Mötley Crüe wrote some of the best songs ever for strippers to wiggle their bums to. For this we’re really thankful. Bassist, Nikki Sixx is a bona fide Rock Icon and his latest press release says he’s a Syndicated Radio Show Host as well. That’s great.
More importantly, on 02 May 2011, Sixx is releasing a book called This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx. It just rolls off the tongue. Even better is there will be an 11-track CD companion to the book from SIXX:AM. Combo.
Here’s a description of the book copied directly from the press release:
This Is Gonna Hurt will include dozens of Nikki’s images and will be the first public viewing of his photography. The book and soundtrack both incorporate the stories behind the pictures and how they came to be, including interviews with the subjects so readers can see “what life is like for those whom society has labeled as freaks.”
And here’s a quote from Nikki Sixx, also lifted directly from the press release:
“I’ve always had an eye for the oddities in life. Even as a kid I saw the world in my own way and thought most things that were different were beautiful and magical. Even things that other people thought were horrifying and disgusting and weird… People say I have a distorted lens. I think I see things as they really are,”
DJ Ashba (fake Slash from nu-GNR) and James Michael accompany Nikki in the SIXX:AM trio. It looks like a pretty nice little combo, to be honest. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to grab 10 minutes with the big man at the start of April, but it’s up to his people to squeeze us in. Cross the fingers. Cross ’em.
