Back cover copy

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 overdose and eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.show more
