ON THE SIXX
Nikki Sixx, the tatted-up bassist of Mötley Crüe who has inspired many a YouTube video on how to achieve his perfectly teased mop of hair, has a new book, This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography, and Life Through the Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx. Author of The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, Sixx has apparently turned to photography to help him heal from all of those drug-and-alcohol-fueled years of hard partying and Playboy Playmates. The book shifts from a photo journal to a personal journal (full of bits of advice he calls Sixxisms), featuring about 150 portraits, all taken by Sixx, of amputees, drug addicts, prostitutes, and the homeless, as a tribute to misfits and outcasts everywhere. Take your photo with him tonight at this signing.
