Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx revealed that he was going to write a book about a different subject before he decided to work on his latest work during his latest appearance on Nikki Omen Show.

Along with his career as a successful musician, Sixx is a very accomplished author of best-seller books, ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’ which he co-wrote with his bandmates, ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star,’ and ‘This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography, and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx.’

The bassist released his fourth book entitled ‘The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx’ on October 19, 2021, and it’s based on the musician’s journey of becoming a rock star although being born as a farm boy. The book received very positive reviews from his fans and many book critics.

During his interview, Nikki Sixx unveiled that he actually wanted to write a book on finance to advise the artists who have lost their money because of management issues. However, the bassist thought it wasn’t ‘sexy’ enough for him and decided to write a memoir instead. However, it looks like he’s invested in the idea, as Nikki said he could release it when he gets older.

Sixx said in his interview that:

“I was originally writing a finance book to help artists who come into money like myself, a lot of athletes and actors with no financial, real understanding of money and they ended up bankrupt. It breaks my heart when people spend their whole life working at their craft and then lose everything because they don’t have any.

So it was a kind of a short idea for a book. The more I thought about it, I was like ‘That’s not very sexy.’ Maybe I’ll write that in when I’m 72 or 75. I started this idea of going back and exploring my youth, and I got to connect to my friends when I was 13 or 12 and my family.”
