Kiss and Motley Crue performed at Jiffy Lube Live on Friday night. Midnight Sun contributor Jay Trucker was there. Thirty years after they first toured together, Kiss and Motley Crue are back out on the road, opening their 2012 summer tour on an intermittently stormy night in Bristow. But if Crue is officially the opening act on this tour, their bigger stage show, equal-lengthed setlist and more frenzied audience suggests otherwise.  Motley Crue's stage show is a spectacle.

Hammond senior John Motley says he has learned at least one important lesson as a result of his wrestling involvement."Things don't always go your way, but that's no reason to quit or let down," said the defending county champion, who hopes to become a state champion this season.Starting as a 5-year-old, Motley dreamed of being a high school basketball star."I went to summer camps and played it all the time," he said.But by his freshman year he was only 5 feet 5 and was released from Hammond's team on the first cut.Encouraged by wrestling coach Bill Smith, who saw in Motley the kind of aggressive attitude he wanted, Motley joined the wrestling team and it proved to be a perfect match.

McDaniel heads into Friday's semifinal against Washington in the Centennial Conference tournament on a five-game winning streak. And for the last four games, senior Brad Motley has been the primary goalkeeper. The Fallston native and graduate replaced sophomore Christian Dallmus as the starter after the Green Terror's 6-5 overtime decision against Franklin & Marshall on March 31. According to coach Matt Hatton, an injury Dallmus - who had started the first 11 contests - suffered during the week of practice after that win opened the door for Motley.

The fact that all four are still alive is nothing short of miraculous. The original members of Motley Crue - lead singer Vince Neil, bassist Nikki Sixx, lead guitarist Mick Mars and drummer Tommy Lee - spent much of the Reagan era wasted on drugs and alcohol and partying with groupies around the world. The wild times were funneled into the music, producing some of the most enduring hits in heavy metal: "Live Wire," "Dr. Feelgood," "Girls, Girls, Girls" and one of the genre's best ballads, "Home Sweet Home."

Fallston junior goalkeeper Brad Motley has become a more complete player this season, adding better conditioning and decision-making to an already outstanding ability to make saves (.664 save percentage). He has developed into an asset to the team's transition scoring opportunities, his coach Matt Parks said. Motley's play has been one of the keys to the Cougars' 11-0 start this season and No. 13 ranking. Motley recognizes situations defensively and helps talk the defense into the right execution for the situation, Parks said.

MOTLEY CRUEMotley Crue (Elektra 61534)Because the singer is usually seen as being a band's "face," a lot of folks figured that Motley Crue would be a mess without Vince Neil. Well, they figured wrong. As "Motley Crue" makes plain, new singer John Corabi has no trouble taking Neil's place,delivering "Hooligan's Holiday" with an authoritative howl and slipping a nasty snarl into the sound of "Hammered." But the album's real strength is the noise made by the rest of Crue. From the Aerosmith-style boogie of "Welcome to the Numb" to turn-it-up crunch of "Power to the Music," this band has never sounded stronger.

For an artist who was a pioneer and champion of the portrayal of black life, Archibald J. Motley Jr. had a somewhat curious life. When his parents moved from his native New Orleans to Chicago in the 1890s, they settled not in a black neighborhood but in largely white Englewood.His family was Roman Catholic, and he went to a Catholic school. Jontyle Theresa Robinson writes in the catalog of his show currently at Washington's Corcoran Gallery that "all of his schoolmates and playmates were white."

John Allen's career trajectory has, so far, been pretty standard. Local rocker knocks around in a few moderately successful rock outfits, settles into a group that plays Hammerjack's and the Recher, gathers a following, gets a song played on the radio a few times, opens for Motley Crue and gets signed to a record label by one of the band members. OK, maybe that last thing is a little bit extraordinary. Playing a gig in front of a few hundred Baltimoreans is plenty cool and all that. But getting tapped for this summer's Crue Fest 2, and being signed to Crue bassist and songwriter Nikki Sixx's Eleven Seven Music?

When Motley Crue reunited in 2004 following a four-year hiatus — five years for drummer Tommy Lee, who'd gone solo in 1999 — few believed the group would stick together for much longer than one last, valedictory, squeeze-it-for-all-it's-worth tour. Soon enough, the members would be fighting, pulling temper tantrums, wanting to flee to solo projects, and the bad press would push the band into just another "Behind the Music" episode. Or so the conventional wisdom went. But seven years later, the Crue is still together.
