The guys from Motley Crue have spent the last couple of years hinting that retirement is on the horizon, and bass guitarist Nikki Sixx recently went so far as to say the band would be hanging it up after one more album and tour. But you know how long rock retirements tend to last -- and it looks like Sixx might be leaving himself some room for renegotiation.
All things considered, the last decade has been one of the more stable and harmonious stretches of Motley Crue's career -- which, ironically, might be part of why multiple members have been giving so much thought to laying the group to rest.
There will soon be a new Mrs. Sixx as Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has announced he and girlfriend Courtney Bingham plan to marry. The two have been dating since November 2010; it's the third marriage for Sixx after unions to Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt and actress Donna D'Errico.
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx spent a year tirelessly logging the highs and lows of life as a drug-addled rockstar in his 2007 biography 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.' Now the bassist says that year will be recreated on Broadway.
It's one of the defining hits of the power ballad era and a standout in the Motley Crue catalog, but according to Nikki Sixx, the band had to fight just to release 'Home Sweet Home' on an album -- and if it hadn't been for MTV, it might never have become the lighter-waving favorite we all remember today.
With Motley Crue's summer-long tour with fellow rock titans Kiss wrapping up, we caught up with the band's bassist, songwriter, author, fashion designer, photographer, radio host and all-around renaissance man, Nikki Sixx.
Only yesterday, Vince Neil was telling the media that the Motley Crue’s upcoming Vegas romp might be the start of their farewell. Now today, word comes in from bassist Nikki Sixx that, though a farewell may be in the cards at some point, it might be a long goodbye.
A final album and one last big tour are standard moves for a band mapping out an acrimony-free farewell.
Those appear to be part of Motley Crue‘s agenda over the next few years — but something much more definitive-sounding is a feature film based on the group’s best-selling autobiography, ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.’ And while Nikki Sixx claims he’s not at liberty to discuss the project at the present time, the Crue bassist has actually been very chatty lately about the forthcoming movie.
