Before the Motley Crue’s co-headlining Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, the Crue manager has just revealed that some members were working with personal trainer and nutritionists.

Nikki Sixx, co-founder, bassist, and primary songwriter of the Motley Crue, seems bored with the rumors. The successful musician has recently shared a photo of his body and the facts about it on his Instagram account. Nikki stated that he is the first to admit that when they got off the Final Tour, his body was pretty trashed from decades of playing heavy metal. He also talked about his surgeries in the article.

You can read the article he shared below.

“I’ve always believed in being transparent in all my affairs including books, lyrics and interviews. I am the first to admit when I got off the Final Tour my body was pretty trashed from decades of playing heavy metal.

I had both knees fixed, double hernia repair, left hip replaced, left rotator and bicep reattached, and after tearing all the rotators off my right shoulder breaking basses I had to do a major surgery ( Lower Trapezius transfer) that involved moving back muscles, and using grafs to put me back together. I only have two rotators on my right side. A bitch to gain size in my chest but fuck that.

So after all that drama you can imagine how stagnant I got. Got soft and gained some weight. Recovery is a bitch whether it’s drugs, alcohol or in this case multiple surgeries. Here’s a progress photo. IT’s been hard work doing PT and pushing weights around and I am not even close to where I wanna be when the tour starts. Cardio is a whole other conversation. Gotta put the time in and the real muscle is between your ears.

You gotta know what your doing or have people help you. I have a bad ass team. @genesisperformance @eatmacromeals @platinumathletics and @honbopt (Best PT out there).

This bottom photo is a few weeks old. I weigh in soon again and I’ll share my newest progress. Wanna gain 10 more pounds of muscle. For anybody who thinks injuries and surgeries will hold you back I hope you know only you can hold you back.”
