Motley Crue / Alice Cooper (Live Reveiw 7.21.14)

Ughh… Why did I go to this again?

Openeing act was The Raskins a NYC band (Supposedly) I’m assuming they are young, they do their best at trying to sound like a NYC underground (ish) rock band (In other words trying to sound like a Detroit band from the 1970′s) They buthchered a Greg Khin song and did a straight version of Iggy Pops Seek And Destroy. Other than that they had some original songs that to be fair might be less boring in the recorded format.

Next up:

Alice Cooper – Wow what agreat show, loved it! L.A. Kiss official guitar godess Nita Strauss is in the line up now and was on fire, the crowd could not get enough of her because she shreds! Alice Coopers voice has seen better days but it was always growly to begin with. All the theatrics were in place and if you have never seen him perform you must! It’s like rocking out to a Universal Monster Movie.

Motley Crue:

Tommy Lee = Still a beast but seemed like he was phoning it in.

Nikki Sixx = Great as always but seemed pissed off.

Mick Mars = Sloppy and noisy, his solo was horrible.

Vince Neil = Winded after first song, forgot lyrics, voice has lost most of it’s power.

If you like to drink and be sentimental you might not notice how bad Motley Crue is in this day and age. Seemed more like a sad cash grab than a victory lap.

Wait til Alice Cooper does a solo tour and see that instead.
