Nikki Sixx Says Scott Weiland Was “Dragging Down” Stone Temple Pilots
Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx has been rather opinionated lately, including telling people to buy full albums, but the guitarist said that he thinks Scott Weiland was “dragging down” the Stone Temple Pilots. We’d hazard to guess Sixx is a fan of Chester Bennington from Linkin Park fronting the band.
Sixx is performing with STP soon and says he’s “looking forward” to opening up for them in Oklahoma tomorrow night.
“Scott Weiland was dragging down a great band,” Sixx explained. “I think they sound fresh and energized again.”
He did however back up and make sure that everyone knew that his opinion is as worthless as everyone else’s: “Remember kids, opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one. Me, you and the man on the moon.”
