…’til it hurts.

Motley Crue’s biopic, “The Dirt,” premiered at the Sunset Strip’s legendary Whisky A Go Go rock club before hitting Netflix, and the Whisky was decorated accordingly. Check out this time-lapse video of Robert Vargas’ awesome mural.

On the Rotten Tomatoes website, critics give “The Dirt” a score of 43 percent. But fans give the movie 85 percent.

That’s exactly how Motley Crue has always wanted it.

Some quotes from the negative reviews are hilarious. For example, “[The film] spends almost two hours glamorizing ***tty behavior.”

Gee, no kidding? Really? But that’s what happened. ***tty behavior can be a lot of fun. Let’s take it to the top and watch it burn.

It brings to mind a snippet of my personal experience backstage with Motley Crue in 1984. I was involved in conversation with Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and Waysted bassist Pete Way, best known for his work in UFO.

Nikki: “Pete, we should form a band. Just me and you, two bass players. And they could pay us in cocaine.”

Pete (turning to me): “I’m not sure you should be hearing all this.”

Me: “Don’t worry. I won’t steal the idea.”

More pretty strippers with the big red lips…
