Nikki Sixx Says Motley Crue Album Experience Was Difficult

(New Rock Times) Nikki Sixx says working with John Corabi 'was hard' due to the latter's lack of natural ability to write lyrics. Reflecting on the only album which Motley Crue released without long time frontman Vince Neil, Sixx recalls working with John Corabi on vocals in 1994 as a difficult time which resulted in a 'very unfocused record.'

The Motley Crue bassist tells Sweden Rock Magazine: "I've gotta tell you, I think it was a very unfocused record. It was painful for me, because John Corabi can't write lyrics, and I had to do all that work.

"It was the first time I ever had to work with somebody that wanted to participate in the lyrics. And my standard is so high that it was just… It was so hard, it took months... Usually, I write a set of lyrics in an hour. And it's all about having pent-up information and aggression and just [letting it out]. And it was just hard, because he was… a nice enough guy, but he just didn't have that fire, and it was hard for me."

He goes on: "And I just felt like Bob Rock really got us… 'Cause we just really wanted to get the riffs going and stuff, and he captured that. But in general, there's like… 'Hooligan's Holiday''s a good song. 'Poison Apples', I think, was a good song. But in general, it felt like a great-sounding record, but a little bit unfocused. That's just me. Like, the choruses weren't big enough. But it was just hard." Read more here.
