Andy McCoy, of Hanoi Rocks,  recently opened up about his issues with Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx; McCoy has taken to calling the band “fucking ripoffs,” saying that Sixx is a “liar,” and has even called Sixx a “second-class citizen.”

That last point is in regards to McCoy talking about how he saved Sixx’s life; per a past interview, McCoy says that he got Sixx’s heart beating again after the Mötley Crüe bassist technically died from a heroin overdose. He goes on to share how Sixx has never thanked him for saving his life. All this said, Sixx has decided to call out Andy over these past comment. On August 2nd, Sixx wrote the following via his Twitter:

“Whenever other musicians start to slag us I usually look them up and realize they are in the middle of trying to sell a book, music, tour or something to YOU using my or our name. Things that make you go hmmmmm!!”

While this could be read as a more general statement, as of August 14th, Sixx mentioned McCoy by name via another tweet of his. Sixx specifically speaks to Andy’s story about reviving him, sharing:

Andy Mcoy has been on a rant saying I never thanked him for saving my life after a heroin overdose.It’s true.I also never thanked him for getting me the drug’s during my deadly addiction that night..I get it, he’s just trying to sell a book ,a album or club tour…”

What do you make of Sixx’s response to McCoy’s comments? Whose side are you on?
