Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx finished up the initial leg of the band’s “Final Tour” in great pain. As it turns out, the Crüe bassist was performing while suffering the effects of a double hernia. What a trooper! Sixx underwent surgery September 3 and had this to say about it on his Facebook page:
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…
The band will resume the tour on October 10 in Oklahoma City.
