MÖTLEY CRÜE's NIKKI SIXX: 'We're Going To Win The SUPER BOWL, And We're Going To F**king Leave'

January 26, 2015

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx spoke to GQ.com about the band's decision to call it quits after 2015. "The Final Tour" kicked off last year and will end New Year's Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles after one more round of North American gigs.

"I love MÖTLEY CRÜE, but goddamn does it take a lot of my time up," Sixx said. "It's like being an athlete: You can win Super Bowls, but in the end, you're going to be a quarterback standing on the field, and somebody's going to bust your fucking knee, and you're going to be lying in the middle of the field with 10 million people watching you while you can't get up. And that's a fact of life — but it's not going to be a fact of our life. We're going to win the Super Bowl, and we're going to fucking leave."

When their upcoming retirement was announced last year, the CRÜE actually signed a legal contract saying that they could not go back on their agreement to cease touring. "The only loophole is if all four members agreed to break the contract," Sixx said before adding. "There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again. We'd have so much egg on our face."

To coincide with the announcement of the last show, the band released a new video, "All Bad Things", which includes clips from throughout their career.

Asked by GQ.com if he has accepted that this is all coming to an end, MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars said: "I think that this band has probably given as much as it can to our fans and everything else. I mean, that doesn't mean that MÖTLEY CRÜE itself, the entity or whatever you want to call it, is going to really stop. Let's use Jimi Hendrix, okay? He still has products coming out way after his death."
