Mötley Crüe’s co-founder and bass guitarist, Nikki Sixx, recently responded to a fan’s tweet who unveiled some of his never seen before photographs from his late teenage years and went on to explain why he used to be so thin.

As you know Nikki Sixx is one of the rockstars who are the most active on their social media accounts. He often prefers to use his Instagram account to share sneak peeks from his life and announce his upcoming projects, but uses his Twitter account when he wishes to express his views on various matters, talk about music, and interact with his fans.

A couple of days ago, a fan unearthed some photos from Nikki’s teenage years and posted them on their Twitter account. Upon seeing these photos, Sixx couldn’t believe how thin he was and said that ‘food wasn’t prevalent in those days.’ His tweet received numerous comments most of which came from fans who were trying to figure out his age at the time.

Here’s what his fan asked Nikki:

“Nikki Sixx, you know who is this rock star puppy?”

To which Sixx responded:

Let’s just say food wasn’t very prevalent in those days…”
