In a new interview with Classic Rock, Nikki Sixx talked about the 80s phase of Motley Crue.
He revealed the band was “most probably” a sexist group throughout the 1980s, but claims “everybody” else was too.
“It was a different time.”
“In today’s environment, most probably.”
“As was everybody. In the seventies, when I grew up, it was just the messaging that came through, and you were emulating your heroes.”
Nikki also talked about the term “slitty licker” on AEROSMITH’s debut album [on the track Pandora’s Box].
“I was like, ‘Wow, that’s f*cking rad!’ It was dangerous, y’know? When someone is talking about guns and sex and drugs, you’re like, ‘This is f*cking dangerous, man. This is not mom and dad’s music.’ So it was a different time. You can’t rewrite history, man.”
