Since exploding onto the scene as part of Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx has proven himself to be a true renaissance men. In addition to being the primary songwriter for one of the biggest groups of the '80s and '90s, Sixx has helped the band stay ahead of the pack in many other ways. It's his creative vision that guided or sparked many of the group's most successful image changes, album covers and concert stage sets. When the grunge explosion of the '90s wiped out many of their contemporaries, Sixx helped Motley Crue not only survive but thrive -- taking back ownership of their lucrative back catalog, starting their own music festival and establishing themselves as one of the genre's most dependable concert attractions. He's also become the host of a successful radio show, an acclaimed author and photographer, and started another successful band, Sixx: A.M.
