Unhappy December 8, 1984

On this date in 1984, while making a beer run, Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil caused a high-speed multiple-car collision in Los Angeles which not only killed his passenger, drummer for Finnish glam band Hanoi Rocks Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, but seriously injured passengers of two other vehicles. The tragic event not only broke up Hanoi Rocks as they were making serious headway into popularity in America, but gave Neil a jail sentence of only several months--after which time he was released due to "good behavior" and on the condition he perform community service and make an anti-drug video. The reverse of the sentence was widely criticized as being too lenient for a rock star convicted of vehicular homicide.
