I have to start out saying I was never a Motley Crue fan when they were huge To the best of my memory they only had two songs I can truly say I liked 'Shout at the Devil' and 'Dr Feelgood'Having established that fact I was blown away when I heard 'Life is Beautiful' on my favorite internet radio station wwwtherockfm I immediately had to find out who this Sixx AM band was AMG provided a wealth of information Sixx AM is a project put together by Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue fame The album was released as a companion disc for his new autobiography The Heroin Diaries Well I acuired the album the next day and WOW This was the best rock concept album since ueensryche's Operation Mindcrime Just to complete the experience I snagged the book from the library I have to say it was an intriguing read The layout was sometimes difficult to deal with red print on black paper is not easy on these old eyes but the story itself was enthralling Nikki's slide into the depths of addiction and the background information on several of rock music's venerable gods including Rick Neilsen's apparent antipathy toward Gene Simmons David Coverdale being described as 'the Richard Burton of Rock and Roll' and Vanity's insane behavior both as a coke whore and a minister make for some amusing anecdotes from the sleazy side of the spotlightsBut back to the album It is both a powerful concept album and a collection of hard rock gems The intermissions when segments of the diaries are read complement the flow of the songs and enhance the story I read in the Allmusic review of this album that Motley Crue fans would not like it Since I was never a fan I thought that explained it Then I wondered why if I liked this was I not a Motley Crue fan So I looked through the Motley Crue discography and I found that I liked and remembered a bunch of their songs I have to admit that Vince Neil's voice is a little on the ragged edge of my taste envelope but overall I don't have a problem with them any Which is odd because I thought I was supposed to stop liking metal when I got oldRecommnded songs 'Life is Beautiful' 'Van Nuys' 'Courtesy Call'Recommended for hard rock or metal fans in general Motley Crue fans ueensryche fanssorry this turned into an album review but they were released as companions

The Heroin DiariesAr he plunged to rock bottom and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again. 'Welcome to my nightmare'On December 23 1987 Nikki Sixx bassist from Motley Crue overdosed on heroin and was pronounced dead but was miraculously revived by paramedics with two injections of adrenalin to the heart The Heroin Diaries are his personal diary entries the year leading up to this day 'My bones were shakingmy heart was poundingI thought I was going to explode I'm glad I have you to talk to to write this downI tried to keep it all together but then I gave in to the madness and became one with my insanity'Dealing with depression and a troubling childhood on top of his addictions The Heroin Diaries is a brutal and raw recollection of life in a downward spiral but was nothing less than fascinating Fascinating in that he's still alive today December 23 1987 was not his only encounter with death and certainly didn't prevent him from staying away from drugs completely afterwards but it set in motion the changes he undergoes to get his life under control 'I can't find a way out of this hole i would like to say to myself If you're in a hole put down the shovel but I can't'I burned through it in record time; I was fascinated appalled and beyond shocked with each page This was a brutally honest depiction of the life of an addict and I applaud him for having the strength to put this out there for all to see I loved the various pictures illustrations and especially the current statements from people that are still living that were witnesses to the events that took place Not what I would consider an 'easy read' but is definitely worth your time
