Mötley Crüe’s bassist Nikki Sixx shared a post on Instagram to commemorate those who passed away in the 9/11 attacks. In the post, he also revealed where he was at that day.
September 11, 2001, is a tragic day for U.S. citizens to remember those who died during the series of terrorist attacks which targeted the Twin Towers. Nonetheless, it is still hard for the citizens to get over their losses since the whole country was traumatized that day.
Back in those days, not just the Americans but most people around the world were focused on these terrorist attacks. Many still remember exactly where they were at that time and how they felt after seeing or hearing about the attacks. It appears Mötley Crüe’s bassist was also one of those who still remember where they were: at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
In his recent Instagram post, Nikki Sixx commemorated the 9/11 attacks and commented on what happened that day. He then stated he will never forget where he was during the attacks. According to the bassist, he was at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting when he heard about the attacks from a guy who walked in there.
Nikki Sixx’s Instagram post read:
“Never forget 9/11. It’s harrowing, yet, important to look back on this horrible day. All the beautiful souls that were lost, families that were destroyed, and at the same time how America pulled together in solidarity.
I will never forget where I was. It’s was at an early morning Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, I was waiting for people to come in, drinking coffee when a guy walked in the door and said ‘have you heard about the plane that accidentally crashed into one of the twin towers in NYC.’ We hadn’t yet. Nobody had phones with news apps etc. at that point.
The meeting ended right then cause someone said they thought it might be a terrorist attack. Within a few hours, the devastating chain of events unfolded right before our eyes on the news. Heartbreaking, traumatizing, and confusing as fear set into Los Angeles. The overpopulated city all of a sudden was now a ghost town. We all thought about the possibility of all major cities being next. God Bless America. Where were you?”
Mötley Crüe is mainly known for their irresponsible attitude as they invest most of their money on drugs and alcohol. However, their idea of rock and roll lifestyle came to an end gradually. Apparently, Sixx was also trying to overcome his alcohol addiction in 2001 as he was attending a meeting during the attacks.
