Nikki Sixx,bassist, is known for cofounding the band Motley Crue
with drummer, Tommy Lee
. He is now with a new band, Sixx:A.M.
along with DJ Ashba
and James Michael
. They have a cd out that is the soundtrack to "The Heroin Diaries"
, a book written about the life of Sixx at his lowest point in life as he was addicted to cocaine and heroin. The book is direct writings from his diaries at the time with quotes from himself now and friends and family as well. Nikki died twice. The first time was at a drug house in the slums and the "drug dealer" of the house tried to revive him by hittin his chest with a bat, which didnt work, so he threw him in a dumpster where he came back to life. The next time he overdosed, he was pronounced dead then the ambulance driver that arrived was a Crue fan and basically said, "This is Nikki Sixx, he is not gonna die today!!" and gave him two shots of adrenaline in the heart and revived him. Nikki is now sober and doing great charity work and has a clothing line out.
Nikki Sixx is the greatest inspiration to our generation.
