“I miss part of the slop”

In a recent interview with classic rock magazine, Motley Crue bassist and main songwriter Nikki Sixx lamented the current state of music, calling most of what he hears today “extremely overproduced”

“My criticism is that it is extremely overproduced in many cases,” 6x said. “It’s ProTooled to death, it’s cut to death, and I’m missing some of the slop. I miss some of the flat notes. I miss it when a guitarist isn’t exactly perfect. I kinda miss some nuts and bolts of just being in a raw rock and roll band. That being said, there are some cool bands that come out and just go into the studio and cut it pretty much live on the floor, and that’s real – you can feel it, they mean it.”

Motley Crue will set off on a massive stadium tour this summer with Def Leppard, Poisonand Joan Jett. The tour was originally scheduled for 2020, but was canceled due to the pandemic.

“I’m so excited about the stadium tour, us and Def Leppard and Poison and Joan Jett in America, and we are looking [into doing international dates]and when we can.” But 6x also revealed another compelling rock sighting. “It’s funny, the only time I really dug and listened Motley Crue is while we are preparing a show; you kind of go through the albums and stuff like that.”

“I dug on YouTube and watched some of the old videos, and I guess it could all be considered embarrassing, because rock and roll is embarrassing – as it should be. We should be ridiculous, we should be outrageous, we should be pushing envelopes and we should be rebelling against each other.We’re supposed to be loud and rude and in your face.
