Nikki Sixx confirms Motley Crue rock tribute album coming

On the heels of the August 19th release of the Motley Crue country tribute album, Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue, bassist Nikki Sixx has confirmed that a rock tribute is also in the works.

In a message posted on the @OutlawsNash official Twitter account, Sixx writes how excited he is about both projects.

“Pretty cool to have so many of the top country acts come to us and want to do a tribute album of our songs. I am honored when any artist of any genre finds us important enough to play our music.

“I have heard these songs, and to be honest, I was completely blown away,” he continues. “The fact that so many country fans are rock fans seems like a good fit for them. We don’t know if [the tribute album] will connect with the die hard Crueheads but you never know, some like me are more open minded than others…

“Now, I can tell you there’s talk of a big rock tribute coming as well.”

“This really isn’t your album unless you happen to love country anyway,” he insists. “Country isn’t what it used to be either. To me, it’s very similar to what rock was in the ’70s.

“Now, I can tell you there’s talk of a big rock tribute coming as well. As we head out into the world all kinds of Crue will be in the blood stream… See ya on tour…”

As to who is involved on the rock tribute and when it will be released is still a mystery. When that information is released, we will post it here at The Music Universe.

Last week, Motley Crue kicked off the first leg of The Final Tour with opening act Alice Cooper. The tour is planned to run worldwide through 2015 before the band calls it quits from the road for good.
