Mötley Crüe band members Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx are not impressed with a new documentary that’s aired about the band.
Neil and Sixx took to social media to voice their opinions on the latest episode of Reelz network’s docuseries “Breaking the Band”.
Neil specifically had a few things to say about how the show reportedly blamed the break-up on him putting racing before music.
The rocker, who left the group in 1992 before re-joining in 1996, posted: “‘Breaking the band’, f**king memories from a manager Doug Thaler who can’t remember that he’s the one who actually broke up the band! The band didn’t break up because of me racing.”
“It broke up because he was too much of a p***y who didn’t just say, ‘Hey guys, let’s take a week off and come back with cooler heads.’ He called me an hour later and said I was out of the band! Great management!”
Sixx added on Twitter, “I am very disappointed that they think they can tell our LIFE story just to sell advertising ( mostly incorrect ) and without any bodies persmission [sic].”
He also threatened legal action, insisting: “‘Breaking the Band’ was not authorized by Mötley Crüe. Our lawyers sent them a cease-and-desist and further action will be taken. @ReelzChannel Is the bottom of the barrel.”
