Sixx reignites Godsmack feud

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has reignited his long-standing feud with Godsmack, after they're believed to have written their 2010 track Cryin' LIke A Bitch about him.

Sixx has suggested he took personal pleasure in refusing to help Sully Erna and co talk up their next record on his Sixx Sense radio show.

He’s tweeted: “So Godsmack begged to be on SixxSense to promote their shit new album. Good luck touring phone booths. Who’s crying like a bitch now?”

The song was allegedly inspired by a backstage scene while Godsmack were on tour with Crue – although Erna has always refused to confirm exactly who it was about, saying: “It was more about just being fed up with prima donnas and certain rock stars.”

Meanwhile, the Motley man has confirmed Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins will make a guest appearance on the upcoming Sixx AM album, saying: “Really excited. What a fucking honour – he is one of my favourite drummers.”

Crue will commence their farewell tour in July with Alice Cooper in support, and they’re also making a movie based on celebrated biography The Dirt. Earlier this week they confirmed the title of what could be their last-ever song.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
