Motley Crue Tribute Includes Jack Daniel’s Bottles to Raise Money for Charity

Through the years, Motley Crue has spent a lot of time rocking Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Calif., with the legendary Whisky A Go-Go club among its many haunts.

So if any band deserves to be honored at the 2011 Sunset Strip Music Festival, it’s the Crue. The tribute, set for Aug. 18, is going to involve real whiskey: special-edition bottles of Jack Daniel’s, with proceeds going to a charity that’s very dear to one Crue member.

About 290 bottles of the whiskey — each featuring a medallion with the engraving “specially selected for Motley Crue” — will be available at the festival for a recommended donation of $100 to the Skylar Neil Foundation. Crue singer Vince Neil started the nonprofit organization in honor of daughter Skylar, who died of cancer in 1995 at age 4.

“It’s hard to imagine rock ‘n’ roll without Motley Crue or Jack Daniel’s, and we’re honored to have bottled this special offering for our friends at the foundation,” said Jeff Norman, a master taster at Jack Daniel’s. “And we’re particularly pleased that donations will go to a worthy cause close to the band. As ‘The Crue’ returns to their roots on the Strip, we couldn’t be happier to be part of this special occasion.”

A silent auction is scheduled to take place on the same night as the Crue tribute, and the items up for bidding will include a Jack Daniel’s barrel autographed by the band, plus a framed Jack Daniel’s Sunset Strip street pole banner.
