nikkisixx In a recent backstage interview with Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, the bassist told‘s Bryget Chrisfield that the band’s existence is slowly winding down to a screeching halt.

“I wanna finish our movie (adaptation of Motley Crue’s New York Times bestselling collaborative autobiography The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band) and put out a new album,” he revealed before adding they will also release a soundtrack to the movie and then embark on “a farewell tour.” “We’ll be back in Australia and, ah, that’ll be it,” he said. “I can honorably say, ‘We did it our way and we’re never coming back’.”

Sixx said the split would be their final chapter and that he has no interest in resurrecting the band once it is over.

“It’s important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse’s head, and it goes down, it’s not a plastic bullet it’s a fucking shotgun blast. You know, blow its fucking brains out, it’s never coming back. It has to (be that way),” he stressed. “It’s the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That’s it. So when we take our final bow, it’s IT. I will cry. I cry thinking about it.”

Motley Crue have been raising musical hell for more than three decades and Sixx admits, “I love this band. I fucking spent my life doing this band. I’ve been doing this band longer than I’ve been doing anything else. And I’ve been in this band longer than I’ve known any woman, longer than I’ve known my children — only my family, and I have a closer relationship with my band than I have with my family, and a rockier relationship with my band than I’ve had with anybody in my family as well.

So it’s very emotional and I just think it’s important that we finish what we started and then, you know, it will be whatever it will be. It could be beautiful. It could be a beautiful ending! When you go and see a great movie — I’ll leave you with this: when you go and see a great fucking movie and it ends and you go, ‘Fuck!’ like, you walk out and you go, ‘That was amazing! That blew my mind!’ It’s not like, ‘That blew my mind and, um, maybe there’ll be a sequel to it’.”

    I’m not a crue fan but, why commit to ending it ?
    Whats the point of saying its over forever ?

    I can understand taking a break, but this past summer tour was one of the best ! Your fans love seeing you out there raising havoc! We Love tour Music! We love you guys !! Reconsider and just take a vacation for a while. Never say never Nikki<3.

    This sounds like Nikki; he sees Motley as a story, an epic tale, and every story deserves a good ending. That being said, Motley is a business and it doesn’t make much sense to conclusively claim that it’s over, because you never know, you might end up needing the income…

    Yep. Complete bullshit. He’s a businessman, I’ll give him that. He’s obviously learned a thing or two from guys like Kiss. I love the Crue but Nikki you’d probably keep this band going even if you were the only original member. This is just another money-making ploy to help sell their movie and upcoming tour. Damn, I knew times were tough but I figured Nikki didnt need money that bad.

    Great band with great memories of my life during their prime. No offense Tommy NEW TATOO was one of the best comeback albums ever. Rock on boys. Enjoy
