Body: SIXX: A.M.BAND REHEARSALS ARE SOUNDING GREAT. IT'S OUR FIRST CONCERT AND WE DON'T HAVE TOO LONG TO PLAY (I THINK 40 MINUTES) AND HAD TO BREAK IN A NEW DRUMMER.

WE DO IT ALL OURSELVES WHEN RECORDING.IVE BEEN ASKED A LOT IF WE DO ANY CRUE LIVE AND AT THIS TIME I FEEL WE SHOULD STAND ON OUR OWN AND NOT RELY ON ANYBODY'S MUSIC BUT OUR OWN.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY PLANS TO TOUR, SO THIS IS EXCITING FOR US TO DO THIS ONE SHOW.

I KNOW KORN IS HEADLINING AND IT WILL BE NICE TO HANG WITH THEM…THERE GOOD GUYS…AFTER THE SHOW I HAVE BOOK SIGNINGS IN VANCOUVER, SEATTLE AND SAN FRAN AND THEN BACK HOME.

THE BOOK IS STILL ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER LIST AND OUR SINGLE IS TOP 5 NOW…….FEELS SO NICE TO STEP AWAY FROM MY PAST AND FOCUS ON THE FUTURE WITH MY BEST FRIENDS……..WHAT A GIFT..

THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS AND SUPPORT…

HAPPY HALLOWEEN……..

NIKKI

Nikki should tour with Sixx A.M instead of doing new Motley things. I mean, Motley are fucked up nowadays, just look at Vince...

Mr. Sixx goes to Washington

Lianne George | Oct 26, 2007 | 3:35 pm EST
Related content:Maclean's Q&A with Nikki Sixx

Standing in an alleyway behind the Barnes & Noble in Washington, D.C.’s posh Georgetown district, Nikki Sixx, the brains and cojones behind the ultra-hedonistic ’80s metal band Mötley Crüe, is eating a grilled eggplant sandwich. He is 48, and six-and-a-half years sober. And while he’s not a vegetarian, he says, taking a bite, he generally likes to separate his carbs from his proteins.
Not everything about him has changed, though. For example, his ’80s rocker aesthetic is more or less in tact: Marlborough dangling between the fingers (check); helmet of over-processed black hair (check); full-body schmear of tattoos (check); skull-and-crossbones bandana tucked into back pocket (check); layers of black on black clothing (check); liberal sprinkling of chains and studs (check and check). That said, the make-up is gone. Also, the whole look is updated with modern accessories from his own upscale rocker fashion line, Royal Underground—including a belt buckle adorned with the Hindu god Ganesh.
Sixx’s purpose for coming to the nation’s capital is dual. First, it’s the latest stop on his book tour to promote The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, an unexpectedly literary narco-memoir that chronicles the darkest year of his addiction struggles, Christmas of 1986 to Christmas of 1987, when he spent much of his time holed up in his bedroom closet with used-up heroin needles, a gun, and a head-full of paranoid delusions. The book, released in September, debuted at No. 7 on The New York Times bestsellers’ list. Last week, it ranked one notch higher than Bill Clinton’s philanthropy book, and just below the writings and reflections of Mother Teresa.
But Sixx is also in D.C. for another reason: to mark his transition in the public consciousness from hard-partying, narcissistic rock star to global spokesman for the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction, a disease that is estimated to affect one in four Americans. In mid-September, he became the first rock musician to speak at an event marking the beginning of National Drug & Alcohol Addiction Recovery Month, on Capitol Hill. And he was a hit.
About an hour ago, Sixx sat in a closed-door brainstorming session with Democratic congressman and recovering addict Patrick Kennedy—son of Senator Ted Kennedy—and Cynthia Moreno, the executive director of NAADAC, the U.S. Association for Addiction Professionals. Kennedy has been working to push through new legislation that will require insurance companies to treat coverage of addiction and mental health issues with the same urgency it treats physical health issues. Sixx, who is championing the bill, is there to figure out how to best use his celebrity to further the cause.
But now, the manager of the Georgetown Barnes & Noble rushes out into the alley to greet Sixx before the signing, and gush about all of the people who lined up in the wee hours to get their wristbands. “The first people in line drove all the way from Jacksonville, Fla.,”.)
Inside the big box bookstore, the crowd is chanting, “Sixx! Sixx! Sixx!” People are snaked through the book stacks, hundreds of them: teenage rockers with blue mohawks, middle-aged men in business suits, moms with digital cameras. Sure enough, the first family—a couple in their mid-30s and their 14-year-old daughter—had driven 11 hours from Florida the night before. “I’ve been a fan since probably age 12, since the Girls, Girls, Girls album,” says Lisa Harmon, the leader of this family. “They have a song called Angela, and so, as I started having children, I decided to name my first daughter Angela.” She motions to the skinny girl standing next to her; Angela smiles shyly. Lisa christened her next two kids with Crüe-derived names, too. Her husband—a slimmer Chris Farley, wearing eyeliner and a black T-shirt that reads, “Jesus is Coming (Hide the porn)”—is pumping Sixx’s hand wildly at the book-signing table. “Thanks for the moments,” he says. “And the parties, and the girls!” Lisa comes up behind him and interjects: “You spit water on me in Little Rock, Arkansas!” Later, gazing over her shoulder at him wistfully, she says: “He’s beautiful. I’ve never touched drugs in my life and I never will after reading his book. It’s such an inspiration, so I want to pass it on to my kids.”
Next in line is a little creature called Wee Sixx—a six-year-old boy named Nikki, after the bassist, who’s got fake tattooed shirtsleeves, a mini leather cuff with studs, and a fauxhawk with red tips. Wee Sixx, as his mom calls him, is wearing a home-made “Nikki” t-shirt that has a stage-blood stain on it that Sixx himself spit onto him during a concert his mom had taken him to. Several yards down the line, another Nikki, a 19-year-old girl from Pittsburg—also named after Sixx—reveals a tattoo of Sixx’s lyrics on her lower back. She is one of several people here tonight who intend to have Nikki’s signature etched in ink onto their skin. (These kinds of sweeping gestures are pretty much de rigueur on this book tour, Sixx’s publicist says. Fans go to great lengths to impress Sixx with their devotion. The previous week, in Clifton, N.J., one guy stood in line all day in a banana costume with a medical headlight. He was “Dr. Peelgood.” The joke fell flat.)
But very soon, the addiction stories start coming and the festive atmosphere turns unexpectedly confessional. Fans approach him with tales of a friend, a parent, a sister—all battling to ward off addiction with varying degrees of success. One polite young man tells Sixx he is a month-and-a-half out of the Betty Ford Clinic.
There is something about Sixx that makes people want to confess, to connect, to unburden. He’s like the High Priest of recovery. People regularly give him their AA sobriety chips. At a recent signing, a reader brought an empty bottle of Jack Daniels—the last bottle of alcohol he ever drank—for Nikki to sign. “My husband’s been clean three years,” one woman tells him, gesturing to her husband, as Sixx signs her book. “We work hard.” Another one says, “My sister’s an alcoholic. I think if she read the book, it would really help her a lot.” Throughout, Sixx has a seemingly inexhaustible well of goodwill, posing for all pictures, signing everything laid out in front of him—including bodies—hugging and kissing and mostly just listening and thanking-for-sharing.
Mike Arenas, a 33-year-old English teacher from Maryland, has been a Mötley Crüe fan since age 10, and sober for 10 years. “After reading this book,” he says, “I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’ve been in so many of these same situations.’” Now, he’s using The Heroin Diaries and lyrics from The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which Sixx scored and recorded with his band Sixx: AM, to teach inner city students about poetry and addiction issues. “I work with a lot of kids who are very, very challenging,” he says. “Gang kids. Drug abuse. Alcohol abuse. Abandoned kids, which is a huge theme in this book. I skip all the regular poetry that I know they’d hate and I bring this to them and they make this connection to it that I couldn’t get them to make with Robert Frost or something like that. I tell them, ‘This guy has changed my life and saved my life in so many different ways.’ ”
In general, the narrative arc of The Heroin Diaries is not so different from any Oprah-esque tale of fall and redemption. The difference (and for that matter, the devil) is in the details. Take a clichéd heterosexual male sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll fantasy, in which one is given the ability to indulge one’s basest whims—including maybe even whims that are so base, they’d never even occur to most people—and multiply it by a thousand. Maybe then, you’d come close to approximating a day in Sixx’s former life. He would like very much for Oprah to give his book her golden seal, but—at a quick glance, anyway—it doesn’t seem like a natural fit for Oprah’s core market of middle-class, middle-aged moms. There is, for instance, the stuff about the girlfriend-abuse, the gang bangs, and the snorting lines of cocaine off of hookers’ backs. And then there’s his uniquely candid approach to doling out advice: “Shitting and throwing up at the same time is not that attractive,” he told an XM radio deejay during an interview earlier in the day. “It won’t get you chicks.”
Still, with its real-time, unapologetically no-holds-barred approach, this is a book that has the potential to be among the most visceral and powerfully affecting records of the outsized nature of addiction. (Kids, if this guy couldn’t handle drugs and alcohol, you might want to consider a different hobby.) With The Heroin Diaries, Sixx lays out his filthiest laundry in all of its repugnant, paranoid, manipulative, plaintive glory. But the book also documents his climb out of the gutter, to a place where he could finally leave his anger over his irretrievably bungled childhood behind.

Today, he says, he is loving life. Being in control is now his greatest addiction. “I want to be in control even when I’m dead,” he says. Which is why, on his toe, he now has a tattoo that reads, “Tag here.”

I haven't had a chance to get the book, but the album is so amazing. It's so deep. It really touched me. I almost started sobbing listening to it because it pulled at my heart so much. Thank God for Nikki Sixx. I'm so glad that he's gotten through everything. He's such an inspiration.

Same. I will die if I don't ever get to see the Crue in concert. Motley Crue will never end.

And no matter what Vince ends up as; I will always worship him shamelessly.
