The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx By Nikki Sixx Book Review

I’m a huge Motley Crue fan, but I was late reading Motley bassist/songwriter/founder Nikki Sixx’s most recent book.

The First 21:  How I Became Nikki Sixx, was released in 2021, and as the title suggests, covers Nikki’s first 21 years of life leading up to the formation of Motley Crue.

The book actually starts more in the present about Motley getting back together (a few years after their “Final Tour”) to do a stadium tour.

Once Nikki talks about that, he goes back in time to the early years of his family, him being born, and a lot of things that happened in his first 21 years of life.

This is not a long read, but it is a fantastic read.

I highly enjoyed this book.

Yes I’m a fan, but I would have loved it anyways because I am such a music fan and a fan of autobiographies. 

Autobiographies are my favorite type of book and even though Nikki has put out other books (The Dirt, The Heroin Diaries, This Is Gonna Hurt) he still has a lot to say, and he went into much more detail about his early years in this book.

Again, not a long read, but such a great book, though.

Check it out.
