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 out..." 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 luscious 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 80,000,000 records worldwide) as the creative center of hard rock's most decadent and notorious rock band, Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx's 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, 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 band mate John Corabi, late Quiet Riot frontman Kevin Dubrow (recalling Sixx's 1980 pre-Crue audition for Quiet Riot), among many others. Updated from its original 2003 publishing 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!! "Nikki Sixx is the lifeblood of Motley Crue." - Bob Rock "Nikki Sixx is a rock and roll icon." - Paul Gargano, former Editor in Chief, Metal Edge Magazine "I think Nikki Sixx will be remembered as having one of the great, loud, tortured, decadent pens of any songwriter of the heavy metal era." - Lonn Friend, Former Editor, R.I.P "Nikki Sixx is one of the examples of why I continue to do my work, and that's probably the highest compliment I know to pay Nikki Sixx."- Bob Timmons,Recovery Specialist
