Nikki Sixx is fed up with other musicians dropping Motley Crue’s name for clout.

The bassist took to Twitter this week to write, “Whenever other musicians start to slag us I usually look them up and realize they are in the middle of trying to sell a book, music, tour, or something to YOU using my or our name. Things that make you go hmmmmm!!”

Sixx’s frustration is most likely in reference to Hanoi Rock’s guitarist Andy McCoy, who said Nikki Sixx’s books are “full of lies” in a recent interview.

He also called Sixx a “second-class citizen.”

Hanoi Rocks is releasing a 40th-anniversary reissue of their second album “Oriental Beat.”

Do you think Nikki Sixx has a valid point or is he just mouthing off because his ego is bruised?
