I Call Bullshit

Earlier this week, Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, SIXX AM) told Harddrive Radio that a tour supporting the Heroin Diaries soundtrack was in the works. I even remarked to Eric yesterday that he should be prepared to go anywhere in the grand old U.S.A. because I will not miss the opportunity to see SIXX AM live.

Just hours ago, a Myspace bulletin from Motley Crue - not Nikki Sixx, not SIXX AM, not the Heroin Diaries - reads like this:

"SIXX:A.M. TOUR PLANS:

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF RUMORS THAT WE MIGHT TOUR. I WANTED YOU TO HEAR FROM US DIRECTLY THAT THERE ARE NO TOUR PLANS AT THIS POINT. THIS IS A VERY MAGICAL PROJECT TO US AND WE DO PLAN ON MAKING OTHER ALBUMS AND THE DREAM WOULD BE TO TOUR SOMEDAY, BUT THAT DAY IS NOT AS CLOSE AS RADIO AND PRESS IS ANNOUNCING.

THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT. - NIKKI"

So, I call bullshit.

Don't tell the press one thing then do another. Plus, why did the bulletin come from MOTLEY CRUE? I get that the Motley Crue page has more friends, but at least send the same bulletin from the Heroin Diaries page. Something's rotten in the state of Demark and I don't like it one bit. I could call Nikki's publicist on Monday, but I'd get the closed-lip runaround: Same 'Ol Situation.

At any rate, here's "Pray for Me" performed at Crash Mansion in Los Angeles.

I wonder if he wants to avoid being called a hypocrite because of the Tommy Lee (Motley's former drummer, remember him?) mess. I had never heard that there would be more than one show, although I liked the album and would like to see them perform live.

Here's what would be funny. If Nikki has been telling everyone how they don't need Tommy, after sueing him for doing outside stuff, and now Vince and Mick were going to sue him over a planned tour with Sixx AM. Motley is broken, as far as I can see. Their popularity came back huge when they got Tommy back, can they not see that ? He's definately the most musical of the bunch ( although Sixx AM is pretty awesome )

Nikki wrote this in a blog on his page before MC posted it as bulletin.
He will milk the whole SIXX AM thing as much as possible anyway...and by not going on tour he makes the audience even want them more...so more albums will be sold and if they do live shows I bet he will do these small "intimate" shows, To get acces for them you prolly gotta buy special editions of the album....
yeah yeah....25% for Running.. but dude is way happier with his 75%!!!

I call bullshit too. On the "live" video. Its not live, its the cd track over the top of live footage.
