Nikki Sixx 8/30/21

Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and DJ Ashba of Guns N’ Roses will release their Hits album on October 22. The band, SIXX:A.M. features lead singer, James Michael.

The band describes it as their “biggest hits and fan-favorite songs.”

Three days before the album comes out, Nikki Sixx will also release a new memoir called, The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx.

Sixx is globally recognized for his work with people in recovery and has been passionately vocal about the disastrous social effects of the opioid crisis in the USA and worldwide.

In 2007, SIXX:A.M. released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which acts as a companion piece to Sixx’s memoir of the same name. The book became a New York Times best seller in its first week. And the album spawned the #1 single, “Life Is Beautiful.”

Their latest release was a reworked version of the song, “Maybe It’s Time,” which came out in August of last year.
