Motley Crue rocker Nikki Sixx enjoys his reputation for being unable to play his bass guitar, because his hidden instrumental prowess always amazes fellow musicians.
Despite having been a professional rock star for 25 years, Sixx is as well-known for his hedonistic lifestyle as he is for his music.
He tells American magazine Blender, "There's this thing out there that I can't play bass.
"Every time I jam with some other musicians, they're like, 'Damn, dude! You're a pretty good bass player!' And I'm like, 'Yeah. I've toured the world 20 times, you know? Played in front of millions and millions of people.'"
