NIKKI SIXX says he CHUCKLED when he heard about EDDIE VEDDER's hate for MOTLEY CRUE. And then he fired back . . . saying PEARL JAM is one of the most boring bands in the world.
To catch you up, Eddie recently talked to the "New York Times" about an early job he had loading gear at a venue . . . and he said, quote, "I'd end up at shows that I wouldn't have chosen to go to. Motley Crue: [Eff] you. I hated how it made the fellas look . . . the women look. It felt so vacuous."
After hearing this, Nikkie tweeted, quote, "Made me laugh today reading how much the singer in Pearl Jam hated Motley Crue. Now considering that they're one of the most boring bands in history it's kind of a compliment isn't it?"
He also compared Eddie's singing style to singing with marbles in your mouth . . . that it's "very zen."
