Steel Panther guitarist Satchel has weighed in on Nikki Sixx‘s claim that he doesn’t get the credit that he deserves as a bass player.
After a post made by Nikki Sixx on his Twitter page, replying that he is “the most underrated bass player ever”, Satchel commented to this:
“Nikki Sixx, I don’t think anybody really gives a s*it how well he plays the bass.
“Listen, everybody loves Motley Crue, everybody loves those songs.”
“I give it up for Crue — I love ’em; they’re great. But I’ve seen Motley Crue a bunch of times, and they’ve never sounded great live. But nobody gives a s*it.
He should be glad that they don’t really have to sound great live. Vince [Neil] has never been a great live singer. Who gives a s*it? They’ve got great songs.
Listen, we toured with those guys, and I think [Nikki] said two words to me the whole f*cking tour.
I love those guys. They can hate us as much as they want. We’re gonna keep on f*cking rocking.
Those guys are great. And if [Nikki] wants to bag on us, that’s cool. We’re a great live band. If he wants to come out and see us some time and jam with us, he can sit in with us and I’ll tell him all the right notes to play on the bass.”
