Nikki Sixx Of Motley Crue Undergoes Double Hernia Surgery
Nikki Sixx posted on Facebook: “I have been performing during the last few months with a pretty intense double hernia but you gotta give 100% even through the pain onstage. The good news is yesterday I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well. My lovely wife, kids and Leica have been really taking care of me. I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in 6 weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all back out on the road..
PS.. Holy Jesus, it feels like I got kicked in the stomach by a horse. They gave me some pain meds but I am trying to not take them and luckily Courtney Bingham-Sixx looks pretty hot in her nurse outfit…”

Good Thing Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Didn’t Take The Warning
In an interview with PartySmasherInc Mastodon’s Brent Hinds says: “My dad warned me, ‘what you’re going to try to do for a living is a one in a million chance. Hardly anyone makes it in the music business. You need to go to college, get a proper education and raise a family – that’s a guaranteed good living.’ I said, ‘Thanks dad, but no thanks, I’m going to give this music thing a chance.'”
And he says the reason he did make it was because of his Mastodon band members Troy Sanders, Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor. He continues: “I met the right bunch of guys that had the same vision I did and they were willing to be hungry with me and willing to eat sardines and live on mustard and stuff like that. That’s the demographic you have to form with other guys in order to get to where we are now.”
Chiodos Have Released New Video For 3 AM
Bradley Bell of Chiodos said: “Never has this band been so excited about a music video. This time we took the approach of having fun and getting everybody involved in some acting and just being their weird selves. Hopefully everyone enjoys it as much as we did.”
Framing Hanley Talks About ‘Twisted Halos’ Video
