As Motley Crue‘s celebrated Final Tour enters its final months, the group is taking stock.
For Nikki Sixx,saying goodbye now is an attempt to go out with some dignity intact, a choice that he says certain rockers of the previous generation didn’t always make. Worse still, there were those who announced multiple farewell tours, only to return. That led directly to Motley Crue’s contractual agreement to never play again.
“I mean, the Who is cool and all but, guys, really?” Sixx tells the Los Angeles Times. “They’re playing half-full places with just two guys left in the band. I get it. They’re entitled to that. But it’s just not for us.”
