MÖTLEY CRÜE members Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx have both slammed the Reelz documentary series “Breaking The Band”, which focuses on the history of their band.
Vince wrote on social media:
“Breaking the band, f*cking memories from a manager Doug Thaler who can’t remember that he’s the one who actually broke up the band! The band didn’t break up because of me racing. It broke up because he was too much of a p*ssy who didn’t just say, ‘Hey guys, let’s take a week off and come back with cooler heads.’ He called me an hour later and said I was out of the band! Great management!”
“What he didn’t say was, instead of me going racing I put out a top 10 single with ‘You’re Invited’ — oops he forgot! Then an album called ‘Exposed’ — oops, forgot again! No wonder he was fired shortly after.”
“Breaking the Band was not authorized by MÖTLEY CRÜE. Our lawyers sent them a cease-and-desist and further action will be taken. @ReelzChannel Is the bottom of the barrel.”
He further added:
“Should @ReelzChannel be liable for putting out shows without so many artist approval? I am very disappointed that they think they can tell our LIFE story just to sell advertising ( mostly incorrect ) and without any bodies permission.”
