Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx says he wants to release a children’s book in 2022

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx plans to release a children’s book next year and says in a new interview that he and his wife are currently working on the title.

In a recent conversation with The Aquarius (as reported by gossip), Sixx explained that his as-yet-untitled foray into the world of children’s literature would follow the adventures of “this little girl who goes to all these lands in her imagination”.

Referring to what those adventures might involve, Sixx said the book’s lead role could travel to Africa, where “she’s got a little African boy or girl who teaches her about that culture,” or to Wyoming, where she’s “learned about horses.” learns” before leaving for Japan. to learn “about the food and the culture and the language”.

Sixx set a release for the book in 2022 and then further explained his concept in another interview with Radio BOB! He told the German broadcaster that his book is “for parents to read to children about diversity and especially around the last government”, admitting that it “really disturbed [him] how everyone was so divided” after Donald Trump became the 45th president of the US.

For seasoned fans of Sixx’s tenure in Mötley Crüe, the idea of ​​the bassist branching out into children’s entertainment may come as a shock. The heavy metal outfit has long had a reputation for being quite the hellraisers, with decades of controversy surrounding their satanic imagery and culture of drug use.

In 2019, Sixx said Mötley Crüe “has nothing to worry about” in the #MeToo era, despite the band being synonymous with tales of lewd behavior.

Sixx – who is currently on a promotional tour for his new memoir, The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx – recently celebrated 20 years of sobriety. Sixx took to social media to celebrate the milestone, encouraging everyone who has overcome alcohol addiction problems to “give back” and toss anyone who is still suffering “a life jacket.”

Last August, the self-proclaimed “most underrated bassist ever” teamed up with Slash and Corey Taylor (under the moniker Artists For Recovery) to release a charity single titled “Maybe It’s Time,” with the goal of raising money for The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI).
