Motley Crue: Nikki Sixx Australian tour journal day 3

Motley Crue played their first Australian show with KISS and Thin Lizzy on Thursday in Perth, the first of 8 dates in the country.

Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is posting a tour journal, and shares his thoughts on his Australian adventure.

Day 3 Australian tour journal

Yesterday was a travel day for the band. We flew in from Perth to Adelaide arriving around 10 pm.I ran into Kerry King and the guys from Slayer at the airport. They’re playing the Soundwave festival tonight with Metallica, Linkin Park and a bunch of other bands. Probably gonna pop over and watch some metal go down big time later…( did someone say rock was dead?)

Stayed up late last night playing bass and guitar. Just enjoying myself a “little middle of the night” piece and quite with no phone calls or emails interrupting. James sent through another track from the new Sixx:A.M. album for me to track bass on, so that’s what I am up to for the next few hours. As beautiful as it is outside here in Adelaide today I think I’m just gonna hang in the room, finish off this song and then send to it James to lay into the session back in Nashville.

The way Sixx:A.M. is recording this album is we all get together and write the songs face to face and then record it in pieces. Sometimes we’re together and sometimes we’re in separate towns ( and countries ) since none of us live in the same city. It’s really the best of both worlds creatively. This album is another leap into the adventurous and, to be honest, I don’t think any of us know what this album will actually end up sounding like and for some odd reason I think we really like the idea of that. I hope we can to find the time and a way for us to tour behind this album. Would this be something that would wet your fancy?

Tomorrow its back to Motley and our 2nd show…Can’t wait for that but for now, back to recording in my room.
