As a bassist? He's boring. As a rock star? He rules. He probably has more money than anyone on talkbass and would be laughing hysterically right now if he new this thread were going. Sometimes it's about the money and sometime's it's about the music. Sometimes you get lucky and do both. To get that many people to buy your albums, he must have done something right. For the record, the first time I picked up a bass Motley Crue was one of my favorite bands. I loved playing "Shout at the Devil". Now, I love playing Botesinni and Bach on my upright and Jamerson on my six string. Anyway I slice it Nikki Sixx figures into my playing...if only just a little.
