Most hated technology: The Internet
Date: June 19, 2009
The Mötley Crüe bassist supposedly blamed the Web for overexposing rockstars and taking away their "mystique" value. During an interview with the WSJ, Sixx was quoted saying, "I’m so over the Internet, Twitter is ridiculous and there’s too much info out there. Celebrities, movie stars and rock stars are losing their mystique...The first thing I did when I walked into the arena to work on the set I said, ‘It’s 2009 and there’s a million iPhones with a million opportunities to take a picture of our show and ruin Christmas.” Even though Sixx claimed he was misquoted, we don't see how Apple would be condemned for spoiling Christmas.
