Mötley Crüe told that will never get into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because of the way they acted
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx was recently interviewed by Kerrang and spoke about the band playing together again in the future.
In regard to whether fans will ever get to see Mötley Crüe play live again, Sixx advised: “I was actually doing an interview with Tommy [Lee, drummer] a couple of weeks ago, and we were asked if we would ever play together again. And Tommy said, ‘I don’t know. Maybe if we got into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame or something, we could dust off a couple of our old classics.’ I was, like, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Why not?’ But we don’t have any plans because we were told by the Hall Of Fame that we would never get in, because of how we’ve acted, so that’s kind of it.”
In terms of whether they would ever consider touring as a band again, Sixx opined: “Well, I don’t know. We haven’t had that conversation. I mean, we wrapped up for a reason. I don’t know – I keep saying a hard no to that, but if something came up, like we were invited to play the Super Bowl half-time show, maybe that’d be something we’d be interested in doing. But touring has never been a conversation, and we do talk about stuff all the time.”
Finally, on whether or not the Mötley Crüe band members remain friends after all that they have been through, Sixx replied: “Erm… I think that me and Tommy and Vince are very close right now. Mick is very quiet and so we never see him. But right now there’s no problems. (Laughing) Things are fine.”
