Carmine Appice has openly supported an earlier anonymous assertion that Nikki Sixx’s bass parts on Mötley Crüe records were not performed by the rockstar himself. This revelation has sparked a firestorm of debate, particularly in light of Appice’s previous Twitter remark. Confirming that the bassist’s work with Mötley Crüe was done by a session musician, the drummer wrote: “I rest my case concerning Nikki Sixx… “Kaye Carol.

” Sixx rumors originally appeared when Mick Mars filed a lawsuit against him and the band, claiming that pre-recorded tunes were used for live gigs. Following a recent Talk Is Jericho podcast interview with the band’s producer, Bob Rock, things became heated. During this interview, Rock discussed the production of ‘Dr. Feelgood’ and gave some fascinating insights into the recording process, saying: “I have a story to tell you about Nikki Sixx.” This is amusing. So, [when we were producing] ‘Dr. Feelgood’, [Nikki] talks to me; he goes, ‘I don’t think I ever played on any of the Mötley Crüe records. ‘I believe someone came in late at night and replaced all of my parts.’ ‘So I don’t actually know how to play bass,’ he admits. ‘Too awful,’ I responded. You’re on bass on it.’ So I worked with him on ‘Dr. Feelgood,’ did a lot of editing, and forced him to play every note.”

However, after his remarks provoked outrage, the producer reaffirmed his position in another public statement: “I never once thought Nikki didn’t play bass on Mötley Crüe’s records.” He’s one of the world’s most unusual and skilled musicians, and his approach to the instrument is part of what has made Mötley Crüe so successful over the years.” Like Bob Rock, John 5 supported Sixx during the incident. He saw the allegations regarding his bandmate’s sections as compliments rather than critiques and chose to back him up, defying Appice and Mars.
