Motley Crüe can still make music together despite signing a ''no more tours'' contract.

The 'Kickstart My Heart' heavy metal rockers - Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and Mick Mars - announced a farewell tour earlier this year and admitted they'd singed a legally-binding document which means they'll never be able to go on the road together again, but Nikki insists it doesn't mean the end of the band.

He explained: ''It [the contract] is legally binding. Motley Crüe cannot tour. We could tour as the Flaming Buttholes, but that's kinda pointless, right? We could do a disco record and tour as the Disco Boys. But Motley Crüe can never tour again.

''It's no more touring. That's it. We can make music; we can do a lot of other stuff.''

The 55-year-old bassist also admitted that while the band have been working on some new songs together, he's not sure whether he would want them to release a new album at this stage in their career.

He told Classic Rock magazine: ''We've written some songs ... If you're this kind of band at this stage of your career you can't be played on Active Rock [radio station]; if you've been around for more than fifteen years you're classic rock, but classic rock radio doesn't play new music. You think, 'F**k, man, this sucks.''
