How does one convince Motley Crue to do a cover of Madonna’s Like a Virgin?
It went down like this.
“I went over to Tommy [Lee]’s house, and [producer] Bob Rock was over there,” Sixx told Rolling Stone. “I said, ‘I’m gonna play you something and go in the other room so in case you don’t like it, you won’t punch me in the face.’ And Tommy started laughing. I started playing it and all of a sudden, you just saw Tommy’s face light up.”
“I heard the demo and it was like, ‘This is fucking genius,’” Lee added. “When it drops down into half-time, it gets so heavy. This is right up our alley and sort of ironic that Vince [Neil] is singing ‘Like a Virgin,’ which is not even close. Or for that matter of fact, all of us.”
And now we have Crue’s version of Like a Virgin. Enjoy!
