According to TMZ, DJ Ashba (Sixx:A.M., ex-Guns N’ Roses) was arrested on suspicion for DUI in Fairbury, Illinois. The guitarist was in town to perform the national anthem at the 29th running of the Prairie Dirt Classic, and he was pulled over after failing to stop at a stop sign. Police gave Ashba field sobriety tests and he was arrested after showing signs of impairment. Despite this, he did take to Facebook on July 29 to say the following: “It was so nice to chill back home for a few and reset. Thank you to everyone in my hometown of Fairbury for having me out to perform the National Anthem for ya’ll. It was an honor! Till next time….”
It looks like Sixx:A.M. will be releasing a greatest album later this year. Nikki Sixx revealed the news in the below tweet, and also confirmed the effort will have some new music included with it.
Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M.) appeared on today’s (November 14) episode of “The Doctors” to discuss heroin addiction, recovery, and the opioid epidemic. You can see footage from the show below:
Sixx:A.M. have premiered a lyric video for “Accidents Can Happen 2017.” This reimagined version of the track appears on the 10th anniversary edition of “The Heroin Diaries” soundtrack.
Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M.) has announced the end of his Sixx Sense radio show and spinoffs. Sixx decided to end the program so he can focus on other projects such as his photography, his TV endeavors, and the Broadway adaptation of “The Heroin Diaries”. His final show will be broadcasted on December 31.
Julie Talbott, president of Premiere Networks, commented:
“When we first partnered with Nikki in 2010, we set out to create a unique program from the perspective of true rock star, and that’s exactly what we did. We’re proud of the work we did together to make ‘Sixx Sense’ one of the most widely syndicated rock radio programs in the country while establishing the ultimate platforms for rock music fans, as well as new and established artists. It’s been a pleasure working with Nikki, and we wish him all the best.”
“I grew up discovering music on the radio. So to host my own show over the nearly eight years of ‘Sixx Sense’ was beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have done it without my amazing team in the studio, or the guests, musicians, and listeners that brought the show to life. It’s been an inspirational journey and I’ll always be a fan of the medium, but it’s time to shift gears outside the realm of solely radio. I’m in the process of developing new and unique programming and ventures across multiple platforms. But I’m really gonna miss ‘Sixx Sense’.”
If your curious about his other projects it is worth noting that he is working on the Broadway adaptation of “The Heroin Diaries” with former Live Nation Chairman and “Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark Broadway” producer Michael Cohl, and that it will feature music from the Sixx:A.M. album of the same name.
Sixx will also be taking his “Conversations with Angels” photo exhibit around the world in partnership with Leica Camera. That will be on display at the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles, through November 5. Leica also plan to release a limited edition Nikki Sixx Leica Q camera as well.
Furthermore, Sixx will also serve as a mentor on the Canadian talent show “The Launch.”
The 10th anniversary editions of “The Heroin Diaries” book and album will be available on October 27.
Today (August 21) is the 10th anniversary of Nikki Sixx’s “The Heroin Diaries” and the Mötley Crüe legend has revealed details for the 10th anniversary edition of the book, as well as the Sixx:A.M. companion album of the same name.

You can find various preorder options at PledgeMusic. This news comes after the previous announcement of “The Heroin Diaries” graphic novel.
Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M.) has revealed that he is joining forces with Heavy Metal to create a graphic novel adaptation of his autobiography “The Heroin Diaries.” The book will be a part of Heavy Metal’s new 12 x 12 imprint, which features music-themed art books/graphic novels that focus on songs and musicians. Fans can preview “The Heroin Diaries” graphic novel at Heavy Metal’s San Diego Comic Con booth (booth #1529).
“The Heroin Diaries has always been deeply personal to me. So when the idea came up for a graphic novel based on the story, who better to partner with than the iconic HEAVY METAL brand? I grew up reading their magazine as a kid. This is really a passion project and I’ve been intimately involved in every step along the way, from the storyline to the look and feel of the art. Working with Jeff, Rantz and their team has been an inspiring experience and I think we came up with a really unique spin on The Heroin Diaries that tells the story from a different angle. It is meant to be a treat for fans of The Heroin Diaries, old and new, and I hope everyone will enjoy the graphic novel as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.”
Heavy Metal CEO, Jeff Krelitzsays added:
“I’ve been the biggest fan of Mötley Crüe since the release of Too Fast for Love, and have nothing but the greatest respect for Nikki and his songwriting, so for us to be able to collaborate with him on bringing this tragedy-to-triumph to a new audience in a powerful way is a dream come true.”
If that’s not enough for you, keep an eye out for the 10th anniversary editions of “The Heroin Diaries” book and the SIXX:A.M. album of the same name, as well as the upcoming “The Heroin Diaries” play.
