In addition to being the primary songwriter for Motley Crue, bassist Nikki Sixx is also a New York Times bestselling author. His second book, This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography, and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx, landed at #4 on their “hardcover advice and misc.” chart. That’s actually a good way to describe the book. Picking up where The Heroin Diaries left off, it’s equal parts autobiography, self-help manual (without being preachy) and showcase for Sixx’s newest passion, photography. It’s a nice complement to his last book, as well as The Dirt, and something that should appeal to any fan of the Crue.
Metal Insider has a copy of the book to give away. Just leave a comment in the section below stating what your favorite Crue or Sixx A.M. song is and you’ll be registered to win.
