Sixxth Chance

Nikki Sixx is my fucking hero.
He's died 3 times, lived to tell about it and touched many lives.
It all started in 7th grade language arts class which is a fancy way of saying Writing class. We were assigned to do a report on a book that reflected a common problem, then report on that. Being the 80's fan I am, I chose to do Nikki Sixx's book and disguise that as drug crimes. You know because I love reading diaries of crack and heroin addicted bass players.
Honestly I had no idea how scary his book is. Not kidding. I thought it would be a little...I don't know. Not this.
And listening to the soundtrack that goes with it? Seriously you will never do weed.

I know Nikki isn't a great rolemodel to most. But I'm never doing drugs, that's for damn sure.

  1. I'm glad to hear that your heroes can impact you like that! I'm with you on the drug thing...don't throw your life away, it is way too hard to rebuild... Nikki Sixx can attest to that first hand...it is a miracle that he is alive.
