Nikki Sixx Chat

A few lucky fans got a chance to chat with Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe, Sixx A.M., and many other lives of infamous fame, through Best Buy Unboxed Chats on Friday July 6, 2012. I was one of those lucky few. I had a chance to ask one of the three questions:

The answers to this question spread around the world in the days following, in particular these sites: Blabbermouth, hennemusic, AntiMUSIC, and Loudwire, but not limited to these sites.

Here were the full text of the first question, which had been truncated due to a 500 character limite on the Best Buy site, and other questions. The last question is from my cousin:

  1. When can we expect to hear a new Motley Crue album of entirely of new material, as new new material has been released by the band since 2008’s, Saints of Los Angeles. KISS whom they are co-headlining this Summer’s tour with will be releasing the much anticipated “Monster” in October, the follow-up to 2009’s “Sonic Boom”. SOLA was such a great comeback album with all original members, it was common thinking that the band would be hitting their stride and recording and releasing more albums.
    (side comment: Shouldn’t more recording be taking place with the ailing health of Mick Mars?)
  2. As both DJ Ashba, who is now the lead guitarist for Guns n Roses, and James Micheal have been instrumental in the success of both SIXX A.M. and SOLA are they going to collaborate on future Motley Crue and SIXX A.M. albums? Also, we can we look forward to another SIXX A.M. album?
  3. Are you ever freaked out, startled, or lose your ability to “perform” when you look down and see your tattoo of Mick Mars staring back at you?
  4. (Former Brides of Destruction guitarist, Tracii Guns, left his band L.A. Guns to join Brides of Destruction, and now has been touring with an alternate version of L.A. Guns, is there any future plans to work with him again on future projects as guitarist?)
  5. Why did you milk your fans with re-releasing the music catalogue as the Crucial Crüe remasters, only to then come out with 2 box sets offering a repackaging of the exact same material a short time after? Is that fan friendly, or a money grab?

We all have many more questions for Nikki Sixx, but these are the only ones that were put together for the chat.

About admin

I live in Austin the capital of Texas and the self proclaimed “Music Capital of the World” with my lovely wife Jenny and our two beautiful children: our son Garrett, and our daughter Grace. We enjoy being together as a family and with other family in the area. We like to try new food and go to our favorite restaurants. We enjoy travel and try to go to an exciting new place every year, as well as visiting existing favorite locations. I also enjoy pursuing passions such as photography. My wife and I love music and listen to Austin musicians and touring bands as much as we are able to now with the little ones. Volunteer work for SXSW and Old Settlers Music Festival. I operate a consulting business, doing freelance business as Matthew Comer and syphonsoft Web Hosting. I have several projects and long-term clients. I perform consulting to the State of Texas as a Catalog Information Systems Vendor (CISV) and can be found on the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) Vendor ID: 1205325509200. I am a business man and aspiring entrepreneur at heart. I operate several small businesses, Freeman Properties Property Management Company as well as other businesses listed on this site.

I work on a great team in the PartnerWorld Business Partner portal as a part of the IBM Global Technology Services (GTS) with the IBM Global Channel Enablement (CE) division. I started my seventh consecutive year-long contract in December of 2010. I am doing some amazing work on this team. I had built a system in which editors on the team can create and maintain HTML pages using an XML/XSL integrated WebSphere system. This allows the users to create pages much more easily. I enjoy the work, this is the best work of my career. This system is being sunset and we are migrating our systems to various internal CMS systems. I have taken on a new role of Content Manager for my growing team of India resources. I assign tasks and manage schedules on a daily basis. I am not looking for further employment at this point, but I am always open to hearing about other opportunities. If you are an employer or headhunter and know of a great working remotely employment opportunity that may be a really good fit that closely matches my skill-set, then please view my résumé. However, know that I am not actively looking for new employment, nor would I likely accept other employment at this time. If you are interested in hiring me as an independent consultant, contractor, web developer/designer to develop your website; or to redevelop and rethink your website, as my specialty is redeveloping and maintaining existing sites, then please contact me.
