The talented musician and author Nikki sixx said in an interview with Aquarius that his group Motley Crue and members, Tommy lee, Vince Neil, and Mick mars, changed his life forever.
Nikki sixx has appeared in the rock and roll community for over four decades. Over the years, he has gone through difficult times creating his own legacy in the community. During his continued career on the rock scene, Sixx was a member of the heavy metal band Sister first. He later formed a group called London with his Sister group companion, Lizzie Gray, before going to train Motley crue.
In 1981, Nikki sixx form Motley Crue with the group’s drummer Tommy lee. Later they were joined by the guitarist Mick mars and the lead singer Vince Neil. Shortly after the band finished their training, they released their first studio album, Too fast for love, via their own label, LeathÃ¼r Records.
When the band released their debut album, they had unleashed two singles just before. They were some of the band’s hit songs, Hold on to your guns and City toast, which were written by Nikki sixx.
However, recently the musician discussed the idea that why didn’t he Motley Crue decide to reissue them in the Elektra reissue, Van halenthe impact of, Quiet riot, Randy Rhoads, and of course his group, Motley crue.
Focusing on the re-release of songs from the Elektra re-release, Nikki said, âI had this idea when we were getting ready to go out and do the final tour that maybe we should re-record ‘Stick To Your Guns’ – like re-record nowadays. Back then we had barely two cents to put together to record itâ¦ or maybe we were going to screw it up, so I never really told the band about it.
âI thought that would be a nice way to end what I thought we were ending our career on, ending it with the same song we started it with. Hey, you never know! [Laughs]
âBut, yeah, I talked about London a lot because what was important in London was the passion and the gang mentality that we had.
âAll before MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e. How hard we worked. What we were willing to do without. The sideways pushes we were prepared to do in order to survive.

Later then, Nikki sixx rented Van halen, Eddie Van Halen himself, Randy Rhoads. He also mentioned his pre-MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e era and explained why no label company signed them. At the end of his words, Nikki sixx admitted that his group Motley Crue and the members changed her life forever.
“Around that time too, in 1976, Van Halen, the biggest band in Los Angeles, blew up and left, and they changed the music scene forever because no one had ever seen a guitarist like that. [Eddie Van Halen], ” Sixx keep on going.
âThen you had Quiet Riot with Randy Rhodes, and Quiet Riot signed two contracts with Japanese records. They didn’t have a good cast, but in LA they were like that. I’d go see them and all that.
âThen there was London, my band, and when we had Nigel Benjamin, who was the guy who replaced Ian Hunter in Mott The Hoople, that band was Queen meets Bowie meets T. Rex.
âWe couldn’t be stopped because they wanted us to do our hair like Flock of Seagulls or handclaps like U2 and Go-Go do and we were like ‘No that’s who we are!’
âNo record company signed us, and when Capitol Records, my own uncle passed on to us, Nigel Benjamin with such talent didn’t have the courage to stay together and continue working, so he left the band. . I wasn’t going to go back to Idaho and work on a fucking farm again. I had a dream and kept going, and it’s important for people to understand that.
âBad shit happens to good people, but you have to keep going. In fact, you might have to work harder than the next guy, and if I hadn’t continued I would never have formed MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e. I would never have met Tommy, Vince or Mickâ¦ and they changed my life forever.
