Backstage at Crue Fest ’09 with Nikki Sixx, Rev Theory and Charm City Devils

Last week I went to CrueFest and got together with Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue before the show to discuss his Epiphone signature bass. Nikki customizes every bass he plays with his own unique treatment and artwork so when Nikki’s tech, Darron showed us Nikki’s rack of basses, the discussion immediately turned to the possibility of offering some limited edition Epi Blackbirds inspired by Nikki’s designs. Here’s a few pics.




Then it was on for a get together on the Gibson/Epiphone bus with Charm City Devils who are signed to Nikki’s new label “Eleven Seven” and Rev Theory.  Both bands use Epiphone Prophecy guitars and put on yet another great performance. Below is a shot of Rev Theory’s Rikki Lixx soloing with his Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul EX.


If you have the chance to  go to Cruefest 2009 I’d encourage you to do so. Motley Crue headlines the festival with an amazing show playing all the hits (and more) from their classic Dr. Feelgood album. Crue Fest 2009 runs through September 5th.  You can check out the dates at www.motley.com.
