MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx was interviewed on tonight’s (Wednesday, February 15) edition of “Piers Morgan Tonight”, the nightly hour-long show that replaced “Larry King Live” on CNN in January 2011.
A clip from the program, in which Sixx talks with Piers about the “rock docs” and how they enable the addict, can be seen below.
While having all the rock star riches and luxuries, Sixx told Sun Media that he once had a $5,000-a-day drug habit, one that is vividly chronicled in his 2007 memoir, “The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star”.
“That’s how I communicated,” Sixx said. “I had to or I would go crazy and even as I was going crazy I had to write it down to see if what I was seeing and hearing and feeling was real.
“Cocaine was really the biggest downfall. Heroin you can maintain, sadly, but cocaine you start getting into the amounts of freebasing and mainlining you go into a whole other world of insanity.”
