Nikki Sixx Announces The New Project He’s Working On These Days
Mötley Crüe’s co-founder and bassist Nikki Sixx announced with a post on his official Instagram account that he began to record his new book ‘The First 21’s’ audiobook.
As you may know, Mötley Crüe released an autobiographical book in 2001 called ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’ and revealed their secrets as a band. Not only their secrets but the band also showed the world how hard they rock and roll with a lot of sex, drugs, and alcohol.
Not everything they did had a reason, for example, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee broke bottles over each other’s heads and swallowed small light bulbs for no reason. The band decided to make all of this hard-partying immortal with a book. They released ‘The Dirt’ in 2001 and it showed clear influences of substance abuse yet the band and the reviews claimed it was fun at the time.
Later in 2007, Sixx released an individual book formed by his journals called ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.’ In this book, the bassist came clear about his drug addiction and explicitly explained all the hard times he went through during this time. In this autobiographical book, Sixx also included other peoples’ perspectives towards his addiction including his bandmates and ex-girlfriends. This book was number 7 in The New York Times Best Seller list.
The bassist led a very exciting life which he gladly immortalized. Recently, Sixx announced on his Instagram account that he began to record his upcoming book’s audiobook named ‘The First 21’ and asked his fans if they have pre-ordered it online.
Here is his announcement:
“Recording the audiobook for ‘The First 21’ for Hachette Books. Special thanks to Aaron Davis for making it sound good. Check out his music too. Get your book or audiobook pre-order yet?”
Both Sixx and the rest of the band were very open about their rock and roll party experiences before this. In his upcoming book, Sixx reveals his life before he changed his name from Frank Carlton Feranna to Nikki Sixx and the formation of his legendary legacy Mötley Crüe. ‘The First 21’ will be released in October 19, 2021 on Amazon.
