It’s about Drugs?  Shocking.

It’s about Drugs? Shocking.

Motley Crue singer Vince Neil turns 58 years old today (February 8th). Motley Crue’s “Dr. Feelgood” is the title of their best selling single and their only number 1 album.  Go figure; the Crue are singing about a Hollywood drug dealer sung fast, like a rap song…but it’s not one. Vince Neil says what it was about, with a little help from drummer Tommy Lee.

Vince: “The song is about a guy named Rat Tailed Jimmy [sings] ‘a second class hood, he deals out in Hollywood.’ About a drug dealer that’s going down in Hollywood. It’s kind of like a rap song – fast lyrics, you know.”

Tommy: “Like a lot of scatting, yeah.”

Vince: “[scats] But with the heavy chunk guitar [imitates it]. It ain’t a rap song. It’s just like, y’know, words that are fast.”
