Do we really need more tomes from Nikki Sixx?
Clearly, we’ve heard a lot of the Nikki Sixx story already, first in the Mötley Crüe biography “The Dirt,” and then with his own book “The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star” and the follow-up, “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx.”
Do we need TWO MORE Nikki Sixx books? I’d argue no, but that won’t be stopping Nikki from release two more.
The first of the two books is due in May or June of 2012, and will be followed by the second book in 2013.
Sixx writes on his Facebook page: “Neither book is like anything I have done before (I guess you can say the same thing about ‘The Heroin Diaries’ and ‘This Is Gonna Hurt,’ too). I pride myself on not writing the same book over and over and also not using a ghost writer. Of course, it takes longer, but raw honesty through words is what I am driven to publish…After I get it all out on paper, I use a trusted editor to help me carve it into a palatable experience…”
They’ll give book deals to anyone, it seems…but me.
Sixx’s latest book, “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx,” debuted at #4 on The New York Times “Hardcover Advice & Misc” best seller list. The book came out on April 12 via the HarperCollins imprint William Morrow.
