Motley Crue Swag Up for Grabs

Posted on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 at 12:05AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments18 Comments

MCband2008.jpgIt has turned into giveaway week here at Bring Back Glam! Today, I have some nice Motley Crue items to celebrate the release of Saints of Los Angeles and Crue Fest. Up for grabs: a copy of Motley's biography The Dirt, some copies of Saints of Los Angeles and a big poster. 

How do you win? Send me cupcakes! Ok, seriously - answer this trivia question:

Nikki Sixx messed up his shoulder pretty bad around 1983. Matthew John Trippe maintains that he was approached by Motley management to fill in as Sixx since Nikki was apparently "incapacitated." Trippe also claims to have written some of Motley's most famous songs - and even sued the band for back royalties at one point. What are the six songs Trippe claims to have written? (Hint: one of the tunes is my favorite Motley Crue song).

If you think you know the answer, send an email to allyson@bringbackglam.com by Friday,  July 11 at 11:59 p.m. E.S.T. Please put "Motley contest" in the subject line of your entry. Good luck.

matt was indeed in motley crue and there is a photo of him as nikki sixx with fans..

Deep Sixxed - Incorrect. Trippe was an imposter with mental problems. He was never a member or even remotely involved with Motley Crue.

Matt Trippe Lived in erie as I did......I am a pro guitarist and have been for well over 30 years. matt used to come over to my house...he could not play the guitar or bass at the time. in fact if you look back on MTV arcives John Norris interviewed me and I was also in Karrang magazine........Doc Maggee and doug Thaler also contacted me as did Nikki's attorney. the case was thrown out of court because I told the attorney...put a bass amp and guitar amp in court and I will come in and play every crue song note for note. matt should be able to play them without a hitch.....needless to say it never got that far!
