MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has issued the following update:"SIXX: A.M. [featuring Sixx, James Michael and DJ Ashba] band rehearsals are sounding great. It's our first concert [94.9 The Blaze's Halloween Havoc 2007 on Thursday, October 25 at The E-Center in West Valley City, Utah] and we don't have too long to play (I think 40 minutes) and had to break in a new drummer. "As you all know, we don't have a drummer, it's just me, James and DJ, so we use whoever is available for live or videos. We do it all ourselves when recording. "I've been asked a lot if we do any CRÜE live and at this time I feel we should stand on our own and not rely on anybody's music but our own. "We don't have any plans to tour, so this is exciting for us to do this one show. "I know KORN is headlining and it will be nice to hang with them…they're good guys. "After the show I have book signings in Vancouver, Seattle and San Francisco and then back home. "The book ['The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star'] is still on the New York Times best-seller list and our single is Top Five now. "Feels so nice to step away from my past and focus on the future with my best friends… what a gift." "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star" (released September 18 via MTV Pocketbooks/Simon & Schuster) debuted at #7 on The New York Times Book Review non-fiction best-seller list. Twenty-five percent of the book's profits will be donated to Running Wild In The Night — Sixx's fundraising initiative for Covenant House California, which helps keep runaway, abused and abandoned youth off the streets.
