Nikki Sixx Reveals Why Motley Crue Are Retiring

10/07/2013
.
(hennemusic) Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss the band's farewell tour plans as the group wrap up their second Las Vegas residency.

This past summer, Crue frontman Vince Neil revealed that the metal band's plans to retire in the next few years are 'real' and that they won't hold multiple farewell tours like KISS.

"We haven't decided when that is, we're talking about that," says Sixx. "It'll happen, but we don't know when it will happen. The most important thing about a farewell tour is that the band doesn't lie to the fans, and the band doesn't tour and then come back years later. That's what's important for us, planning what's the right time to go out. We have a great fan base, we have original fans all the way down to teenagers, and we really feel grateful to that and we continue to reinvent ourselves over the years. People always tried to make us an unimportant part of rock history and that doesn't really affect us because it's always been that way. Critics have always snubbed us. The thing about Motley Crue is we are a people's band, we don't kiss ass to the industry. We believe artists should be in control of their own destiny and that destiny also includes when it should be done so that their fans can forever be proud. It's not one or two band members up there dragging the band name around. It's a band for a reason, it works for a reason. We're really proud of that. I think that's why, when the day does come, we want to be proud of our band and what we've achieved."

"Someone said to me the other day, 'Won't you be sad?' I go, 'No, I'd be sad if we were playing half-full theaters and only two band members were in the band.' That would be sad," explained Sixx. "Sad is not taking your final bow in Los Angeles all together as four brothers.

"I talked to a friend the other day and they were talking about a friend of theirs who passed away. And after the funeral, they had this huge party and everybody was celebrating, drinking and telling stories about this guy and how fun he was and how much joy he gave everybody in life.

"That's how I feel about Motley Crue. When that day comes, that's what I want: one big f**king huge party to celebrate what we've done, all the good, all the bad, all the in-between. There it is, one big party, one final bow. It's gonna be f**king rad, but we're not there yet. Right now, we got three shows left in Vegas and then we're gonna start looking forward to when we tour next."

Sixx was asked if the Crue could perform multiple tours before a farewell trek. Read his response here.
