Coming April 30, PINK FLOYD, Live at Knebworth 1990.

If we asked you what Eastern NC country band PARMALEE and MOTLEY CRUE have in common, you’d probably say “why are you even asking me this?” Well, here’s why.  In a recent interview, Parmalee’s MATT THOMAS and JOSH MCSWAIN were asked if it’s true that they once collaborated with Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, and the answer is yes. Quote, “Back in the day we were out in California working on recording some songs and the guy that owned the studio had worked with Nikki before and somehow we weaseled our way into getting him to come produce and write some songs with us.  “He ended up writing two songs with us.  It was pretty cool.”  Unfortunately, we don’t know the names of those songs. Listen to the interview here.
