The co-founder and the bassist of Mötley Crüe, Nikki Sixx, recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and revealed that he has been working on not one but two books. However, he also said that they are probably not going to be released this year as he wants to do a proper book tour to support them and COVID-19 prevents him from doing so.
Although Nikki Sixx has achieved worldwide fame as Mötley Crüe’s bassist, he has also released three books since 2001. His first book ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,’ which he co-wrote with Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil, and New York Times writer Neil Strauss, was published in 2001 and it remained on the New York Times Bestseller list for four weeks.
It seems like Nikki Sixx really enjoyed writing and documenting his life, as in 2007, he published his first solo book ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star’ in which he included his diary entries from when he was struggling with heroin addiction and narrated his journey through drug-dependency and depression. It debuted at Number 7 on the New York Times Book Review bestseller list.
In 2011, he published his second book ‘This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx’ in which he opened up about everything that he went through as a famous rockstar and discussed the unknown and challenging aspects of being in the rock world.
With his recent tweet, Nikki Sixx revealed that he has been working on two books, and said that the subjects of each are completely different. However, he went on to inform his fans that the books will probably not be released this year due to COVID-19 as he wants to do a proper book tour to support them.
Here’s what Nikki Sixx said in his first tweet:
“I don’t know if my book(s) will be able to come out this year or not because of Covid but they will be ready to drop when we can officially do a book tour to support them.”
To which a fan responded:
“Can’t wait! What can we expect in your next book/books?”
And Nikki Sixx said:
“The books are not related in subject. Both books have uncharted territories…”
