A combination of powerful prose and dramatic photographs, This Is Gonna Hurt is an arresting, deeply personal look through the eyes of a real rock star at a stark, post-addiction world.

This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography, and Life through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx is part photo, part journal—but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Combining the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller The Heroin Diaries with a photographic journey, This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx’s experiences—from his early years filled with toxic waste to his success with Mötley Crüe to his death from an OD and his eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.

Love story, bad-ass rock tell-all, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending—a search that fuels Sixx’s being.

    " A little self indulgent but I do find this man's life very interesting. The photography is a little what you might call unusual. But it was very eye catching. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by A.L. Waddington | 2/15/2014

    " A continuing story of a man who is an inspiration to everyone and still showing no signs of slowing down. Nikki Sixx is a true hero, one of a kind with a heart of gold that sees the beauty in everything and everyone!! "

    " This book was ok. I don't have much to say about it that hasn't been said already. One thing that drove me crazy was that the titles of the photos were in teeny tiny print that I could not read with my aging eyes. In addition there was intermittent red printing on a black background that was hard to make out as well. My eyes ached by the end of the book. Nikki sounds almost happy and is definitely in recovery and he will tell anyone who reads this book ALL about it (sometimes ad nauseum). "
