Smokin’ In The Boys Room

It has finally started to dawn on me. To dawn on me, that this was really the last time I ever saw Mötley Crüe.

Mötley Crüe is together with Alice Cooper the first few of the bands I ever came into as far as hairmetal goes. I remember when I bought my frist Mötley album – classically, it was a best of album of course. What got me, was when I saw Tommy Lee wearing pink and blue stripes, which reminded me of Stala & SO., and therefore I figured I’d give it a go.

This was at a timeperiod when my computer imported music backwards, or more, they listed all the songs backwards. So the first I ever wound up hearing with Mötley Crüe was “Same Ol’ Situation”. I fell in love instantly, and it remains my favorite song even to this day. This was in October 2006, so technically, they made it before KISS, which I more commonly refer to as my start of my hairmetal era.

In 2007, it was announced Mötley Crüe was coming to Sweden, and we got tickets directly. Ticket wizard as I was already back then, standing tickets it was. When going to the concert, we actually stood at the front row of the second barrier, but once Mötley actually started (Papa Roach was supportband) the pressure was a little bit too much for me at the time, so I snapped some pictures and got out more to the center of the venue.


But my strongest memory, in 2007, is that I saw two women being a bit behind us in the non-crowded area dancing around to all the songs.

That’s why it’s so extremely special that I now, in 2015, am one of those women in the non-crowded area, dancing around with two of my best friends.

And that, is what I call a very special moment in music.
