NIKKI SIXX Checks In

MÖTLEY CRÜE/SIXX A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx has issued the following update:

"Home has recharged the batteries and seamless creativity is flowing again.....

"I always love it when a friend turns me onto a book, music or something I haven’t heard about or seen before. There's some cool stuff out and about and I thought you might like it too.

"I took Katherine [Nikki's girlfriend, tattoo artist and 'L.A. Ink' star Kat Von D] to see 'Nevermore - An Evening With Edgar Allen Poe' at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood. Jeffrey Combs delivers the arrow to the heart in this one-man play. This is a must-see. We loveeeeed it.

"As a teenager,I feel in love with Hieronymus Bosch. Recently his work has re-struck a chord in me and I am admittedly on the verge of being obsessed.

"If you're a fan of 1400s -1500s European painters, you owe it to yourself to Google his work.

"Audio books have taken over my life recently. In this fast-paced world we live in, multi tasking is taking over our lives. I do it sometimes, and hate that I get caught up in it. Trying to boil down to simple things like just writing a song, not answering emails while having lunch with a friend or talking on the phone during a long ride somewhere with your girlfriend seems like more work than it should. One way to block out the noise in your life is to listen to audio books on the ride (plains, trains and automobiles). Unless your with someone, of course...hahahah....

"Three audio books I would like to recommend are:

* 'Tuesday With Morrie' by Mitch Albom (an oldie but goodie)
* 'A New Earth' by Eckhart Tolle
* 'The Mirror Effect' by Dr Drew

"On a personal, front my photography is challenging me to go to new heights. I sometimes wonder if I'll ever get to the level I am striving for. It can be so frustrating and challenging, as I said before, maybe I should just give in a shoot 8 by 10.

"New SIXX: A.M. music is coming along nicely but no deadline or release dates to even consider. I will say it feels like the next logical step musically for the band. James [Michael, vocals] used the word 'important' in describing the new lyrics.

Everything is in full-on creative mode right now and that's when the magic really happens.

"That's really all for now.

"I hope you're all enjoying the change of season and look forward to some exciting news to share with you in the near future."
