Spiders & Snakes on Motley Crue Tribute

Posted on Friday, July 4, 2008 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments4 Comments

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.

I am pretty sure that London got a deal, but just too late in the day. Isn't D'Priest also a renamed London ? Or are they a renamed Odin ? I forget.

Christian,

I honestly can't remember if London had a deal during their "classic period." I think a deal came after the Decline of Western Civilization...of course, I could be wrong.

As for Odin, you might be thinking of the new name DC4. Of course, both Odin and DC4 are playing Rocklahoma...the intersection of both bands is the Duncan brothers. Nadir D'Priest was the lead singer of London (at several different times).

That sounds really cool! I'm looking forward to this now...
I like what I've heard from Spiders & Snakes. I have a song from them on the "Hollywood Rocks!" compilation called "California Slide".
