It has been two years since Mötley Crüe officially ended, despite many wishing for a surprise reunion. Since then, each member moved on, focusing on their own projects. For instance, bassist Nikki Sixx with his band Sixx:A.M., who recently released 2016’s Prayers for the Blessed, Vol. 2. However, aside from writing new tunes, it looks like Sixx is putting his touring days to rest. At least, for now. The bassist revealed the following on his Facebook:
“For those of you asking, I’ve been playing in bands and touring the world for 40 years…I have no immediate tour plans unless I get a wild hair up my ass or something or somebody really inspirational comes along…Since I’ve been home I’ve just been writing music non stop,recording with other artists,taking vocal, bass and guitar lessons and focusing on photography….Money has never been and isn’t a driving force for me…Let the chips fall where they fall…So I guess I’m unofficially retired or maybe just expired at this time…Nice to give 100% of my time to my wife and kids….
Got a couple SixxAm albums coming out soon and 1 book this year…Sixx Sense radio is the biggest syndicated radio show in the world and that going on 8 years….I got 2 books in the works and I am in talks to develop a TV show ( not reality) as well as The Dirt for Netflix and The Heroin Diaries Play….YUP, I AM RETIRED..HAHA”
