Vince Neil: ‘Courtney Love told me Motley Crue were one of Kurt Cobain’s favourite bands’ (Q339 Preview)

motelycrueMotely Crue have told Q they didn’t fear the rise of grunge in the 1990s - and were in fact early supporters of Nirvana.

Fielding your inquiries in this month’s Cash For Questions in Q339 out now, Vince Neil says his band welcomed the new scene and never thought it would mean the end for older rockers.

“We went on [MTV’s] Headbanger's Ball and we'd had an early pressing of Nevermind. We were talking about a bunch of upcoming bands and told people to check that album out,” he declares.

“We supported that whole thing. I don't know why people say grunge killed rock. Only people whose careers were on the way out said that. It didn't seem to kill us. I was talking to Courtney Love one time and she told me that one of Kurt's favourite records was [Mötley Crüe’s 1981 album] Too Fast For Love."
