MTLEY CRE Bassist Comments On SARNIA BAYFEST Controversy

Tara Hagan of The Sarnia Observer reports: MTLEY CRE has a message for Sarnia [Ontario, Canada] councillor Dave Boushy and his objection to their upcoming performance at Sarnia Bayfest [music festival taking place this July in Sarnia].

Speaking via conference call Wednesday, rock's bad boys jumped at the opportunity to comment on Boushy's claim their off-stage antics are pornographic.

"He's right," said bass player Nikki Sixx. "People like him are always out to attack rock and roll, you know. God bless them, man. They keep our name in the press and re-ignite our passion to hold up our middle finger to all those people who really don't understand."

"If that's how these people have to get a little press, then that's their problem," said Sixx, who then used a common expletive to describe the councillor.

Last month, the 78-year-old Boushy sparked a furor after he suggested that the bands sexual exploits and shocking behavior could damage Sarnia's image.

He called for a motion that the city have a say in which acts perform at the annual summer festival.
