Talk of the day (George Lazenby, Crystal Viper, Mötley Crue)

GEORGE LAZENBY

Spotted a drama documentary about George Lazenby (the guy that originally replaced Sean Connery in the James Bond franchise) called “Becoming Bond” and I just had to see that. Turned out to be a fantastic movie, one of these feel good things that you just take to your heart immediatly. George is giving an interview about his life on camera and then they shot a movie of sorts on top of that, so what you get is chapters of his life. The James Bond bit is hilarious, but the man did walk out on an offer that few would have denied (an additional six movies and a shitload of cash). So what we have left is his one shot at Bond, “On Her Majesty´s Secret Service” (1969). And not only was it a huge success back in the day, but it still stands as one of the best in the series. The guy did Bond very well. You will love this if you are anything like me (hey, Jane Seymour is in it!).

CRYSTAL VIPER

Polish Heavy Metal outfit Crystal Viper has put out a new video for a song called “Still Alive”. They have a new album in the pipeline.

MÖTLEY CRUE

There will be a 30th Anniversary edition of Mötley Crue´s “Dr Feelgood” coming out in late November. Several versions, including one hell of a box. No sign of a DVD release of “The Dirt” though. I know it was a Netflix thing, but it would be criminal not to let the fans buy this film.
