Nikki Sixx says Motley Crue will continue to be engaged with their fans despite having called it quits at the start of the year.

The bassist says the band’s legacy is too big to simply walk away, adding: “There’s going to be Motley in your life for a long time.”

Motley Crue played their last ever gig on New Year’s Eve, and the performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles was filmed for an upcoming DVD release.

Sixx tells One On One With Mitch Lafon: “We have a live DVD of our last performance ever that we’ve just finished mixing. It looks fantastic. It was a great show.

“We have a legacy that needs to be curated. We have vintage merchandise. We plan on obviously staying engaged with our fans.

“It’s not like we’re simply going to disappear. The Motley Crue movie will come out. There’s going to be Motley in your life for a long time. In one way or another.”

Sixx AM, in which Sixx is joined by James Michael and DJ Ashba, this week took aim at youTube, calling on the web service to pay artists a fair share for streaming their music and showing their videos.

Sixx AM issue their latest album Prayers For The Damned on April 29 (Friday). They have a number of tour dates lined up for 2016.
