Motley Crue rocker Nikki Sixx has urged fans not to vote for him in the Loudwire Music Awards, insisting he does not need trophies to "validate" his achievements.

The musician is nominated in the Best Bassist of 2014 category as part of the publication's annual fan-voted awards, but Sixx is adamant he does not deserve the accolade.

In a post on he shared a link to the poll's webpage and added, "Please don't vote for me. Way better bass players on here and I don't need awards to validate what I've achieved..."

Other nominees in the category include Royal Blood's Mike Kerr and Slash's collaborator Todd Kerns. The vote closes next month (Feb15).
