Nikki Sixx says Vince Neil sounds like Robert Plant

Bassist Nikki Sixx compared Motley Crue’s vocalist Vince Neil’s voice with Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant.

In a video chat interview with Yahoo Entertainment to promote his new memoir The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx, he took some time to talk about his early years, his experience in high school, and how he ended up joining Motley Crue. He acknowledged that the idea for most of his songs came from his experiences.

Sixx had previously said that the theme of “Live Wire” in particular was influenced by domestic abuse, which was a part of his childhood and contributed to why Neil was the best singer for the group.

As the discussion progressed, they came to a specific moment when Sixx explained why Neil is in fact the perfect vocalist for the band.

He said, “With Motley Crue, Vince has this amazing, unique voice — sometimes like Robert Plant, Perry Farrell… they have these interesting voices that are… they’re not pitchy, they’re just raw and just kind of on top.”

He appreciated and understood the singer’s voice, which is one reason the band’s composing process works well with Neil’s voice in mind.

Sixx added, “When we’re doing demos, I’ll sit in the studio with Tommy [Lee] and we will get it so that it sounds like this song… he delivers it, he owns it.”

The Motley Crue bassist believed Vince Neil’s voice was perfect for all of the band’s well-known songs since he appreciated it so much.

The complete interview is available to watch below.
