Nikki Sixx Adapting Memoir for Broadway

Rolling Stone

Nikki Sixx is bringing his candid memoir to the stage, the Mötley Crüe bassist said last week on Twitter. Sixx's book The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star has inspired a new Broadway musical, and Sixx told the BBC that he's hoping for a "late 2013 or early 2014" opening for the show. The Heroin Diaries is a collection of Sixx's journal entries from 1986 to 1987 as Mötley Crüe recorded Girls, Girls, Girls, and was published in 2007, along with a soundtrack by Sixx's other band, Sixx:A.M. Each of the soundtrack's 13 songs correspond to one month in his journal.
