Legendary guitar player and a song composer from the highly influential Finnish rock band Hanoi Rocks, Andy McCoy, is annoyed about the scene in the Mötley Crüe movie The Dirt.
Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley died in December of 1984 when Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil drove his car while under the influence of alcohol. Andy says in a Finnish newspaper Iltalehti that the movie and the reality don’t match in the scene before the tragic accident occurred.
In The Dirt movie there is a big rock and roll party in a huge mansion in California, but Andy says that in reality the home of Vince Neil was only a two room apartment at the Redondo Beach. According to Andy there was only present Razzle, Andy himself, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and passed out Hanoi Rocks bass player Sami Yaffa. And also, a pregnant wife of Vince.
Then Vince and Razzle jumped in a car and sadly Razzle lost his life in a serious accident.
– I was there. I was the last person who saw Razzle alive, except Vince. I said to him “Hi, see you later”. In this story people don’t remember that there were also other people (in the other car) who got injured, Andy says in Iltalehti.
In the other car two young people were seriously injured for the rest of their lives. One of the best Finnish bands ever broke up soon after the accident. Last week the guys from Hanoi Rocks got back together for a brief moment in a Microsoft Teams-discussion when Hanoi Rocks was awarded a Life Achievement Award in Finland. That was a historic moment when four members of Hanoi Rocks Michael Monroe, Andy McCoy, Sami Yaffa and Nasty Suicide chatted together.
– I played at the Tavastia club in Helsinki in a year 1994. Our drummer was Jimmy Clark, but otherwise four guys from the band was back together for the first time then. Andy jammed with us that night. After that we haven’t talk together all four of us, Michael Monroe said to Iltalehti.
Hanoi Rocks is much loved band in Finland and when they split up after Razzle’s tragic destiny, it was a giant blow for the Finnish music fans. Now rumors are flying that the original members consider comeback to stages.
– I would say that no, says singer Michael Monroe.
– I want to highlight that we are not putting the band back together, he said to Iltalehti.
There has been rumors that the relationship between Michael and Andy has been bad, but that nowadays they are friends again.
– We haven’t had any kind of relationship in the last 10 years, Monroe said to Iltalehti.
– We are like brothers from the different parents with Michael. I have heard some UFO-stories about us, but there is no problem, Andy said.
Hanoi Rocks was one of the main influences for the Guns N’ Roses and many of other rock bands in the early 1980’s.
Andy and Michael are still going strong. Michael Monroe is performing and recording with his successful band and Andy has gained some recognition as a painter and his latest solo album 21st Century Rocks was highly acclaimed in Finland.
