MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx says that he had a great time reconnecting with his bandmates to record four new songs for the film adaptation of the group’s biography, “The Dirt – Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band”.
“There’s that saying, ‘It’s like riding a bicycle,'” he told USA Today about returning to the studio with the CRÜE. “I mean, it’s been almost 40 years with these three guys. We know everything about each other. I’ve known Mick [Mars] and Tommy [Lee] and Vince [Neil] longer than anybody on Earth… So there’s a bond between us that is unbreakable. Even if we’re fighting, it’s unbreakable.”
Asked if seeing how well the four songs turned out has led to any discussion about recording a new MÖTLEY CRÜE album, Nikki said: “I don’t know. Maybe if we got inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame or something, it might be fun to get out and bang up some songs. Besides that, we haven’t really talked about anything else yet. We’re pretty focused on the film and soundtrack.”
In a separate interview with Classic Rock, Sixx reiterated that he and his bandmates “haven’t had the talk” about a possible permanent reunion.
“Yeah, I miss the guys, and I miss playing with them, and playing that music, but everyone’s fairly busy with their own thing,” he said.
“That’s a whole conversation that we haven’t even had at that point. And I don’t know if we ever will.”
