Is Motley Crue Breaking Up After Losing Guitarist?


For some unknown reason, Niki Sixx has announced that he wants Motley Crue to keep going until the year of our Lord, 2031. Why the year 2031, you may wonder. 2030 is a year where a great many things are set to happen. Apparently, all gasoline cars will be band from the roads for one thing. One other thing that’s for certain, Motley Crue will still be performing if Niki Sixx has anything to do with it.

As per Blabbermouth, Crue bassist Nikki Sixx was asked about the possibility of him and his bandmates writing and releasing new music, or if they will end the band after guitarist Mick Mars quit. He responded (as transcribed by Blabbermouth: “We just did those four songs for ‘The Dirt’ soundtrack. We’re pretty much locked down right now. We’re having conversations beyond [2023]. So what’s ’24 look like for us in a touring capacity? As far as new music — I think new music always comes when the band is getting along. We get along so great right now. We’ve been having the best time. We spend time together. We go out to dinner.

“Tommy Lee just had his 60th-birthday party down in Mexico, and he invited a small group of his very good friends. And I was there, and a bunch of cool Tommy’s friends. All of our wives were there. John 5 came in. And it was just cool to be able to not talk business, be in rehearsal, get on the phone, talk about the photo shoot or the video. It was just hanging out, walking on the beach. And we had some sweet conversations. Me and Tommy and Vince Neil had this conversation. I said, I go,’ What are you guys doing for the next eight years?’ And everybody’s laughing: ‘I don’t know.’ I said, ‘Why don’t we just keep going? Let’s just take it to 50 [years since the band’s inception, which will be in 2031].’
