Elektra Signing

Elektra Signing

Signing a record deal is usually a joyous moment for any band...however, this is Mötley Crüe.

Elektra Chairman Joe Smith sits on his desk, surrounded by Mötley Crüe, Elektra A&R exec Tom Zutaut (seated in the striped shirt), former manager Alan Coffman (standing in the suit), and an unnamed lawyer (standing far right), all present for the band's major label signing, Los Angeles, May 20, 1982.

Afterward, they went to Benihana on La Cienega and got the cops called on them.
