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.
