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.

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.

    so he jumps out to confiscate a camera, and what happens next? everyone else pulls out their cameras and phones to film it... wtf?

    So many idiots here it's hilarious. A million and one of you need to understand the difference between a phone camera and a professional camera.. Ever listen to a concert recorded with a phone? You can't really.. What I want to know is how the guy was even allowed to bring the camera in.. Do your job security, we could've had the situation dealt with way before Nikki had to go stage diving.

    Good to see that Tommy Lee is still stuck in perpetual adolescence. "Takin' care of ****in' business" lol sounds like something my friend's 16-year-old little brother would say.

    Its totally forgivable. If Vince Neil was my singer I wouldn't want any bootleg videos of my live performance either. Its hard to sound good when you have a dying horse making sounds over your instruments.

    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!"

    They're all still young at heart. Nothing ever forced them to grow up and you wish you were the same way.

    yeah I'm pretty sure there's a difference between 240p video with shitty audio that's clipped to hell and 1080p video with great audio that is pro-shot quality.. People need to get their heads out of their asses and read

    I'm pretty sure he's on drugs again. He pretty much told the crowd in SLC he was.

    Yup. Sorry about that. We're cool now, right though?

    yeah, I mean at least Axl asked the security to get the guy

    Especially considering the guy from Gym Class Heroes had a much better reason. In my opinion.

    I would personally feel honored if someone tape recorded my performance and I would even shake the guy's hand and thank him for helping to get my name out there. Nikki must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day. It's not like the guy had a camera crew and were going to make a legit DVD. It's called a bootleg.

    Nikki is about twenty years late to jump on this train. Attacking fans from the stage is so 1991.

    dude shut up, you're like the only one taking Nikki's side here, he's an old bag now who cries over people recording him play. He should be happy he still has a ****ing audience the Crue are so dried up..people are going to record you whether you like it or not, you can't just jump into a crowd and single one person out of thousands who are doing the same thing that he doesn't happen to see.

    Nikki Sixx is BASSIST! Not singer. That's Vince Neil... how can you make such a blatant error?!

    Seriously who would buy the video. I think a little overactive on their part all they need to do was tell security and be done with it. Now they have one less fan well probably more after people read this article

    yea but if you punched his face in he would probably die again and then have to ressurect himself via adrenalin shots....kick start my heart.....

    That's very disrespectful to the people putting money in his bank account. Nikki Sixx should be flattered that the guy in the crowd still liked his glitter-metal music enough to spend his money on a ticket, as well as energy/time in the crowd filming it twenty or thirty years after Motley Crue were young enough to be convincing/not embarrassing while they play. Seriously, what bad was going to come out of it? Was somebody on YouTube going to see a slightly higher quality version of the same shitty live Motley songs they could find played the same way a million times over anyways? Nikki Sixx not only looks like some low-intelligence skanky trailer-trash chick, but acts like one too.

    if you're going to lunge yourself into the crowd, at least pull your trousers up...

    yea , or lack of a$$. looks like some one chopped off his cheeks. And whats up with the make up...looks like he is trying out for KISS or something.....

    No man in his 50s should have that haircut. I'd film it too. What a spectacle.

    All the whining about the camera aside, how come a 'rockstar' from the 80s has the hair and name of a 15 year old scene girl?
