Nikki Sixx Slams Mick Mars Replacement Rumors

Photo of Motley Crue

Band Photo: Motley Crue (?)

Nikki Sixx has posted the following message on the groups web page diary:

"As far as the FCC probe and MÖTLEY CRÜE (On 'Leno'), wouldn't our country be better served if our government put their resources in better places? This is just proof that we are moving backwards. A four-letter word slip-up after midnight is not world news, but considering their ridiculous stance, I will say it reeks of the 1950s.

"Anyway, doesn't Motley Crue usually do the probing?

"About Mick Mars and all the rumors of his replacement? He was the guy whose bone disease had tore him physically down and wore out his hip. He was the one who said 'I'm gonna get this fucking hip replaced,' so you guys better be ready 'cause I wanna go kick ass. We are, he has and the rest, as they say, is history.

"See you CRÜEheads on tour..."

enough with the motley crue posts already! It's obvious this band needs all the publicity it can get. The "crue" are not metal underground worthy. Please, it's embarrasing!

TO ANYONE WHO WAS OLD ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY SEE CRUE IN THIER PRIME IN THE 1980's, THEY WOULD KNOW THAT CRUE'S ROOTS ARE METAL. THEY MAY BE A LITTLE OLDER NOW, BUT THEY CAN STILL ROCK. AND MOTLEY CRUE WOULD NOT BE MOTLET CRUE WITH ANYONE OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS. HIMMM!!!!

the crue were just hair metal that tried 2 wear black and appear darker. nikki sixx is a horrible bass player, and mick mars solos sound like all the other mainstream sh** from the 80's. i also dont get why tommy lee is seen as some drum god. im a guitar player and can play some of his stuff. motley crue just wants publicity so they can get more ticket sales, which equals more $.

this is to the one that said nikki is a bad bassist and etc ... just because you can play someone else's riffs doesn't make YOU better than anyone else, and if you are a guitar player, why isn't your stuff out there for someone to listen to than your 10 year old siblings. oh and about publicity and fame and ticket sales, ISN'T IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY DUDE ? and if you want to go anywhere making money, better keep your mouth shut and practice playing mick mars' riffs, OK !

Their's a lot of crue bashing going on lately . I don't know why atleast 30 % of the band's currently earning a living not to mention 5 to 10 % of the ones becoming wealthy were influenced by crue and probably would not exist if not for VINCE NEAL , TOMMY LEE , NICKI SIXX & MICK MARS . In case you guy's haven't noticed Glam Rock is on a come back unfortunate as it sound's or is it . That's how we got KISS . Anybody that bash's Crue in all likely hood either is'nt old enough to remember or never sat down long enough to listen or simply has entirely to much adrenaline pumping 24/7 . Their's alot of History here . Could they be the next Aerosmith ? They've got the potential the question is can they get over themselves long enough to do it ? Just be careful what you wish for because since band's like DOKKEN & WHITE SNAKE can't seem to get it together for the sake of their fan's who remember them and DEF LEPARD has gotten too f***ING mushy even by their own standard's and don't even get me started on everybodies favorite goofball DAVID LEE ROTH (I'm so ashamed) . Next in line to attempt a come back are POISON , CINDERELLA , WHITE LION and EUROPE . Yes I wan't to kick my own a$$ for saying it . Don't say I didn't warn you . So until the CULT goes back to It's METAL/PUNK root's and stop's their petty bickering long enough to create another great record that is a fan favorite and not just critically acclaimed like the last three . Let's hope Neil & co. can make it happen .

I listen to "nu metal" even though I have been listening to metal since 1975. IF it wasn't for the "old" metal, there would never have been bands like deicide, pig destroyer, cradle of filth, slipknot, mudvayne- whoever you can name- it was all built on "old metal", though I will admit- the hair bands were a huge embarrassment.

But it was a time when record companies didn't want to go dark and heavy. Pu$$y bands like poison, Dokken, slaughter, and yes- Guns and Rosies etc.- were only there for the draw of the dollar NOT for their talent. Crue had a good FIRST two albums, GNR had a great first one, but it still wasn't METAL- and then came the makeup, the dope, and the money- cash flow does wonders!!

I remember a time when I was labled as a satantist because I wore an OzzY t-shirt every other day at my highschool (I wasn't into fashion, I was into music , Randy RIP!)- but alas, he went the hair band avenue during the JAKE years, as did KISS during their disco albums. But none the less, the heavy players like Sab, Priest, and AC/DC were the GODS of the time. Blues influence played a primal part of the sound, but the 'look' was also integral. There is a LOT of darkness in both old blues tunes and jazz- theres a lot of lyrics that refer to murder, lynching, adultery, carnal pleasures, drugs and alcohol, and especially, the devil.

A stage show just isn't a SHOW without some kind of gimmick of SOME kind to occupy the visual aspect of going to a show during the 80's and 90's- and at the time, it was this that drawed the crowd. Hence, the elaborate stage theatrics- explosions, leather, and lots of amps. Iron Maiden (somewhere in time) was such an elaborate show- it was AWESOME!!! But now days- you kiddies are subjected to groups where groups don't pay much attention to gimmick and instead focus on the tunes- which is both GOOD and BAD. I enjoyed a good theatrical show just as I do a group of talented musicians- its even better when the two are blended together. I have heard some of the new metal out there, and frankly- most of it is substandard- even for groups that are evidently TALENTED, their sound just isn't appealing to the mainstream's ear. And so, METAL music suffers- even though the record companies KNOW that metal is a big UNDERGROUND seller- they are just more interested in the cash. Since the flow of audience appeal is more toward rap and other similar crap, the focus is there.

Don't knock us OLD FARTS, at the time, we were the ones cringeing every time we turned on the radio just to hear Michael Jackson. We were the ones who kept the METAL alive, even though the record industry turned it into a joke during the HAIR years- it was we loyal keepers of the faith that fuel what will eventually return again to reign as the number one seller of the music industry.

And if you think we are creepy because we are as old or older than your mom, just remember- WE were the ones nailing her a$$ to the back seat of our Trans Am's during her "wild" years. She met your dad after we left her high and dry, simply because she wanted a stable relationship- the same guy who thought Micheal "Jackitoff" Jackson was cool because he was a fashionable dancer. TSK TSK!!!

ah to be young and living in that run down trailor again, working for burger king and molesting my underage co-workers...

good times...till the f***ing lawsuits....

those pesky kids sure got me back didnt they???...."well theatre of pain" got me thru those times

it was so rad when the crue covered "ANARCHY IN THE UK" that was only wrong on 75 differnt levels but hey, alot of things were tolerated in the 80's i guess...sh**ty music for one.....care bears for another...christ what WAS that?....stupid bears still haunt me...

so anyway, i was blowing crackpipe hits into the cats face while listening "girls girls girls" wondering..."how does life get better than this?"

when all the sudden this skinny blonde haired kid came along and pretty much destroyed the only thing i had left.....FUKKING NIRVANA!!...grrr...im so glad he's dead.....how dare he puncture an overplayed over stuffed corporate behemoth genre with his simple melodies, (comparatively) modest production, original lyrical style, and so-so guitar skill....

GRRR mick mars could so kick his a$$ on guitar......too bad micks hip is being replaced with composite plastic.....heh, just like both of mine come to think of it......

Blackdog- On Dokken. I wouldn't say that Dokken was SPECIFICALLY a hair band- but, a LOT of people see them as such, and so they went into the classification- just as RATT probaly would. You must remember, at the time Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. was busy fending off the FCC for his albums insensitivity towards taboo subjects. Never forget he put out an album called "F*** Like A Beast" which got Tipper Gore all hot and heavy to put explicit lyrics parental discretion stickers on everything. RATT and Dokken were talented, though they DID play a few what I call "ballads"- they did have their moments. Jeff Lynch was one of the most copied guitarists at the time- "Paris is burning" intro was in retrospect an example of the running style of the time. His later solo project LYNCHMOB was an album that is still playable. But good ole Don Dokken, okay- he named the band after himself- a slight return just short of arrogant, but remember VAN HALEN . Don put out a few great albums, eventually writing a song for a Freddy Kruger movie that was actually played on radio for a few nights- but still he was hair band material eventually- even though he had talent. The BIG "IF ONLY" factor comes into play here. "IF" Dokken had broken their own self designed mold, and started shredding - putting out what would have been a darker or more intimidating sound, then they would still be huge names today- and i mean HUGE. I should have been better off naming Cinderella instead- because they WERE a hair band, just like White Lion- they had mediocre success, and then poof- never to be heard of again. I will never forget the time that I was at a show Cinderella opened, and Cinderellas TAPE broke- This was just around the time Milli Vanilli were doing their rip off act- it really ticked me off- Cinderella the band wasn't even playing. It was like WOW, these dudes SUCK!!! But then it came out about Milli and Vannilli...

But I wasn't meaning to degrade anyone's favorite band, even the ones I just mentioned. The industry has played up a lot of lackluster muscians in the past and recently simply because they look good behind a microphone- nothing to do with their musical staying power.

New Metal. Now that is something that deserves mentioning. To actual find NEW Metal that us old farts can appreciate, one has to devour a lot of time finding something that they like- I have listened to literally THOUSANDS of NEW bands- and few strike up enough interest to even mention. I gotta say they got the balls, but then again- they aren't what old farts like us are viewed exactly as their primary target audience. Pantera (RIP DIMEBAG) as an example- did not appeal to everyone- but then neither do bands like Sepulatura, Neurosis (Tribes of Neurot), Hammerfall, or whoever. Back "in the day", not everyone was into King Diamond, Motorhead, or Venom. NU Metal to me are bands that are similar to Rammstien, Mudvayne, Static X- but then we get into the genre of what is death metal, what is speed death metal, what is grunge metal, what is black metal, what is pop metal- You name it!!! Stoner Metal is one of my favorite genres (Electric Wizard, Sheavy) but even here, NOT every band is listenable to me. So, I have had to branch out- and listen to everything I can and dissect what I don't like, from what I do.

But when it comes to age- music is timeless. For a young kid to say to me that I am creepy for listening to music that doesn't "define my age" I have to remember that there were a number of crack babies in the 80's being born and given up for adoption. No doubt the ones that stayed with their mothers have a strong desire for RAP music. I won't knock RAP entirely, there is a hard edge there that even I can appreciate to a degree, but it is minimal- VERY minimal. The fact that these kids think that clothes that don't fit , jewelry, or piercings and tattoos define a man is ridiculous. The thing that defines a metalhead is the attitude, and it welds itself to the person's personality- certainly not their birthdate. I am too old to dress like a goth, or have hair down to my arse without EXPECTING harrassment - I listen to Metal, and I listen to it because it brings me happiness. If there is anything I can teach the youth of the day who listen to metal, it is this. Travel under the radar. Don't fret about the STATEMENT that dressing metal sends- the statement is in how you carry yourself through life. I could wear a shirt that says any number of perverted, macabre, or vulgar displays- but I would be immediately identified, and scourned for it. We are living in a society NOW that looks for suspects- in my area, wearing a black hooded sweat shirt sends a signal that I am a gang member- but I wear it anyway- cause I am too old to be in a gang, and even IF I was, I don't look the part. But cops look for signals like this- you will be judged for your hair length (short or long- doesn't matter) you will be judged for how you appear, if you are neat and clean- you escape observation to a degree, and you stand a greater chance of advancing yourself through society at a greater pace than someone who looks the way you feel inside. I know, its not about that, its about what you feel inside- I was there, I looked the part. But I was constantly harrassed as well. ONCE I cut my hair, put on a suit, hid my tatoos, I earned a greater respect- it was like being in the twilight zone because for YEARS I was treated as less of a person because of my outward and obvious rebellion. Simply because of my attire.

I am now about to go to work making a lots of money in a bank- but way down deep inside, and where no one can see the "real" me- I am, who Iam, and the joke is on them and I am getting paid for it. And so, I will laugh all the way down into and through the gates of hell- for in the next realm, I will be there to torment those who have opposed me- not to suffer as I did in this world, but to triumph.

For it is better to REIGN in Hell than to serve in heaven.- Neitzche

(Yeah- I guess I am a creepy OLD FART after all...HEHEHE)
