MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has posted the following message in his online diary:"The first single [from 'The Heroin Diaries' album; companion to the book drawn from Nikki's 1986 and '87 journals, when he was in the throes of a heroin addiction] which was originally called 'Funeral' has had a title change to 'Life is Beautiful' and the video is now done. As usual Paul Brown was at the helm. The first video as well as the book, audio book and the album will all have a very cohesive look. "I had a wonderful spring break with my kids and now James [Michael, who co-wrote and co-produced the album], DJ [Ashba, ex-BEAUTIFUL CREATURES] and myself are all locked down in the studio finishing the music to 'The Heroin Diaries' soundtrack. Me and DJ also just finished scoring a PSA for Covenant House. It's very magical because the kids directed, produced, wrote and acted in the PSA. It's amazing what kids can do when there given the right tools." Sixx previously said about the "The Heroin Diaries" book, "The more it sells, the more awareness on drug and alcohol addiction and the more money it will raise for Running Wild in the Night [Nikki's fundraising initiative that helps homeless and troubled youth get off the streets] and Covenant House. It's really a great read now that all the pieces of the puzzle are in place. So many people came to the table to tell their side of the story relating to the actual diary entries. "The title of the book is somewhat misleading 'cause it also deals with my family problems as a kid, depression as well as my downward spiral into freebase and pill addiction as well etc. etc. "Lemmy [MOTÖRHEAD] wrote a short medical history for the beginning of the book, very demented — like only Lemmy can be."
