Motley Crue Movie: Latest

The Crue´s autobiography The Dirt is one of most people´s (very) dirty pleasures, so we know that many Guitarist readers will be waiting for the mooted movie adaptation.

According to, drummer Tommy Lee knows who he wants to be cast to play him:

“Johnny Depp would be my choice to play me; he´s the best ever.”

He went on to say “We´re working on [the movie], trying to find the right producers and director and all that sort of stuff.”

We´d assume that finding women with sufficiently low morals to play the litany of Hollywood girlies prevalent throughout the tome would be the most knotty problem...and we'd get Mr Depp to play us too!

Who else should they get to play the band? Owen Wilson as Vince Neil? Russell (or, indeed, Jo...) Brand as Nikki Sixx? Andy Serkis as Mick Mars?

Answers on a postcard...

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Guitarist magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
