MÖTLEY CRÜE’s Nikki Sixx is under fire right now by the rock media, his peers in the rock n roll music industry plus Mick Mars, his former guitarist.
A shocking revelation dropped this past week thanks to drummer Carmine Appice that confirms the worst, Mars left the Crue due to him not being happy with pre-recorded backing tracks being used for all instruments and vocals at the band’s live shows.
On Wednesday (March 15), Sixx, who has not given any interviews about Mars‘s departure from CRÜE, responded directly to Appice‘s comments, writing in a tweet: “Love how people talk FOR us without talking TO us. This is why the media has lost credibility. Obviously by printing BS they make money off of advertising and we’re not into that clickbait game. When the truth comes out it will be FROM üs.”
Wait a minute. This is the same asshole who waited 11 days after TMD broke the ‘double down’ story that confirmed with a named source that Mick was indeed out of the Crue’s touring lineup? Why did Sixx wait so long to admit the truth? Ticket sales. Think about it! He knew because the cat getting out of the bag so soon after the World Tour concert tickets for the Crue went on sale at the same time spelled DOOM so he did not want the fans to turn against him. So, what did Sixx do instead of telling the truth? He lied. Sixx said that Mars was retiring from touring due to his “back”. No thank you on the stage for your work over the years and a proper goodbye at a Crue concert so fans can say farewell to Mars. Sixx did not even allow Mars to make a public statement himself. Nothing.
Sixx added later that same day in another Tweet: “A washed up drummer trying to speak for us? And bottom feeder media running with it to make money off of lies? Welcome to the sad new world of LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME.”
A washed-up drummer? I think Carmine Appice deserves a bit more respect than that. Is he out playing shows with a backing track like Tommy Lee of the Crue was caught doing at The Stadium Tour last year?
And was it not Tommy Lee who then exposed his own penis on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram?
On Friday (March 17), Sixx took part in a Twitter question-and-answer session and was asked by one fan: “Is what Carmine Appice said true?” the CRÜE bassist replied: “A washed up drummer speaking for our band without any of the facts is as ridiculous as bottom feeder media running with stories without fact checking. When you hear the truth it will be from us.”

Yesterday, fans saw troubled Crue vocalist Vince Neil do an online Q&A livestream event wherein he fielded questions from the fans directly, and a moderator, who himself asked Vince about his relationship with Mick Mars, and the singer replied rather coldly, “I don’t talk to him.”
