MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx says that he will probably never see his bandmates again now that they are no longer a touring entity.
In the group’s farewell concert film, “The End”, which hits U.S. cinemas later this month, Sixx states: “We don’t hang out now… We go on stage… like motherfuckers. But we don’t hang out. We don’t go to dinner, we don’t go to each other’s houses for Christmas. We’re not enemies, but we’re not friends… I’ll probably never see them, except in passing.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil says: “The hardest part about being in MÖTLEY CRÜE is being in MÖTLEY CRÜE. I don’t know if other bands of our stature go through some of the crap that we go through. That’s just the tough part. Being onstage and doing that stuff, that’s just the easy part.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee recently told Rolling Stone that after the band’s final show in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve, “we had a big party backstage that night, and I never saw the other guys. We never even said ‘goodbye.’ Strange as hell, dude. I mean, what the hell?”
And he hasn’t heard from them since. “I haven’t spoken to Vince Neil or Nikki Sixx,” he said. “I speak to [guitarist] Mick Mars a lot. He’s actually working on some new stuff, and I’m really happy for him. I think Nikki unfollowed me on Twitter, like, the next day. I was like, ‘Wow. Okay dude.'”
“The End” will be screened in selected theaters on June 14, with a DVD release expected later. The 140-minute film includes footage from the CRÜE‘s farewell show on December 31, 2015 at the Staples Center along with “exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the last week of the tour.”
