Nikki Sixx & Vince Neil-Motley Crue-Devore-1983
Motley Crue was never supposed to be a part of Heavy Metal Day at the US Festival in 1983. But, at the last minute, Quiet Riot was unable to perform, and Motley Crue was recruited to fill in as the opening act. I happened to run into them backstage (actually it was a small lake with a pier), and they were kind enough to pose for a picture. Recently I crossed paths with Vince Neil again, and I showed him the picture. When I told him that it was from the US Festival in 1983 he smiled. When I pointed out that Nikki Sixx was standing next to him, he said "That's Nikki?".
