Female-fronted Traditional/Power Metal for the most part, occasionally there's Prog elements mixed in, but we definitely didn't play any of those songs for this show. Here are some sample tracks:

We were treated as practically sub-human. We weren't allowed in the venue until 10 minutes before we had to do our soundcheck, and our passes were voided within 5 minutes of getting off stage. We were given absolutely no accommodations (they charged us for water, for fuck's sake), and them forcing us to price-match them on their ridiculously overpriced merchandise absolutely destroyed any chance we had at making any kind of money, or essentially actually making people remember us after the performance. It's also worth noting that the band played two nights in a row at the venue and we played #2 - so there was absolutely NO press coverage of it. MC didn't even allow the band's photographer in the night we played. Truth be told, we actually got more worthwhile exposure from the announcement that we won than we got by actually playing the show. Yeah, it's nice to be able to SAY we did it, but I really don't think it did us very much good in the big picture.

This is total bullshit. It's a small metal world, and I'm thrilled you put the word out about your experience with Motley Crue. Your band is not a threat to them whatsoever, and there is no excuse for any of it. You should have been happy to open for them, and it's unfortunate that those circumstances prevented it. Personally, I don't care how 'big' a group is, this kind of behavior is a fucking stain on their reputation.

Those merchandising prices are insane. Who even pays $20 for big name CDs let alone small bands? Had Motley Crue let you guys simply price your merch at your normal rates I can't imagine they'd be losing out on any noticeable amount of business. That's really scummy. And it's not like they should be hurting for cash.

At least you got some positive things out of it, how many bands can say they actually shared a stage with a big name band? I guess they figured if you guys sold merch for so much cheaper than them, that people might buy your stuff and not theirs, pretty lame. And opening bands get treated like shit most of the time, so don't feel bad, just nature of the business.

Thanks! I mainly play guitar, but on the album I also played all the keyboards, did a good deal of the backing vocals, and I'm also the primary songwriter, at least regarding the music.

sorry to hear that, but at least you got to play to a huge crowd... that didn't really give a shit. I can only imagine how weird that would feel.
