Nikki Sixx: “I Want To Be An Artist, Not A Rock Star”
Can one who writes a song about sky-diving naked from an aeroplane be considered an artist?
In a recent interview with Metromix, Sixx says: “I do everything and anything to not be a rock star and just be an artist. I focus on artistry. I mean, yeah, we get compliments from bands, or artists who say they’ve been influenced by our music, and that’s cool, but I don’t focus on it. That’s kind of like living in ego. I don’t go there. I’m just another cat who plays some pieces of metal on a piece of wood.”
