Nikki Sixx Disses Godsmack Short Guy Sully Erna

Sully Erna, actual size

Either Nikki Sixx reads this site, or he’s just a keen observer and stater of the obvious. Case in point.

It was recently revealed that Motley Crue would become the first band to commit to a short-term residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Motley Crue will play a three-week series of four-night concerts a week at the off-Strip casino starting on February 3 and running through February 19.

In a brand new Twitter posting, Nikki Sixx wrote, “We’re looking for an angry midget for our Vegas shows and was thinking of using the singer from Godsmack.”

I have met Sully in person. He literally looks like a man child. I had a bird’s eye view of the dude just standing next to him. And he’s got what all little guys have — Napoleon syndrome.

Sixx and Sully have been having a war of words in recent years. Erna reportedly wrote the band’s song “Cryin’ Like A Bitch” about Sixx after the two musicians clashed during the 2009 Crüe Fest 2 tour.

Sixx later commented that “Even [Sully’s] manager told me he’s an asshole… Maybe the problem is just in HIS head… I got no problem with him.”
