For most of his young career, Sixx embodied the rockstar lifestyle. Money, sex, drugs — you name it. He and Motley Crue were the hard rock kings of the Sunset Strip — the big dogs. Both the book and movie reveal that through all the insane antics, he was obviously hurting. Sixx battled addiction for most of his time with Motley Crue.
During one scary brush with a heroin overdose, he was reportedly dead for over a minute, according to Newsweek. He clearly felt he had nowhere to turn. Sixx would ultimately hit rock bottom , but has since been sober and enjoys a reasonably stable family life. Armed with all that tortured experience, he unsurprisingly has quite a bit to say about the nature of living. But even when his wisdom seems tinged with a sense of negativity or regret, he never descends into outright nihilism.
This is not a man who ever gave up on life or living. So I threw myself headlong into music and that lifestyle. A few years later, when I got sober and was able to become a father and have a family, that was when some of the greatest lessons came. The big difference is that I have faced the challenges sober, with my sights set on staying in the moment and being honest. It works. In my own broken philosophy, if you live your life right, death is something to look forward to.
It gives you a reason to be alive.. I also say you see what you want to see, so I keep my eyes wide open at all times. I believe you need to feed your obsession Mine is creativity. Have you found yours yet? We have a great life and so much fun together. I would never be single and not be a father.
I had a time, and what a time it was, but this surpasses it a thousand fold. I love stability, because what swirls around me is insanity. After all, if they can make you feel, they must be special.
