Nikki Sixx = Legend. Funny thing about him, he's actually ridiculously intelligent. He's one of those guys that could have been anything, but went his own road, probably out of boredom and spite. That he's alive is amazing.

I've heard him talk a # of times and always thought he was remarkably eloquent. He's lucky to be alive.

Isn't that sort of like John Frusciante in the mid-90s?

Another great quote from the Crue Behind the Music:

"It got so bad that we were mainlining Jack Daniels right into our veins, and I was like 'why don't we just drink it"?

Frusciante, wow. His story is remarkable...that Swedish or whatever it is documentary that he pops up in shows a man on the brink of death.....then, wow, the guy cleans up and just lives this amazing life now. I like stories like that.

Yeah.

They have video on YouTube of him during his heroin stage playing. It's fuckin' scary.

Frisciante is a once in a generation type of guy, which is ironic cause he's in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who, while good, kinda suck. He's the closest thing to Hendrix that rock has ever seen, and I think, maybe, better. He's an artist in every sense. But he also just likes to lay back and gi wth it. he's the kind of guy I just want to hang out with on a Wednesday night. He seems like a nice guy too. Totally unimpressed with himself. If I could play guitar like that, I'd be the biggest fuckgin egomaniac in the world. You'd see me on C-Span trying to ban the sale of guitars to people that sucked - ie, everyone that is NOT me.

Find him playing Maybe by the Chantels. The first time I saw it I thought it was awful, but after a few times watching it (it's like 1:30 long) I damn near wan to cry.

Yeah, he goes really underappreciated because of those two things: his band and his lack of ego.

I agree....he seems really down to earth, and still happy to have come out of the other end of what he was going through.

Yeah, Frusciante could explain why life needs to travel off earth in order to find a hospitable region in which to flourish, albeit human or otherwise. Perhaps we can load organic materials onto robotic ships and send them looking for such places within the universe. Nikki Sixx would show up with a flux capacitor and say, "I made this. It goes fast." That's how life will continue. I will watch.

I just listened to his cover of "How Deep is Your Love", which I never am afraid to admit is a song that I love.....very nice rendition.
