It’s the end of the world as we know it
It wouldn’t be an exaggerated claim to say that Mötley Crüe has for better or worse been one of the most influential/successful rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. That’s why we bring you the word straight from the horse’s mouth that Mötley Crüe are soon to be no more. According to sources at TheMusic.com.au an interview with Nikki Sixx, has revealed in detail, Mötley Crüe’s plans to go out with a bang.
Nikki Sixx, Mötley Crüe’s infamous bass player stated “I wanna finish our movie [The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band] and put out a new album,” Nikki brought up mention of a soundtrack in the works and “a farewell tour”. “We’ll be back in Australia and, ah, that’ll be it, I can honourably say, We did it our way and we’re never coming back.”
Nikki was extremely adamant about the band’s future spilt and farewell tour. He accentuated that the split will mark the end of the band’s 30 year career permanently and he has no interest in any sort of reunion later down the line. This will be the final nail in the coffin for Mötley Crüe.
Not gonna beat a dead horse
Nikki Sixx continued “It’s important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse’s head, and it goes down, it’s not a plastic bullet it’s a fucking shotgun blast.” The bassist continued to describe in graphic detail the execution of the four-legged farm-yard animal before saying, “It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, it’s IT. I will cry. I cry thinking about it.” He expressed.
For more than 30 years, the hell hounds of Mötley Crüe have been creating musical chaos for their millions of fans around the globe, many of whom will certainly be saddened by the news of the final curtain coming to a close on such an illustrious career for these musical giants. In 2004 the original Mötley Crüe line-up reunited after a long line of line-up changes and an age of turbulence among the band members, upon announcing the Carnival Of Sins reunion tour in December of the same year.
Since then, the band released their ninth album [Saints Of Los Angeles] in 2008, backed by relentless touring including and their current co-headline tour with glam rock legends KISS.
There will be no sequel
Mr. Sixx went on to describe his feelings “So it’s very emotional and I just think it’s important that we finish what we started and then, you know, it will be whatever it will be. It could be beautiful. It could be a beautiful ending! [Like] When you go and see a great movie.”
Nikki concluded with the analogy “I’ll leave you with this: when you go and see a great fucking movie and it ends and you go, ‘Fuck!’ like, you walk out and you go, ‘That was amazing! That blew my mind!’ It’s not like, ‘That blew my mind and, um, maybe there’ll be a sequel to it’.”
So will this finally be it for the almighty Mötley Crüe? It seems that it is the case. Nikki at least seems to believe so. Who are we to argue with him? So our advise to any Mötley Crüe fans out there, if you haven’t seen them live, take this chance to do it, because it’s the last chance you’re ever going get. I can imagine that those tickets are going sell like hot cakes during a famine.
