I have always loved Nikki's music but never knew anything about the man. While reading this book I learned about the man behind the famous name. A very interesting and insightful book. I enjoyed reading about his perspective on life and his photographs are unique and amazing. ( )

Product Description
This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx
is part photo, part journal—but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his 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 experiences—from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Motley Crue, to his death from an OD and his eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.

Love story, bad-ass rock tell-all, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending—a search that fuels Sixx's being.
