Nikki Sixx is a man of many passions, as evidenced by his career as a successful author, photographer and radio host as well as the musical work he's best known for as a member of Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M. On Saturday (Jan. 26), Sixx was able to reveal his latest creative venture, the new 'Schecter Sixx' signature series bass, during the NAMM convention in Anaheim, California.
Congrats to Nikki Sixx, the winner of the 2012 Loudwire Music Award for Bassist of the Year. The veteran rocker carried over some of his Sixx: A.M. momentum from 2011 and then kept things going by joining Motley Crue for their summer tour with Kiss. In addition, the Crue did keep fans satiated with their new single, 'Sex.'
While many may have figured that 2013 would be when we'd see new Motley Crue music, it turns out that Nikki Sixx also has plans for his other band as well. According to a new posting on the Sixx: A.M. Facebook page offered by Sixx himself, the group is looking to release a new album next year.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx may hold some sort of record when it comes to turning something negative into a positive. Sixx found success with his memoir 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star' in 2007, and now the bassist has revealed that he'll be turning the book into a Broadway play.
Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba has a new gig, and no, he's not leaving GNR or Sixx: A.M., his other band. He's been named the celebrity spokesman for BullyVille.com. It's a cause close to his heart, as he endured a rough upbringing being bullied not by his peers but by his father. Ashba, 39, became involved in this initiative since he lives next door to the site's founder in Las Vegas and he appreciates the fact that it creates almost a safe haven and offers a supportive resource for kids, something he did not have growing up.
