Nikki would like to make new music with Mötley Crüe
Elsewhere in the interview, the musician was asked if he wanted to make new music with his band. Motley crue. Although previously said that he ain’t gonna do a decade together with the group, Sixx has now stated that he wants to make new music with Motley Crue.
“I would love to make music with the guys again” Sixx said. “I would like to get really simple and really raw and really dirty.
“And that’s something that inspires me now, whether it’s a new band or stuff that I listen to and the simplicity of ‘Black Dog’, and you listen to that, and you’re, like ‘Man…’
“Some of the stuff that’s coming out right now is so good, but it’s also so overproduced. I don’t feel like when I listen to genre music or just in the rock world, Black Sabbath had the same bass drum sound as Led Zeppelin, the same bass drum sound as Aerosmith, the same guitar sound – they all sounded the same guitar.
“It bothers me that so many things sound the same, but it’s also really good – really good hooks, really aggressive, really exciting.”
Later then, Nikki sixx praised the rock band Greta Van Fleet and said he liked to hear their music.
“And so when I hear younger bands – like, people go to throw on Greta Van Fleet, for example,” Sixx keep on going.
“What everyone liked was that it was just simple, raw and passionate, that first EP.”
