Nikki Sixx Names The Place That Makes Him Feel Not Like A Rock Star But Just A Kid
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently spoke to Smashing Interviews Magazine to detail how he spent his time during the COVID-19 outbreak since all concerts and events were canceled. Sixx unveiled that he found a place that he feels like a creative kid.
As you may know, a short time after Sixx broke up with tattoo artist Kat Von D, he was seen with Courtney Bingham at the Call of Duty: Black Ops launch party. The couple tied the knot on March 15, 2014, and they had a daughter named Ruby Sixx on July 27, 2019. Before they decided to have a baby, the couple wanted to plan the band’s tour schedule and where they were going to live.
Sixx revealed that when he talked with parents in Los Angeles, who had bought bulletproof bags for their children to survive during a possible mass shooting at school, the bassist and his wife were sure that they needed to move out of Los Angeles to raise their child in a safer place. Actually, they wanted to leave the city after Mötley Crüe’ Stadium tour, but later the shows were rescheduled to 2022.
Therefore, COVID-19 allowed the Sixx family to try living in different places such as Nashville, Montana, and Idaho. However, the perfect place for them was Wyoming, and Sixx defined it as a place that made him feel like a child who wanted to chase his dreams and create new things rather than only being a famous rock star.
In Sixx’s words, he said:
“What happened in Wyoming was that I started to feel more settled. I started to feel more like not an entertainer but just a creator, a creative person, not a rock star but just a kid with a dream.”
Apparently, Nikki Sixx was able to focus on writing his new memoir entitled ‘The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx‘ while he was living in Wyoming. His book was released on October 19, 2021, and has started receiving positive reviews from readers.
