Nikki Sixx claims he’s been told that Motley Crue will never be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Nikki revealed it in an interview with Kerrang! after Tommy Lee was asked if he could ever envision the band members playing live together again. He answered that “maybe if we got into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame or something, we could dust off a couple of our old classics.” Sixx followed with the bad news, “‘Why not?’ But we don’t have any plans because we were told by the Hall Of Fame that we would never get in, because of how we’ve acted, so that’s kind of it.”
Speaking of the band’s behavior, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider weighed in on it after watching The Dirt. Snider replied to a fan’s question about the movie by saying that while he knows and likes the guys in Motley Crue, he has “lived and conducted [his] personal life completely opposite of them.” He says he’s not judging them for it, but that he made a choice and “chose my path because I didn’t see the one they were on as righteous.”
He added that he finds it very hard “to view any of these bio-pics fairly” because he knows too much of the behind-the-scenes and truths. He says he felt the same way about Bohemian Rhapsody,” he “couldn’t watch it objectively.”
Finally, The Dirt soundtrack enters the Billboard 200 album chart at number-10 this week, with just under 30,000 equivalent units, half of which were in actual album sales. It’s the group’s ninth Top 10 album and first since their last release, Saints of Los Angeles, in 2008.
