The Motley Crue Beatdown: I always loved Motley Crue for their sleazy glam rockers, huge live show, and of course their ability to create drama in every city they visited. The drama continues 2 decades later. Gerald Schneeman is suing promoter Live Nation for damages after he was beaten up by an unidentified member of Motley Crue during a concert at the Ford Amphitheater on November 22. According to legal papers Schneeman was standing in front of the stage when he was struck in the head with a guitar by the Motley Crue member – who was not named in the suit. The musician is then said to have jumped down from the stage and knocked Schneeman to the ground, at which point security intervened and began assaulting the fan, before dragging him out of the venue.
