Anyone can be a bestselling author these days. Writing talent is an entirely optional requirement for getting your title on the New York Times list of book blockbusters, as evidenced by the success of the recent tome by Snooki from Jersey Shore.
When it comes to Nikki Sixx, however, were more than willing to give the Mötley Crüe bassist a free pass; particularly since the notorious rocker has many a torrid and tempestuous tale to tell. In his 2007 book, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, Sixx compiled diary entries of the time leading up to his overdose in 1987. His latest effort, This is Gonna Hurt, documents the highs and lows of the past three decades via photographs and stories.
Sixx stops by the Barnes and Noble at Desert Ridge Marketplace, 21001 North Tatum Boulevard, for a signing session at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 15.
