Nikki Sixx Says He “Would Love To” Record New Music With Mötley Crüe

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation L.A. Invasion,” Nikki Sixx was asked about the possibility of new Mötley Crüe music. The bassist responded by saying that he “would love to make some music with the guys again.”

Sixx said the following:

“I would love to make some music with the guys again. I would love to get really simple and really raw and really dirty. And that’s something I’m inspired by now, whether — it might be a new band or stuff I’m listening to and the simplicity of ‘Black Dog’, and you listen to that, and you’re, like, ‘Man…’

Some of the stuff that’s out right now is so good but it’s also so overproduced,” he continued. “I don’t feel that when I listen to any genre music or just in the rock world, [BLACK] SABBATH had the same kick-drum sound as [LED] ZEPPELIN, the same kick-drum sound as AEROSMITH, the same guitar sound — they all had the same guitar sound. It bothers me that so much stuff sounds the same, yet it’s also really good — really good hooks, really aggressive, really exciting. And so when I hear some younger bands — like, people will throw on GRETA VAN FLEET, for example. What everybody liked about that is it was just simple and raw and passionate, that first EP. And the same with THE STRUTS and stuff like that. There was some innocence to it. And I think that there’s so much technology out there that we can fall prey to making it perfect. And I would love to make maybe some imperfect music.”

He also added the following when asked if the band plan to play more shows after their stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett:

“I know we’re gonna tour next year, and that’s gonna take us from June 19th to sometime in September. And then winter sets in, and we’re in America, so there’s nowhere else to play — unless we can go to other countries where it’s summertime or spring or fall there. But what’s gonna happen with COVID? So I don’t know right now. I do know what’s happening in America. I don’t know what’s going on in Europe or South America or Mexico [or] Australia [or] New Zealand.”
