T-Bone was nice enough to give me a ticket to the Motley Crue concert at the Minnesota State Fair last night. Even better, he gave me a ride to the ultimate 80's concert in the ultimate 80's vehicle: his black corvette. It was almost too perfect. I didn't have any leather or faded black jeans to wear to the concert, so I wore my new Greasy Cooters track jacket. Then I tried to pose all Fonzi-like by the car, but I just don't have the modelesque instincts to pull it off:
When I naively asked who the guitarist was on stage with the stupid-looking top hat, T-Bone replied with utter contempt, "That's Mick Mars, you dumb bastard." People take their Crue so seriously. Here's us rockin' to "Home Sweet Home" at the great Minnesotan get-together:
Then afterwards we went to some biker bar on the other side of town, where lead singer Vince Neil was rumored to be making an appearance. Needless to say, I didn't exactly feel comfortable in that environment, but I made the most of it, and eventually got this shot:
Thick blue eye-shadow and a sports jersey is always a nice look. And apparently Vince got paid $7,000 to show up at the bar and shout obscenities over the microphone for 30-seconds. Or at least that's what the way-too-talkative man at the urinal next to me said.
Anyway, I'm all Crued out.

The blue eye shadow made the whole look. It's also sad to see The Chargers getting more love in MN then they do here IN San Diego.

This is certainly a condensed "crue" story from what I heard...there was not even a mention of partying it up in savage post bar?
I am so lucky to have the "inside" scoop being I am friends with "planet dan"

You were having so much fun with the Crue you failed to notice the stage was on fire. Vince Neil totally did that girl later that night - Jersey and all!

I can't tell who's hand is up, but just so you know: the next time you're rocking out, the "Rock On" sign is made with only the index and pinky fingers, thumb pulled in. With the thumb out, it's "I love you." But then again, you might just have meant to do that. So what do I know?

Yeah I kinda screwed up my headbanger hand sign, but I originally went through my hair band phase 15 years ago, so I had a little catching up to do.

As long as you made sure to get some fried cheese curds, that's all. 'Cuz it's just not the Minnesota State Fair without the curds.
