In a new interview with theLondon Free Press, Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx talks about a number of topics including their final tour, new music and the uncertain future. Here are a few excerpts from the chat:

Their new song "All Bad Things Must End": "It's pretty much us saying even the devil's got to pay for his crime at some time, all bad things must die. We're willing to be put up on the cross and be crucified here and say goodbye. And it's kind of in a dark, snarky, Mötley Crüe kind of way of looking at our self."

The tour finale: "I had been talking to the guys and I said, 'We have to take our final bow in the city that we started it in. Just the four of us, that didn't even have a way to get around town, walking up and down Sunset Boulevard, putting up flyers and people not getting who we were; it slowly built into this local scene and national and international scene and it's been over 30 years. It's the same four guys. And we talk about taking that final bow in Los Angeles, Calif., and you start to go, 'Whoa. Wow.' Like after you get offstage, that's it."

Film version of The Dirt, which is being directed by Jackass alumnus Jeff Tremain: "We wanted this movie to be more in line with GoodFellas and Boogie Nights and even Trainspotting, meaning that it's got edge, it's got bite, it's not a VH1 glossy, Rock of Ages, period piece thing. It's a real story of a real band and it's got some darkness to it, but it's a beautiful story. And, for us, as far as casting, the worst thing we could do is cast a bunch of known actors. Maybe for a little role here and there, but the four characters of Mötley Crüe they need to be some unknown guys that are willing to just get in there and go for it. I don't want to look at a famous actor playing Vince Neil. I'm not going to believe it."
