"Motley Crüe have signed a contract that will permanently dissolve the legendary rock group after one last tour. With the announcement of their second farewell tour in less than a decade, the rockers vowed that this time, once and for all, they are calling it quits.

At yesterday's press conference in Los Angeles, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx inscribed their signatures on a legally-binding "cessation of touring agreement", vouchsafed by attorney Doug Mark. Although Motley Crüe plan to play 72 North American cities in 2014, followed by international dates next year, the four members will go their separate ways when The Final Tour is over. If they do not, they can apparently be sued - though it's not clear by whom.

It's a cute gimmick.  It doesn't mean anything, but I have no doubt that they're serious about retiring as of right now.

What kind of shape is Mick Mars in? Doesn't he have some degenerative bone disease? Can he play live very well?

He had hip replacement surgery a few years back and has said it alleviated a lot of his chronic pain, but he's also nearly 63, so I think this will be it for him.

I've heard he still nails it live.

Rock and roll retirements are like wrestling retirements. They don't generally stick. Whatever legal stuff they're trotting out right now as PR to show that this is it, I have no doubt in my mind we'll see them back on the road by 2017 with the big comeback tour.

The "agreement" does serve a purpose - it prevents one member from putting together a band and using the Motley Crüe name in the future.

Seen them 3 times. Not once did I actually want to though. Vince's voice has been shot for 15 years

Got my tickets this morning to the August 29 Jones Beach show.  A few big ones to check off my bucket list this year, including Black Sabbath in March.

A buddy just emailed me that tickets, likely lawns, are $20 on Groupon. I hadn't planned on going but for $20 you can't go wrong. Also, I have never seen Alice before and I always wanted to.

A few different ticket tiers.  With fees I paid about $70 each.  The most expensive was about $140.  I think for $40 you can get the cheapest seats (probably $25 plus fees).  It's the fees that really kill you.  I try to go to the box office and buy directly whenever possible, but I can't do that with Jones Beach.

For the Houston show, lawn tix are $25 plus Ticketmaster fees. Most expensive ticket is $125.

Wow, those are way cheaper than I expected. I may just go after all.

Heading to Jones Beach in a little bit to see this show.  Pretty excited for it, I've heard good reviews of the tour so far. 

I was thinking about their catalog today and ranking their albums.  It's interesting because their hits are somewhat spread out and some albums have a big song on it and then tons of filler because even they admitted they were too fucked up to make a whole album.  I think some of their less commercially successful albums are actually their best.  This is what I came up with, in terms of albums from top to bottom:

1. Dr. Feelgood - I think their only complete album with no throw-aways and a good mix of hard-rocking anthems and power ballads
2. Saints of Los Angeles - best 2000s album made by any of the hair metal bands and very complete
3. Motley Crue - the John Corabi album gets no love but is a very complete effort with a harder sound
4. Shout at the Devil - title track, "Looks That Kill", "Too Young to Fall in Love", and their best recorded cover on "Helter Skelter"
5. Girls, Girls, Girls - starts off with the title track and "Wild Side" and then fizzles from there
6. Too Fast For Love - debut doesn't hold up as well as it should but "Live Wire" still kicks ass
7. Theatre of Pain - "Home Sweet Home" and a lot of crap
8. Generation Swine - return of Vince Neil album was wholly uninspired and for the paycheck
9. New Tattoo - does anyone even remember this 2000 album was produced?

Couldn't pay me to go see them live. They haven't had a good album since the 1st. Everything else is to " studio enhanced" .
