NIKKI SIXX dropped a HUGE bombshell yesterday . . . admitting that MOTLEY CRUE was "most probably" a sexist band back in the '80s.
But he says all the bands were doing it, and he blamed the previous generation . . .quote, "In the '70s, when I grew up, it was just the messaging that came through, and you were emulating your heroes . . .
"When someone is talking about guns and sex and drugs, you're like, 'This is [effing] dangerous, man. This is not mom and dad's music.' So it was a different time. You can't rewrite history, man."
Nikki did clarify that he's a different person than he was back then.
He said, quote, "I'm really looking at somewhere between 25 to 30 years of not sticking needles in and drinking alcohol and taking pills and stuff . . . I actually lead a pretty clean lifestyle."
