Trust me. Read this book!
In the book you will read about his heroin battle, What it make him do and think, The paranoia the heroin caused him to develop, His secret sister who passed away during this time, His relationship with his mother and sister, The loss of his beloved granmother, The antics that hapoened in motley crue, His girlfriends, The groupies, His marriages, The affair he had, The births of his children.
It also gives details about Nikki's early life and why he turned to drugs. It also tells how he beat his addiction and went on to help others who have addictions too. It is great read and I highly recommend it to rock fans.
To glue it altogether we get contributions from other musicians who all verify what Sixx has written. He came across in 1987 as quite a despicable indivudual- evidently with a massive drug problem. Some of the entries you will be reading twice in disbelief. Somehow Sixx made it out, how he did no one knows but he did. And hence this book, and a quite different man at the end of it.
A great read that once finished you will find yourself picking up from time to time.
The pages are illustrated with doodles, and drawings that match his on/off love affair with heroin.
Great read for fan's of the band, and those interested in the mind of a musician, but there are needle and syringe images lovingly drawn throughout, over 1/3 of the book is unreadable if you happen to be one of the 10% who are needlephobic.
My advice? Buy the book, and get someone to read it with you if you can't look yourself. It's worth the extra hassle to understand the passion, addiction and backstory of one of rock's most iconic figures.
