Nikki Sixx: Life lessons from a man who died twice

With his big hair, great name, and free spirit, Nikki Sixx is the quintessential rock star. After decades of touring with Motley Crue, the bassist, songwriter and producer has seen it all — twice.

But don’t let the rock star persona fool you, Sixx is much more than just a headbanger. The best-selling author, photographer and radio host stresses the importance of using his platform to make a difference.

“All around the world people are feeling hopeless,” the veteran rocker tells Shad. “It’s not an original idea, but it’s an important idea now: let’s unify.”

ar removed from his days of hard partying, the now-sober rocker joins Shad to discuss his new band Sixx:AM and their new double-album Prayers For The Damned. He also reflects on hard-won lessons from his Motley Crue days, and why he’s still motivated to create when many of his contemporaries have already hung it up.
