Motley Crue Really Is Breaking Up After Tour Says Sixx

(hennemusic) Nikki Sixx says Motley Crue says that he believes that the band is indeed breaking up and explained that they have no plans to write and record new music following their final concert as a band on December 31 in Los Angeles.

"In my opinion, yes, we're breaking up," Sixx tells Cindy Scull of 97.1 The Eagle Rocks in Dallas/Ft. Worth. "We're done as a touring band. If you don't tour, you're not a band in a sense. Will we re-release our songs? Will they come out in movies? But I don't believe we're a band anymore after that."

Sixx explains there needs to be a reason to justify the group's time and energy to make new music. "I mean, the door's not shut," says the bassist. "But my belief is you make music to tour. And, you know, nowadays music is not the sole purpose anymore, even though we all love music and we live music.

"But what I'm doing right now with my other band, SIXX: A.M., I'm making a double album, and I'm gonna go on tour for two years. And music is a way to get people to come see the band to play the music for them, but in the end, the music isn't like what it used to be. Now you put a record out so you can tour."

Sixx reflects on his impression of how Motley Crue may operate once their live career is over after the 2-year farewell tour comes to an end. "I think Motley Crue will be a brotherhood and not a band," he adds. "We're gonna call each other and say things like, 'Hey, this movie's coming up. What do you think? We can put one of our songs in it. It'll be the tenth anniversary of us breaking up.' But I don't see a purpose to go in the studio and write songs." Listen to the full interview here.
