Nikki Sixx took the term rockstar to a new level. As they grow older, they are driven by their art and the chips on their shoulders and get involved with drugs. Heart Failure- 1,464 plays 10. Somehow he miraculously kept a diary in 1987. No, what one of these records does is affect the listener to the point where he or she is permanently changed. Even now, whenever I hear the song Louder Than Hell I am instantly transported back in time to the railroad bridge.
It's great reading, it's a great book. I wanted to remove my mind all together - especially the part that hurt. Anyone who tells you differently is either lying or part of the 1%. He tried to put his own mother in jail. Or just if you love shiny shiny books. But they were also the most dangerous band around that time.
The show was about a month after I turned fourteen and as a birthday present I went with my best friend and her older brother and a friend of his. If that little bit of fluff comes hand in hand with lots of sex and large quantities of drug use, so much the better. This was the year he was strung out on heroin and overdosed on two occasions. This book shows Nikki's diary excepts from Christmas Day 1986 to the same day a year later. Interspersed with photographs, artwork, lyrics, and other extras made it even more interesting.
I thought I was going to explode. Never having been a fan of Motley Crew I think I may be a little young I first heard Life is Beautiful on the radio and fell in love with the song. And its wrong for someone whom over people look up to god knows why to pretend to be telling a cautionary tale about drugs and the excesses and emotional turbulence that can lead to drug abuse, when in fact they are really glorifying drugs abuse because lets be honest all the cool party hard people take loads of drugs, all the cool famous people you look up to take drugs and really you just haven't partied hard unless you have a drug problem, sure you may 'die' a couple times Nikki, people's organs don't shut down, then miraculously start up again, good story but, no but that's just an awesome story to tell people later on about how fucking hardcore you were back in the day! If you're looking for a book that is very serious, sometimes funny, heartbreaking and uplifting. To be honest, it was getting tiresome anyway. It needs to be listened to, and in the correct order none of this shuffle nonsense for it to be fully appreciated, and read the book. This is interesting and it doesn't matter if you loathe hairbands from the 80s or have never heard of Motley Crue. I decided to read this book after listening to my husband's cd The Heroin Diaries soundtrack by Sixx A.
His father was a white British graphic artist; his mother, a black American costume designer. One of the last paragraphs that I loved You know, it's pretty easy reading this book to see why I was angry and confused for all those years. When the band wasn't touring, Sixx was near death in his bedroom closet taking heroin, cocaine and other drugs nonstop. Everybody that I know that's done heroin, they do heroin and they're out. I laughed until I coughed.
It's very interesting to read someone go through a downward spiral of addiction and I would say destruction, because he and Tommy kind of did some destruction of property while high on cocaine. So I looked through the Motley Crue discography and I found that I liked and remembered a bunch of their songs. It comes down to a common theme with so many that have walked this path, whether to this extreme or perhaps might be looking at a similar decline or even knowing of those who unfortunately didn't make it. Even if dabble in modern textures here, this never sounds like a desperate attempt to sound modern, since everything in this music is designed to mirror 's voyage into heroin hell. Why can't he say that word? From the sound of it, he accomplished this just barely. The book's artwork is sometimes hard to look at: blood-spattered and interspersed with pictures of Nikki and friends from that time period.
It leads up to the night that he died for two minutes after his infamous heroin overdose and how he eventually turned his life around, but not without a few more bumps along the way. What happened during their life to lead them down this path? He tried to put his own mother in jail. This book had been on the verge of being published since forever, and I really wish it had been, especially before 'the Dirt'was released. They get heavier and tougher to carry through the years and thank God Nikki Sixx was finally able to let go and let God take care of his so that he could begin to heal from the inside. When the band wasn't touring, Sixx was near death in his bedroom closet taking heroin, cocaine and other drugs nonstop. Drugs have brought me to my knees and I knew it.
Especially getting other points-of-view inserted to help expand. There's a lot of spoken word, pulled directly from the pages of Nikki Sixx's journals, but along with that are lyrics that will pull at your heart-strings and put you in the world of the addict - which is scary, depressing, and self-loathing. It's here: This was a dissertation that was worthy of any psychological study. It will probably tell some version of your story, or my story. Thumbs up to Nikki Sixx for being brave enough to expose his weakness in the hope of helping others!! You will also read about the effect his unstable childhood had on his adult life. Kudos to Nikki Sixx for sharing such a brutal, heartbreaking, and emotional time in his life with the world. It also tells how he beat his addiction and went on to help others who have addictions too.
