Bassist Nikki Sixx says guitarist John 5 has re-inspired Motley Crue. In a new interview, Sixx said the guitarist, who was officially announced as Mick Mars’ replacement in October, reinvigorated the band.   He explained, “It’s nothing against any other musician that you play with, just that when you play with new musicians you play differently. We’re still playing the same songs that people wanna hear but it kind of like re-inspires you. And I’m sure the same thing would happen if they got a new bass player. They’re like ‘oh wow, he’s attacking it differently.’ So it’s never about how bad anybody was.”   Nikki went on to say, “It’s a nice time [for Motley Crue] and it’s kind of inspired us to write a little bit. We love our history, we’re very proud of everything we’ve done. We’ve always been really supportive of Mick no matter what Mick was going through. We’re just happy with where we’re at right now.”
