They’ve been riding a bit of a hot wave since the release of their Netflix movie, “The Dirt,’ and now Motley Crue has released a teaser clip for the 30th-anniversary edition of their album ‘Dr. Feelgood.’ The album will arrive on Nov 29. The clip can be seen below.
The special release will include new packaging, while a deluxe edition contains a colored vinyl LP, three picture discs, a doctor’s bag, prescription notepad, bandages, and other surprises.
‘Dr Feelgood’ was the band’s best-selling album – six-times platinum in North American sales and two Grammy nominations and its first to top the Billboard 200 chart. In a prepared statement, bassist Nikki Sixx said, “After feeling robbed of a No.1 album with ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ we were hell-bent on topping ourselves on every level. Bringing Bob Rock to produce and push us musically and lyrically was just what the doctor ordered.” He added, “The band was clean, lean and sober, and this album has some of our proudest work.”
The video clip noted that “in addition to being the biggest album of the band’s career, ‘Dr. Feelgood’ has had a tremendous effect on pop culture. Inspired by Nikki Sixx’s near-death overdose, the autobiographical ‘Kickstart My Heart’ dives into the band’s sobriety. Over the last 30 years, Sixx has used his platform to be a part of the drug awareness and recovery conversation, an issue which continues to be relevant today more than ever.”
Regarding the new line of ‘Dr. Feelgood’ apparel, the statement pointed out, Motley Crue have “played a key role in the fashion culture of the ‘80s. Their iconic imagery continues to be a staple with rock apparel and fashion brands.”
