Nikki Sixx has spoken out again about the ongoing row between Mötley Crüeand KISS. Last month Sixx had a lot to say about KISS copying the stage design and production of Mötley Crüe’s final tour.
That being said, Sixx has had a slight change of heart and is not pointing the finger at KISS anymore, this time around it’s the production company they’re both working with.
Sixx told SiriusXM, that Crüe had“misdirected their anger” when lashing out at KISS. He said: “We’ve got no problems with KISS,” adding: “You know who we had a little bit of a problem with? This company—I’m not even going to give them props naming them. We’ve worked with them a long time with our production manager and they’ve done stuff with us that’s really cool, like Tommy’s roller coaster and different versions of that.”
Sixx also pointed out that the band had also got it wrong with regards to Travis Scott as well. It was Tommy Lee this time that had called out Scott’s stage design before realizing the same production company were hired by him also. Sixx explained: “Then, they give the same thing to Travis Scott and Tommy was bummed,” adding: “But we misdirected our anger. He was mad as Travis Scott—he probably didn’t even know that we did that however many years ago. Then, my thing was they’re using the same arms that we developed. But you know what? Not shame on KISS, not shame on Travis Scott—shame on the company for doing that. We will never work with them again.”
He expanded: “I saw a video [of KISS] and they were using our arms. It was exactly our shtick. I just think it’s uncool—I think it’s uncool of the company to make the same thing again for them,” adding: “I don’t know, it just bothers me. “It was our last tour on Earth, and something that people have posters of on their walls is now being repeated by KISS. Sure, we all use pyro and stuff, but with this, we re-invented an idea. And this was our idea.”
