“The Heroin Diaries”

The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star by Nikki Sixx

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow! One of the most phenomenal books I’ve read in a long time! I don’t recommend it for anyone under 21, or anyone “sensitive” to drugs, sex or rock ‘n’ roll. Nikki Sixx has lived fasted, died twice, and then really learned to LIVE. His story is gut-wrenching … I cried for the “lost little boy” many times as I read. The last 28 pp. make the entire book worth reading. If you think a rock star has a “glamours” life, read this and weep. While Sixx brought most of the pain onto himself, his struggle with abandonment, depression, and finding himself is (to delve into the cliche) is life-changing. What does a rock star want at the end of the tour? Exactly what I already have … wild! If you’re a little sick, a touch sadistic, and are a sucker for a “happy” ending, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this book.
