Motor, Buckeye.......


A backstage interview with Nikki Sixx, before their second Etihad show with KISS last night, saw the bassist spill his guts to Bryget Chrisfield about Mötley Crüe’s plans to go out on a high.
“I wanna finish our movie [adaptation of Mötley Crüe’s New York Times bestselling collaborative autobiography The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band] and put out a new album,” he revealed before adding they will also release a soundtrack to the movie and then embark on “a farewell tour”. “We’ll be back in Australia and, ah, that’ll be it,” he said. “I can honourably say, ‘We did it our way and we’re never coming back’.”
Sixx accentuated that this split would see the band done for good, he has no interest in resurrecting its corpse down the track.
“It’s important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse’s head, and it goes down, it’s not a plastic bullet it’s a fucking shotgun blast. You know, blow its fucking brains out, it’s never coming back. It has to [be that way],” he stressed. “It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, it’s IT. I will cry. I cry thinking about it.”
Mötley Crüe have been raising musical hell for more than three decades and Sixx admits, “I love this band. I fucking spent my life doing this band. I’ve been doing this band longer than I’ve been doing anything else. And I’ve been in this band longer than I’ve known any woman, longer than I’ve known my children – only my family, and I have a closer relationship with my band than I have with my family, and a rockier relationship with my band than I’ve had with anybody in my family as well.
"So it’s very emotional and I just think it’s important that we finish what we started and then, you know, it will be whatever it will be. It could be beautiful. It could be a beautiful ending! When you go and see a great movie – I’ll leave you with this: when you go and see a great fucking movie and it ends and you go, ‘Fuck!’ like, you walk out and you go, ‘That was amazing! That blew my mind!’ It’s not like, ‘That blew my mind and, um, maybe there’ll be a sequel to it’.”
After various line-up changes and years of turmoil, the original Mötley Crüe line-up re-formed, announcing the Carnival Of Sins reunion tour in December 2004. Since then there’s been a new album, their ninth, entitled Saints Of Los Angeles (2008) and relentless touring including appearances at their own Crüe Fest music festivals, a three-week residency at Hard Rock venue The Joint in Las Vegas and their ongoing Monster co-headline tour with KISS.

So... we're gonna get one more album, the movie and a soundtrack, and a farewell tour!! Hmmm... Actually not surprised at that really. Its been said before, just never with that much certainty. I guess the question really is, when will all of this happen?

Motley Crue was one of those bands who turned me onto rock.

Agreed and, after seeing them last summer, they almost turned me off of rock.

Yeah, my first thought upon checking this thread was "They still exist?" They did their job in the 80s, but they've been dragging ass for 10+ years.

Interesting. I don't know. It seems like they have all been a business partnership rather than a band for years now anyways. The single last summer, "Sex", sucked. Tommy doesn't even participate in the meet and greets anymore. It just seems like they are going through the motions for a paycheck. I prefer Sixx: AM lately anyway

I have seen Mötley every year, every tour since Theatre of Pain. There have been a few dud shows....the one that sticks out was the year they did the Feelgood album in its entirety. They always play a strong, tight set even though the set list barely changes. The last album, Saints of Los Angeles was really good. The single, SEX...I can take I or leave it. They still get huge fan/crowd support. I know they are touring this year, so I'll be at that. Then it's the new album, movie and soundtrack them the farewell tour. I say it's still 5 years away before its all done.

Sixx AM is good. They have a good chunk of their 3rd album done. Ashba is back on the road with GnR and Sixx with Mots so, writing may be on hold.
