Motley Crue bassist’s book delayed
The projected publication date of MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx’s “The Heroin Diaries” — a book drawn from his 1986 and ’87 journals, when he was in the throes of a heroin addiction — has reportedly been pushed back to next summer from the previously announced October/November.
Sixx previously said about the book, “The more it sells, the more awareness on drug and alcohol addiction and the more money it will raise for ‘Running Wild in the Night’ and ‘Covenant House’. It’s really a great read now that all the pieces of the puzzle are in place. So many people came to the table to tell there side of the story relating to the actual diary entries.
“The title of the book is somewhat misleading ’cause it also deals with my family problems as a kid, depression as well as my downward spiral into freebase and pill addiction as well etc. etc.
“Lemmy [MOTÖRHEAD] wrote a short medical history for the beginning of the book, very demented — like only Lemmy can be.
“There is an album’s worth of songs already written for a soundtrack to the book ready to record. I’d say its very ’70s glam sounding. Bits remind me of BOWIE and T.REX, with a darker edge to the melodies and lyrics.”
