If you missed it, here's the TLDR version of the feud so far:
- Speaking to the New York Times last month, Eddie Vedder dissed Motley Crue, saying he despised having to be at the same shows as them in the late '80s.
- The next day, Pearl Jam's twitter account posted a tongue-in-cheek response saying "We [love] our bored fans," along with a clip of excited fans at a Pearl Jam show. Vedder then double-downed at his solo gig shortly after the tweet, taking a dig at Mötley Crüe's stage theatrics.
Aaaaaand that's the basic summary of what's been happening between those two in the last month.
Just recently, Nikki Sixx spoke about the beef further in a chat with Brazilian entrepreneur Paulo Baron and music critic Regis Tadeu.
"You take a swipe at my band; I'll take a swipe at your band. You try to hurt my family, which is my band; I will try to hurt you. That's not something to be proud about," he laughed.
Later in the chat, Sixx was asked to explain why he responded to Vedder. He said:
"My only thing is, you wanna take a crack at my band, I'm probably gonna say something back. But what I don't understand is why's the guy even talking about my band? He's a successful guy.
"Listen, let's face it: the guy flies around in private jets; he lives in a mansion in a gated community; he sells out stadiums; and then he dresses at the thrift store and tries to pretend [to be] some guy in the '90s. Don't take a swipe at my band, dude. I mean, I'm at least being honest."
