This awesome concert tee is a souvenir from Motley Crue's 1989 to 1990 Dr. Feelgood Tour. The double-sided t-shirt features amazing, eye-popping graphics designed by the legendary illustrator Pushead, who is arguably best known for his artwork for the band Metallica.
Dr. Feelgood was the group's fifth studio album and their first to ever reach the top position on the Billboard 200. It was also the group's first release since the start of their new sobriety. Prior to Dr. Feelgood, the band's struggle with addiction had gone totally out of control. Doug Thaler and Doc McGhee, who were their managers at the time, actually refused to let the band go on tour overseas as they feared that some of them might "come back in bodybags" if they came back at all.
After a successful trip to rehab, the band started working on the album, and each member recorded their parts separately. The idea behind this approach was to minimize infighting and improve individual performance. This new recording method proved successful as the majority of fans and critics went crazy for Dr. Feelgood. It included one of their most memorable singles, "Kickstart My Heart" which peaked at the No. 27 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.The song was actually written about a near-death experience from the band's bassist, Nikki Sixx, after he overdosed on heroin. Supposedly the song's title phrase was a nod to the six shots of adrenaline that were injected into his heart by a paramedic.
The tag says large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium.
