Nikki Sixx calls Sully Erna a midget. Dose of Metal laughs.

I have no idea how ‘tall’ Sully Erna is, but Google says 5′ 4″ and this video shows a 6′ 1″ James Hetfield towering over him. So even though the official numbers might not be accurate, he’s not gonna play in the NBA anytime soon.

Why am I telling you this?  Because of Nikki Sixx’s tweet:

Haha, I love midget jokes myself. Sully will most likely reply to this, so if Nikk doesn’t go for the Oompa-Loompa reference, he’s losing points in my book.


Nikki Sixx to release two books we won’t read

Nikki Sixx is a lot of things… Bassist… Karate flying kicker, Amy Winehouse fan, Bret Michaels non-fan, and apparently an author, too.

But not just any writer, like, you know, one of those unhip doofus writers who only write one book at a time. Nope, brother done got started on TWO books, son… Fo’ shizzle, yo… Wesside.

One book will be released the upcoming summer (around May or June 2012) and the other one in 2013. It’s safe to say that neither of us at Dose of Metal plan on reading either of them, or any of his previous books for that matter. Why?

Well, for one thing, we don’t really read — if you couldn’t figure that out already by our poor grasp of the English language.
Two, it’s Nikki Sixx. I wouldn’t touch anything he’s released with a wooden pole. Or is stick? Or maybe… Woodden Stikk?

Anyway, here’s what Nikki had to say about his books on Facebook:

Neither book is like anything i have done before […] I pride myself on not writing the same book over & over and also not using a ghost writer… Of course it takes longer, but raw honesty through words is what I am driven to publish… After I get it all out on paper I use a trusted editor to help me carve it into a palatable experience…

Read full post here.

If he’s really not using a ghost writer, that’s pretty cool. Of course, the term ‘ghost writer’ usually implies not admitting it, so unless we give him a lie detector test, how can we ever be sure?


Funny Mötley Crüe bassist is funny

Whenever Nikki Sixx talks about ‘being heavy,’ I always assume he’s talking about his weight gain, followed by some bullshit excuse of how he got fat for a role. I guess I’m wrong this time, cause he’s actually talking about heavy music… Mötley Crüe and heavy music, now that’s something I’d pay good money not to see.

My idea for a record is… We can’t depend upon radio or anything else to sell records, so I think we should depend upon what really juices us, and for me right now, I would love to make an extremely heavy, non-commercial record — more like a Shout At The Devil type of a record.

Watch full interview after the jump.

Oh yeah, cause Shout At The Devil was an amazingly heavy album. God forbid should you return to such death metal roots.

So yeah, Nikki, we appreciate your passion for heavy music (or rather, trying to make heavy music), but the only thing heavy related to you was when your weight crushed that fan whose head you jumped on.


Weak Recap: Weak Aside

When you’re writing for a metal blog, you’re more informed about what’s up in the metal world than the average Joe. You’ve got to, to keep your blog up-to-date. That has its ups and downs. On the one hand, you get to know more about your favorite musicians — and sometimes even insider knowledge, through friends you’ve made within the business. On the other hand, you sometimes get to know stuff that you didn’t even want to know — and you have to keep up with bands that you actually don’t give a damn about or even dislike.

Every once in a while, something really positive happens to you. One of those bands, you’re bound to cover because of their standing in the rock/metal world, a band that you can’t stand at all, gives up and calls it quits. It’s a downside being turned into an upside, because now you don’t mind writing about that particular band anymore. They split-up, time to celebrate that.

In case you don’t know just what the hell I am talking about: Disturbed aren’t disturbing us anymore and I would like to dedicate the above song to Draiman and his puppies.

That’s just something I had to get off my chest and I would also like to take this opportunity to make “breaking-up” a topic for this week’s Weak Recap. Make the jump to see us celebrating the death of a horrible band. Disturbed are dead, long live Dose of Metal.


Nikki Sixx jumps on fan

If you’re in a band, especially in a band that hasn’t been relevant since rotary phones were ‘new technology,’ any means of your live show being distributed to people should be flattering to you. Right? Well, not if your name is Nikki Sixx.

Apparently Nikki spotted some fan filming the Mötley Crüe show with what he thought was a ‘professional camera,’ and he decided jumping on him was a great way to make him stop. So that’s what he did, as you can see from the video.

And thank god for him. Can you imagine that kid uploading the concert to YouTube and giving the band free publicity and exposure? Sheesh, that’s a crime that should be punished by death.

Good on ya, Mr. Sixx. Jump on your own fans and stop any kind of promotion, it’s not like your band needs it or anything.

Oh, if you’re wondering,  this happened at their July 30 show in Frederick, Maryland.
