Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx undergoes double hernia operation

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx underwent a double hernia operation on Wednesday.

“I have been performing during the last few months with a pretty intense double hernia but you gotta give 100% even through the pain onstage,” posted Sixx. “The good news is yesterday I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well. My lovely wife, kids and Leica have been really taking care of me. I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in 6 weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all back out on the road..”

“PS..Holy Jesus, it feels like I got kicked in the stomach by a horse,” he added. “They gave me some pain meds but I am trying to not take them and luckily Courtney Bingham-Sixx looks pretty hot in her nurse outfit…”

Sixx and Motley Crue wrapped up the first leg of their farewell tour at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Centre outside of Buffalo, New York last weekend.

The group returns to action October 10 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Crue’s 6-week break will be interrupted by an appearance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 19

North American dates will wrap up November 22 in Spokane, Washington.
