There hasn't been a good rock band spat in...forever? Well, that has certainly changed! Eddie Vedder gave a lengthy interview to the New York Times last weekend (which was very interesting and wide-ranging) ahead of his new solo album, Earthling. In the interview, Vedder described working at a club in San Diego during the late '80s where he'd load in band's gear. “I’d end up being at shows that I wouldn’t have chosen to go to — bands that monopolized late-’80s MTV," Vedder said. "The metal bands that — I’m trying to be nice — I despised. ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and Mötley Crüe: Fuck you. I hated it. I hated how it made the fellas look. I hated how it made the women look. It felt so vacuous.” Now, Nikki Sixx has hit back. In a tweet, Sixx expressed his displeasure and mocked Vedder and his Pearl Jam bandmates. "Made me laugh today reading how much the singer in Pearl Jam hated @MotleyCrue," Sixx said. "Now considering that they’re one of the most boring bands in history it’s kind of a compliment isn’t it?" If you really want to go down a wormhole, check out the comments beneath Sixx's tweets where fans both defended and hit back at the bassist. One of Sixx's attacks is that Vedder sounds like he has “marbles in mouth” among other things. https://twitter.com/NikkiSixx/status/1489833525935108098 Vedder and his new band, the Earthlings, kicked off their three-week run in New York City at the Beacon Theater the past two nights. They played a bunch of covers and deep Pearl Jam cuts, including dusting off "Dirty Frank" for the first time in a little over 15 years. As for Sixx, he recently named his five albums he can't live without, with a slight twist, and appeared on our podcast where he discussed his new book.
