Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and Nicolas Cage's son Weston, who is a notable black metal musician, reportedly had a bit of an altercation over the weekend which nearly ended in fisticuffs. After a Motley Crue performance on Sept. 22, a backstage brawl nearly occurred after Weston was reportedly blocking the entrance to Lee's dressing room.
Motley Crue kicked off their second Las Vegas residency earlier this week (Sept. 18) at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Leading up to the engagement, singer Vince Neil took some time to talk about their all-new, 'Red Hot' production and the personal challenges of their nightly setlist.
The back-and-forth between Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach has continued through the weekend. After Bach stated via his Twitter account that he was asked to replace Vince Neil in Motley Crue, Sixx quickly claimed that Bach was never offered the gig. Each side has been attempting to win the argument ever since, and there's a new chapter to report in the Bach vs. Sixx saga.
According to former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, "Nikki Sixx's 'claim' that Sebastian Bach's 'claim' is 'absolutely not true' is 'absolutely not true.'" We assume you read that last sentence about half-a-dozen times before moving forward, so we'll do our best to clarify the confusion which is stirring between Bach and Sixx.
A short while ago, former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach claimed that he was asked to join Motley Crue as Vince Neil's replacement after the singer was fired in 1992. He even teased that the full story may be revealed in a future autobiography. However, Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has refuted Bach's claims, stating that it's "absolutely not true."
While it’s not uncommon for Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx to share his thoughts and opinions with his fans through social networking, his latest words encompass something that impacts the music industry as a whole – the growing trend of purchasing single songs in lieu of the full album through digital outlets.

The Sunset's Strip's most infamous export, Mötley Crüe, have been giving fans a piece of their action for 30 years. Their over-the-top stage show and attitude have kept them busy, playing stadiums all over the world and bringing back the spirit of '80s. Singer Vince Neil recently reaffirmed bassist Nikki Sixx's declaration that the band would call it quits in the near future, but guitarist Mick Mars says one of the reasons Neil gave is not accurate.
