Congrats to Nikki Sixx, the winner of the 2012 Loudwire Music Award for Bassist of the Year. The veteran rocker carried over some of his Sixx: A.M. momentum from 2011 and then kept things going by joining Motley Crue for their summer tour with Kiss. In addition, the Crue did keep fans satiated with their new single, ‘Sex.’

Sixx took home a massive 30.45 percent of the vote, showing that his popularity has not waned over his storied career. In fact, it was another well-known veteran bassist that Sixx beat to take home the title. Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, who entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his band this year, finished a distant second with just over 19 percent of the vote. The only other bass hero to receive a double-digit voting tally was Tremonti and Van Halen wunderkind Wolfgang Van Halen, who eeked out 10 percent of the fan voting.

Congrats to Sixx on winning the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards Bassist of the Year honor. Look out for a potential repeat victory in 2013 with Sixx expected to have new records out from both Crue and Sixx: A.M. See the full voting results below and click the red button to see the next winner:
