: A.M. bassist NIKKI SIXX
has checked in with the following update:
"Spent the morning at the Schecter factory choosing colors for my
new bass for Mötley's Australian tour.We went with vintage white,
tobacco sunburst, metallic red and satin black to start. Thank you for
The rest of the day and night was spent at home writing new Sixx
A.M.music with James Michael. We're really finally at work on our third
album. We do have a name for the album but I assume it will probably
change (like most of the music)....
More music tomorrow..."
At this year's NAMM convention, Sixx
unveiled a new signature bass
line through Schecter Guitar Research. The bass is appropriately called
the "SIXX" bass guitar.
In support of this new bass, Nikki
made an appearance at NAMM,
meeting his fans and signing autographs at the Schecter booth. After
meeting his fans, Nikki sat down with BackstageAxxess and other outlets to talk about the new bass and how it came to fruition.
Says BackstageAxxess: "In addition to this question, BackstageAxxess
asked Nikki about the switch from his longtime company, Gibson, to
Schecter. We also talked about his best selling book Heroin Diaries
becoming a Broadway play and the future of both Mötley Crüe and Sixx:
A.M. Plus, we dove into his success with his current radio show Sixx
Sense which will be celebrating its third anniversary soon. Lastly we
asked how he balances out his current daily schedule. There were
additional questions being asked by other outlets but as you will see,
BackstageAxxess covered all the bases within the limited time we had.
However, we thought our readers would like the full, unedited version of
the conversation with Nikki so we decided to include the entire audio
excerpt with all 4 outlets."
