We had a great time at the Motley Crue/Poison/NY Dolls show last night at Bill Graham Civic Center.
Unfortunately, due to Casey and my beer addictions we only caught the last song from the NY Dolls. They played Personality Crisis. They sounded great and I was surprised to see the great Earl Slick on guitar.
Poison was ridiculous but I enjoyed their set. My favorite part was when the backdrop dropped to reveal another backdrop : A band portrait, complete with a shirtless Bret Michaels . They start the song and Bret is wearing a shirt with the EXACT same photo as the backdrop! Good times.
Motley Crue delivered a great live spectacle even though their performance seemed uninspired. As much as I wanted to dislike their set, they actually put on a great show.
I did notice something quite funny during their set at least 2 times.
On the video screen behind them, the computer that runs the video had a kernel panic.
Check out the video below of Tommy’s drum solo. 37 seconds in, the kernel panic takes place.
