Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently had an interview with TalkRadio, and spoke about the band’s biography movie, “The Dirt – Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.”
Sixx also mentioned about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” which earned $1 billion on box office and 4 Academy Awards.
Here is what he says about Bohemian Rhapsody:
“I think that’s what’s exciting for people about the Queen movie: there’s a band who wrote their own music, they were their own personalities and they lived their life the way they lived their life. It’s the same for Mötley Crüe.”
He also talked about the The Dirt, which will premiere on March 22. Sixx says, He’s hoping people not to look at their lifestyle, but their music as a main driver.
Here is his statement:
“What I’m hoping people really take away from [the film] is, first of all, a better understanding of the band and a better understanding of the era, [as well as] where we came from.
We were children of the ’70s, so the bands that we were emulating and looked up to were pretty wild. And the ’80s were just about excess. So we just took that and just kept running with it. What I’m hoping is people understand more that the music was the main driver for this band and that a lot of people look at the lifestyle…
We had to deal with the downfall of the lifestyle — whether it’s car accidents or drug overdoses, etcetera, etcetera — but the music was always the most important thing. That’s why the soundtrack is really important to us that’s coming along with the movie.”
