NIKKI SIXX On His Refusal To Tour With POISON: 'I'm Not Into Followers'
BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION bassist Nikki Sixx (ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE) spoke to the Stamford Advocate about the band's decision to pull out of the KISS tour this summer when they found out that glam rockers POISON were added to the bill.
"I was in negotiations and said it depends who else is on the tour. If you're going to do a nostalgia thing, we're not interested. If you go get JET or THE DARKNESS, it sounds like fun," he said. "All of a sudden they come back with KISS, the BRIDES and POISON! There ain't no way in hell I'm doing that tour. I will not play with fucking POISON. There are followers and leaders. I'm not into followers."
According to Sixx, BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION's lead vocalist, London LeGrand possesses the same quality Nikki saw in CRÜE singer Vince Neil and Tracii Guns (Sixx's BRIDES bandmate) recognized in Axl Rose.
"He's eccentric and he's different and he's a rock star in the way we love rock stars," Sixx says of LeGrand. "He is who he is 24 hours a day and that's unique. People either love you or hate you and that's where you want to be. You don't want to be in the middle." [Read more]
