Filled with color photographs the Motley Crue bassist has taken himself and stories he’s written himself, ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’ is an honest look at his life, through his own camera lens. The book is the companion piece to Sixx:A.M.’s highly successful CD of the same name. To pre-order the paperback visit

‘This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography, and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx’ is part photo, part journal — but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Combining the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller, ‘The Heroin Diaries’, with a photographic journey, ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’ chronicles Sixx’s experiences — from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Motley Crue, to his overdose and eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.

Nikki Sixx is currently writing with James Michael for the third Sixx:A.M. album. Today the bassist stated, “Wrote a couple sick ass song ideas for Motley Crue this week… back to Sixx:A.M. this weekend. I am really feeling creative and excited about music.”
