Nikki Sixx Shares One Of The Worst Betrayals He Experienced
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx shared a post on his official Twitter page reacting to the auction of his handwritten lyrics of ‘Too Fast For Love.’ Apparently, those pages were stolen from the musician by his bass tech, which was one of the worst betrayals in Sixx’s life.
As many of you know, Mötley Crüe released its debut studio album, ‘Too Fast For Love‘ on November 10, 1981. The album reached No. 77 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the United States and received favorable reviews from music critics.
Since it’s the first record of one of the most influential bands in rock music, everything about the 1981 album has value for the band’s fans. Anything involved in the making of the record is collectible, especially for enthusiastic Mötley Crüe fans.
That’s why Nikki Sixx’s handwritten lyrics of ‘Too Fast For Love,’ which is also signed by the band members, are up for an auction. This important piece of Mötley Crüe’s music career is worth $10,625, and dozens of fans are dying to get their hands on it.
Recently, a fan who saw the auction shared a tweet mentioning the Mötley Crüe bassist, saying he must purchase the item if he wants to hand it down to his children. On the bright side, it must have been exciting to see numerous fans wishing to pay thousands of dollars for his work after all these years.
After seeing his handwritten lyrics in the auction, Nikki Sixx shared a post on Twitter, revealing that his original bass tech stole those lyrics from him. The musician continued his words by saying it was one of the worst betrayals he has ever experienced since those lyrics belong to his family.
In his tweet, Sixx penned:
“These were stolen from me by my original bass tech. One of the worst betrayals I’ve experienced. These belong to my family.”
