Nikki Sixx is personally bringing the rock star feud back into style.
The Motley Crue bassist has had previous scuffles with Godsmack and Sebastian Bach, and while we’re far past the days of threats filmed and aired on MTV, musicians are not above posting their thoughts on social media.

Ultimate Classic Rock reported Stryper frontman, Michael Sweet, as saying that the events reported in Motley Crue’s hit autobiography, The Dirt, are untrue. This was in response to a question asked about his own book, Honestly: My Life and Stryper Revealed.”
“I think half of what we hear about Motley Crue is B.S. anyway, like when you hear stories about Nikki Sixx dying three times and whatnot. It’s like, ‘how stretched is that?’ … Nothing against Nikki Sixx. Half of the stuff I read in these autobiographies I just kind of roll my eyes at, because I just think that a lot of these guys just did so many drugs and drank so much booze that their minds aren’t too clear in terms of remembering the past exactly as it went down. I hope that doesn’t come across as me being a jerk, but…you’re probably not going to find in my book what you might find in a Motley Crue book, and that’s a good thing!” he said.

We’ll be the first to point out that Stryper, a Christian hair metal band that you’ve probably never heard of outside of VH1’s I Love The 80’s series, probably doesn’t have nearly as good a list of stories as the Crue does. So think carefully before making your next bookstore purchase.
We can personally attest to the greatness that is The Dirt, to which an accompanying movie is also finally, officially, in the works. Coupled with that is the seriousness of Sixx’s response, which he posted on his Facebook page early Tuesday.
