Open Season: Motley Micah

Mà–TLEY MICAH"I'd just gotten back from Europe and was getting ready to go into real-estate school," says big mountain freeskier and film star Micah Black. "All of a sudden I get this call, and they're like, 'Hey, get down here, ya knucklehead. Come to New Orleans.'" The callers were heavy-metal veterans Mötley Crüe (Black had met them in his prior travels). So the skier packed a bag and headed south, where he and the band chased alligators in swamp boats and generally engaged in rock-star debauchery. All told, the Crüe "kidnapped" Micah for four sold-out April shows in NASCAR country. His only responsibility: "Floating around the crowd to look for cute girls," says Black, who was always equipped with a fistful of backstage passes. "It was the best job of my life." September 2005
