Nikki Sixx undergoes second shoulder surgery

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is recovering from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

"I officially have 5 cadaver parts in the body now,” says Sixx via social media alongside some photos from the hospital. “Finally got the right shoulder repaired. All the rotators were completely torn off the bone.

“I seem to think it’s a good idea to break things on stage and therefore I am always broken. Left knee fixed. Left rotator cuff and bicep fixed. Hip fixed. Double hernia fixed. And as I said before, right shoulder fixed.

“Excited to heal up,”
he adds. “Health is everything. Ready to get onstage and break stuff."

It’s the second shoulder fix for Sixx and follows a similar procedure he underwent in 2017, just a few months after hip replacement surgery.

Sixx and Motley Crue continue to make headlines with the success of their Netflix biopic, “The Dirt.”

Based on the band’s 2001 memoir of the same name, the film is directed by Jeff Tremaine and follows the group’s rise from the Los Angeles club scene to headline-making international stardom.

The soundtrack recently earned Motley Crue their first appearance in the US Top 10 in a decade when it debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
