Dr. Feelgood (stylized as D℞. FEELGOOD) is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, released on September 1, 1989. Dr. Feelgood topped the Billboard 200 chart (which is the band’s only album to claim this position as of 2020), and was the first album Mötley Crüe recorded after their quest for sobriety and rehabilitation in 1989. In addition to being Mötley Crüe’s best selling album, it is highly regarded by music critics and fans as the band’s best studio album. This was also the band’s last album to be recorded with lead singer Vince Neil until the 1997 album Generation Swine.
This collection of unique memorabilia comes from the executive producer of the Los Angeles Music Awards and the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards, Al Bowman. The L.A. Music Awards lasted from 1991 until 2015, exactly 25 years. It was the first awards show of it’s kind anywhere in the world, because it brought recognition and publicity to independent artists and bands. Unlike the Grammy’s or Billboard Music Awards, which recognize established artists for their commercial successes, the Los Angeles Music Awards presented accolades for production quality, lyrical content, song writing abilities and overall music quality. Its production model has been duplicated in hundreds of major cities around the world. In 1997, it’s 7th year, the production began to involve celebrity participants, both as presenters and recipients. Many came from the film and television industries. In 1998, the Los Angeles Music Awards began tying it with various charitable causes and established silent auctions to help raise funds for those causes. Donations of memorabilia were solicited from famous artists, producers, film makers and other movers and shakers from the entertainment industry.
In 1999, famed music producer Phil Spector donated many items from his own personal collection that spawned many others from the both the film and music industries to do the same. Over the next 15 years, many items that went unsold from the silent auctions were held onto buy Al Bowman, after he first offered them back to their original donators. In 2007, the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards were founded. F.A.M.E. was an acronym for a celebration of Film, Art, Music and Entertainment. In 2010, Al joined forces with the creator of the Los Angeles Comedy Awards as co-executive producer and for the next 4 years brought to life the L.A. Comedy Awards.
Part of this collection includes Al’s own original L.A. Music Awards plaques and trophies, similar to the ones presented to many celebrities and other famous award recipients and participants over the 25 years when these award shows were in full production. Each of them commemorate the successful production that occurred in those years.
