Sixx Slams Web For Ruining Rock 'N' Roll

MOTLEY CRUE star NIKKI SIXX has blamed the internet for ruining the surprise on the group's current U.S. tour - because fans can use modern technology to preview their shows.
The rockers' Crue Fest 2 trek kicked off in New Jersey on Sunday (19Jul09), and runs through the summer into September (09).
But the bassist is angry that many devotees will turn up at the concerts knowing what to expect - because social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.com will give them a sneak peak online.
Sixx says, "The first thing I did when I walked into the arena to work on the set, I said, 'It's 2009 and there's a million iPhones with a million opportunities to take a picture of our show and ruin Christmas.'
"I'm so over the internet. Twitter is ridiculous and there's too much info out there. Celebrities, movie stars and rock stars are losing their mystique.
"We want to control as much as we can of what's getting out there about us so that people who come are blown away."
