Love story, bad-ass rock tell-all, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt (Morrow, $29.99) is a collection of compelling photographs and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape this singular musician's 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 many experiences — from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Motley Crue, to his death from an over-dose and his eventual "rebirth" through music, photography, and love.
Sixx, who was born in San Jose, offers readers compelling insights as an artist and as a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending — a search that fuels this musician's everyday life.
In 1981, Sixx became the bassist for Motley Crue, the legendary rock band he started with friend Tommy Lee. Today, Sixx is a bestselling author, a nationally syndicated radio host, a solo artist, photographer, film maker, and a still loyal member of the Crue.
