Nikki Sixx Releases “This Is Gonna Hurt,” with Book Signing Tour

Nikki Sixx: This Is Gonna HurtMotley Crue/Sixx A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx has just released his second book, entitled This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx. The 224-page book is a mixture of his photography and a journal that dives into his inner thoughts.

“It’s definitely not an autobiography,” he told Billboard.com. “I don’t write with an editor in mind or critique myself. It’s just me shooting from the hip. Sometimes it’s tirades and rants. Sometimes it’s very focused. Sometimes it’s very sentimental and soft and reflective… It’s all my opinion, and I stand by it.”

The book, which is the follow-up to his bestseller Heroin Diaries, will be accompanied by a soundtrack album by Sixx A.M. that will be released in May.
