There isn’t one piece of rock and roll excess that Motley Crue hasn’t at least touched on at one point or another.
If you’ve even seen a bit of what was happening in the movie The Dirt, the guys liked to get into some of the most debaucherous behavior imaginable, following in their idols’ footsteps and taking it that one step further. If you want to get into the really crazy stuff though, we have to talk about Ozzy Osbourne chipping in as well.
During their joint tour promoting Shout at the Devil, Ozzy had an ongoing competition going with the rest of the band centered around who could outgross each other, including one infamous instance where Ozzy snorted a line of ants off the sidewalk when he was out of cocaine.
That would be any other band’s grossest moment, but the Prince of Darkness had something else in mind, with Nikki Sixx saying “he hiked up the sundress, grabbed his dick, and pissed on the pavement.
Without even looking at his growing audience, he knelt down and, getting the dress soggy in the puddle, lapped it up. Then he stood up, eyes blazing and mouth wet with urine, looked straight at me and said ‘Do that, Sixx.’”
Tommy Lee picks up the story from there, saying that Sixx tried to outdo Ozzy at his own game: “all of sudden we’re sitting out by the pool having drinks, and Nikki pisses on the ground and goes to lick up his own piss to freak Ozzy out.
Well, Ozzy beats him to the punch and starts licking it up… this is fucked up. What is wrong with you two?”
If you ask the rest of the crew though, this wasn’t even the last of the debauchery, with Ozzy going on even more tirades of room trashing and the tame (by comparison) rock and roll excesses of the ‘80s.
There’s definitely a joke that bands in the ‘80s were shoving everything up their noses, but apparently, not even bodily fluids were off the table here.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Watch Tommy Lee himself explain the shenanigans, complete with a too disgusting to type out part 2 of this incident that involved Ozzy’s feces and a Vincent Van Gogh-esque painting session.
