Sixx Has Offered His Own Take on the Crüe Drama
In a new interview with Guitar World, Nikki Sixx has offered his own take on the recent drama surrounding Mötley Crüe.
The band’s longtime guitarist, Mick Mars, announced his retirement in 2022 due to health reasons.
However, the situation quickly turned sour when Mars accused the band of trying to “take away my legacy” and said he never wants to speak to his former bandmates again.
Sixx has now responded to Mars’ claims, saying that he was “blindsided” by his decision to leave the band. “We never saw it coming that Mick wasn’t going to be able to tour and was going to have to quit the band,” Sixx said. “We were all very disappointed, but we respected his decision.”
Sixx also denied Mars’ claims that the band was trying to “take away his legacy.” “That’s not true at all,” Sixx said. “We all love Mick and we want him to be happy. We just want to be able to continue to tour and make music.”
The situation between Mars and Mötley Crüe remains unresolved. However, Sixx’s comments suggest that the band is not going to back down from their decision to move on with John 5 as their new guitarist.
It remains to be seen how the drama will play out in the long run. However, one thing is for sure: the Mötley Crüe story is far from over.
Sixx says that Mötley Crüe is excited to get back on the road with John 5 in tow. “We’re ready to rock,” he says. “We’re going to give the fans the show they deserve.”
In addition to his comments about Mars, Sixx also spoke about the band’s upcoming tour with Def Leppard and Poison. “We’re all really excited to get back on the road,” Sixx said. “It’s going to be a great tour.”
In the meantime, Mötley Crüe has continued to tour with John 5 on guitar. The band has also released a new album, “Saints of Los Angeles,” which features Mars on guitar on a few tracks.
It remains to be seen whether Mötley Crüe will ever be able to fully reconcile with Mick Mars. However, Sixx’s comments in Guitar World suggest that the band is still hopeful that a resolution can be found.
The Mötley Crüe/Def Leppard/Poison tour kicks off on June 23, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour will make stops in all major cities across the United States.
The Mötley Crüe tour with John 5 is set to kick off in September 2023.
