Nikki Sixx Says Brides of Destruction Can Go On Without Him

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has clarified his current status in BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION and has commented on the recent war of words with his BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION bandmate Tracii Guns, who publicly referred to the new CRÜE single as "shit."

In an online posting, Sixx said, "In thinking back on my great times with Mr. Guns and gang, I have nothing but fond memories... Basically, we kicked major ass together... so now we try to kick each other's ass... Ah… the simple life… just like green acres (from hell)… so let me put it to you in a nutshell.

"I'm proud of the band. I want them to go on and kill the world. I respect Tracii as a player. We have a friendship carved in flesh with razorblades. (sometimes painful and very human)

"Yes, I'm disappointed at him for airing his opinion in public with such venom when he knows how important this is to me and the guys. I put my heart and soul into the new crue....so there I said it....disappointed in a friend… Got it??

"As far as heart and soul, I put it into the BRIDES too... I used every connection of mine for the band (got us a record deal, merch deal and world tour on my name), pulled favors and funded it myself.

"So do I believe in it?? Fuck yes. Or I wouldn't have done that for us. Do I believe they can go on without me?? Hell yes.....and trust me when I say it will rock.

"Am I gonna do the CRÜE the next 12 months??

"Fuck yes…

"What's after that??

"Who the fuck knows..

"Cross that bridge when we get there..."

You can all f*** OFF!

The BOD album kicked ass. Granted Motley aren't as big as they were back in the day but they have unfinished business over her in the UK and I can't wait for the tour. Sounds like you three are from the "ooh life's so depressing and i hate my parents hate myself cos i'm a f***in loser, slipknot, nirvana fans" school of rock. Lifes a drag cos of the sh**e you listen to - PARTY TUNES RULE! And as for the last wanker to post a Nikki tirade - i'm a young fan and i love crue/maiden/jovi/leppard/ac-dc/aerosmith/kiss. f*** YOU ALL. LONG LIVE NIKKI AND THE MIGHTY CRUE!

i agree with jonr slipknots f***ing gay and sh** i love all the 80's music and if it werent for motley crue,poison.gnr,van halen,and a lot of other sh** out there u wouldnt have your precious slipknot and korn bullsh**.lets face it 80's rock n roll will always live on as we speak and we all know that there more fans of 80's than there is of all this new crap.just remember something im only 15 years old and i dont like all this slipknot bullsh** just imagine how many other teenagers are like me i know im not the only motley crue fan and i know that for a fact because theres so many dudes at my school that want to go to the concert.80's is still alive and this is how i know too because when we all heard that motley crue was back together and were touring,it was big news that they were touring now tell me this was it big news when slipknot toured just not long ago.it was big to the true fans but was it all over the news like it was motley crue no it wasnt thats because 80's is still alive u f***ing moron slipknot p***y fans im tired of hearing about how heavy they are if u want to hear real f***ing metal listen to some cannibal corpse or morbid angel or even sadistic intent.you know what,im also tired of hearing about how slipknots death metal if u think there such death metal read their lyrics do they talk about killing humans? no they dont if you think slipknots death metal go to deathmetal.com and look to see if their listed because they arent.if anyone says that the site doesnt list all the death metal bands out there,your correct they dont because they only list the most popular death metal bands and dont forget something slipknots is very popular so u cant say that they arent listed because they arent popular we all know why they arent listed because they arent death metal. but anyways u slipknot fans out there dont want to hear me diss on them and make them look totally bad so im gunna end this conversation right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
