Mötley Crüe’s hedonistic lifestyle that lasted for 40 years ended with a final concert in Los Angeles. The band has gone through a lot together, from lawsuits to car accidents, and they even released a book detailing their experiences, which later became the band’s biopic.
In their book ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,’ the band immortalized their memories and revealed many stories that shocked their fans. The stories included incidents such as sleeping with a woman to drive her car or doing illegal things while being under the influence of drugs.
In 2014, the band members decided to quit Mötley Crüe and embarked on their Farewell Tour. They gave their final concert in Los Angeles, where they had also performed their first concert when they first launched their careers.
What Did Tommy Lee Say About Nikki Sixx?
Even though the band members seemed close, especially because they stuck together for 40 years and went through a lot, apparently Sixx needed a break from his bandmate Lee, and so he unfollowed the drummer on Twitter as soon as their final show ended.
Lee talked about their final show in an interview with Rolling Stone, and he revealed that he was shocked. Not only because of the unfollowing but also because none of the band members showed up for the after-party, not to even say goodbye.
This is what he said about their last show:
“It’s kind of strange, man. We’re a fucking weird band. Even stranger, after the final night, we had a big party backstage on New Year’s Eve, and I never saw the other guys. We never even said ‘goodbye.’ Fucking strange as hell, dude. I mean, what the fuck?
I really don’t know. I mean, if you’re getting divorced, you still give your ex a hug or flip her off or something. You either get a kiss or a slap or… Something. Give me a sign! Let me know you’re alive.
I think fucking Nikki unfollowed me on fucking Twitter, like, the next day. I was like, ‘Wow. Okay, dude.'”
Even though that was their last show together, all the members and especially Nikki Sixx, seemed okay with it. Sixx recently revealed that he is working on his book ‘The First 21,’ and showed his fans that he is happy to be doing something unrelated to Mötley Crüe.
The band members have never issued a formal explanation considering the problem between the band members. However, Lee stated that there have always been clashes, but he doesn’t have any hard feelings.
This is what Lee stated:
“There’s always been issues. I don’t have ill feelings at all. I’m saying this with a smile on my face. I’m just happy to be part of something that was so impactful on so many people’s lives musically and lifestyle-wise.
That’s pretty fucking insane, and I’m really happy that we decided to end it on a high note and not really drive this thing into the ground like so many of our other musical peers have. It’s just really cool and quite an honor to kind of bow out when it’s still larger-than-life. It could have gone a different route.“
Even though the band didn’t say goodbye to each other and Sixx unfollowed Lee on Twitter as soon as possible, the duo seems to have talked about it and sorted it out because right now, they are both following each other. Furthermore, it would be pretty weird for them not to get along during their upcoming Stadium Tour, which will begin in 2022.
