The stories of Motley Crue partying are so legendary, they wrote a bestselling book about it. But, this tale could end up costing them.
On the band's (seemingly neverending) farewell tour that concluded at the end of last year, they took out a hair metal revival band named The Raskins to open the tour. According to The New York Post, The Raskins are now suing Crue, saying they bought onto the final tour for a million bucks and essentially got treated like shit.
The Raskins claims unfair conditions, including being forced to cut sets short, starting their set before doors even opened, being hazed by the Motley Crue crew, not being allowed to sell merch, and perhaps the most damning (and possibly hilarious) accusation:
“At a stop in Darien, Conn., crew members ran out on stage in monkey masks and sprayed the Raskins ‘with water guns filled with urine,’ the brothers claim in their $30 million Manhattan Supreme Court suit.”
How band must the crew have hated them to haze them like this? Pretty bad, I guess.
As MetalSucks point out, if the band doesn't win the lawsuit, not only will they be out of a lot of lawyer fees, but they will forever be known as the band that sued Crue because the band pissed all over them. What a legacy!
