Mötley Crüe Heading For Biggest Years Of Their Career!

Nikki Sixx - Motley Crue

After Vince Neil’s statement that the February 2012 concerts could be the end of his time with Mötley Crüe, Nikki Sixx has now gone on record to say that Crüe‘s 'cabaret' shows in Las Vegas is only scratching the surface of what he believes, "will be the biggest probably four to five years of the band’s career."

Sixx told Rolling Stone, "We’re negotiating with a couple of other extremely huge bands on doing a co-headline tour, something that’s never happened before. There’s new music in the future." He also claimed that, "every one of his band brothers is 100 percent engaged in the process."

Depending on who you are listening to in Crüeworld, i.e. Sixx rather than Neil, then there’s also supposed to be a forthcoming Mötley Crüe movie.

Sixx claimed, "We finally got everything in order the way it needs to be done, and that’s gonna happen."

The bassist didn't go into specifics, but said that the movie will be based on ‘The Dirt’ and declared, "But trust me, when I say the wheels are in motion they’re definitely in motion."

Sixx did mention the end of Crüe but thinks it's further down the road than Neil saying, "The band sat down and had a pow-wow as brothers and friends and guys who’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and we said, ‘When is it time?’ We’ve always said since we were kids we didn’t want to hobble in to the sunset. So after the movie, at some point, whether it’s within a year or a few years, we’re probably gonna have that conversation about maybe it’s time, maybe it’s time to go out on top. If I’m watching my favorite boxer and he’s just won the heavyweight championship of the world and he retires it kind of makes the guy a legend. I always respected Led Zeppelin, and I’d rather Mötley Crüe be thought of as that type of band rather than a band that’s just going through the motions."

This latest contrary PR 'leak' seems to be at odds with Vince Neil's comments and only serves to compound the cynics assertions that everything is now just a publicity stunt for what is proving to be an unpopular direction for Mötley Crüe!
