Reverb columnist Duff McKagan was poached by the print folks this week to write about his friends in Motley Crue in preview of Crue Fest at White River on Monday. It's classic Duff. Regular readers know what I'm talking about.
The year was 1989, and I'd recently bought a small vacation place in Lake Arrowhead, Calif., to get out of Los Angeles in the hope of periodically escaping my bad drink and drug habits. Little did I know that Tommy Lee of Motley Crue also had a place up there. Within two months I was throwing up blood at Tommy's cabin. Nobody, not even me at the time, could "hang" with the dudes in Motley Crue.
