It was January 17, 1981 when Nikki Sixx first jammed with Tommy Lee. Later on Vince Neil and Mick Mars were recruited and the rest is history. “It’s always been about great songs and over-the-top live shows for us. The fans were always right by our side. I don't know where all of the years went. It went by in a flash. What I can’t forget, are the 4 decades of fans who have counted themselves as CRÜEHEADS from day one, supporting us through thick and thin. To them we are in debt and thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” the band said in a statement.
