Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil suffered a broken foot at some point during or leading up to the band's show at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio last night (September 12th).

The details are still pretty scarce regarding the specifics of the accident. Motley Crue were scheduled to play tonight at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, Ontario, and in a recent Tweet, Vince Neil said the show must go on while apologizing to fans in advance for not being able to give them "the show you deserve".

Including the Toronto show, there are nine gigs left on The Tour featuring Motley Crue and Kiss. The trek is scheduled to wrap up on September 29th in Mexico City.

Motley Crue made a statement on their Facebook page which read:

"While Vince Neil sustained two fractures in his foot during last night's show in Cuyahoga Falls we'd like to let everyone know that this injury will not affect upcoming shows on The Tour with Kiss.

"Tonight's show in Toronto will go on as planned, though perhaps with a few less high kicks from Mr Neil. Vince would like to sincerely thank everyone who has reached out with well wishes!"



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
