To Motley Crue. Yep, you heard me. The state of Alabama has chosen to appropriate $600,000 of the $65 million that BP shelled out after the Gulf oil spill to pay Motley Crue to headline the Bay Fest earlier this month.
While this sounds like an incredibly stupid idea, it's actually designed to drum up tourism for the beaten down Gulf area. Not too bad, actually. I wonder if BP was listed as an official sponsor.
