Motley Crue streams a remastered version of the video of “Live Wire.”
A year after the band signed with Elektra Records in 1981, the independent release of their debut album, Too Fast For Love, was made. “Live Wire” was initially part of it and the video was first featured together with the clips that originally surfaced in sync with the re-launch.
Remixed by producer Roy Thomas Baker, the major label release introduced Motley Crue to the music fans outside the Los Angeles scene. The band became “regulars” on the Sunset Strip club circuit since their formation in January of 1981, with singer Vince Neil completing the lineup three months later.
Weeks before revealing they had sold the rights to their entire recorded catalog to global music brand BMG in what was referred to as the company’s largest single catalog acquisition since it was founded in 2008, Motley Crue released a newly-remastered 40th anniversary digital version of Too Fast For Love in 2021.
Five years after signing an agreement that they would no longer perform together following the end of their official farewell tour in 2015, Motley Crue announced they would reunite for a stadium tour with Def Leppard—after a series of pandemic delays.
