Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx spent a year tirelessly logging the highs and lows of life as a drug-addled rockstar in his 2007 biography "The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star". Now the bassist says that year it will be recreated on Broadway.

Without providing much detail, Sixx said the book is being reinvented for theater:

"I've been getting asked this a lot lately... The answer is: Yes, 'The Heroin Diaries' book is being turned into a Broadway play."

On Facebook Sixx adds, "More news to follow in the next few months... Were getting pretty far down the road... We hope for a late 2013 or early 2014 for it to open..."

"The Heroin Diaries" was written in 1987, a time when Sixx's addictions were at their worst. Heroin and cocaine were two of his many vices, and he spent time writing in a diary during moments of confusion, paranoia, sadness and eventually sobriety. The book is described as difficult to read due to the honesty, but absolutely compelling.

Thanks for the report to

    Have you guys read the book? Even if you're not a fan, its a crazy look into the mind of someone whos royally **** up.
    I'd call this selling out, but no one in Motley Crue has been one for artistic integrity, have they?
