"Down at the Whisky" as written by and James/ashba Michael....
Runaways in a van
All go straight to Hollywood
We'll leave a scar
Don't give a damn
Vandalize the neighborhood

Do you remember when?

We slept all day
In our clothes
But that's okay
In Hollywood

Another shot
Another show
All night long at the Whiskey A Go-Go

Do you remember when?

We were on the run
Got loaded like a shotgun
Living out our dreams
Down at the Whiskey

We never made a dime
But god we had a good time
We always made a scene
Down at the Whiskey

LA girls they payed the rent
While we got drunk on Sunset Strip
And all the cash they made we spent
On tattoos and cigarettes

Do you remember when?

We were on the run
Got loaded like a shotgun
Living out our dreams
Down at the Whiskey

We never made a dime
But god we had a good time
We always made a scene
Down at the Whiskey

Oh we were throwing fights
And we were gettin' high
Living out our dreams
Down at the Whiskey

We were on the run
Got loaded like a shotgun
Living out our dreams
Down at the Whiskey

We never made a dime
But god we had a good time
We always made a scene
Down at the Whiskey

Yeah yeah yeah...

    General CommentSimple, this song is about the good 'ol days, before the huge tours. Just playing packed shows at the Whisky and hanging out on the Sunset Strip.
    In December when my band played the Whisky, it was one of the greatest moments of my life. I was on the stage once graced by the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and of Course Motley Crue.

    Great Song.

    General CommentThis song is basically about the band's days on the immortal Sunset Strip. The entire "Saints of L.A" album is about the band's early days. This song is an amazing piece of musical history...The Crue have been the soundtrack to my life...the break -ups, the fun times, and all the crap in between. "Saints of L.A" is an awesome album to work out to. Rock music needed the Crue's injection of old school sleaze, and lyrical content.
