Its Nikki Sixx

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you love Nikki Sixx or even like Motley Crue you have to hear this book. I read the book and then bought the audio book, He makes it so real. His voice is so soothing. The chapter about his sister Lisa makes me cry every time. You can hear the pain in his voice when he talks about her. He is a very proud man, proud of his children and proud of what he has done with his life from the dirt streets and heroin addiction to the man he has become today.

What does Nikki Sixx bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Himself in a raw form
