Bassist Nikki Sixx confessed that MotleyCrue guys haven’t exactly parted ways on friendly terms after wrapping up their farewell tour at the end of 2015, telling Metal Hammer:
“Well, it’s been a while [since I’ve seen any of my Crue bandmates]. It didn’t really end that amicably.
“I’ve always been the sort of person who wants to create art, and there are musicians who don’t want to make records anymore because they don’t make any money from them.
“I don’t understand that attitude at all, and I think some of the guys in Motley just had a different idea to me in how we should be.
“But I’m very grateful. You know, ending our career playing ‘Home Sweet Home’ at The Staples Center in our hometown. That’s an unbelievable way to go out.”
Asked if he misses the “full-throttle days” of Motley Crue, Nikki replied:
“I think being in my 50s and wishing for that would be like being the CEO of a successful company and still wishing you were in a fraternity in college.
“Listen, they were great, incredible days, but I have so much more going on in my life now that to look back and try to recreate that would be a little sad.”
