During the interview at the recent NAMM Convention in California, Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has spoken about the band and it's future plans. And it's not something most fans would want to hear.
Although the group is currently busy working on a new studio release the Motley Crue farewell tour might be closer than we think. Apparently, the band doesn't want to "beat a dead horse" and would like to go out while still on top of their game.
"We haven't been shy that Motley Crue has been talking about somewhere in the near future doing a farewell tour. We talked about it on 'Piers Morgan' and different interviews. It's not that we hate each other or we don't work together well. I think it's just at some point we want to leave it with some sort of a legacy that's leaving it in a good way. I just see some bands that keep f--king beating a dead horse and I'm like, 'Get off the horse, dude, it's dead.' And Motley Crue is really at one of our highest points we've been and I would like to see us even climb higher by seeing us finish our movie, an album and then maybe announcing a farewell tour and going out at the top. It would be a really nice look

As far as the new album goes, things seem to be cooking up pretty well, with both Sixx and guitarist Mick Mars having "a ton of riffs" at their disposal.
"We've been writing. We started the record with the song 'Sex' and I have a ton of riffs. I know Mick has told me he has a ton of riffs and it's just a matter of now collecting riffs. For a while, it was only writing segments of music and getting together and collaborating but now I'm starting to finish music more like I used to more - like I used to in the old days - and finish it top to bottom. So I look forward to getting in the room with my band and going, 'Here's ten of my ideas, what have you got?' and then we kind of let that process happen."
So is this a right decision? Should they go out in style or keep working and making music together? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.
