A good rock beef will definitely generate headlines, but the recent back-and-forth between Stryper's Michael Sweet and Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx may not go any further. Sweet has offered a response after Sixx offered a sharp take on Sweet's criticism of Motley Crue's past autobiography, 'The Dirt.'
We knew the bad blood between Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx and Godsmack went deep, but an entirely new part of the story has just been revealed. From the Crue bassist's own mouth, it was shared that Motley Crue, at one point, threatened to pull out of approximately 15 headlining festival spots if Godsmack were to be added onto the various bills.
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx has been involved in various wars of words lately, including battles with Godsmack and Sebastian Bach. Now, Sixx has completed a verbal hat trick, firing back at Stryper's Michael Sweet after the Christian rock frontman questioned the validity of Nikki Sixx's autobiography.
Motley Crue recently announced their farewell run dubbed ‘The Final Tour’ and made it official by signing a binding document that they would not tour again beyond the year 2015. The press conference included the first leg of tour dates and now the band has revealed three more stops including what will be their very last concert in New York City.
The end is nigh for Motley Crue. The band said as much during a Tuesday (Jan. 28) press conference in Los Angeles where they revealed the details of "The Final Tour" (first leg of dates below). In fact, to ensure that these next two years will mark the band's final dates, the members of Crue went through the process of collectively drawing up a 'Cessation of Touring' legal document and signing it to solidify that their upcoming dates will be the final shows and that they won't tour again beyond the year 2015.
