Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx is defending his decision to write songs for diverse acts such as Saliva, Tantric, Meat Loaf, the Backtreet Boys, and Faith Hill. “I just think a great song is a great song,” Sixx said. “I believe that Garth Brooks proved that a country artist can do a metal song, and the Stones proved that rock bands can have country. And we’ve seen rap and rock mix, so there’s no use to just saying, ‘I am a rock and roll songwriter.’ I’m a songwriter, and if I look back on Mötley Crüe’s career, I’ve written everything from punk rock to power pop to boogie rock to beautiful ballads.”
