What caused the three
fences to be flattened? Why Vince never sang on the recording? What did
they plaster on cars? Who got fat when his wife was pregnant? How did
he stack the Ferraris?
Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil fronted the band Rockandi with
Alverson on guitar. James first contacted Chronological Crue in
November of 1997, advising of a small correction. Now on the 1st May
2002 at 4pm Melbourne time, I finally spoke with James in California
about his days playing with Vince in Rockandi and more.
James, as you are aware, this web site traces the complete history of
Mötley Crüe and even goes back to before the band members joined the
Crüe; from their childhoods onwards. You had an association with Vince
prior to his days in Mötley Crüe. I want to talk about that today, but
before we do that I just wanted to go back on your history a little
bit, prior to those days. Are you a Californian by birth?
James Alverson: Yes.
CC: Have you always
lived in L.A.?
CC: OK. And how did you
first become involved in music?
JA: Family. My brother
played music and the whole family was involved in the business. My Dad
played all kinds of musical instruments.
CC: Any notable bands?
JA: Oh no. Not really.
CC: Just local bands?
JA: Yeh. A family of
CC: It was at Charter
Oak High School that you first met Vince Neil after I believe you
transferred to that school. Is that right?
CC: And we are told in
Mötley Crüe’s book The Dirt that you chose Vince to
be in your band because he had the longest hair in school.
JA: He had a good look,
yeh. I’d see him in the hallway. I was looking for a singer to put
together a band ‘cause I had just moved there. It was pretty much, kind
of, a redneck area so there weren’t very many long-haired guys. He had
a certain surfer look to him so… I forget how we actually met first.
Pretty sure we went to a park across the street from school where we
used to all go to smoke our cigarettes and hang out, and he showed me
some cheap guitar. Somebody introduced us I think. I can’t remember
exactly how it happened.
JA: But I asked him if
he sang and he said, “Yeh.” He had sung in a band called… what was it?
Black Diamond I think it might have been. At the time I thought he was
just bullshitting me. I thought he was lying. So then we got together
at my friend's house in Hacienda Heights, where the bass player I
was working with Danny, lived. We brought a drummer Robert Stokes in to
play and I could just tell he hadn’t done much singing.
CC: Sure. So was Joe
Marks in the band at this stage?
JA: No. Joe wasn’t in
the band. Joe didn’t play bass until way after that. He was like a
roadie at first.
CC: Right OK.
JA: Actually that first
bass player’s name when we first jammed was a guy from my other High
School; a guy named Danny Manjee. He didn’t work out for whatever
reason. He really wasn’t into it. And then I got another bass player by
the name Greg Meeder. He was like the first actual Rockandi bass
player. We went through bass players like there was no tomorrow.
CC: A bit like Spinal
JA: [laughs] Yeh at
least on bass players.
CC: Exactly. So you
hooked up with Vince and he came down and had a sing and you could tell
that he hadn’t sung too much. What happened from there?
JA: I could tell he
could keep a tune fairly decently so I said we were working on a
situation to put a band together with these other guys.
CC: And you were
planning on playing just covers at that stage?
JA: Oh yeh. I had a
plan. The plan was too play at backyard parties and take it from there.
But the first plan was to… A couple of years before that there was
another band that was quite big in the area and had done quite well and
actually I was friends with one of the guys and acquainted with
another, and they did really well playing backyard parties. There was
nobody doing that. Nobody was playing the right material any more and I
had a good idea what to play; what material to play that the people
that were going to backyard parties would want to hear.
CC: Sure. I understand
you put together a few songs for your first concert at a local prom
which were Want You To Want Me by Cheap Trick, Aerosmith’s Sweet
Emotion and Smokin’ In The Boys Room.
JA: Um… A prom?
CC: Yeh. I think that’s
what it said in The Dirt. It was a local prom
that was your actual first concert.
CC: I know it’s going a
long way back.
JA: Actually our first
gig was in a living room... at Vince’s backyard; at his parents’ house.
That’s in the book isn’t it?
CC: Yeh OK. So that’s
the classic story where Vince organised this party at his house on a
JA: Yeh and his parents
were there and…
CC: While his parents
were away. Then they came back and his Dad started dancing with a
blonde on the dance floor while his Mum started serving some drinks.
JA: Oh they knew we were
going to have a party. I’m pretty sure of it. Otherwise I wouldn’t have
gone for it. I was a kind of goody two shoes. [laughs]
CC: Yeh OK. So that was
your actual first show?
JA: Well, yeh. I really
think so. I remember an early gig we played at the high school as a
lunch time thing. We did a few high school dances. I don’t remember
doing a prom, like where people were dressed up. I could be wrong but
that just doesn’t really ring a bell. Mostly what we did was backyard
parties because we were so young we weren’t old enough to play a bar.
CC: Sure. So how long
did you actually play with Vince before he left for Mötley? It must
have been a couple of years at least?
JA: We probably started
playing together in… probably ’79 would be my guess. The spring of ’79.
CC: Well Vince’s son
Neil was born in October ’78.
JA: ’78? Are you sure
JA: I would have guessed
CC: No, Neil was
definitely born in ’78. I interviewed him for
this site and that’s what he told me.
JA: How funny. I’m a
year off then. It must have been the spring of ’78 then. Yeah. Spring
of ’78 makes more sense! That’s right ‘cause I would’ve turned 18 in
February. I wasn’t sure because I know I went through part of the
school year… It was like my senior year and I transferred to the new
school so it was kind of stupid. But the school I came from was like a
bad scene. [laughs]
CC: What school was that?
JA: It was a place
High in East L.A; lots of Hispanic gangs. It was an unhappy
place for a little white boy.
CC: OK. So you formed in
’78 and you built up a bit of a reputation playing at these parties.
JA: Oh yeh, quite a bit.
We packed ‘em in. It was pretty crazy. We would go and make flyers and
give them to kids. We had access to printing at the high school and we
would just print out all these… I wish I had some because they were
like these really intricate drawings. You know all the Ritchie
JA: It was similar to
that kind of stuff and that’s kind of how that Rockandi logo came
about. Kids… they’d do flyers. They made the stuff. Print them up and
Vince and I would wander around... We’d cut out at lunch time and take
them to all the other surrounding high schools and just plaster them on
cars. It worked out really well.
JA: So these parties
would just be packed.
CC: Yeh sure. I can
JA: The people were all
be happy ‘cause they’d have a couple of kegs. The kegs were always
running out. Charge a buck at the door. It kind of ending up being,
where somebody would come to us and want to have the party. They just
wanted to have the party and didn’t want to take care of the door. We’d
put our own person at the door. We’d just take the door [money].
CC: There’s quite a
widely bootlegged five song demo of Rock Candy, apparently from 1979 [Song titles: She’s Cold,
I Really Want To Dance With You, Lets Get Rockin’ Tonight, My Girl
Waiting For Me, American Kid]. I recently sent you a
copy of it and you had a big laugh. I’m just wondering if you can tell
the Crüe fans the scoop on this.
JA: I’m very, very
sorry. That’s not Vince singing; that’s me. [laughs]
CC: [laughing] And after
all these years people have thought it was Vince.
JA: You know what? I
never heard about it until… it was you who told me you could download
it off Napster or something.
JA: This demo was
done in a garage studio in La Verne, California with my brother who
engineered it. There was probably only three or four cassettes
made after the mix down and I'm amazed how it's made its way around the
world. Very embarrassing!
JA: That’s the funniest
thing in the world because… damn! Yeh it must’ve been ’79 because there
was two versions of Rockandi. There was a version that just played like
the backyard parties and the band kind of split up and then I got
together… At this time, this is where Joe [Marks] entered you
know? He was like a friend. He wanted to learn how to play bass and I
was kind of a shy guy and never met people easily. So I knew Joe and I
liked Joe. He was a funny guy. So him and Robert Stokes and I got
together and wrote the songs. I would write songs and just work them
out with these guys. I was kind of an inexperienced song writer. We
wrote them actually in Joe’s garage or over my house or whatever, and
then we did this tape. We played some parties without Vince and stuff.
You know I was at the same time, off and on, messing around with this
other guy and we kind of got hooked up with this teen scene. We put
together this teen band.
JA: We were getting to
go to some cool parties. But there was a lot of weird stuff going on.
Vince comes back into the scene… I’m not sure exactly…
CC: So Vince left the
band for a while?
JA: Well he and I just
split up because we had a difference of opinion. Not a fight, nothing
like that. It was kind of almost like a break.
CC: Yeh OK.
JA: He had this
girlfriend or something. He was just… To be honest it was probably more
me than him.
JA: We had a hard time
keeping bass players. Every bass player quit ‘cause they didn’t think
he was a strong enough singer.
CC: OK. [laughs]
JA: Then there was like,
all that New Wave stuff was coming in and I just thought maybe we
should be doing more stuff like that, but Vince didn’t want to. So I
was writing songs that I wasn’t sure he could sing you know… a lot of
weird little stuff. So I was just writing new songs and playing some
gigs with these other guys, and I got involved with these other guys.
Then that band kind of fell apart then I was playing with these other
guys. It was a teen band with all this teen stuff and TV stars and
shit. So I thought I could like get my foot in the door. It was out of
boredom ‘cause I didn’t really have much creative input on that, that
we started getting together with Vince again with Joe playing bass and
Robert playing drums and playing some of the songs that Joe, Robert and
I had put together. We wrote some more stuff and that was that. That
was the Rockandi band that played The Starwood.
CC: Right. And that’s
the line-up that’s actually on that demo tape but with you singing
instead of Vince right?.
JA: With me singing yeh.
It’s basically the Rockandi band without Vin.
CC: Now Rockandi is
actually not spelt as in the two words Rock and Candy.
JA: No it was [spells
CC: Yeh, which is
something that will come as a bit of a surprise to people again.
JA: We had long
discussions about that, Vince and I did, thinking it’d be kind of cool
to spell it different.
CC: So how did you come
up with the name, apart from the change of spelling?
JA: From the song.
JA: The Montrose song.
CC: Excellent. Did you
actually do that song?
JA: Yes, sometimes open
our set with it. It’s a cool song. I recently downloaded it off the
net. [laughs] I hadn’t heard it in a long time. Hagar’s singing on
there, Sammy Hagar. It’s bad [as in good]. Ronnie Montrose is a great
CC: LA Guns do a pretty
good cover of it as well.
JA: Oh really?
JA: That period, all
those LA bands; I didn’t listen to any of them. I was off doing
something else and a lot of them were just crappy.
CC: Sure. OK. So Vince comes back
to the band and that’s when you start getting bigger and playing the
circuit more and playing The Starwood yeh?
JA: It was like, the
backyard party band… that band was really, really popular. When we came
back together and played the originals it wasn’t the same thing. We
were playing clubs. I was just goofing off ‘cause I was doing this
other thing, is basically what it was. I was getting to be able to
stretch my writing ‘cause I wasn’t getting the writing in that I
would’ve liked to with the other thing.
JA: Too many chefs know
you? The other guys had like big connections and it was kind of like
just sitting on the sidelines with my foot in the door of something,
but I don’t know what the hell it was. [laughs] We actually had our
picture in a teen magazine, Super Teen.
CC: OK. Vince ended up
leaving Rockandi. Apparently you were meant to play a party somewhere
but your guitarist; you and bass player didn’t show up which left Vince
in the lurch. Vince gave you a call and you had said that you had cut
your hair short and you wanted to become more of a new wave act…
JA: [laughs] That was in
JA: I have no
recollection of that whatsoever.
JA: The whole thing went
down… it was through this whole period while I was doing this teen
trip, and then I was also playing with Vince, Robert and Joe. We were
writing and playing these cool gigs. So basically I was doing this
other trip which I thought would at least get me in the business. The
other [Rockandi] gigs were for fun and parties. We’d play gigs all
drunk and they were like a lot of fun. I was writing the songs. I was
doing everything right; it was like, my band but I was doing this other
crap on the side. Vince and his girlfriend were always trying to get me
to be more committed to this thing so he’d always say, “What do you
think?” and I’d say, “Oh you know, it’s cool but I’m doing this other
JA: So he was a little
upset with me that I wouldn’t say the words. Actually I was doing as
much as anyone else in the band. I was still doing it. But then the
Crüe thing came up and I remember him going, “Hey, these guys are going
to pay me money man. Like a $150 bucks a week.” So I go, [laughs]
“Buddy! Any time you can make money in this business… they’re goin’ to
pay you to rehearse and play gigs? $150 bucks a week?” You know,
playing original stuff… I told him to go do it.
CC: Yeh OK. Excellent.
JA: He was kind of pissed
off I think ‘cause he wanted to do our trip. I think he did. He wanted
me to tell him not to go, is what I thought. But I told him to go
because I really thought that was… I was doing my trip and I thought
that’d be good for him, to make some money you know? Geez.
CC: Yeh well it was at
that stage he was with his girlfriend Leah?
CC: Yeh, who was
nicknamed Lovey. What was she like?
JA: Oh Leah. Poor Leah.
Poor soul. She’s passed away recently. She was murdered. Knife to her…
probably a drug deal. She was a space cadet. Good heart. Drug addict.
Parents had money.
CC: Vince was working
with her Dad at one stage there.
JA: Yeh. Graham Electric
I think it was called. Wiring houses. Construction.
CC: So after Vince left
to go and join Mötley what happened to Rockandi then?
JA: Well, nothing, just
kind of… He and Leah were taking care of all the business end; they
were booking all the gigs so that was kind of like the end of it. There
was really nothing else. That was basically the end of that and I went
off doing my other trip ‘cause that’s where I thought the smart money
CC: Sure. Well a landmark
gig of Mötley Crüe’s was the New Year’s Evil show at the Santa Monica
Civic Auditorium at the end of 1982 and I believe you were in the band
that opened the show that night called The Wigglers?
JA: [laughs] Yep.
CC: Can you tell me a bit
about The Wigglers and what you recall of that night?
JA: That was a great
night actually! I really enjoyed that. We’d still kept in touch with
Vince off and on. Joe did. Joe and I still would talk to him
occasionally. Matter of fact, I remember when the band [Mötley] got
signed that same week I was at a gas station,
USA Gas on
in Glendora area where we lived and I was getting gas. He pulled up to
me in his car with some chick and goes, “Hey. We just got signed!” It
was like a shock. I go, “Really? Congratulations.” [laughs] But anyways
back to New Year’s Evil… we talked. We still talked off and on and he
came down and wanted to know if we wanted to open up this show.
JA: Said, “Heck yeah!”
Santa Monica Civic in front of… How many does that place hold? Four or
five thousand people?
CC: Something like that.
Nine thousand I've heard.
JA: Nine thousand? I
thought it was only 4500 or something. It was sold out whatever.
JA: So I said, “Yeh sure”
and I knew their sound guy and it was going to be cool. I thought we
were going to get a soundcheck when we got there but there was no
soundcheck. We just walked on this big stage. [laughs] We didn’t get
CC: Was that the biggest
audience you’d played in front of?
JA: Oh shit yeah. That
was like… that was pretty wild. That was awesome. That was a wild gig
‘cause like, the people were shocked, and they were making all kinds of
noise. A lot of the people really were upset that we were there, but
some people enjoyed the show. See The Wigglers band was like… when I
first heard Green Day… it was a little bit like Green Day and… Spin
Doctors. More of that kind of… Apparently it was a little ahead of its
time. A little kind of punky, but rock, but pop you know. I’d be
singing in punk rock vocals but we had guitar solos so we weren’t like
total punk rock. Punky pop rock, but aggressive. It was wild. Joe and
Robert played… basically we were like Rockandi with another guitar
player; a guy named Jay Lansford who now plays in a band in Germany. He’s been in
Germany the last 15/20 years; a band called Gigantor. He’s been in
Germany for a long time, but he came into the band and played guitar.
CC: So what have been
doing over the years since then, since The Wigglers?
JA: I had a solo project.
Trying to beat the doors down of the record companies, you know?
CC: [laughs] Yeah.
JA: Various bites. The
Wigglers were actually signed to an independent label called Posh Boy
Records who were at that time were one of the big L.A. punk rock labels.
They were trying to stretch out into more mainstream things. That all
fell through due to the various financial backers. Then a solo artist…
What else? The last original thing I did was that Saint
thing, more like a R&B dance-type trip to be honest. I had some
JA: I had a production
company deal with friends. We put together a nice little demo that
created semi-interest but never a full on deal. So now I play in a
cover band. [laughs] We're called "Film at Eleven and the Late Breakin'
CC: Yeh OK.
JA: More money than I
ever made in a band. [laughs]
CC: Well it’s often the
way isn’t it?
JA: Unfortunately playing
people’s weddings and corporate events.
CC: And when was the last
time you caught up with Vince?
JA: Oh when he left the
band the first time. Was that ’96?
JA: No, no, no. Left the
CC: Or kicked out.
JA: What, was that ’96?
CC: No ’92. It was just
after the Decade Of Decadence album which came out in ’91. It was
February of ’92.
JA: That was ’92?
CC: Yep. Exposed, his
first solo album came out in ’93.
JA: Oh my God was it that
CC: Then he was back in
the Crüe for the American Music Awards in January ’97.
JA: Is he still in the
band? I heard a rumour that he was out again.
CC: Well he’s actually
doing some solo shows at the moment.
JA: Yeh he did a solo
show locally here. I was going to go see it but I didn’t make it out.
CC: Well he’s got some
summer dates coming up, so you can always keep up with the latest on
what’s coming up with Vince and the rest of the Mötley guys in the Dates section at my site but he’s just about to
head out on a summer tour; on the Rock Never Stops Tour with Tesla,
JA: All the bands from
that era? As a solo project?
CC: That’s it.
JA: [laughs] Well it
keeps him busy. So the Crüe’s not doing anything? Apparently their
drummer just died.
CC: Yes Randy
passed away. They had a memorial for him last night; a concert at The
Key Club which apparently went off. Tommy Lee has got his new album
coming out in May and he’s got a summer tour happening as well. So
Nikki’s hoping to get the band back together for one final world tour
with the original line-up to say farewell but time will tell.
JA: So how’s Tommy gonna
do that then?
CC: Well he’s got to get
his solo stuff done first. He’s got to tour behind this and the plan is
to get him back to do this farewell tour. So we’ll see how it all pans
out I guess.
JA: How bizarre!
CC: What are your
on Mötley and the success that they’ve achieved over the years? Were
you a fan of the band?
JA: Oh no, not really. I
really wasn’t… We were all shocked when they were signed and they were
taking off ‘cause the band, when we first saw them play together, they
were horrid. You know, they didn’t play well together and didn’t have
any shining musicians. In the San Gabriel Valley where
we grew up, there were some just amazing players. I mean, we’re talking
world class players. You’re talking the area that Eddie Van Halen came
from. There’s guys from that era that were as good, or almost as good,
that never… you’ll never hear of. Not to mention Randy Rhoads who was
amazing, amazing guitar player. I remember hearing Rhodes play at the Wood
Sound where Rockandi used to play, a small local club, and him
warming up. [laughs] Just shock! The guy was just a monster. So this is
an era where you had like really awesome singers. Especially at the
time when all these crazy tenor singers were singing. It was kind of
shocking. So you know, we didn’t really think too deep; we didn’t get
it, but the crowds and people were kind of into that trip. They had the
look and that attitude. It was just time for that I think.
JA: I really didn’t think
they wrote any great songs until I heard the Dr. Feelgood album and I
go, “That’s really good!” I remember Vince brought over Shout At The
Devil and I just thought it was like a typical type rock tune. He came
by my house to show it to me and I don’t even know which album that was
on, but comes driving up and goes, “Man, you wanna hear our new album?”
This is their second album?
CC: Correct. Second album.
JA: And he played it and
I was like, you know, “That’s cool” and I was thinking, “Gosh. That’s
kind of weak.” [laughs] I mean, I wasn’t doing that kind of music at
the time and… well what do I know? The sound production was good. It
sounded good but I wouldn’t have paid for it. But when they released
Dr. Feelgood I thought it was good. I thought it was real good. I was
impressed actually. That’s a great song.
JA: I thought Girls,
Girls, Girls was funny too. I thought that was kind of funny. That was
a fun little tune. To be honest with you there might be other songs
that I like too but I never really listened to them. It’s not like he
gave me free records or anything you know? [laughs]
CC: Sure. Cool.
JA: But I never asked so.
CC: Ah exactly. Yeh it’s
just one of those things. So much happens over the years, it’s pretty
hard to keep in touch with your old buddies.
JA: Yeh I just got so
busy on this trip. There’s always something going on. I went to his
house after he had got kicked out, to write; to write with him. We got
together to write. That must have been ’92.
CC: ’92 it would have
JA: Because it must have
been right after my first daughter was born… No it can’t have been ’92.
Are you sure about that? I was thinking it was like ’96 because our
daughters were about the same age. Oh maybe it was. Maybe they had just
been born ‘cause I remember making jokes with him about... I go, “Did
you get fat when your wife was pregnant too?” He goes, “Yeh, still
trying to get rid of it” and we were like laughing how about how you
get fat when your wife is pregnant. [laughing]
CC: Yeh OK. It would’ve
JA: He was living in
Chatsworth in a gated community up there. So I went up there… Nice
sized house and stuff. I just remember being impressed by all the cars.
He had Ferraris. Four of them stacked up with those little lifts. One
on top and one on bottom.
CC: Awesome. Far out.
JA: That’s what I
would’ve expected of Vince though because he was always into cars.
CC: What were your
thoughts on The Dirt? You’ve
read a copy of it?
JA: I didn’t read it all.
I just kind of like glanced through it. My wife made me buy it of it
‘cause there’s a picture of me in it. [laughs]
CC: Page 58.
JA: Yeh. I kind of like
glanced through, but I have it.
CC: It’s an interesting
read. I recommend you have a sit down and have a read.
JA: There’s some parts
that I thought were kind of like… like where Vince mentioned about the
backyard parties and like calling the cops… Some of that stuff was
exaggerated a little bit.
CC: OK. [laughs]
JA: But I would’ve
expected that. I don’t think that ever really happened. It may have
happened once because we played this party; Rockandi played this party
down on a street called
Puente in Covina and it was just
insane. There were so many people there that all the fences in the
backyard on all sides of the fence, like three fences, were flattened
‘cause there were too many people.
JA: People had fallen
through the roof on the garage which was in the back part of the house,
and people had broken into some of the houses next door and so it was
just like… This party was over and there was like thirty sheriff cars
lined up and they were pissed.
JA: You know it was like
the beginning of the end of backyard parties in
Covina ‘cause I remember thinking, “You guys were mad.” There were
parties we played after where the cops beat up people. I remember
Robert got taken to jail one night. I remember the cops just came up to
us on the back porch where we were playing and threatened to stuff our
equipment in the trunk of their squad cars. It was like, “We were just
hired.” Pretty scary suckers.
CC: OK. Wow. Well, that’s
pretty much all I wanted to cover I think James, unless you've got
any other cool stories that you’d like to share with the fans?
JA: No. There’s so many
weird little things that come to mind. I can’t think of anything else
CC: That’s cool. I know
JA: I always think about
them afterwards. Like when I did the VH1 thing [a show being produced
called Driven] I was like, “Oh we never even talked about this” but
they have their own little agenda they wanted to come across you know.
That’s what scared me after I left. I was like, you know what, I may
look like a big asshole on this thing.
CC: Right OK. Depending
on how they chop it all up?
JA: Depending on how they
cut it they can take stuff out of context and I was thinking, “Maybe I
shouldn’t have done this” ‘cause I was kind of tossing around not
agreeing to do it as I was a little worried about… not that anyone’s
ever going to know me or see me again but, you know, I have kids!
CC: Sure. How many kids
have you got?
JA: Two. Two beautiful
little girls. God’s little dirty trick [still laughing]
CC: Excellent. Alright
JA: Have you been to the
CC: No, not yet.
JA: You’ve never been to
CC: I’ve never seen
Mötley Crüe perform live.
CC: [laughs] Yeh!
JA: No way!
CC: Yep. They came to
here once and my wife was pregnant at the time, but I was still thin,
and we couldn’t make it. I’ve never been off this big island mate.
JA: That is bizarre. I’ve
seen them a few times. [laughs]
CC: OK. Whereabouts? What
years were they?
JA: Where did I see them?
CC: Yeh. In the early
days was it?
JA: I saw them play at
Pookies. I saw them at The Whisky on a couple of occasions. I heard
them play at the New Year’s Evil. Most of the times I saw them play
they weren’t very good. I saw them play one time at The Whisky A Go-Go;
they were amazing. I remember thinking the band played real well
together and the crowd was theirs. It was kind of around the time they
got signed. A lot of energy… David Lee Roth was there that night and
the band played well. They did an amazing job. It was like, “OK I can
see that now” as I’d seen them other times and I was wondering,
“Yikes!” They had a hard time getting the bugs out. But you know, with
all the stuff, you get all this stuff going on inside your head and you
kind of pull it off.
JA: I remember at the New
