Sixx: A.M. and former Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx was asked in an interview with Team Rock if he remembered much of the Eighties, a time when he was heavily using drugs. Sixx replied, "Not much. They were challenging. I don’t understand why I could only do one or two things when I can do so many now." He added, "Lifestyle had a lot to do with it. There was a lot of negative energy. Rebellion is fatiguing to the rebel. It’s like the boxer who goes in swinging. He just wears himself out. These days I like to go 12 rounds."
Sixx told us a while back that he was not quite himself in his drug days: "I mean, it was a different person. Even though it was the same person in flesh, you know, in spirit it was a person that was on a kamikaze mission. And now I have a different mission."
- Although Sixx admitted that he did have some good times while on drugs, he said if he had any advice for his 21-year-old self,; it would be to "try not to snort Colombia."
- Sixx, who was legally declared dead after an overdose in December 1987 but was revived, added, "I’m not scared of death at all. In my own broken philosophy, if you live your life right, death is something to look forward to. It gives you a reason to be alive."
- Sixx: A.M. recently set November 18th as the release date for Prayers For The Blessed Vol. 2, the companion piece to last April's Prayers For The Damned Vol. 1.
- Prayers For The Damned followed up 2014's Modern Vintage. The first single, "Rise," reached Number Three on the rock radio chart.
- Sixx A.M. is currently on a massive North American tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown that hits Canada all this month and begin its U.S. leg on October 18th in Little Rock, Arkansas.
