Nikki Sixx recently talked to the Toronto Sun about all things Motley Crue . The band is, of course, in the midst of its farewell tour and they’ve been playing a new song -- appropriately titled “All Bad Things Must End” -- at these gigs. Explaining the song’s inspiration, Sixx says, “It’s pretty much us saying even the devil’s got to pay for his crime at some time… It’s kind of a dark, snarky, Motley Crue way of looking at our[selves].”
Of the band’s decision to play their final show in Los Angeles, Sixx adds, “I had been talking to the guys and I said, ‘We have to take our final bow in the city that we started in.’ Just the four of us, that didn’t even have a way to get around town, walking up and down Sunset Boulevard, putting up flyers… It’s been over 30 years [but] it’s the same four guys.”
Sixx also weighed in on the upcoming film adaptation of the Crue book The Dirt -- Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band . “It’s got edge, it’s got bite, it’s not a VH1 glossy, Rock of Ages period piece,” says the bassist. “It’s a real story of a real band… The worst thing we could do is cast a bunch of known actors. The four characters of Motley Crue, they need to be some unknown guys that are willing to just get in there and go for it. I don’t want to look at a famous actor playing Vince Neil . I’m not going to believe it.”
Motley Crue’s farewell tour stops in Pelham, Alabama on Friday.
