Motley Crue bassist is over Obama
Politico ^ | May 7, 2012 | Caitlin McDevitt

Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe isn’t feeling good about President Obama anymore.

The heavy metal band’s bassist was an Obama supporter but now says POTUS has been a disappointment. Knocking Obama for keeping up with celebrities, Sixx tweeted on Saturday, “Our president is commenting on Kanye, having Lindsey at his party and failing our economy. I used to believe in him but it's time for change!”

I've actually corresponded with Nikki Sixx. He's a brilliant photographer. His music doesn't do much for me but within the genre it's considered first-rate.

He's been resuscitated from a heroin overdose on more than one occasion. You can see why he'd be a little slow on the uptake - I'm happy to hear some of these rockers are beginning to see the light.

With the addition of Nicky Sixx, we here in Hollywood could start a "recovery program" members against Obama clique

:-P

Did Ted EVER support Obama??? I suppose anything's possible but I have a hard time believing it...

I guess Nikki was still suffering from halucinagenics back in 2008. Sounds like he’s in full recovery now. Seriously, most of these clowns supported him in 2008 because it was the “cool” thing to do. Now, a lot of his “cool” has worn off. It’s sad to say we have to rely on the “cool” factor, but anything to get Obama dethroned...

Simmons, Nugent and K. Rock were all arch conservatives to begin with, and never backed O'Bunghole to begin with. Your post is, at best, misleading, and at worst, downright deceitful.

Both are Lib tactics, neither is acceptable. This will go on your permanent record....

I know Ted Nugent was never an Obama supporter but HE IS AN OUTSPOKEN CRITIC. Wasn’t sure about Simmona and Kid Rock. The Point is, these are rockers speaking out against Obama. Was not my intent to decieve. And I don’t know what “permanent record” you’re talking about and frankly, I don’t give a damn. You need to get back on your medication or get out and get a life. Who died and made you the Internet Police; LOSER?

that would actually be a great election year blog concept...the Hollywood Obama Recovery Program. Highlight famous people who have ‘seen the light’.

Whoa Kimosabe!

Notice the

At the end of Gars post.

Turn head sidewise, look at the 8 as eyes, the up arrow as a nose, and the D as A BIG SMILE.

Take a few deep breaths and play nice.

Gar was just teasing.

Unlike Hollywood actors, most musicians are independent businesspeople and see the direct effect a bad economy has on their bottom line. They may be libertines but they aren’t idiots. The musicians who are extremely successful also understand they are “the rich” Obama constantly rails against.

Yes, there are clueless dunces like Sheryl Crow and the Ditzy Chicks for whom liberalism is more important to them than the bottom line but most musicians realize they are dependent on the economy for the discretionary capital of their fan base so the more people who can’t pay for a concert ticket, the less money flows into the band’s pockets.

Don't act so surprised, Nikki. Obama has governed exactly as he said he would and the results have been exactly as his detractors predicted. Disappointed? Why? Obama has done everything he said he was going to do back when he was trying to earn and receive your vote!

Actually, Gene (the Republican) did support Obama in 2008.

That was a surprise and a disappointment.

Gene Simmons was never an “arch conservative.” He was a liberal who considered American power to be a force for good in the world (unlike modern liberals).

I don’t believe Kid Rock supported him either. I’d be surprised if he did! He was a big supporter of George Bush, and tried to get other celebrities to support him in 2004!

Just searching under Motley Crue keywords to see if there were any topics on the final tour and came across this topic. I’ll add that that Nikki recently said on his radio show that he is more of a conservative and that he knows this will surprise some people.
