortunately for the band's fans, once they split up, it would prove incredibly difficult to put them back together. They released a placeholder hits collection, Decade of Decadence , in the fall of 1991, and the three new songs tacked onto the compilation ended up being the last songs Neil would record as the lead singer of Motley Crue before unceremoniously departing the lineup in February 1992.
Neil eventually returned in 1997, after the band recorded a self-titled effort with replacement singer John Corabi). Still, the momentum they'd worked so hard to build over those first 10 years was broken, and Motley Crue never returned to the commercial heights they scaled with Dr. Feelgood .

Dr. Feelgood: Watch Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee Gleefully Twirl a Drumstick After Undergoing Successful Hand Surgery
by Matt Friedlander February 19, 2024, 10:20 am
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has revealed that he can twirl a drumstick with his right hand again for the first time in years after undergoing a hand operation three weeks ago. In an Instagram message posted Saturday, February 17, Lee shared details about his surgery and recovery, as well as some grisly photos of the hand and a video of him showing off his drum-twirling skills .
Videos by American Songwriter
“Well kids, it’s show n tell time… hope this doesn’t wreck your lunch,” the 61-year-old rocker wrote. “only 3 weeks ago i underwent a hand surgery by @drcohenhandsurgeon [Dr. Glenn Cohen.] He addressed 2 debilitating issues for me as a drummer, keyboard player and pretty much everything to do with my right hand. And yesterday was f—ing monumental for me to the point of tears …. I have my life back and my money makers 🙌🏼.”

Lee explained that he had the operation to address dexterity issues he was experiencing because of Dupuytren’s contracture and carpal tunnel syndrome.
“[F]or you drummers and musicians out there i can say it’s possible to fix!” he continued. “I’m able to twirl my sticks again… i haven’t been able to do that in a few years because of the [Dupuytren’s] Contracture and carpal tunnel issues that are now gone! “@drcohenhandsurgeon and the staff there I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL.”

Dupuytren’s contracture is described as “an abnormal thickening in the palm of the hand,” which can cause one or more fingers to curl in toward the palm. Lee posted a few photos of his surgery, showing part of his hand and his ring finger opened up to the bone. Another pic shows the musician’s sewn-up hand, with a scar running from his wrist to his ring finger. Yet another photo shows a long piece of scar tissue that was removed from the hand.
Lee Shows Off His Regained Drum-Twirling Skills
Lee also posted a video showing how he can now twirl a drumstick again. In the clip, Lee shows how his fingers were bent before the operation, making him unable to perform the maneuver. He then demonstrates how he can now twirl a drumstick with ease.
“Now that it’s open, I can make the twirl. Crazy!” Lee declares, then pumps his fist with glee. “Oh, yes! That’s a beautiful thing.”
Mötley Crüe’s 2024 Concert Plans
With his hand back in full working order, Lee will be hitting the road with Mötley Crüe a little later this year.
The band currently has eight confirmed concerts on the books for 2024. The shows run from a May 3-4 engagement in Atlantic City, New Jersey, through an August 29 performance at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul. You can check out the full list of shows at Motley.com .

The Song Vince Neil Wants Back in Motley Crue’s Set For the First Time in Over 10 Years
D uring an appearance on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation with host Eddie Trunk , Vince Neil revealed which Motley Crue song he wants back in the set for the first time in over 10 years.
A band well-known for their litany of hits, Motley Crue’s setlists are often reflective of just that. There are 11 songs the band has performed over 1,000 times and the one Neil wants falls a couple hundred shy of that tally.
The answer came when his bandmate, guitarist John 5 , called into the show. He even lobbed a question toward his singer, asking, “Is there any song that we don’t play that you would want to play live?”
Singling out a track Crue have not played since reuniting, Neil offers, “I always liked the song ‘Red Hot.'” “Me too!” John 5 enthuses, sharing a similar affinity for the speedy Shout at the Devil track.

“We used to do it,” Neil adds, “I’m sure, John, you know it. You know the song. We could start rehearsing it right before the show and he’d get it and we’d get it. It’s a fun song.”
The question is then flipped back on John 5, who is smitten with the entire ’80s catalog. “Anything off Too Fast For Love or Shout at the Devil or Theatre of Pain or Girls Girls Girls or Dr. Feelgood (laughs). Any of those, I’d love to do. That’d be great,” he muses.

“red hot” live stats.
According to setlist.fm, “Red Hot” is Motley Crue’s 12th most-played song live , having been performed 643 times. Beyond a guitar solo, which has been featured at Crue shows 813 times, the rest of the most frequently played songs are all over the 1,000 mark.
The last time the band played “Red Hot” was Oct. 6, 2013 as part of Motley Crue’s residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
It was first performed on April 19, 1982 at Perkins Palace in Pasadena, California, well over a year before Shout at the Devil was released.
