Nikki Sixx accuses Andy McCoy of trying to sell an album, book or club tour at his expense
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has fired back at former Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy‘s comments that the former’s books being full of lies.
Sixx‘s books consist of the New York Times best sellers Mötley Crüe: The Dirt – Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band (2001) (along with his Mötley Crüe bandmates Vince Neil, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars), The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star (2007) and The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx (2021).
In a recent interview with IndiePower (see video footage below), McCoy stated (as reported by Blabbermouth):
“I’m not a farm boy like Nikki Sixx; I’m from the inner city. And I can’t stand bullshit — like his books; [they’re] full of lies. I saved the guy’s life.”
Sixx took to Twitter earlier today with the following reply: “Andy Mcoy has been on a rant saying I never thanked him for saving my life after a heroin overdose. It’s true. I also never thanked him for getting me the drug’s during my deadly addiction that night..I get it, he’s just trying to sell a book ,a album or club tour…”
McCoy has just released a covers album titled Jukebox Junkies earlier this month.
