MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX:A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx underwent surgery on Tuesday (July 25) to repair a torn rotator cuff. He posted a couple of post-operation photos and the following message on Facebook: "Rotator and torn bicep fixed. Doctor did a great job."
This is the second major surgery of 2017 for Sixx, who previously underwent a two-hour hip replacement procedure in early April.
According to TMZ, Sixx is in talks with "American Idol" about joining the judges panel. The producers of the singing competition show and ABC want the bassist as the third judge on the rebooted program, which will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
Sixx said last month that he was "unofficially retired" from touring, explaining that "money has never been and isn't a driving force for me." He added that it was "nice to give 100 percent of my time to my wife and kids."
He did indicate that he has two new SIXX:A.M. albums in the works, as well as two books, an adaptation of the MÖTLEY CRÜE memoir "The Dirt" for Netflix and a stage version of his own autobiography, "The Heroin Diaries".
Sixx toured with MÖTLEY CRÜE one last time in 2015, with the band performing a total of 164 shows to close out its career.
The past few years, he has focused on SIXX:A.M., which initially started as a musical offshoot of "The Heroin Diaries" but turned into an actual band. Its latest albums, "Prayers For The Blessed" and "Prayers For The Damned", came out in 2016.
