Nikki Sixx Responds To Musicians Who Slag Mötley Crüe Off
Nikki Sixx recently posted a tweet addressing the artists who target Mötley Crüe while trying to promote a project and insinuated that they use his and the band’s name for publicity.
Mötley Crüe has been in a feud with various music acts throughout their career. In most of these cases, it’s Nikki Sixx who steps up and comes forward with a response on his social media accounts. The bassist even wrote an open letter to Metallica, responding to their accusations that the Crüe used a backing tape during a show.
On the other hand, there is also bad blood between Nikki Sixx and the former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi. The bassist made controversial remarks on Corabi’s contributions to the band. Then, Corabi harshly criticized Sixx’s ‘Heroin Diaries,’ saying heroin addicts don’t carry a diary around, and the book is colored like the Crüe biopic ‘The Dirt.’
Although John Corabi argued that he was beyond past this, it seems this isn’t the case with Sixx. In a recent interview with Chuck Shute, Corabi stated that his son was battling heroin addiction, so he asked Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee for advice. However, neither responded to help him. In the same interview, the musician also recalled when he took so-called revenge on the band.
After Corabi’s recent statements made the headlines, Nikki Sixx took to his Twitter account to post an intriguing tweet. The bassist stated that the artists who started slamming Mötley Crüe often tried to promote themselves using Sixx’s or Crüe’s name. Although Sixx didn’t share any names in the tweet, his fans thought his remarks might be a response to John Corabi’s recent statements.
Nikki Sixx’s tweet read:
“Whenever other musicians start to slag us, I usually look them up and realize they are in the middle of trying to sell a book, music, tour, or something to you using my or our name. Things that make you go ‘hmm’!”
