LA Guns frontman Phil Lewis says that Sixx exaggerated his drug use
In an interview with Bravewords, Lewis took aim at Motley Crue and bands such as Poison, saying:
"I don’t like Arena rock Motley crue with exploding drum sets and migets bore me to death, Poision and Bret’s muscle dance is an embaresment, Deff L going through the motions and mailing it in every night is pathetic. Most off all I don’t like the knuckle heads that go to these ‘Concerts’ Motley Crue dude!!! Thats fine, the fans don’t give a fuck about the music they wanna get drunk and hear the hits and the bands don’t care they just want the outrageous easy money there used to getting and get the hell outa dodge ASAP, When was the last time any of those bands did a free after show meet and greet???"
When Sixx responded on Twitter by referring to Lewis as "a sad lil pumpkin", Lewis launched into a tirade about Sixx's drug use on Metalsludge.tv.
"I say Nikki Sixx and his Heroin Diaries are a total fraud, Anyone that was ever addicted to Smack or any opiates knows not to glorify addiction its incredibly irresponsible. It’s total crap as well, Nikki may have dabbled a little but him and most of the dinosaur rockstars of that era were doing tons of blow or cocaine. There was very little heroin in LA in the 80s compared to London. Sixx was a teenage millionaire with a very thin grasp on reality. I don’t give a fuck what he thinks about me or any singers.
"And I do know excatly what I’m talking about what cities had the most drugs coz I did lots in both. But I don’t glorify it or complain I was sucked into coz of an unhappy childhood. Teaching people that heroin is cool is reprehensible especially if its a work of fiction.
"Oh and if I ever needed another reason to dislike Sixx his version of "Anarchy in the UK” is a good start."
Sixx is yet to respond.
