Bret Michaels doesn’t understand "Negative stuff" from Nikki Sixx:
Bret & Nikki back in the day hanging as buddies!
Bret Michaels says that he doesn’t understand why MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx continues to say "negative stuff" about the POISON singer and insists that the two bands could have "a great tour" if Sixx and his bandmates would just "put [their personal] feelings aside."
When asked by The Birmingham News if MÖTLEY CRÜE and POISON even like each other considering everything that has been said between the two camps in the past, Michaels said, "I want to make it very clear. I’m not a grudge guy, ever. They have said a lot of negative stuff about POISON. [MÖTLEY CRÜE singer] Vince [Neil] has toured with me and we’ve ridden motorcycles together. Nikki and [drummer] Tommy [Lee] have said a lot of negative things about a lot of people, and I was one of them.
"I don’t know what the rhyme or reason is," Michaels continued. "I like some of their music. Fans want the [upcoming MÖTLEY CRÜE and POISON] tour [which is scheduled to kick off on June 7]. I think it could be a great tour for fans if we could just put our feelings aside. I think we can have a great time.
Michaels recently responded to Sixx’s "trash-talking," insisting that the MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist did, in fact, apologize to the POISON singer for saying "a lot of bad crap" about Bret’s band.
In an interview with The Arizona Republic, Michaels claimed that Sixx said he was "really sorry" about some negative comments his MÖTLEY CRÜE bandmates made about POISON. A few days later, Sixx took to his personal Twitter page in order to "clarify" that he never apologized to Bret for derogatory statements that MÖTLEY made about POISON, explaining that what he did say was "I personally never had anything against you guys as a people but MÖTLEY just sorta thought you sucked as band but let’s give the fans what they want and go out and have a good time."
