Nikki Sixx says he'd like see Motley Crue go out while they're still on top. The musician spoke with Loudwire and other reporters at the recent NAMM Convention, where he was showing off his new Schecter Sixx bass guitar, and he addressed Motley Crue's future, their upcoming album and winning the 2012 Loudwire Bassis
Nikki Sixx is a man of many passions, as evidenced by his career as a successful author, photographer and radio host as well as the musical work he's best known for as a member of Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M. On Saturday (Jan. 26), Sixx was able to reveal his latest creative venture, the new 'Schecter Sixx' signature series bass, during the NAMM convention in Anaheim, California.
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.'
In the '80s, Motley Crue lived the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" lifestyle to its fullest and bassist Nikki Sixx almost succumbed to his hedonism. On Dec. 23, 1987, Sixx was actually declared legally dead from a drug overdose before he was eventually revived. Now, 25 years later, Sixx has remembered the incident with a new message to his fans.
The year 2013 is gearing up to be a big one for Motley Crue and Nikki Sixx. In addition to working on a broadway play based on his book ‘The Heroin Diaries,’ and his recent engagement to longtime girlfriend Courtney Bingham, the bassist recently confirmed that Motley Crue is indeed working on a brand spanking new full-length album.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is surely all smiles right now, as he's been revealing a mess of good news during the last few days. Along with the bassist giving fans an update on the progress of Motley Crue's new material, Sixx has just announced that he popped the question to his model girlfriend Courtney Bingham, officially snatching her up as the future Mrs. Sixx.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx may hold some sort of record when it comes to turning something negative into a positive. Sixx found success with his memoir 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star' in 2007, and now the bassist has revealed that he'll be turning the book into a Broadway play.
