Nikki Sixx Says That He Is An Anti Rock Star (Week in Review)
The bassist plans to spend the next two years concentrating on Sixx:AM and turning it into his main project after it spent its first eight years in Crue's shadow. Sixx tells RockSverige: "I said, 'I will never play Motley Crue music again' because I wanted people to hear me. I wanted them to hear that Sixx:AM have five hit singles right now, we've got a double record coming out, we're got two years of touring. After seeing my own words in the press I was like, 'Who knows? Maybe four or five years down the line we'll do an acoustic version of Live Wire."
He adds that Sixx:AM will "never lean on Motley Crue" but continues: "I wrote the songs, so I guess I'm entitled to play them if I want. I just want some distance."
Asked about the biggest misconception people have about him, Sixx says: "I think people might think I'm a little more exciting than I am. I'll be honest - I'm really quite boring.
"I'm always looking for something, and because of that I'm not really that rock'n'roll. I'm the anti rock star." Watch the full interview - here.
