NIKKI SIXX On Calling POISON 'Fake Bullshit': 'It's Nothing Personal'

MÖTLEY CRÜE/BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION bassist Nikki Sixx has posted a message downplaying his previous comments regarding his feelings for proposed touring partners POISON.

In a Feb. 27 posting, Sixx shot down reports that BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION will be touring this summer with POISON and KISS, saying, "No way in fucking hell would we (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION or MÖTLEY CRÜE) ever, ever tour with a fucking band like POISON. We have had talks with KISS and I told them very clearly that we would not do the tour if they used POISON. That would be the death of us... I will not be attached to that kind of fake bullshit..."

Elaborating on his previous post, Sixx wrote on CRÜE's official web site today (March 2), "On the tour front, yes, KISS's manager told me we had the tour if we wanted it. I did explain to them it would depend on who is the special guest. We really appreciate such a cool offer, but it's important for us to feel comfortable with the package. Sometimes you tour for the betterment of the package, but as a new band we are trying to *like* the packages. I freaked when I saw it was announced that POISON was part of the tour because I told them that was not an option for the BRIDES. As far as my opinion, it isn't personal. They're cool guys and I have no beef with them as people. I JUST DON'T wanna tour with the band."
