There's a new Motley Crue tribute album in the works. Crue Believers is currently in production and will ship under the Deadline/Cleopatra Records imprint.
Just who is slated to appear on Crue Believers? It looks like L.A. Guns (I'm not sure which version), Bulletboys, Enuff Z' Nuff, Gilby Clarke, Jack Russell, Stevie Rachelle, Spiders & Snakes and more.
Spiders & Snakes provide their version of "Public Enemy #1" for Crue Believers. The album is slated for a fall release.
Spiders & Snakes will play both Rocklahoma and the South Texas Rock Fest next week before heading back to Hollywood to play a string of Sunset Strip shows. Lizzie Grey is probably the most famous member of Spiders & Snakes...and perhaps the most knowledgeable person to be included on a Motley tribute album. After all, Lizzie Grey and Nikki Sixx performed in the band London together before Nikki hit it big. Plus, there's the small detail of Lizzie helping Nikki write "Public Enemy #1."
I never understood why London failed to land a record deal. Throughout the late 70s and early 80s there were a slew of musicians in and out of the band. Most of those members went on to stardom, hitting the big time in Motley Crue,
Guns n' Roses and Cinderella.
I'm not sure if this is a new recording of "Public Enemy #1" for Spiders & Snakes. If memory serves, the band provided the song for a Motley tribute album a few years back.
Here's Spiders & Snakes in a very odd recycling commercial.
