Nikki Sixx Talks Crue's Big Year
The bassist should probably speak to the band's singerDespite Vince Neil's shock revelation earlier this week that he was seriously thinking about leaving the band after the band's shows in Las Vegas in February, Nikki Sixx has revealed that Motley Crue are due to have a big "four or five years" ahead of them.
Sixx told Rolling Stone "This is the beginning of what will be the biggest probably four to five years of the band’s career. We’re negotiating with a couple of other extremely huge bands on doing a co-headline tour, something that’s never happened before. There's new music in the future."
He also revealed that the band are likely to finally get their long mooted film off the ground."The other thing to look at is the wheels are in motion for getting the Mötley Crüe movie made now. We finally got everything in order the way it needs to be done, and that’s gonna happen."
He does concede that the band are likely to call it a day sooner, rather than later, though.
"The band sat down and had a powwow as brothers and friends and guys who’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and we said, 'When is it time?'" Sixx says. "We’ve always said since we were kids we didn’t want to hobble in to the sunset. So after the movie, at some point – whether it’s within a year or a few years – we’re probably gonna have that conversation about maybe it’s time, maybe it’s time to go out on top."
