The Sad Truth…

Mötley Crüe have officially retired as a band. They went out in the classiest way possible performing “Home Sweet Home” at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as with singer Vince Neil fighting through tears throughout the entire song. Fans were certainly under the impression that the band ended on good terms. However, it appears that that may not have been the case.

In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Nikki Sixx opened up about the final days of Mötley Crüe and how unfortunately it didn’t necessarily end on the best terms. Here is what he had to say.

“Well, it’s been a while since I’ve seen any of my Crue bandmates. It didn’t really end that amicably. I’ve always been the sort of person who wants to create art, and there are musicians who don’t want to make records anymore because they don’t make any money from them. I don’t understand that attitude at all, and I think some of the guys in Motley just had a different idea to me in how we should be. But I’m very grateful. You know, ending our career playing “Home Sweet Home” at The Staples Center in our hometown. That’s an unbelievable way to go out.”

It’s certainly sad to hear that Mötley Crüe didn’t go out as friends like we all thought, but who knows what the future holds for these fine musicians? Stranger things have happened in the world of rock & roll, and I can honestly say that nothing would delight me more than to see one more Mötley Crüe reunion!
