Bret Michaels was interviewed on a recent edition of "Sixx Sense", the new national radio program hosted by MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx.
When asked about CRÜE and POISON's upcoming tour with NEW YORK DOLLS and why their two bands hadn't hit the road together before, Sixx said during a recent interview, "We were on separate paths. And MÖTLEY's thing had been we didn't wanna tour with any bands from the same era that we were about; we wanted to stay on our own. And me and Bret had talked and they'd been doing the same thing ? [turns to Bret, who was also part of the interview] you've taken out a lot of the alternative and active rock bands as well. And the fans are the ones that really kind of demanded it and made MÖTLEY and the guys in POISON start to talk about it. And the [NEW YORK] DOLLS signed on, and we were, like, 'You know, this time right now, economically, it's so bad for touring and for fans and for bands. What can we do to make the ultimate fan experience?" All the hits, the show, they know all the music... And both bands put on just a killer show, and we're looking forward to it. So I'm glad we didn't do it [earlier]."
