Original Faster Pussycat member Brent Muscat of Sin City Sinners to be joined by Taime Downe at upcoming Toy drive show in Las Vegas

On December 18th, original Faster Pussycat members Taime Downe and Brent Muscat will reunite to perform several of the band's classic songs with Brent's current group, Las Vegas mainstay Sin City Sinners. The show will take place at Vinyl (inside the Hard Rock Hotel) in Las Vegas.

It's all for Sin City Sinners' annual toy drive, with all guests being asked to bring a new and unwrapped toy to be collected for Toys 4 Tots to make sure a less fortunate child has a present for Christmas. The two-day event, dubbed "48 Hours Of Sin", will also feature appearances by Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns,  Robert Mason of Warrant, Frank Dimino of Angel, Oz Fox of Stryper and more.

Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster or the Hard Rock Hotel box office. The first 100 people will have the option to purchase a two-day pass for just $9.23.

Sin City Sinners are Todd Kerns (Slash), Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat), Rob Cournoyer (Raging Slab) and Zach Throne (The Heights). In 2010 Sin City Sinners released two CDs of original music, 'Exile On Fremont Street' and 'Broken Record', and in 2011 won the prestigous 'Best In Vegas' readers poll from The Las Vegas Review Journal.  On November 25th, 2011, The Sinners released their thrid album 'A Sinners Christmas' which included guest appearances by George Lynch, Ron Keel, Slim Jim Phantom, Jizzy Pearl, Pete Loran, Louie Merlino, Frank Dimino and Sammy Serious.

Taime Downe performed with Brent Muscat and Sin City Sinners back in November of 2011 at King's Room at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx talk leaving Motley Crue after Las Vegas residency?

Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx talk leaving Motley Crue after Las Vegas residency?

Vince Neil apparently is seriously considering leaving Motley Crue. Why, I don't know...maybe to sell more tickets to the upcoming Vegas residency at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel from February 3th-19th?

Neil recently told the Las Vegas Sun, “This is all about me thinking about the second half of my life, thinking about my future, and that future might not include Motley Crue after Vegas. There are so many opportunities that are in front of me that I’m really excited about. I just don’t want to look back later in life and regret that I didn’t pursue them.”

He added, “I’m just not sure I can give these opportunities the time and effort I’ll need to and continue with the band. It’s been a great ride, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it, but being out here relaxing in this beautiful place has given me the chance to reflect on what direction I want the rest of my life to take. I’m really giving it a lot of thought.”

Bassist Nikki Sixx told Rolling Stone "This is the beginning of what will be the biggest probably four to five years of the band’s career," he says. "We’re negotiating with a couple of other extremely huge bands on doing a co-headline tour, something that’s never happened before. There's new music in the future.

"The other thing to look at is the wheels are in motion for getting the Motley Crue movie made now," Sixx says. "We finally got everything in order the way it needs to be done, and that’s gonna happen. We have sort of an agreement with a production company, directors, etc, to right now just keep it amongst ourselves," he says. "So once we have everything really together, we’re gonna let everybody know. But trust me, when I say the wheels are in motion they’re definitely in motion."

Nikki is speculating that the time may be coming for the band to wrap things up as well. "The band sat down and had a powwow as brothers and friends and guys who’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and we said, 'When is it time?'" Sixx says. "We’ve always said since we were kids we didn’t want to hobble in to the sunset. So after the movie, at some point – whether it’s within a year or a few years – we’re probably gonna have that conversation about maybe it’s time, maybe it’s time to go out on top."

Sixx has an idea of how he wants the band to retire "If I’m watching my favorite boxer and he’s just won the heavyweight championship of the world and he retires it kind of makes the guy a legend," he says. "I always respected Led Zeppelin, and I’d rather Motley Crue be thought of as that type of band rather than a band that’s just going through the motions."

For the moment though Sixx says everybody in the band is very focused. "We’re a hundred percent engaged," he says. "We’re sounding better than we’ve ever sounded musically."

If and when when the end does come, Sixx can look back on a very successful run. "We’re really proud of what we’ve done, whether critics like us or not, whether we’ve won Grammys or not, whether any of that stuff," he says. "We’re proud that we did it on our own terms."

“For us, it’s about trying to find the right time to end it correctly. We’ve had that talk as a band and even in the last year or so we’ve spoken that at some time we’re going to want to wrap this up. I feel really proud of the band but we are taking steps to finish the movie and when we do we’ll look at that time. When the movie comes out, it’ll be time to finish on a high note, on a positive, and not like we’re breaking up.”
