    Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx turned 54 earlier this week! The rhythm section rabble rouser revealed some advice for wannabe, aspiring rockers to VH1 Classic Radio.

    Ready, rockers? What do you need to do?

    According to Sixx, your aspirations need "to be about the craft and if you can stay focused on the craft, the craft of songwriting, producing, being the best you can be as an artist then the other stuff is, I think it’s like extracurricular activity that's cool. You know, you want to tear it up, you want to party, you want to have a good time – I mean everybody does – business people do, everybody does. It's when it goes too far and you can’t stop that that's the problem, and that actually is what gets in the way of your craft."

    He knows a thing or two or 54 about partying too hard. He's written books about it! Hello, The Dirt.

    What is your favorite Mötley Crüe song?

    —Maggie Pannacione
