NikkiSixx400 Bassist Nikki Sixx has bit back at Stryper singer Michael Sweet’s claims that Motley Crue’s biography is full of tall tales.

Crue bass player Sixx responded to Sweet’s swipe by posting a message on Facebook, claiming that the Stryper frontman had no right to comment on his experiences and his battle with drug addiction.

His post reads: “Non addicts talking shit about people who have fought for their lives to beat their addiction…..‪#‎MichaelSweet‬ #‎OhHeHasABookForSale? #‎GodBlessTheChildrenOfTheBeast #SobrietyRocks #‎Sad.”

In a previous interview with Music Enthusiast, Sweet claimed Motley Cure’s official biography The Dirt – Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band and Sixx’s own memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star were “stretched.”

In the interview, to plug his own book Honestly: My Life And Stryper Revealed, Sweet says: “Is it as controversial as Motley Crue? No, but I think half of what we hear about Motley Crue is BS anyway, like when you hear stories about Nikki Sixx dying three times and whatnot. It’s, like, how stretched is that?

Half of the stuff I read in these autobiographies I just kind of roll my eyes at, because I just think that a lot of these guys just did so many drugs and drank so much booze that their minds aren’t too clear in terms of remembering the past exactly as it went down.”

Sweet is not the first to question the credibility of Sixx’s book. Former member John Corabi previously said he found it hard to believe someone on heroin would be capable of keeping a diary.

    You can blame liberals for turning many Americans into a bunch of whiny pussies! Ted Nugent for President baby!!!!

    Motley Crue has 2 good records. The first 2. That’s it. If I were Nikki, I wouldn’t be upset at Michael Sweet. I’d be upset that my lead singer can’t carry a tune to save his life…

      only 2 good records? what about DR. FEELGOOD?

    • DR on

      He said ‘good records’ doug r. Welcome back. How was your time away? I myself would’ve stood up for Theatre of Pain, minus Home Sweet Home. That album didn’t get the love the other Crue albums did. But I kinda ‘doug’ it. See what I did there?

    • doug r. on

      theatre of pain is good too, but in my opinion & many others, dr. feelgood is better. is that you dr? are you still looking for work? too bad you couldn’t make it down to atlantic city last weekend, I could have used somebody to carry my bags.

    • DR on

      I have my wife’s bags to carry when we travel. But thanks for the offer. I pray you’re better at gambling than you are at musical commentary or defending yourself. Please feel free to NARC to Dana now.

    • doug r. on

      musical commentary, defending myself? your life must really suck if that’s all you got. I knew more about music before I was 10 than you’ll ever know in your pathetic lifetime. now, please feel free to narc to your wife now.

    I read both Sixx’s and the Crue’s book and wondered how much of it was BS.
