NIKKI SIXX On MÖTLEY CRÜE Reunion: 'I Would Do This Shit For Free'

In a recent interview with the U.K.'s Observer newspaper, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx seemed more sensitive than the other bandmembers to the accusation that they are only back together to pick up a final paycheck. "What does money have to do with anything?" he asked the interviewer.

"When you see [boxer] Lennox Lewis get $14 million for a fight, do you say he's doing it for the money? Of course not, 'cause he's got the fucking eye of the tiger. He wants to kill his opponent. That's me. I'd do this shit for free."

Sixx's response seemed to directly contradict the answer CRÜE guitarist gave Metal Edge magazine early last month when he was asked why he thinks MÖTLEY is getting back together right now. "Greed," Mick replied. "Not on my part. And I won't say on everyone else's part, but there is greed around me. There's greed in everything, though, not just this. It's everywhere."
