Nikki Sixx is living in fear on the road with rockers Motley Crue, after all three of his bandmates have been struck down with illness or injury.

Drummer TOMMY LEE suffered second-degree burns onstage in Casper, Wyoming, on 12 October (05) when a pyrotechnics effect went wrong.

It followed a leg injury frontman VINCE NEIL suffered in an earlier gig and guitarist Mick Mars' longterm battle with bone disease.

Bassist Sixx tells Rolling Stone magazine, "Vince tore up his calf, Mick has the degenerative bone disease and then Tommy. Everyone's taking bets on when I go down."
