FIRST EVER ROCK N ROLL SELF HELP BOOK DEBUTS AT #4 ON NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST ACCOMPANYING ALBUM RELEASED NEXT WEEK.
The already two-time New York Times bestselling author Mötley Crue’s Nikki Sixx’s latest offering, “This Is Gonna Hurt: Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx” (William Morrow) has just reached the #4 spot on The New York Times Best-Sellers list. Written as a tribute to Sixx’s institutionalized sister, the book (and companion album) explores what true beauty is and embraces our own power around that. Written entirely by Sixx with no ghostwriter, the book is part journal, part memoir, and part social commentary and features his original photography. Sixx is currently on a national book-signing tour. He continues to host his syndicated radio program Sixx Sense and The Side Show Countdown With Nikki Sixx (www.sixxsense.com)
Sixx’s “other band”, Sixx:A.M. is currently enjoying success with the track “Lies Of The Beautiful People.” Also entitled “This Is Gonna Hurt”, the album is due out May 9th via Eleven Seven Music. Sixx:A.M. is James Michael (vocals), Dj Ashba (guitar) and Nikki Sixx (bass).
http://Sixxammusic.com will launch in conjunction with the record, offering fans an up close and personal online relationship with the band for the first time.
"I am grateful and inspired that I have the opportunity to touch people in a unique way with my book THIS IS GONNA HURT and with the music I create with James and D.J. in Sixx:A.M. Traveling around the country, meeting fans and hearing their stories in person and on my radio show has reenergized my commitment to creating honest and inspirational content that not only serves my own creative purposes but can help and touch others as well,” Said Nikki Sixx.
