Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx had some harsh words for Godsmack on his Twitter page after he claims the band “begged” to come on his radio show, “The Sixx Sense” to promote their new album.
Sixx tweeted, “So @godsmack begged to be on @Sixxsense to promote their s— new album. Good luck touring phonebooths. Whos crying like a bitch now?”
Sixx and Godsmack singer Sully Erna have feuded for several years after the two butted heads during the Crue Fest 2 tour in 2009. There are rumors Godsmack’s song, “Cryin’ Like A Bitch” which came out the following year was about Sixx because of the clash during the tour.

Led Zeppelin is reissuing its first three albums in June, but fans are getting some Zeppelin rarities ahead of that.
Specifically, fans are getting to hear previously unreleased versions of “Whole Lotta Love” and “Keys to the Highway”.
Jimmy Page grabbed the tracks from the band’s vault.
“Keys to the Highway” was recorded in 1970. Robert Plant says he and Jimmy Page were just fooling around when they put it on tape. The “Whole Lotta Love” track is an early version—missing some vocals, slide guitar, the middle section, and first chorus.
If you were wondering if this new material and the album reissues were a sign that Zeppelin was going to do some reunion shows, Robert Plant says there’s zero chance.
Jimmy Page said, “I’m sure people would love to hear it. I’m not the one to be asking, I don’t sing.”
