During a recent Motley Crue tour stop in New Jersey, rock icon and national radio host Nikki Sixx returned to his roots working at famous East Coast record store, Vintage Vinyl, to promote his chart-topping band Sixx:AM’s forthcoming album Modern Vintage and offer a special giveaway to fans. Those who pre-ordered copies of Modern Vintage at the record store in Fords, N.J., received a limited-edition 7″ vinyl of “Gotta Get it Right,” the first single from the new album that is due for release by Eleven Seven Music on October 7th.
While photos of Sixx working at Vintage Vinyl were shared across social media, exclusive hidden camera footage was also filmed by the people behind some of your favorite hidden-camera pieces, TV BOY. The resulting video is now available at SixxSense.com – the website for Sixx’s internationally syndicated radio programs Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. See the surprisingly funny footage of Sixx (a.k.a “Larry”) working behind the store counter, including assisting customers with music searches, answering phone calls, and failed attempts to use a cash register, bag albums, all while denying his true identity, below.
