The co-founder and bass guitarist of Mötley Crüe, Nikki Sixx, recently posted a photo on his Instagram account and paid tribute to a late rockstar while showing off a priceless Christmas gift he got.
As you know, Nikki Sixx actively uses his social media accounts, and Instagram is one of his favorite platforms. You may have noticed that Nikki’s posts have changed during the past month. Even though in the past he enjoyed using his Instagram account to share sneak peeks from his life and photos of Mötley Crüe, his account has now become more artistic.
Since the beginning of December, Nikki Sixx has been posting photos almost every day and it turns out that Nikki Sixx is not only a successful bassist but also, a pretty talented photographer. He even changed his Instagram account name to ‘Nikki Sixx Pixx’ and has been actively posting photos he has taken on his second ‘Nikki Sixx Photography’ account.
Recently, he posted a framed photo of David Bowie which was taken and signed by the legendary English rock world photographer Mick Rock and thanked Full Circle Frameworks for framing and giving him such a priceless piece of art. Sixx seems to have already hung up his special Christmas gift which he clearly appreciated a lot.
Nikki Sixx also said that he will have this piece in his songwriting area so that it can keep inspiring him. It looks like the holiday season has been treating Nikki really well and there is no doubt that a precious gift such as this one definitely deserved to be shared and appreciated on Instagram.
Here’s what Nikki Sixx wrote in the caption of his Instagram post:
“Thanks to Rocky over at Full Circle Frameworks for giving me this amazing Bowie print signed and taken by Mick Rock. It’s gonna go in my songwriting area to keep me inspired.”
