Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx recently shared a post on Instagram of Alice Cooper’s knife set stating that Cooper gave it to him and that he will start practicing on his wife.
Nikki Sixx is best known as the bassist and songwriter of Mötley Crüe. In his career, Sixx worked with Alice Cooper in his 1991 song ‘Feed My Frankenstein’ from the album ‘Hey Stoopid.’ He wrote ‘Die For You’ with Alice and Mick Mars, the Mötley Crüe guitarist.
The bassist lived the rock and roll party life at its peak. He became addicted to numerous drugs, but his soft spot was heroin, and he stated that he probably overdosed ‘a dozen times.’ His interest in drugs, alcohol, and violence has been apparent throughout his career. In 1987, Nikki overdosed on heroin and was clinically dead for two minutes.
As for his tendency for violence, at a concert in 1997, Sixx attacked a security guard while uttering racist slurs. 4 years later, he apologized publicly for his actions and asked for the victim’s forgiveness. With his history of drug abuse and violence, it may be scary to see that Alice Cooper gave him his knife set. Sixx shared the photo of the set ironically, stating that he will now ‘practice on his wife.’
Here is the caption Sixx wrote:
“Alice Cooper gave me his famed throwing knives after our last tour together. I will keep these forever. Beyond badass from the main man himself. Now off to practice on my wife.“
Most of his fans are aware of the bassist’s ironic tone. Therefore the majority of the comments were joking about it and ignoring the ‘wife’ comment. Some users extended the joke stating that the couple should take turns on each other.
