Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy does not seem to be a big fan of Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx. During an interview with IndiePower, McCoy talked about an incident where he saved Sixx’s life; Sixx had technically died after a heroin overdose incident, and McCoy says that he got Sixx’s heart “beating again.”
Andy McCoy spoke to his tense relationship with the Mötley Crüe bassist, sharing the following (as transcribed by Blabbermouth): “I’m not a farm boy like Nikki Sixx; I’m from the inner city. And I can’t stand bullshit — like his books; [they’re] full of lies. I saved the guy’s life.”
McCoy went on to share more details regarding the overdose incident involving Sixx.
“I fucking got him revived, got his heart beating again. And the thank you I’ve gotten has been ‘de nada’. I mean, de nada. And that makes him a second-class citizen in my eyes. ‘Cause he only thinks about the buck.”
What do you make of McCoy’s frustrations with Sixx?
As of this past July, Sixx celebrated being sober for 21 years (which is one hell of an amazing achievement). He took to his Instagram to share a statement regarding his sobriety and journey. If you are interested in reading that statement, follow this link here.
McCoy has been vocal about his issues with Sixx in the past, even calling Mötley Crüe “fucking ripoffs.” In another recent interview, the Hanoi Rocks guitarist spoke to other issues he has with Sixx and that of the band. McCoy isn’t the only person who has issues with the band however. Recently, ex-Mötley Crüe frontman John Corabi spoke to how “disappointed” he was when he attempted to reach out to Sixx and Tommy Lee for help. When he learned that his son Ian was struggling with heroin addiction, Corabi reached out to both band members looking for some possible guidance.
