Nikki Sixx Refuses To ‘Thank’ The Protagonist Of His Return From A 2-Minute-Long Death

Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx shared a tweet on his Twitter account to point out the person behind his deadly overdose that lasted for two minutes.

Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy and Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx’s rocky relationship, filled with tragic accidents and near-death experiences, is widely famous in the rock scene. One of those incidents was mentioned in the band’s biopic ‘The Dirt,’ released in 2019. The incident was also a feature in Nikki Sixx’s book, ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star,’ where he discusses his near-death incident.

Andy McCoy didn’t receive the book and the movie well because he criticized the telling of Nikki Sixx’s near-death experience when he overdosed as lies. From his point of view, the film portrays the incident like he had O.D.ed and was beaten with baseball bats, but according to McCoy, he had brought Sixx back to life with his hands on his heart. The guitarist also criticized Sixx’s book as dishonest and not reflecting what truly happened to him. He had expected Nikki Sixx to at least thank him for saving his life.

On the other hand, according to Nikki Sixx, Andy McCoy was the one who gave him the drugs even though he knew Sixx was struggling with addiction. Nikki Sixx stated that McCoy expects a thank you for bringing him back to life, but he won’t give it to him. The reason he doesn’t thank McCoy for saving his life is that he was the one who gave him the drugs that almost took his life. Sixx mentioned that he understands that Andy is trying to capture the attention of fans for his projects, but he’s not telling the whole story.

Nikki Sixx’s tweet about his overdose is as follows:

“Andy McCoy has been on a rant saying I never thanked him for saving my life after a heroin overdose. It’s true. I also never thanked him for getting me the drugs during my deadly addiction that night. I get it; he’s just trying to sell a book, an album, or a club tour.”
