“Some bands go to the trouble of mastering their craft while others mime to a background track.”
— Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns to Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe on Twitter
Metal Sludge — Shots have been fired on Twitter…
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently Tweeted: “Ok here’s a question. Why do bands fight with each other?”
L.A. Guns frontman Phil Lewis was happy to reply: “That’s easy. Some bands go to the trouble of mastering their craft while others mime to a background track. Bound to ruffle some feathers, eh.”
This is not the first time the 2 rockers have exchanged less than favorable words, so it’s a safe bet Mötley Crüe won’t be taking L.A. Guns out on tour anytime soon.
In April of this year, Lewis made headlines on the web saying: “I Never Liked Them” and then called Mötley Crüe “F***ing Atrocious.”
Also, some of our readers might recall an exchange we shared way back in 2012 between Sixx and Lewis.
Lewis had taken a few quality shots at Sixx about the bassist’s Heroin Diaries and it seemed to have gotten back to the Mötley Crüe co-founder and chief song-writer along the way.
Sixx then answered a Tweet and called Lewis a “sad lil pumpkin.”
We shared their 2012 exchanges in our “SAME OL’ SWINDLE” article when Lewis unloaded on Mötley Crüe in early 2023.
