Today my good friend Nikki Sixx stops by to talk about his brand new book "The First 21" which comes out Oct 19th 2021.
Nikki has been rocking with Mötley for 40 years and now you can hear about what he did before Mötley.
For the first 21 years of Nikki's life he was grinding it out on the streets as Frank Feranna. Broken family life, Bouncing from town to town couch to couch chasing a dream that only a handful of people ever achieve.
When you read these stories in his new book you realize you are reading the recipe on how to write a classic like Too Fast For Love and Shout At the Devil.
These stories are raw just like the music.
Riding a Greyhound to LA with no money and no place to live hoping to start a Band that will change the world is not for the weak.
Dig in and enjoy this episode of Let There Be Talk.
