Motley Crue is taking steps toward a 2004 tour with all of its original members, the first time the group has done so since 1999. If it happens, the trek will be tied into the theatrical release of "The Dirt," based on the notoriously hard-partying band's 2001 autobiography.

Bassist Nikki Sixx acknowledged the potential obstacles to reuniting in a post this fall on the band's official Web site. "I speak to [drummer] Tommy [Lee], [guitarist] Mick [Mars] and [vocalist] Vince [Neil] quite often, but I know Vince has some resentments that need to be ironed out," he admitted.

"But if everybody wants to do a Crue tour, I'm there," he continued. "At this point for me, a Motley Crue tour is not about the money. I'd really like to go out and give one last kick a** tour where everybody including the band walk away with a smile on their face."

This month, Hip-O/Universal released the four-CD Crue boxed set "Music to Crash Your Car To, Vol. 1," featuring every track from the band's first four albums. Sixx has also signed a deal with Sanctuary for the March release of the debut album from his new band, Brides Of Destruction, which includes former L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns, drummer Scot Coogan and vocalist London LeGrand.
