Brides Of Destruction Australian Tour Diary

Paul Miles of the Australian Motley Crue fan site Chronological Crue kept a tour diary of his travels behind the scenes on the Brides of Destruction Australian tour during August 2004. “Armed with a swiveling digital camera, a swag of treasured merch, and years of built-up patience, he headed off on tour,” reads a posting on the site. “Now note by note, you can read this fly-on-the-wall perspective of the Honeymoon From Hell tour and its adventures to rival the best of Buck’s Night memories!” Check out the report, with photos, here.

Brides’ LeGrand Comments On Toronto Cancellation

Brides of Destruction frontman London LeGrand has posted the following message in the “Diary” section of the band’s official web site: “People, there was talk earlier that day we would not be entering Canada because of their government not being understanding enough to realize human beings are only just that…human beings. And because of this, sometimes mistakes are made. Apparently, their officials or whoever thinks they are high and mighty enough to enforce such regulations must be free from all mistakes in life themselves. I mean, no one can possibly have such expectations of someone unless they were anything but, now could they. Nah…you’d have to be a fu**ing a**hole for that right? And authoritative figures throughout time have never been known for not being understanding, abusing their power, manipulating the sh** out of us all, or being a**holes right? Nah… of course not! And we’ve never had our rights taken away from us one by one, backed by some ‘make the rules up as you go’ lame-ass justification as an excuse that ON TOP OF IT IS PROBABLY NOT EVEN THEIR OWN WORDS, BUT WORDS RATHER FROM THEIR ADVISORS… So not only we get ripped of but get ripped off synthetically…A lie that is less than a lie, a rip-off on the rip-offs. Yeah… we’re supposed to take this sh** day to day and never crack, never make a mistake, or should I say stand up for ourselves and cross the road without our hand being held as an adult. You know… to be what we are born with the right to be, a little animalistic, a little un-caged, and I think I am short changing us by saying a little. I guess the patrol disagrees and HATH no skeletons.”
