Set against the frenzied world of heavy metal superstardom, the co-founder of legendary Motley Crue offers an unflinching and gripping look at his own descent into drug addiction.

He spent days - sometimes alone, sometimes with others addicts, friends and lovers - in a coke- and heroin-fuelled daze. THE HEROIN DIARIES reveals Nikki's personal diary entries alongside commentary from the people who know Nikki best including band mates Tommy, Vince and Mick. The book is a candid look at a nightmare come true: a punishing heroin addiction that brought Nikki to the edge of losing his talent, his career, his family and finally to a near-fatal overdose which left him clinically dead for a few minutes before being revived. Brutally honest, utterly riveting and shockingly moving, THE HEROIN DIARIES follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.

Description :


In honor of the ten-year anniversary of The Heroin Diaries, Nikki Sixx’s definitive and bestselling memoir on drug addiction is reissued with exclusive new content. This shocking, gripping, and at times darkly hilarious memoir explores Nikki’s yearlong war with a vicious heroin addiction. Now more than ever, with opioid addiction ravaging our country and rising by twenty percent in the past year alone, Nikki’s story of both his descent into drug-addled decay and subsequent recovery and transition into a rehabilitation advocate are now more relevant than ever. When Mötley Crüe was at the height of its fame, there wasn’t any drug Nikki Sixx wouldn’t do. He spent days—sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers—in a coke- and heroin-fueled daze. The highs were high, and Nikki's journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions. Here, Nikki shares the diary entries—some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre—of those dark times. Joining him are Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Slash, Rick Nielsen, Bob Rock, and a host of ex-managers, ex-lovers, and more. Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and surprisingly moving, The Heroin Diaries follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom—and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.

Time Magazine quipped at the start of the Millennium in their gossip section that the Backstreet Boys might be transforming into the Millennium's new Motley Crue now that 'Nikki Sixx has mellowed up...' Following an almost 3-decade education in rebellion as Hard Rock's mad musical scientist- highlighted by a now-infamous (and temporarily lethal) heroin overdose; relationships with some of Hollywood's most lucious leading ladies, including Vanity, Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt, Baywatch Star Donna D'Errico, and L.A. Ink star Kat Von D; and an almost 30-year, multi-platinum run (selling over 80 million albums worldwide) as the creative center of hard rock's most decadent and notorious rock band, Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx legacy among rock and metal fans worldwide is secure. Chronicled via Sixx's own diary entries, as well as through exclusive interviews with many of those closest to Sixx, including Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former live-in girlfriend (and multi-platinum rock artist) Lita Ford, legendary hard rock producers Bob Rock, Tom Werman, and Scott Humphrey, co-founding member of London Lizzie Grey, legendary rock photographer Neil Zlozower, Sixx A.M. band member and Sixx songwriting/producing partner James Michael, late recovery specialist to the stars Bob Timmons (who aided Sixx through his substance abuse recovery), 58 collaborator Dave Darling, former Motley Crue/Brides of Destruction bandmate John Corabi, and late Quiet Riot frontman Kevin Dubrow (recounting Sixx's pre-Crue audition for Randy Rhodes-era Quiet Riot), among many others. Updated from its original 2003 publication through the summer of 2009, and including a free bonus sampler featuring unsigned/up and coming Millennium rock/metal bands influenced by Sixx's songwriting, 'An Education in Rebellion: The Biography of Nikki Sixx' promises to paint for its readers both a vividly intimate and wildly colorful portrait of the life and times of one of Hard Rock's most important and influential icons!

Description :


I am Tommy Lee, born Thomas Lee Bass in Athens, Greece, on October 3, 1962, and raised in a suburb of California by an American father and a Greek mother. At seventeen, I joined Mötley Crüe and we became one of the baddest-ass rock bands in history. We sold over 40 million albums, we wreaked havoc, we scared parents, and we titillated too many fathers' daughters. I've been married three times: once for just a few days to a Penthouse Pet, for seven years to Heather Locklear, and then for five years to Pamela Anderson, with whom I have two beautiful sons. I've gotten into a lot of fights and I've been to jail a few times. But this book isn't your typical journey in a straight line from day one to day now. I'm more interested in revealing what's most important about my life, like how I cook my steaks; what I think of the tabloids, the truth, my ex-wives, my ex-band, my music; and what an innocent observer might find hanging around my house any given Sunday. You'll get plenty of facts and I'll tell you a story, but my real mission here is to paint you a picture of my life. I want to show you how my memories smell. I'd like to get into it now, so please take your seats. I advise you to keep your arms and legs inside the car at all times. If you have a pacemaker, a heart condition, or if you are pregnant or too damn short to reach the safety bar, I ask that you turn back immediately. Those with weak stomachs, strict morals, or chronic indigestion should put the book down now. For the rest of you, there's one truth that's real across the board: What you send out is what you get back. Send out the good, people, and it will come back to you. There's another thing I've learned over the years, in court, in fights, and in arguments with people I love: There isn't one truth, there are many. This book is my truth. NOTE: THE EBOOK DOES NOT INCLUDE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT APPEAR IN THE PRINT EDITIONS.

Description :


As a young man from a loving, middle class family living in a small English village, Ben Rogers appeared to have it all....but then he found drugs. As his life descended into chaos and despair, Ben began to chronicle his daily struggles with the aid of a video camera. He was hopeful that one day his experiences could be used to educate others. Ben lost his battle against addiction and died when he was 34 as a result of medical withdrawal. His family decided to release the tapes in the hope that other families could benefit. The result was the highly acclaimed, award winning SKY documentary, 'Ben, Diary of a Heroin Addict' which was shown on national television 27 times and ultimately across the world. Ben's mother, Anne, received hundreds of letters and messages, not only from addicts but also from families saying that the documentary had helped them realise that they weren't alone. The film took Ben's mum to the Home Office, with interviews on national television, radio and the press. She has spoken with many young offenders desperate to educate other youngsters about addiction and to honour her son's wishes. The book includes writings and drawings by Ben which give a unique insight into the chaos surrounding drug addiction. His brother and sisters contribute too to the story of a family living on the edge. 'Ben, Diary of a Heroin Addict – A Mother's Fight' is both an attack against the government's tolerance of addiction and a powerful and moving depiction of one family's love.

Description :


"Light illuminates the path of humanity: it is our own fault if we go over the brink." -Aleister Crowley Aleister Crowley was a noted and controversial occultist, ceremonial magician and poet. He has been called "the wickedest man in the world, or "The Great Beast 666, or "The Master Therion", but he remained a highly influential figure over Western esotericism and the counterculture. "Diary of a Drug Fiend", is his first published novel, and is also reportedly the earliest known reference to the Abbey of Thelema in Sicily. Crowley took as his example Dante's "Divine Comedy" partitioned off in three parts of the same triptych: PARADISO, INFERNO, & PURGATORIO, which affords him to delineate all these aspects of what it is to be a drug fiend. The story is enchanting and you are swept up into the pages about the ecstacy and agony of drug usage. The realism presented here no doubt stemmed from Crowley's own dabbling with the various powders. Intoxicating, powerful, often incredibly disconcerting, this book is a tour de force by a truly great novelist. In summation, this unusual book is a classic must-read among lovers and aspirants of Literature, scholars and historians in the field of drug addiction and psychology. This novel is also recommend to students of the occult, as it serves as an excellent introduction to the Doctrine of Thelema.

Mötley Crüe's lead singer and rock's ultimate bad boy, Vince Neil, lets the real dirt fly in this raw, raunchy, and completely uncensored road trip through the unbelievable depths of rock n' roll debauchery. You've seen The Dirt on Netflex, now read the nitty gritty stories in Vince's own words. For 30 years, Vince Neil has been one of rock's most notorious frontmen. From sex tapes with porn stars and multiple arrests for drunk and disorderly behavior to his turns as a strip club and tattoo parlor owner, his antics make Mick Jagger look like a choirboy. Now, he tells the whole story, in his own words, as it has never been told before. The glory days of excess. Vince's break with the band and his arduous re-uniting with its members, especially Tommy Lee. The tragic death of his daughter Skylar. And, for the first time, Vince painfully opens up about his actions (and lack of real consequences) surrounding his part in the drunk-driving death of his friend Razzle. Then there are the stories and anecdotes that even hardcore Crue fans don't know. We also hear the voices of his friends, rock star cronies, ex-wives, family, and children in an effort to get to the heart of the matter. Tattoos and Tequila reveals the real Vince Neil, from his many vices--booze, sex, and many, many women, to his personal and private tragedies and triumphs as a musician and businessman. Sexy, shocking, and revelatory, this is the first personal account of one of rock's most troubled, outrageous, and flamboyant stars.
