Bassist made the comments on his 'Sixx Sense' radio show

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed that he doesn’t wash his hands after going to the bathroom, going on to attempt to explain why.

Speaking on his Sixx Sense radio show, the musician recently told co-host Jenn Marino: “My thing is this, and you have to be honest with me and tell me I’m right: [you should] wash your hands before, because you don’t wanna get the bacteria all over it.”

He continued: “I don’t have a problem with my own smell on my hands, but… I’m gonna shake a thousand hands a day and then I grab my junk. I’ve got a thousand people’s germs on my junk. I don’t want that. My own junk is my own junk, so I don’t wash afterwards. So if you shake my hand, congratulations.”

Sixx recently said his younger self would be “extremely proud” he doesn’t sound like Coldplay.

The bassist made the remark in an interview with The Telegraph in which he was asked to discuss what his younger self would make of him today.

“I didn’t set out to be a rock star, but I was always into poems and words, starting with nursery rhymes when I was very young,” Sixx recalled during the interview. “Then I found a guitar and started to align the words and melodies to notes and, suddenly, the dots connected. I fell in love with Queen, Bowie and Slade, and I had the right look for it all, too – weird. I was this very artsy, punky kid.”

After explaining that his three children are now his “biggest inspirations”, the star added: “The hardest thing about being a musician is that I have to be away from them, but I think my younger self would be proud that I became someone who he would have liked to have as a father. And, of course, he’d be extremely proud that I didn’t turn out sounding like Coldplay.”

Sixx’s band Sixx:AM band released their fourth album ‘Prayers for the Damned, Vol. 2’ in April. Motley Crue played their last ever show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 31 last year (2015).
