Nikki Sixx was born on December 11, 1958 in San Jose California. He and his sister were raised by their abusive mother. At 13, he left his mother to move in with his Nona (Grandmother). He never knew his father. Already famous for writing and playing music, he expanded his popularity by publishing his book. Sixx is more famous for his position as song writer and bass player for the rock band, Mötley Crüe. In 1987, the band reached one of the peaks of their early career while he reached the rock bottom point in his life. Nikki found himself severely addicted to heroin and he knew that his body wouldn't be able to stand living like this much longer.
Knowing that his life may be coming to an end soon, Sixx decided to keep a personal diary for his friends and family to discover and learn from once he is gone. In his diary, he writes about extremely dark experiences and the reality of heroin and what he put himself through. Filled with morals and a few heartbreaking moments to remember, the rockstar's diary tells the story of the darkest year of his life, and the dangers drugs has on everyone (not just the person with the addiction).
Nikki was pronounced dead on December 23, 1987. He was revived within an hour. He claims to have seen himself entering the abulance and it's flashing lights from above, as a spirit. This experience helped him realize how valuable life is to him and he has been sober and very successful ever since. In 2002, Nikki Sixx formed the side project, Brides Of Destruction, and relased the album Here Comes The Brides in 2004. In 2007, he released the music album, Sixx: AM, to follow up his book with songs to better deliver the story he has told. In 2011, he published a success story titled This Is Gonna Hurt that expresses his veiw and attitude he has towards life. Today, Nikki Sixx is still touring with Mötley Crüe, is a proud single father of three, and a host of a radio show, Sixx Sence, where he discusses music and lifestyle topics. The inspirational musician and song writer is alive and well and still devoting his time to spreading his views and values as much as he can.
