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

Posted May 9th, 2007 by eric · No Comments

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?
