Hi Nigel
How you been?,
I would like to know a little more of how you been doing when the song
"Girls, Girls, Girls" came to your mind and if the Motley Crue song has the
same lyrics or has the same sound.

Regards
md66.

pd: Full in Bloom, thank you.

Nigel's response to question from Megadave66:


"When Tommy was first dating Heather, he brought a little recording rig 
up to her house,where I lived with her sister. I remember drinking a lot
of coronas with Tommy,and working on something called "Girls Girls
Girls". I didnt give it another thought until Motley put out "Girls
etc". Although I was a little pissed, I didnt remember exactly what
happened that night! Many years later when I was packing to leave
Texas, I was going through my stuff and I found some old songs. One of
them was called "GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS" dated 1979! Believe it or not, I did
not cross reference the lyrics, and I dont remember the music. I was just
pissed, because.....well, just because. Like I can prove that he stole the
idea! Or afford to fight his attorneys! If he wasnt even going to give me
a polite mention, do you think he is going to want to give up an actual
credit? Some dogs you just let sleep, and that goes both ways. I'm sure he
has another story. He has to have, doesnt he. But if you believe that it
was at best a coincidence, you may see pigs in the sky! Thanks for being
interested though. - Nigel"

Nigel

Thank you for taking the time to answers the previous message I sent you.

As I mention to Rik Fox, I grew up in the 80's and I purchased several records,
magazines, watching MTV, what I'm trying say is that as a fan I always get the
finished goods from the bands that I like it to hear and watch perform live in a concert without even know about the origins of ther songs, reading only what
they have to speak hiding the truth.

But now at these times, thanks to the internet, sites like Full in Bloom Music, myspace (looks like you are starting yours) you and several artist can now
speak (maybe once again) to tell the truth, the reality of some songs, some bandmates or "friends" that took the credit of the job of the original authors.

I hope that you put more memorabilia in you MySpace site, take a picture of the
sheet where you wrote the Girls song and the more things that you can display
there.

Also, I want to congratulate you for your new album "In the absence of God",
keep up the good music.

Best wishes.
David Sanchez

Cool interview.  Sounds like he might be a little bitter, but everything he's done - that I have heard anyhow - is killer, so I would probably be a tad peeved too

Hi Nigel, thanks for the great interview man. looking forward to hearing some new tunes.  I do have a question.  At the time you were in London, was Nikki Sixx a good songwriter?  Was he a terrible bass player like everyone claims him to be?  -Tony

Hey Tony!
I honestly dont remember which songs he was responsible for in the London set as a writer.And no...I did not rate him as a good bass player.Sorry.If you like Nikki,please dont take my interview as a motivation not to.A lot of people think that their opinion should be used to influence others.I do not.I dont like strawberry ice cream....please stop eating it all of you and send nasty letters to the manufacturer!!??But I will not lie.I'm picking up a lot of flack for my interview,especially from Mott fans,as somehow the one time after 30 years I tell my side of the story is the wrong thing to do.This has caused me to rethink the release of the new album.   It wont be.     Although most of the criticism is appearing on other sites,I still want to thank Adam and Full in Bloom for giving me this forum,and the readers for their positive response.I wish most of you all the best.Nigel.

I had always heard that his bass skills were lacking but he became a pretty good songwriter. Thanks for you honesty and answering my questions.

Hello Nigel - thanks a lot for the interview! I enjoy listening to your voice whatever band you were with, and your recent recordings in particular, they are magical.

All the best from Russia!



P.S. Could the London song be reuploaded? The Youtube link says 'doesn't exist'.
