Mötley Crüe : Nikki Sixx and the Heroin Diaries

Wednesday 29 August 2007 - 19:05:08 by Kivan

Motley Crue founding member Nikki Sixx whose
brutally honest upcoming book The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a
Shattered Rock Star (due September 18th from MTV Pocket Books/Simon & Schuster)
chronicles his battles with drug addiction and his road to recovery, will be a
featured speaker at the 18th Annual National Alcohol and Drug Addiction
Recovery Month luncheon on Capitol Hill, September 6th. He is the first rock
star to speak at this event -- a particularly ironic distinction since he was
once one of the wildest men in rock.

the Association for Addiction Professionals invited Sixx to share his story at
this national forum alongside Terry Cline, Ph.D, Administrator, Substance Abuse
and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and H. Westley Clark, MD,
JD, MPH, Director, SAMHSA
Center for Substance
Abuse Treatment.

Heroin Diaries, and accompanying CD, The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, (released
August 21st via Eleven Seven Music) offers insight into Sixx's self-
destruction with substance abuse, and his subsequent freedom from addiction.
The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, written and produced by Sixx: A.M. (Sixx, James
Michael and DJ Ashba), was inspired by haunting diary entries that became The
Heroin Diaries. Although the album was not intended for radio, the lead single,
Is Beautiful
" is already in the top 20 on the rock radio charts.

percent of the book's profits go to "Running Wild In The Night" --
Sixx's fundraising initiative for Covenant House California, which helps keep
runaway, abused and abandoned youth off the streets.

Hi !! I'm new and just found this great forum and I'm looking for the Heroin Diaries Soundtrack lyrics, I can't somehow find them as the CD isn't available in my country.
Hope to stay here for a long time.
Hope any can help, I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.
