Michael Christopher of The Delaware County Daily Times recently conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
On MÖTLEY CRÜE's current tour with POISON and NEW YORK DOLLS:
Sixx: "Everything was fine, until Bret went on 'Piers Morgan' and announced the tour when he knew he was supposed to do it with MÖTLEY CRÜE. It was a MÖTLEY CRÜE tour with the NEW YORK DOLLS and POISON supporting, and that really pissed off my band. We didn't want the tour, because of the reasons not personally, but because of keeping things segregated and then when he went and took it into his own hands that it was like his idea ? yeah. He was the one on the phone that told me he wanted to do it because his band needs credibility and MÖTLEY CRÜE is a credible band ? it pissed us off, because we were sucker-punched."
On fan poll MÖTLEY CRÜE took which led to the decision to tour with POISON:
Sixx: "The fans chose GUNS N' ROSES first, DEF LEPPARD second and POISON third and we're like, 'Really?' We talked to GUNS N' ROSES, talked to DEF LEPPARD, talked to POISON who was available and the other two weren't. It just worked out."
"In the end, what happens internally, politically, (expletive) like that, it might be frustrating, but in the end it really does matter what are the fans getting? We feel like they're getting the real deal with the NEW YORK DOLLS, we feel like they're getting to see POISON; they've got four or five hit songs and they've got some great cover songs they've done. They get 45 to 50 minutes and are giving the fans a really great show and then you got MÖTLEY. In the end, everybody does win."
