Don’t hold out for the possibility of a new Motley Crue album
There have been some rumors of Motley Crue possibly doing more recording at some point, even though the band technically played its final show last New Year’s Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Well, don’t believe the chatter, because according to Motley Crue bass player Nikki Sixx, the group has no plans to do anything going forward.
“Nothing,” Sixx said in a new interview with Team Rock where he was asked about whether Motley Crue has a future. He added, “No chance of another record. I want to just leave it intact. I see no reason. We couldn’t be creative as a band, so how the hell can we continue? But I’m glad the way it finished — we did it all, we did what we said we were going to do, and now I’m excited about the future.”
Sixx, though, is still nostalgic about the legendary ‘80s hair metal band. He has positive feelings towards the group. “It doesn’t mean I don’t love the band, it just means that I’ve already said my goodbyes,” he said.
“The last thing we wanna do is live off old glories,” Sixx added. “For me, the carcass of Motley Crüe is dead. It’s lying in the field, the flesh is rotting and I don’t wanna feed off that. I invite Motley Crüe fans in to Sixx:A.M. but I’m not gonna poach them. Our new fans, they know about Motley, but it’s not their band, and that’s okay.”
In other news, Sixx is centering his life around his other band, Sixx: A.M. The group already released two studio albums this year, and they’re gearing up for live shows in 2017. Check out the band’s upcoming tour dates here.
