Nikki Sixx says seeing Vince Neil in tears at Motley Crue’s last ever show was “really special.”
The frontman couldn’t hold back his emotions as the band bid farewell to a 34-year-career with a gig in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve. And the bassist says he knew how much it meant to Neil, as he’d only ever seen him cry a handful of times down the years.
Sixx tells CBC: “Vince cried, which I thought was really special, because I had seen Vince only cry a few times. That was really nice to see that.
“I felt ready. I felt proud. When I walking to the stage, I was, like, ‘We did it.’ When we played at The Starwood on January 17, 1981, nobody cared. We couldn’t get a record deal.
“And I was able to walk on that stage and go, ‘This is the last night on earth for Motley Crue, and I’m really proud of where we’re at.’ And I wasn’t sad. I was in the moment.”
