In a new interview with Canada’s The Metal Voice, Chris Holes thanked Nikki Sixx for helping him cover cancer diagnosis expenses.
Chris released this information when interviewer asked him whether his former band mate Blackie Lawless contacted him during the diagnosis.
Here’s what Chris said:
“Blackie could have helped to pay for some of my treatment, but [he didn’t]. But Nikki Sixx [MÖTLEY CRÜE] did. He gave me a lot of money. He was the first one; he forked over 500 bucks, and I love the guy for it. Thank you, Nikki. I love him for that.”
“About the first month I was sick, [I got video messages of support from fellow musicians] and [I got one from JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford]. [In his message, he said], ‘Chris, this is your Metal God, Rob Halford.’ And it was kind of cool. Rob talked a little bit on there. And then the guitar player that took [Glenn] Tipton‘s gig [Richie Faulkner] thanked me. A bunch of… tons of people did. But nobody from W.A.S.P. did. It’s kind of weird. Nobody. [Blackie] didn’t send me a message at all. I thought he would, but he didn’t. But that’s okay; I didn’t expect it.
