Fashion e Fashion industry boom isjust waiting to happen in North East lndia- North East is unexplored territory when it comes to fashion. But with a ever-growing interest in the weaves of the region as well as sprouting of a localbreed of designers and models, North East is the next stop for fashion inspiration. The Wills lndia Fashion Week (WlFvV) in Delhi was testimoni

to

the focus on North East where in an attempt to promote fashion of the region, the Textiles Ministry joined hands with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) to organise a show dedicated to designs from

the seven sisters. Designer Atsu Sekhose. who was chosen for the show gravitated towards the tribes of North East as the chief inspiration for the collection. With his roots in Nagaland, he presented a colledion that was representative of the North Eastern culture. The event also saw work by 29-year-old designerJenjum cadi, who hails from Arunachal Pradesh. A relatively new breed of designers are working overtime to shift their energies and concentrate towards the North East. Elements of the region's vibrant culture had been mildly incorporated in collections earlier, but with young and enthusiastic minds from the region stepping into mainstream fashion. the focus on North East is definitely more than ever before. .

Manipur: Naga Turf Battles VERor{rca

N MAY

18,2013,

IN A FIRST

incident ofa clash between the Zeliangrong United Front (ZUF) and the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) outside the Tamenglong District of Manipur, an

NSCN-IM cadre identified

as

Pousingdai Gonmei was shot dead by ZUF militants at Lushai Chiru near the Thongjaorok River under the State's Senapati Distdct. A press communiqu6 issued by information Secretary of the ZUF, A. Dangmei claimed that Pousingdai Gonmei, Kapur (area administrator) ofZeilad Region of Duithanjang Khoupum in Tamenglong District, was 'arrested' in 2011 for leading the NSCN-IM cadres in the first gun battle at Khoupum. After stem waming, he was released as he was a Zaliangrong. The ZUF went on to say that he was also among the cadres involved in the incident which led to the ambush at Soubunglong (Leishok) village in 201l. It also alleged that the deceased was found collecting 'tax' in the Zeliangrong regron. On March 5, 201l, in a fust

clash since the creation ofZUF on February 25, 2011, a ZUF cadre was killed by NSCN-IM cadres near Khoupum Khunou village in Tamenglong District. Again, on October 7, 201l, six cadres ofthe NSCN-IM were killed and five injured during an ambush by ZUF cadres at Leishok village in the Nungba Sub-division of Tamenglong District. About 60 NSCNIM cadres were uavelling to the village in two trucks, when they came under attack. The ZUF had termed the

SUn lruNE 30,2013

October 7 clash a 'sad incident' caused by the intrusion of'outsiders' (NSCNJM): "It is natural for us to protect our land and we are doing it with our own volition." ZUF has argued that NSCN-IM only imposes its 'military rule' in the Zeliangrong region, while there are many Naga aieas that are untouched by the latter outfit. A combined force ofZUF and the Kiaplang faction ofthe NSCN

were killed in a six hours factional fight between ZIIF and NSCII-IM near the Gadai Hills in Tamenglong Distdct headquarteN.

(NSCN-K) has been involved in several of these confrontations with the NSCNIM. Within this context, on April l, 2013, David Loveson Panmei,'Public Relations Officer' ofthe NSCN-K, was shot dead by suspected cadres of the NSCN-IM on the Aziunm Road in Tarnenglong

September 25, 2012: A fierce guo battle between ZUF ard NSCN-IM cadres erupted in the evening of September 25, and continued through the night into September 26, leaving six dead and injuring one civilian. The identities of the decaased and the injured could not be confirmed. The incident was sparked off inside a forest near Wairangba village in the iDte-

District. In 2012, according to South Asia Terrodsm Portal (SATP), a total of nine incidents of factional clashes had been reported betweoo tho thrce

Naga outfits in Tamenglong District. Four incidents ofsuch clashes had been recorded in 201l. Prominert among the 2012 incidents v/ere: October 30, 2012: Five militants (thire NSCNJM and two ZUF cadres)

Zeliangrong Tiger Force (ZTF), were formed with the proclaimed objective of protecting the interests of the Zeliangrong tribe, and celebrated their second raising day on February 25,2013. Addressing the gathering, 'commander in chief Jenchui Kamei read out the message endorsed by its'chairman', Kamson, expressing 'appreciation' for the support and co-operation given by the 'public' of the region to the ZUF. Kamei reiterated, further, that ZUF had not arrived at any agreement with the Government of India (GoI) or Government of Manipur. The ZUF has grown significantly in almost every aspect, including numerical strength and area expansion, since its inception.

militant grcups that took place in the remote Haochong village, located about 68 kilometres North ofNungba Police Station, in Tamenglong District at about 2.30 am. The dead included two civilians, three cadres ofNSCN-K and one ofthe ZUF. The incident occurred when NSCN-K and ZUF cadres were camping together at Haochong, and were suddenly

attacked by an NSCN-IM contingent. Hours afier the gunfight at Haochong, a 'sergeant major' ofthe NSCNIM,

identified as Athikho, was killed at Tamenglong Bazar, reportedly by the NSCN-K, in a revenge attack for the Haochong killings.

The ZUF was created when

around l0 NSCN-IM cadres deserted the group along with

of the Zeliangrong people. Earlier, on NoveDber 7,2011, the ZUF had argued that Zeliangrong lands (in

Assam, Manipur and Nagaland) were shrinking day by day because ofencroachments by the Dimasas in the Dima Hasao area of Assamj by the Sâ&#x201A;Źmas in the Itangki forest in Nagaland; and as a result ofthe tense situation in Manipur over the creation of the Sadar Hills District. The chairman further asse.ted that the ZUF would work to ensure the unity and integrity of the Zeliangrong People, and to continue and complete the unhnished task

recruited ZUF cadres at Tengnoupal in Chandel District, while they were being taken from Imphal for training in Myanmar. The ZUF also has strong differences with the United Naga Council (UNC). UNC is one ofthe frontal Naga organizations which strongly supports the ongoing negotiations between NSCN-IM and GoI and campaigns for an

left behind by Haipou Jadonang and Rani Gaidinliu, who rebelled against Bdtish Imperialism in the early 2Oth Century. In 1964, Rani Gaidinliu demanded "a separate Zeliangrong

Administrative Unit or Political Unit" wirhin the Union oflndia. Naga National Council (NNC) leadels, then in revolt against the Indian Union, considered Gaidinliu's actions an obstacle to the Naga independent struggle. In another development, ZUF had convened its general assembly on February 20, 2013 at the 'council headquarters' and designated Benjamin Pamei as the

ZUF's

'home secretary'; Himsil Kamei as the 'extemal affai secretary'; and Dinhiam Kamei as the 'finance secrctary'

,

The NSCN-IM was furious at the formation of ZUF and, on June l l, 2012, alleged that the Assam Rifles (AR) was creating conflict among the Nagas in Tamenglong District. In a statâ&#x201A;Źment, the outfit alleged that the birth of ZUF was the result ofdirect manipulation by Government agencies, including Tamenglong-based politicians and the AR. On June 12,2012, reacting to this charge, the ZUF described the NSCN-IM as "anti-people and dreaded elements ofthe Nagas".

ZUF cadres. The AR, meanwhile, strongly refuted the NSCN-lM claims. Strong opposition to the NSCN-

IM has also arisen from other militant formations in the region. On July 5,2012, a day after the ZUF's accusation that NSCN-IM was practicing'anti-Naga' policies, the Manipur Naga Revolutionary Front (MNRF), another Naga out-

fit in Manipur, formed in 2008, alleged that there was a problem wherevef the NSCN-IM was present. Further, on Augtst 23, 2012, Ihe

NSCN-Khole-Kitovi, an NSCN-K splinter group formed on June 7, 201l, had alleged that the activities ofgroups such as NSCN-IM, ZUF and NSCN-K continued to work to the detriment ofpeace in the Zeliangrong areas. Before the emergence ofZUF,

factional clashes amongst Naga formations in Tamenglong Distdct had involved NSCN-IM and NSCN-K.

At least one incident was recorded in 2005; five in 2006; and three each in 2007 and 2008. No such incidents were on record in 2009 and 2010. The Secudty Forces (SFs), meanwhile, have also had violent encounters with the ZUF. Six such incidents have already been recorded in 2013 - resulting in two ZUF fatalities.

alternative administrative alfangement for the Nagas in Manipur. On December 25, 2012, ZUF had appealed to the UNC to review its decision of going ahead with its planned 72-houi bandh (shut down strike). The UNC had called the bandh to protest against "attacks on Nagas" following the incident at Chandel Distict on December 18, 2012, when NSCN-IM 'lieutenant colonel', Livingstone allegedly

molested Manipui film Actress Momoko and threatened two other artistes and also fired from his gun during a musical concert. The ZUF argued the civil society organisations in the Valley (Imphal) should uphold the slogan 'Chingtam-

Amatani' (Hill-Valley are one people). The ZUF also said the UNC did not carry the voice of the whole Naga people. Fratricidal confrontations have long been witnessed bâ&#x201A;Źtween Naga factions in Nagaland, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and, beyond India's frontiers in Myanmar. The Tamenglong Distdct in Manipur has now ernerged as a hotbed ofclashes between NSCN-K, ZUF and NSCNIM, creating new challenges for the convoluted peace processes in the regron.

Contrary to all out effods for preservation ofthe rare brow-antlered deer locally known as Sangai, locals in the periphery ofthe endangered deer species' natural habitat relying on chemicals to clear unwanted water plants is said to be the latest threat posed to the survival ofthe State animal. According to Chief Wildlife Warden Th lbobi, who is also Loktak Development Authority's Proj€ct Director, the local population, particularly the fishing community, have staxted to use chemical substances to cleax the floating bio-masses (phumdis) to develop/maintain lishing zones in Kumbi pat (lake), which lie adjacent to Keibul Larrjao National Paxk the only natural habitat ofthe Sangais. The Wildlife warden said that use ofchemicals to clear phumdis fiom Kumbi pat stated this yeax. Highlighting that the locals using chemical substance pose grcat threat to animals living on the national park due to side effects ofthe toxic conterts, Ibobi cautioned that not only would usage of such substaDce endanger the animal species but the safety and health ofthe human population depending or the 236.21 squarc kM Loktak lake cannot be guaranteed. ExplaiDing that water, aquatic plants, fishes and insects are integral and essential components ofthe Loktak Lake's

bio-divenity, he remarked that any disturbance caused to the fragile environment is bound to have serious impact on all species that depend on the Lake for survival.

Engineering Education Making the Right Choice ,l N tNDTvtDUAL wHo wANTs ro IEdrrr d rtPuLdurc Purrrrvrl tt Ir -^^-L lrn hrs career nas Io cnoose right academics at right time. Everyone, whether it is an aspiring engineering student or just a college going candidate is having their own dreams to pursue a professional course in a prestigious engineering college with an exDected branch. There are more than 2500 engineering colleges which offer a variety of engineering branches in India. There are some basic factors which are to be considered while choosing an engineering college, which will obviously lead you to a good college to complete your graduation in Engineering. These are a set of parameters which are universal and need to be strong in order to attract students for engineering colleges. The parameters which are laid here are basic parameters for the engineering colleges and also serve as a parameter for students to decide their college for a better future. Before ioininq in

a particular college or selecting a prepared branch students and parents should concentrate on the

t

following points. The most important point is to check whether the college was

approved by AICTE and accredited by NBA of AICTE. AICTE

continuously strives to maintain the quality technical education in the country. NBA of AICTE aims to maintain level of some of the programs offered in technical institutions on par with program offered in institutions across UsA and Europe. EXPERIENCED FACULTY: The faculty members must be well qualified and experienced with good domain knowledge and teaching experience and should be helpful to the students whenever they approach them. An Engineering college or any college is known by the faculty and is largely dependent on the faculty for making good

stand topics which may be easy or hard. The faculty of a college is a basic parameter which plays a deciding factor as to whether the college will produce a good result or bad one CURRICULUM: The next big fac-

tor which is of importance is the curriculum followed in the college. The faculty and students of a college are of no use if the curriculum followed is not technically sound and updated according to the modern li{e. An old curriculum may result in the students lagging behind the fast paced and fast changing world of technology. Therefore, it is important that the curriculum followed in the college is up to date and technically sound in terms of the latest technology and research. ALUMNI: The alumni of an engineering college are the best reflection of the institution's image. The alumni from the college and the position at which they are in the present world will also serve you to understand the

institution's qroominq methods .and how'they -'- are used by the alumni for becoming successfgl in life. The alumni have

1


FEATURE an essential parameter of late for choosing engineering colleges with more and more colleges depicting success stories of their students in order to attract studenls. COLLEGE INFRASTRUCTURE: A

college with good buildings with well furnished and fully ventilated class rooms, clean and green

and calm environment, spacious laboratories, library and good sports complex etc. which helps the student to improve dedication and concentration on studies are also important criterion. All the labs in the college should be well equipped with good conditioned equipment as per the university curriculum and for research purpose,

LIBRARY: Library is the main source to improve the knowledge of the students at the engineering level. Candidates have to learn a lot on their own. This will be possible if the library contains sufficient number of text books, reference books, journals and ma9azrnes. COLLEGE LOCATION: The engineering students have to face exams of various types frequently.

Apart from college time, the student has to select free time in a day to complete other academic works. He should spend at least seven to eight hours in a day on writing the notes, record work and reading the books. lt advisable to stay very near to the College to save valuable time. It is always better to stay in the hostel if it is located in the college is

premrses.

PLACEMENTS: After four years of hard work in an engineering course, ultimately many of the students expect jobs in good companies or prepare to go for higher

education. Previous Dlacement records and the interest of college managements in improving them are important factors. The quality of placements offered is evaluated by the quality of company in which the students are placed and the type of salary package they command. The olacements also are essential as to whether or not the whole batch has been placed. A lot of engineering colleges are now-a-days offering 100% placement citing that alt of their students are getting placed with reputed companies. Placements have become an essential parameter for determining the college, as most students now want a safe and good job right after their

graduation.

lNDUtIw - College interaction: Colleges arranging training pro-

grammes in good relevant industries to get hands on experience is

another important factor. This will give an edge over other students. Arranging industrial tours for final and ore final students will be an added advantage. ENVIRONMENT: The friendly atmosphere among students and measures to maintain discipline

by college management will give positive results in academics.

College should encourage competitive spirit among students to attempt exams like GATE, GRE. CAT, lES, Public Sectors Exams etc. CURRICULAR AND CO CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: Priority should be given to sports and entertainment by forming

-

the clubs to conduct different activities. Students should be motivated to participate in various extracurricular activities. REPUTATION: The last means to check for an engineering college is its reputation on local, state and national terms. Colleges rank according to all the parameters stated above. Those colieges ranking high are usually the good ones and are advisable to try and get into one of those. Check the rankings of the institute, its reputation, the position of students of the college in inter college comoetitions, check latest news reports on the college, exchange programs with foreign universities, etc. finding such things will help you to judge an institute. Engineering! This term is such which chanoed our lives forever.

SPECIAL

In the last century alone, many

great engineering achievements became so commonplace that we now take them mostly for granted. We can travel the.globe with relative ease, and bring goods and services wherever they are needed. Growing computer and communications technologies are opening up vast stores of knowledge and entertainment. All these activities that have happened in the past and are happening in the present have always made engineering the first preference of students. There is a lot of scope in engineering and the career prospects are huge. All fields in the modern economy have been invigorated by engineering technology. In recent years, the privatq sector has been developing at a fast rate. Public sector as well as infrastructure activi-

ties are being opened to the private sector for investment. In the years to come, private sector employment of engineers will expand further and, due to

disinvestment and privatizations, employment currently in the government controlled sector

will also shift, at least partially, to the orivate sector. Engineering, without doubt one of the few most sort after career options all along. Engineering as a field comprises of umpteen iob opportunities. It is one of the most in demand qualification and the highest paying career in both the government and private sectors. An Engineer can opt for a job out of the threâ&#x201A;Ź ' available sectors; Technical, Non-technical and the Software industry. Career opportunities range from jobs in Public Sector Units (PSU) to the prestigious Indian Engineering services (lEs)

offering tremendous growth and a stable career in research and development, teaching and in esteemed private institutions. The Indian Engineering Services further offer careeE in the most

Central Engineering Services,

Telecommunication Department, Central Water Services etc. There are also lucrativejob offers after a post engineering degrees in various sectors such as the civil services, State Engineering Services, MBA" Banking sector and the Defence Services. There is truly no dearth of job opportunities for the right candidate. Besides on pursuing a career in Engineering, a candidate gets the dual opportunity of handling challenging technical roles while also playing a prominent role in the develoDment of infrastructure and services for the nation. The icing on the cake is the affluent social status attached with the job. There are myriad opportunities in Public Sector Units too offering a perfed blend of a highly professional office environment and a stable career.

It sounded gorgeous coming offthe tip of the tongue." Del Rey has stylized her musical sound as "Hollywood sadcore."

In "National Anthem", "Off to the Races," and "Diet Mountain Dew", Del Rey employs this altemative rapping techniqu€. Under the stage name Lizzy Grant, she called her music "Hawaiian glam metal", while the work of her May Jailer project was acoustic. Attributed to many genrcs,

Del Rey's sound has been primarily linked to indie pop, a sub-genre of alternative rcck. Despite this, she has experimented with hip hop and trip hop genres.

Regarding wardrobe, Del Rey has appeared numerous times in PR photoshoots and music videos adorned in gauzy dresses and floral headdresses; she has been recognized as being less flashy than other mainstream female pop singers. Lyrically, "Bom to Die" was recognized as sad. On the subject, De1 Rey said: "I'm not sad, I'm happy. I feel like I'm happy because I'm at peace with the way that things are... I did have a darker filte! on sometimes, but that slowty lifted through

doing a lot ofdifferent things. And finding true love is something that

really did inspire me, lyrically. Because so much

I felt so much the same for ofmy life and then when

you find someone exciting, you don't know that you could actually feel differently than you did before.I was inspired. "Del Rey writes her own lyrics, drawing on various experiences she had while living in New York

City, and she has said that her lyrics, "sound like stories." Noah Levy, senior news editor at In Touch Weekly magazine, noted that her dedication and talent is undeniable, quoted as saying "I think she cares about the art that she

is creating. I don't think that is fake at all." Amongst her musical influenc€s, Del Rey cites several contemporary artists such as Elvis Presley, Antony and th€ Johnsons, Frank Sinatra, and Eminem. "[I really] just like the masters of every genr€", she told BBC radio presenter Jo whiley. Her favorite artists include Bob Dylan, Frank Sinaha, JeffBuckley and Leonard Cohen. She covered Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel #2" in 2013. Jatris Joplin's live v€rsion of

"Summertime" from the Cheap Thrills compilation album is one

ofDel Rey's favorite songs. Del Rey has also cited "Time of the Season" by The Zombies and "Hotel California" by The Eagles as favorites and inspirations. Her favorite films, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, and American Beauty have also inspired her musical style. Inspired by poetry, Del Rey cites walt Whitman and Allen Ginsberg as itrstrumental to her songwriting. Specifically, she enjoys the chapbook "Leaves of Grass" by Whitman and a poem called "Howl" by Ginsberg. Her song, "Body Electric" from her third EP, Paradise, alludes to Whitman in the lyric, "Whitman is my daddy." The song's chorus of "I sing the body electric" is a direct reference to his poem "I Sing The Body Electric." She recited Whitman's poem "Song ofMyself' for the French fashion magazine, L'Officiel

Paris. Before becoming a singer, Del Rey wanted to be a poet. As a child, her father wrote country songs for personal enjoyment, while her mother was interested in singing; the former introduced her to The Beach Boys, while the latter was a fan ofCarly

"Sex Caused Throat Cancer" JCHAEL DOUGLAS HAS CLAIMED

that his throat cancer was caused by performing oral Hollywood star

sex on women. The

made the ftank admission in an inter-

view with The Guardian, revealing that

initially thought the disease was brought on by his years ofsmoking and he

drinking.

However, the 68-year-old actor has since revealed that the particular strain he had suffered with was caused by human pap-

illoma virus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease. When asked ilhe had regretted smoking and drinking in the past.

Douglas candidly replied:

"No. Because without wantlng to gâ&#x201A;Źt too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus." The Beyond The Candelabra star, who has been married to Welsh actress Catherrne ZetaJones since 2000, was diagnosed with cancer in August 2010 after a walnut-sized tumour was found on

his tongue.

Douglas' health troubles started

just a few months after his eldest son Cameron was jailed for drug possession and dealing. The actor admitted he initially believed his disease had been triggered by the stress over his son's legal troubles.

He said:

"I did worry if the

stress caused by my son's incar-

Payeng started work on the land at the sandbar

in 1979

after a scheme was launched at that time by the social forestry division ofthe district, involving the planting of trees on only 200 hectares. After completion ofthe project after five years, Payeng stayed on and single-handedly looked after the trees. He continued to plant morc seeds and saplings in the forest, which eventually expanded to 550 hectares. The forest has now become so thick that it is now habitat to four tigers, thr€e rhinos and morc than a hundred deer, rabbits and apes. "There are several varieties of bids in the forest and a herd of about I 00 elephants is known to visit the place every year for six months," said Payeng.

Often tagged as the long telm cure for an economy, China's spending on education is many light years ahead ofus. While in 2010, China spedt $12 billion in funding universities alone, India's corresponding budget was limited to

$860 million. In emerging economies, India's literacy rate is one ofthe lowest among the countries with high social spending, like China and Brazil, which are quite a distance ahead

ofus. While India's literacy

rate is pegged at 73 per cent (which too is quite questionably high a figure), China's rate is hovering around 94 per cent and Brazil's at 90 per cent. In healthcare too, India's sordid story continues - Russia spends $ 1043 per capita (5.6 per cent of GDP) in purchasing power parity telms, South Africa spends $930 (9.2 per cent), China $347 (5.1 per cent) while India languishes at $ 124 (4.2 per cent) being at the bottom ofthe table here as well. The increasing gap in India between the affluent and underprivi-

leged is bound to create an undercurrent ofiesentment and deep-down frustration in India's socio-economic paradigm. A soothing effect ofan evenhanded wealth, income and growth spread - a la the benchmark of Infosys can leverage long-term sustainability and accountability of our progress graph. As the vision in Infosys percolated from the top, so should our Prime Minister roll down a humane economic model and breed a culture that isjust and compassionate. A mad rush towards growth, revenue, profits and bottom lines alone is not going to producâ&#x201A;Ź ajust and happy society. It is time enough that our main political parties realize the importance of lndia's social wellbeing alongside its ecolomic advancement. O

then began a search for new memben.

Sixx and Lee soon met guitarist Bob "Mick Mars" Deal. Marc was quickly auditioned and subsequently hired by Sixx and Lee. Although a lead vocalist named O'Dean was auditioned, Lee had known Vince Neil from their high school days at Charter oak High

School in Covina, Califomia and the two had performed in different bands on the garage band circuit. On seeing him perfom with the band Rock Candy at the Starwood in

Hollfvood,

Califomia, Mars suggested they have Neil join the band. At flrst Neil refused the offer, but as the other members of Rock Candy became involved in outside projects, Neil grew anxious to try something else. When Lee made one final appeal to audition, Neil accepted and was hired April l, 1981. The newly formed band did not yet have a name. While trying to find a suitable name, Mars remembered an incident which

occurrâ&#x201A;Źd when he was playing with a band called White Horse, when one of the other band members called the group "a motley looking crew." He had remembered the pbrase and later copied it down as Mottley Cru-. After modirying the spelling slightly, "Mdtley Criie" was evâ&#x201A;Źntually selected as the band's name, with the stylistic decision suggested by Neil to add the two sets of metal umlauts supposedly inspired by the German beer Ldwenbreu, which the members were d nking at the time. The band soon met their first manager, Allan Coffman, '1he thirty-eighf

year-old brother-inJaw of Mick's driver friend Stick". The band's first release was the single "Stick to Guns/Toast

Your ofthe Town", which was

released on thei own record labei, Leathtir Records, which had a pressing & distribution deal with Greenworld Distribution in Torance, Califomia. In

November 1981, their debut album Too Fast for Love was self-produced and released on Leathiir, selling 20,000 copies.

up a tour ofCanada, while Coffman and Greifused Mdtley Criie's success

in the Los Angeles club scene to negotiate with several record labels, eventually signing a recording confiact with Elektra Records in late spring 1982. The debut album was then re-mixed by producer Roy Thomas Baker and rc-rcleased on August 20, 1982, two months after its Canadian wamer Music Group release using the o ginal Leathiir mixes, to coincide with the tour. During the "Cdesing Through Canada Tour'82," there were several widely-publicized incidents. First, the band was araested and then released at

Edmonton Intemational Airport for wearing their spiked stage wardrobe (considered "dangercus weapons")


tkough Customs and forNeil aniving with

a

small carry-on filled with pom

magazines (considered "indecent mate-

al"); both were staged PR stunts. Customs eventually had the confiscated items destroyed.

After playing the US Festival, and with the aid ofthe new medium of

MTV, the band found rapid

success in

the United States. The band members

were as well known for their backstage groupie antics, outrageous clothing, extreme high-heeled boots, heavily applied make-up, and seemingly endless abuse ofalcohol and drugs as for

their recordings. Their mixture of hea\y metal and glam rock stylings produced several best-selling albums during the 1980s, including Shout at the Devil (1983), Theatre ofPain (1985), and cirls, cirls, Girls (1987),

which showcased their love ofmotorcycles, whiskey and strip clubs, and which told tales ofsubstance abuse, sexual escapades, and general decadence. The band members have also had

their share ofscrapes with the law and life. In 1984, Neil was driving home ftom a liquor store in his De Tomaso Pantera when he was in a head-on collision; his passenger, Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, was

killed. Neil, charged with

a

DUI and

vehicular manslaughter! was sentenced to 30 days injail (though he only served 18 days) and received a $2,000,000 fine (a massive sum for 1985), the

shortjail telm was pleaded

for by his lawyers enabling Neil to be able to tour al1d pay the huge fine. The band wouid later release two box sets

entitled "Music to Crash Your Car to". On Decenber 23, 1987, Sixx suffered a near-fatal heroin overdose. He was declared legally dead on the way to the hospital, but the medic, who was a Criie fan, revived Sixx by giving him two shots ofadrenaline to his heart, bringing him back to life. His two min-

utes in death were the inspiration for the song "Kickstart My Heart", which

No. l6 on the Mainstream U.S. chart, and which was featured on the 1989 albun Dr. Feelgood. From 1986 to 1987, Sixx kept a daily diary of his heroin addiction and evenflrally entered rehab in January 1988. In 2006, Sixx published his diaries as a best selling novel: The Heroin Diariesr A Year in the Life ofa Shattered Rock Star, and in 2007 Sixx's side project band peaked at

Sixx:A.M. released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack as a musical parallel to the novel. ln 1988 Mcchee was convicted fbr smuggling 40.000 pounds of marijuana, as punishment he had to organize an

anti-drug campaign. In addition, another controversy that hit the band in 1988 was a law suit made by Matthew Trippe. Trippe claimed that Nikki Sixx was hospitalised in 1983 alier a car crash involving drugs and that he had been hired as

Nikki's doppelganger.

The suit was regarding the loss ofroyalties from his time in Mdtley Criie and the case was not closed until 1993 when Trippe dropped his charges and disappeared from the general public.

Their decadent lifestyles almost shattered the band, until managers

Thaler and Mcchee pulled an intervention, and refused to allow the band to tour in Europe, feaing that "some lof theml would come back in bodybags".

a.'er the band alleged he had broken several promises that he made in rclation to th€ Moscow Music Peace Festival, including giving his other band, Bon Jovi, advantages in terms of slotplacement. Doug Thaler then assumed the role of sole band manager. On October 1, 1991, the band's fust compilation album, Decade of Decadence, was released. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart. It was reportedly designed as "just something for the fans" while th€ band worked on the next "all new" album. After Decade ofDecadence was released, Neil left the band in February I 992, at a time when other bands in the 1980s glam metal scene (Ratt, Strner,

white Lion, Winger, Europe & Britny Fox) also broke up becaus€ ofthe rise in populadty of Grung€. A controversy exists to this day over whether Neil was

fired. N€il was replaced by John Corabi (formerly ofAngora and The Scream). MOtley Cdie's commercial success waned throughout the I 990s, although their self-titled March 1994 release made th€ Billboard top ten (#7). Thaler would manage the band alone until I 994, at which time the band did a mass-f[ing when their album, Mittley Criie, failed to meet commercial expectations. John Combi suggested that the band work with Neil again as he believed he would always be seen as the voice ofthe band, which eventually resulted in his own firing in 1996. On June I I , 2008, the band and manager Burt Stein filed suit against each other. Stein was Vince Neil's personal manager and also, according to the band and rival manager

Allen

Kovac, served as the band's manager at one time. The band and Kovac sued in Los Angeles County Superior Court,

claiming Stein was not entitled to a cut of Mdtley Crtie's eamir-gs. Stein sued the same day in Nashville's federal court, saying he was entitled to 1.875 percent ofwhat the band makes. Other

litigation between the parties also ensued in Nevada. In July 2009, lawyers for both sides announced that the disputes had b€en "amicably resolved" through a "global settlement". In March 2013, Nikki Sixr announced that the band plans to break up for good after their next album and a subsequ€nt farew€ll tour. Sixx has often expressed a desire for the band to end while they're still at what he feels is a high point in their career. Although it is not known for definite whbn the n€xt album will be released, Vinc€ Neil has speculated that the band

will

rclease new music in 2014 and that the

farewell tour could commence in either 2014 or 2015, saying that "Tous last about tlvo years. So to finish the world, you've got to do the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia...it takes some time."
