In one of the most unique memoirs of addiction ever published, MÖtley CrÜe's Nikki Sixx shares mesmerizing diary entries from the year he spiraled out of control in a haze of heroin and cocaine, presented alongside riveting commentary from people who were there at the time, and from Nikki himself. When MÖtley CrÜe was at the height of its fame, there wasn't any drug Nikki Sixx wouldn't do. He spent days -- sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers -- in a coke and heroin-fueled daze. The highs were high, and Nikki's journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions. Here, Nikki shares those diary entries -- some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre -- and reflects on that time. Joining him are Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Slash, Rick Nielsen, Bob Rock, and a host of ex-managers, ex-lovers, and more. Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and shockingly moving, The Heroin Diaries follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom -- and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.

Well, it is and it isn’t. When you haven’t dealt with your childhood pain, struggle with depression and a crushing loneli...

Thoughts while reading this book: 1. Nikki Sixx is indestructible2. Everything I thought I knew about rock stars, tours, drugs, and sex is all true, and then some3. Stories about throwing drugs out a hotel window are funny if it doesn't kill you4. Nikki Sixx can still manage to be funny even when co...
