Legendary rockers Mötley Crüe have entertained us with some of the classic glam rock songs in the last few decades. Having sold 100 million albums worldwide has made them one of the best-selling bands of all time. In addition to that, Motley Crue boys have also achieved seven platinum or multi-platinum certifications, six Top 20 pop singles, twenty-two Top 40 mainstream rock hits, and nine Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Fans love the Crue boys and without any doubt, 1989’s Dr. Feelgood is Mötley Crüe’s most popular album which reached number one. Nikki Sixx is one of the most loved bassists in the history of rock music. Nikki has always expressed the pain and anxiety he went through his childhood.
Mötley Crüe’s bassist Nikki Sixx posted a really emotional and touching photo of his mother and wrote a heartbreaking letter.
Here is that touching letter:
“Maybe 1962-63… I sometimes feel deep pain knowing that this woman and I never ever really connected. Abandonment is a b*tch. Maybe she loved me but I never knew.
“All I have are fragile memories and resentment. Between my dad that left at 3 and her, I felt like a worthless piece of trash ( look up Primal Scream lyrics ). All I ever wanted was to be a better man than my dad and show my kids, unconditional love, unlike my mom.
I guess this an overshare on this plastic platform called social media where everything is sparkly shiny and new but that’s who I am as an artist. I speak my truth and for the underdogs.
Nikki further expressed his journey to be a rich musician along with sorrow and anger.
In a sick way, my sorrow and anger have given many people joy…My joy comes from my family. I could and never have cared about being a rocker-star or rich. Ironically I became both but not without scars…
I am grateful I finally found peace. If you suffer I pray the same for you but it takes work. Odd question. So we look alike? I have no memories of her face so this is all I have.”
