Nikki Sixx Hopes He Doesn’t Have To Do Vocals

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx posted a recent tweet as a response to a fan in which he revealed that he hopes not to do vocals as the lead singer.

Nikki Sixx had sung lead vocals for Mötley Crüe’s 1997 album ‘Generation Swine.’ This album marked the return of the band’s lead singer Vince Neil, but even with Neil back in the band, Crüe experimented with new things. To fans’ surprise, the album featured Sixx’s lead vocals on the song ‘Rocketship’ and on parts of ‘Find Myself.’

As you probably know, Vince Neil recently had an accident on stage and unfortunately broke his ribs. Although he is now healthy enough to continue singing, as seen in his first show after the incident, some fans still doubt his vocal capabilities. This is mainly due to Neil’s previous performances which had turned into a disaster.

Recently, Nikki Sixx conducted a Q&A on his Twitter account and responded to some fans’ questions. One of his fans asked Sixx whether he is willing to record a song as the lead singer in the future. Considering Vince Neil’s health issues and singing problems, the question’s main subject was probably Neil.

Upon seeing this question, Nikki Sixx posted a tweet in which he simply said he hopes he doesn’t have to do that. So, although he had taken up this duty in the past, it seems like Sixx is not really eager to sing vocals for the band in the foreseeable future.

The fan’s question in the tweet was:

“Will you record a song as a lead singer in the near future?”

Nikki Sixx responded to this question as:

I hope not.
