nikki sixx Nikki Sixx Gives His Thoughts On Steven Tyler

Joining members of Aerosmith and Kid Rock, Motley Crue guitarist Nikki Sixx has joined the war of words surrounding Tyler’s decision to become a judge on the next season of American Idol.

Contrary to the opinions of Kid Rock, who said Tyler’s decision was “the stupidest thing he’s ever done in his life,” Sixx actually expressed praise and support for the Aerosmith frontman’s new gig. He hosts a nationally-syndicated radio program called “Sixx Sense,” and during the show went into detail on Tyler’s decision.

His main point is that Tyler’s presence behind the Idol bench brings a much-needed dose of credibility from a real musician with an unquestioned pedigree of songwriting and performing success. Should be interesting to hear how Steven critiques the rock guys.
