Multi-format ‘Heroin Diaries’ from former junkie Nikki Sixx

Posted May 9th, 2007 by eric

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is set to release his first solo album, entitled The Heroin Diaries, which shares its name with a forthcoming memoir by the budding author. Clearly inspired by the success of Motley Crue’s amazingly un-put-down-able autobiography, Dirt, Sixx evidently has more stories about his drug struggles. If he can top anything in Dirt, it should be mind-boggling. And according to Blabbermouth, it does: “The book is a tell-all covering 12 months in Sixx’s battle against addiction, drawn from Nikki’s 1986 and ’87 journals, and reportedly makes Motley Crue’s celebrated Dirt, now being made into a motion picture, sound like Mary Poppins. Holy shit. And to be fair, Sixx was the main song-writer in Motley Crue, so his solo record should be better than, say, any of Vince Neil’s, at the very least. And that’s saying something, right?
