Motley Crue To Call “It A Day” After Next Album
Motely Crue bassist and key song writer Nikki Sixx sat down with an Australian music site TheMusic before their date with Kiss earlier this week.
The interviewer brought the eventual end of the band and if they would ever do the usual “reunion tour” down the road, to which Nikki Sixx replied: “It’s important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse’s head, and it goes down, it’s not a plastic bullet it’s a f**king shotgun blast. You know, blow its f**king brains out, it’s never coming back. It has to [be that way]. It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, it’s IT. I will cry. I cry thinking about it.”
He continued: “”So it’s very emotional and I just think it’s important that we finish what we started and then, you know, it will be whatever it will be. It could be beautiful. It could be a beautiful ending! When you go and see a great movie – I’ll leave you with this: when you go and see a great f**king movie and it ends and you go, ‘F**k!’ like, you walk out and you go, ‘That was amazing! That blew my mind!’ It’s not like, ‘That blew my mind and, um, maybe there’ll be a sequel to it’.”
Before all that, Sixx says he wants to finish up with the movie adaption of their NY Times bestselling autobiography “The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” along with putting out a new album to go along with the release. Per the album, Sixx told Loudwire ”We’ve been writing. I know Mick [Mars] has told me he has a ton of riffs and it’s just a matter of now collecting riffs. For a while, it was only writing segments of music and getting together and collaborating but now I’m starting to finish music more like I used to more — like I used to in the old days — and finish it top to bottom. So I look forward to getting in the room with my band.”
Motley Crue will be making a pit stop this spring in our area with a May 23rd show at the Turning Rock Casino in Verona.
