VH1 To Debut 'The Fabulous Life of Mötley Crüe' Next Week

On Wednesday, March 2 at 11:00 p.m. EST, VH1 will debut "The Fabulous Life of Mötley Crüe". An episode description on VH1's web site reads as follows:

"In 1980, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Vince Neil were just four guys living in a trashy apartment off the Sunset Strip. By 1987, they were rock gods who could afford to trash anything they wanted. From their personalized tour jet to their vintage guitars to their all-access groupies, nothing was off limits to MÖTLEY CRÜE. If you think bling, Gucci and Maybachs are Fab — think again. Meet the four metal maniacs who invented fabulous: MÖTLEY CRÜE.

"When you're a famous rock star, your life is one big world tour. And no one's world was more intense than the CRÜE's. Their stages were powered by 100,000 watts of sound, 11 tons of equipment and 2,000 lights. And their spandex ensembles? They were the custom-designed to be the pants everyone wanted to get into.

"An all-star band needs an all-star ride. When they weren't on the MÖTLEY CRÜE signature jet, they toured in their 1986 Eagle bus — a tricked-out ride with only one rule: female fans had to enter in the nude. An when they weren't cruising the states in their mobile bachelor pad, the boys were riding in black and tan corvettes and customized Harleys.

"The band eventually tired of the Playboy mansion and the hoards of eager groupies, so they headed down the aisle for wedded bliss. Mud wrestler Sharisse Rudell, who married Neil, and 'Baywatch' beauty Donna D'Errico, who wed Sixx, were not your average desperate housewives. And nothing compared to Tommy Lee's rock star wedding to 'Dynasty' diva Heather Locklear, where the groom wore white leather and the bride dressed in a skin-tight mermaid suit.

"In 2005, after two decades and 13 albums, MÖTLEY CRÜE is back and bigger than ever. Prepare yourselves for the tour of the 21st century. From Milwaukee to Manchester and San Juan to San Diego, the 'Red White and Crüe' Tour is going to rock our world stadium-style. And come February, MÖTLEY's signature arena rock will be blasting in every home across the country with the release of their double-disc greatest hits album. The capper? The CRÜE's even hitting the big-screen with a movie version of their best-selling tell-all book 'The Dirt: Confessions of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band'. Get ready for the biggest comeback in rock and roll history. You won't want to miss The Fabulous Life Classic: MÖTLEY CRÜE."
