To say Mötley Crüe is not a fan of the Reelz documentary series Breaking the Band is an understatement.
While the episode focused on the history of Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil specifically expressed anger on coverage of his departure from the band following an argument in 1992.
“Breaking the band, fucking memories from a manager Doug Thaler who can’t remember that he’s the one who actually broke up the band!” Neil posted on Instagram. “The band didn’t break up because of me racing. It broke up because he was too much of a pussy who didn’t just say, ‘Hey guys, let’s take a week off and come back with cooler heads.’ He called me an hour later and said I was out of the band! Great management!”

Nikki Sixx also expressed his disapproval via Twitter. “Breaking the Band was not authorized by Motley Crue,” he said. “Our lawyers sent them a cease-and-desist and further action will be taken.”
