Nikki Sixx Leaps Into Crowd In Fury At Filming

Motley Crue didn't appear happy when a proffesional camera man took footage of their set at Outlaw Jam last weekend.

Nikki Sixx Leaps Into Crowd In Fury At Filming
0
Motely Crue bassist Nikki Sixx was furious when he spotted a fan filming their show at Maryland's Outlaw Jam at the weekend, taking matters into his own hands and jumped into the crowd to confiscate it, as you can see in the clip below. After completing "Saints Of Los Angeles", Sixx leaped off the stage to take the professional camera, with security guards removing the cameraman from the crowd and helping the bassist back to the stage, according to Rock AAA. "Taking care of f--king business!", shouted drummer Tommy Lee after the incident. Presumably, the band were unhappy that someone may profit from a high-quality video of their performance. It is not the first time a rock star has acted against someone in the crowd "illegally" taking their image. In 1991, Axl Rose famously jumped into the crowd to take a regular still camera from a fan, before walking off stage and cancelling the show. As a result, dozens of fans were injured after dismay in the crowd led to a riot.

    Nikki is the bass player, ultimate guitar news is written by monkeys or something to not know that....

    I once saw a bunch of hookers on the street, but when I got closer, I realized it was just Motley Crue.

    I hate Sixx. Let's write a CD and book about my drug problem! That's never been done to death right? He's not badass, he's a bitch with a lot of money and still dresses like he thinks he's 16.

    I love this band to death but I see post on his fb thing that him and Tommy hate this stuff honestly who cares there taking pictures and vids of memories to show everyone

    Tommy was posted something about how camera's ruin shows just the other day. he said they defeat the purpose of going to a show because you end up watching it through a tiny screen and they remove the specialness of a show. this had nothing to do with money

    so you give us the time frame?

    THIS. I mean, I dont hate him, but that is immensely douchey to bitch about something that probably wont even cause that big of a problem.

    What an idiot, the guy wasn't gonna make much money off of it, if anything he was probably going to put it on youtube. I just went to KISS, the most money hungry band ever and every single person in the crowd had cameras. They didn't seem too worried about it.

    nikki sixx? haha...more...like...hahaha.....Nikki Dicks.....HA! Thank you and goodnight

    Hmmmm.... the crowd seemed to be behind him on this one. Dunno. Maybe there's a little more to it?
    Superperfex
    His actions weren't right, but the reason was. Pro camera recording equipment at shows, that isn't sponsored is basically "bootleg movies." It's not about the band making money, its about the little guys that work at video recording companies for bands that need the money.

    does he really need to be that much of a douche even though he's got millions of dollars? btw, i like how someone else in the crowd is filming it...just proves Sixx is a little bitch

That fan was inconsiderate of those around him/her....obstructing everyone's view. It's one thing snapping pictures/videotaping with a cell cam, or mini-digi cam...it's another thing when it's a DSLR or a pro-cam. It's like an all-you-can-eat buffet...you paid to eat all you want, ON PREMISES, not take it home with you.
    That last bit is a pretty bad example considering every all-you-can-eat buffet I've been too has allowed me and my friends/family to bring w/e we want back home with no problems.

He got arrested afterwards, so I don't see why the same thing didn't happen to Nikki Sixx. Read the damn article. He didn't beat anybody up, he took away a camera that shouldn't have been there... INB4 "Burt I dud reads it!"
    He still took the damn camera. It didn't belong to him, and just because it was at his show doesn't give him to right to take it. The guy should have been told to put the camera up, not assaulted. So I think my point still stands, he should face some sort of charge.
    da_
    It wasn't that he didn't want them filming or taking pictures because they thought they would go and sell them. Its that Motley Crue hate people standing there watching the show through camera screens and making everone else behind them have to as well. They want the croud to be there having fun and rocking out insteed of trying to film it.
    skrapetopolis
    what a tool, and im talking about nikki sixx not the dude with the camera, get over yaself and let people film it, half the phones have better quality camera's than proper video camera these days anyway, gonna be a mad c*nt are take all the people phones away too, and to sum it up, once again....TOOL!!
    DimebagZappa
    I would stomp that little washed up heroin addict if he took my camera. What a loser. Maybe he was taking quality footage as a keepsake... not everyone is so money hungry. Except Motley Crue and Gene Simmons of course. Btw... Nikki is a girls name you putz.

    So who the **** is he to tell "me" how to watch a concert?
    Tyler.Allain
    Losers. You really care that much if someone takes a really shitty quality piece of footage of you? They are most likely going to use it to show off to their friends that they were at the concert...meaning free promotion...***** rockstars.

    I always record a few songs when I go to a concert, but it's on my small Kodak camera. Still HD quality, but not professional. It's different when someone uses a professional camera. I only record some songs as a keepsake, to relive the experience (somewhat) when I get home, and I might catch something cool on video. This dude was most likely going to try to make some cash from his video.
    MellowMeadow
    I found it ironic, that somebody was taking a video with a camera, while all of this happened. I probably misued ironic.

    All you 'tough guys' claiming to want to punch or kick Nikki's ass..... Line up boys, Nikki's no pussy, he can handle himself. It's Motley Crue's show,copywrited and registered, they own it. They call the shots, Nikki was correct, a little out of line but correct.
    Zanon
    Seems like a twat to me. He should be greatful all those people came and someone decided to film it to take home because it was a memorable occasion... Talk about taking your fans for granted

    And then there's the people who just want to leave a smart-ass observation..

    That's embarrassing and shows that they are just seeing dollars signs.. A 50 year old man stealing someones camera because they think he might make money off it? Come on..

    true dat. im pretty sure theyve always been like that
    judo_john
    yeah, because he got 1 dude and their camera, he got every1 did he? Just because he spotted 1 person, doesn't mean that was every1. People video gigs. get over it.

    because no1 gives a ****..... Probably prefer if Nikki Sixx was the singer, because then you'd hear no more pish about Vince Neil.
    da_
    Also this artical is useless. Not the singer, not only him and Axl have done this and the writer shouldn't make presumptions. And the fact that he took the camera that didn't belong to him has nothing to do with it. He gave the camera to the sicurity who should have confiscated it before this even happend.

    Money for nothing and your videos for free. See the little f***** with the earring and the make up. Yeah buddy, that's his own hair. The little f***** got his own jet airplane. The little f***** is a millionaire.

    So since others have written about drugs, he isn't allowed to express himself? They were good albums. You're dumb.
