Godsmack’s Sully Erna Slams Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx

November 28, 2015

Godsmack singer Sully Erna recently did an interview with “The Jasta Show” podcast and slammed Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx – saying Sixx is “just an old, fat washed-up has-been” who “treats people like shit.”


The tension between Erna and Sixx started in 2009 during the “Crüe Fest 2” tour. Godsmack was an opening act, Motley Crue was the headliner. After the tour, Godsmack wrote the song “Cryin’ Like A Bitch” about Nikki.

In the latest episode of Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta’s official podcast, “The Jasta Show”, Erna went off, “I’ll say it straight out: I’ve never met a bigger fucking dick in my life than Nikki Sixx. He’s a douchebag. He’s straight-up a fucking douche, and I don’t give a fuck what he says. He knows exactly where I am, and he knows exactly how he can find me anytime that motherfucker has the balls to come and look me up. And I’ll say it straight out on your podcast. He’s a dick, man. He just treats people like shit.”

Erna continued: “I don’t know what his deal is, man, but I can just tell you that he is the most… I don’t even know what the word is for it. I’ve never met anyone like that. He’s just so pompous and egotistical and he feels like he’s still on top of the world. He just thinks he’s so relevant, and he’s just an old, fat washed-up has-been. He annoys me, and I don’t even deal with it anymore. It’s lame.”

Erna detailed some of the events that occurred on the “Crüe Fest 2” tour that caused the bad blood, “Here’s the difference: When you show up and you go see a band like an Aerosmith, or whatever, right? They show up, man, they welcome you with open arms, they give you this amazing all-access laminate that you go, ‘Oh my God! I feel like I’m 15 again.’ Like, ‘I’m gonna stick this in my photo book and keep it forever.’ And yet we go on tour with Crue, and we show up, and Nikki hands us our laminates. It says… This is our laminate, dude. I swear to God, I’m not even exaggerating. It’s a white piece of paper, by the way — just blank on both sides — laminated, that says ‘Opening Band’ on it. It doesn’t say ‘Crüe Fest 2’, it doesn’t say ‘All Access. It’s, like, written with a fucking Sharpie. It just says, ‘Opening Band.’ And we just looked it, like, ‘Seriously?’ Boom. Tossed that in the salad bowl.”

He continued: “[Nikki is] ‘pass happy.’ Like, ‘This one goes to this one,’ and, ‘That one goes to that one,’ and, ‘Make sure this one doesn’t come down this corridor.’ And, ‘This one cannot film that side.’ We’re, like, ‘Dude, get a fucking grip on yourself. Seriously!’ It’s, like, nobody cares. The only reason I even wanted to stand on the side of the stage is to watch Tommy, because I love watching that dude play. He’s entertaining, it’s fun, and he’s a good friend of mine.”

Erna added: “It’s just that kind of stupid moves that makes him look like such a dick. And if he could just see that, that the way he treats people and the way he conducts everything around him… There’s a reason why people don’t wanna associate with him, there’s a reason why he has zero respect in this industry. And the only people that really give a shit are the people that have just followed him from back in the day or whatever.”
