Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx Addresses The Future Of His Postponed Project
Nikki Sixx recently revealed a project he was planning to do but had to cancel due to the pandemic. He opened up about the matter on Twitter after a fan brought it up, wondering what happened to it.
Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx has suffered from substance and alcohol addiction for a very long time. With his band, the bassist partied hard and made a name for the world to call them the most notorious band of all time. Their stories were documented and made into a Netflix biopic starring Machine Gun Kelly and Douglas Booth called ‘The Dirt.’
The rocker became very close to death when his heart stopped for about two minutes and was announced dead until the paramedics unexpectedly brought him back to life. Not long after the incident, the bassist decided to go sober and be aware of his actions.
Currently, the Mötley bassist is happily married and leading a calmer life with his wife, Courtney. He penned down his experiences in the book ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star’ to make up for the years he had lost to drugs.
In the book, he talks about the dark times in his life when he had intensely experienced heroin. He journaled down his emotions and his feelings when under the influence. The book is known to have raised awareness about addiction as Sixx aimed. He once considered doing a theatre production of the book but was sadly delayed because of the pandemic.
The bassist recently addressed this in a tweet after a fan brought it up. Nikki Sixx stated in his Twitter post that although his team was close to production rehearsals before the pandemic, they now put the project on hold. Moreover, Sixx revealed that a theatre performance of his book could’ve raised more awareness in terms of addictions and the recovery process.
Here is what the fan asked:
“I have a question about a theatre performance based on ‘Heroin Diaries.’ After the MC tour, can we count on returning to this project and completing it? It’s so surprising you don’t mention it.”
“We were heading towards production rehearsals when Covid hit. Right now, it’s on hold. Sadly. I felt it could have helped raise even more awareness around opioid addiction and recovery.”
