Nikki Sixx Was 'Just Ready' To End Motley Crue


(Classic Rock) Nikki Sixx says that he was "just ready" to put an end to Motley Crue, which played their last ever concert on New Year's Eve in Los Angeles and he reveals the group had been planning their farewell for years.

The bassist, who is focused on his other band Sixx: A.M. and their new album "Prayers For The Damned Vol. 1" tells Metal Hammer: In Residence on Spotify: "Some people were like, 'Were you sad, were you mad, were you glad?' I think I was just ready.

"We were at a place where we had decided about four or five years ago that we'd said most of what we'd wanted to say. We couldn't really produce music together anymore. We had somehow just ceased to be a creative animal and it had become a production animal.

"We were playing these songs that we were really proud of, but we weren't writing anything new. The band was all in different head spaces and different places.

"And that happens. But we said, 'Well how are we gonna do this? Are we gonna keep doing this or are we gonna call it a day and go out on our terms?'" Read more here.
