Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx spent a year tirelessly logging the highs and lows of life as a drug-addled rockstar in his 2007 biography 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.' Now the bassist says that year will be recreated on Broadway.
Nikki Sixx, bassist for Motley Crue, shared the heartache he's been living with in recent month as he watches his grandfather slowly die from prostate cancer. He revealed that doctors gave the man he calls his "role model and biggest fan" three to six months to live, four months ago.
It's one of the defining hits of the power ballad era and a standout in the Motley Crue catalog, but according to Nikki Sixx, the band had to fight just to release 'Home Sweet Home' on an album -- and if it hadn't been for MTV, it might never have become the lighter-waving favorite we all remember today.
With Motley Crue's summer-long tour with fellow rock titans Kiss wrapping up, we caught up with the band's bassist, songwriter, author, fashion designer, photographer, radio host and all-around renaissance man, Nikki Sixx.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx’s girlfriend, Courtney Bingham, made a special wish for her 27th birthday, and completed the sexy task at a recent Crue show on Sept. 6 at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkson, Mich.
Motley Crue are doing things on their own terms these days, and that includes promotion, recording, and touring. Bassist Nikki Sixx says that while it's been fun to have the 'Sex' single out there for fans and to spend time with Kiss on tour, that doesn't necessarily mean a full album will immediately follow.
Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine has been spouting some interesting theories about the recent mass shootings in the U.S., trying to tie it to President Barack Obama and his attempts to pass anti-gun legislation. But not everyone subscribes to Mustaine's conspiracy theory and they're using their First Amendment rights to respond right back to the singer.
Kiss and Motley Crue are on the road this summer for a co-headlining jaunt dubbed simply 'The Tour,' but this isn't the first time they've shared a bill -- and when Paul Stanley appeared recently on Nikki Sixx's 'Sixx Sense' radio show, the duo looked back on the time Kiss gave Motley one of their first big breaks.
