Nikki Sixx, the bassist of the "world's most notorious rock band" Mötley Crüe, said in the band's autobiographical book 'The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band', that their 'Girls, Girls, Girls' tour in the UK was canceled out of fear that one of them would probably die. The band was notorious for their excess with drugs, alcohol and their fondness for the fairer sex, aside from their infamous Sunset Strip apartment.

Unfortunately for their Far-East tour manager, Mr. Udo, who warned Sixx to quit heroin or end up like his friend and fellow rocker Tommy Bolin, who died of an overdose, the band ignored all of the pleas to stop being crazy, The Sun reported.



 

Instead of taking the manager's words seriously, Sixx hired 150 prostitutes and, as a twisted way of saying thanks, sent 30 of them to Udo's room, where his family was also staying. The bassist says: "He told me the next day that, in Japanese culture, what I did was pretty insulting."

Mötley Crüe became the band everyone knew as the crazy one with the wild lifestyle when they were trying to cement their names in music history. Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee formed the band in 1981 and later got its guitarist Mick Mars and singer Vince Neil. The four members lived in a filthy apartment in Sunset Strip, West Hollywood, and the place became synonymous as the top after-party location.

This was the place where people threw TVs out of windows. Remembering life in the small two-bedroom "hell-hole", Sixx said: "The problem was, where we lived was 100ft from the Whiskey A Go Go. If someone is playing there, we would hang out, have drinks, everyone would then come back to our apartment — which had no windows or doors because they had been kicked in by the police or people breaking in. This spot was, like, apocalyptic."

"The health department had to evacuate the building because there was so much trash and rats, bugs and cockroaches. We were so young — Tommy was 17. We just threw trash out the window — eight feet high. If somebody threw a television out the window and it landed on my car, I’d lose my f***ing s**t. I look at the film and think I’d kill somebody if they did that to me. But there were no rules."



 

The band members are pretty close after they initially bonded, which happened after a fight with their first audience at their first gig but this didn't mean that they wouldn't refrain from sleeping with each other's significant others at the time.

Neil had sex with the girlfriend of the band's A&R man in the backstage area at one of their gigs, and Sixx slept with one of Lee's initial girlfriends. Sixx then said: "Everybody was on this reckless adventure, girls and guys, and it was all consensual which is interesting to look back at. Now I’m married, I’m a father of five, I have a baby on the way, I’m sober — but looking back, it was crazy. We were animals, pigs — and so were many of the females."

Netflix's The Dirt premiered on the streaming site on March 22.
