Sixx told Fox News about his turbulent childhood, drinking, and why he left California.

Lindsey Vonn opens about her fight for depression: “I realized something was really wrong.”

Fox News: What was it like to revisit your childhood for this book?
Nikki Sixx: It was surreal. I was born in 1958. Named after my father. He is a proud Sicilian of immigrant families from Sicily to New York and throughout the United States. My father was the first person in his family to be born in the United States and graduated from high school. My mom was wild and he was so handsome that probably everything was great.

And it turned out that my mother didn’t actually have her mother’s genes. She didn’t hug me, she took care of me during the beginning of my life. And my aunt, her sister, came down and helped. She loved babies. I really couldn’t connect with my mother. But I did it with my aunt and grandparents. And my sister Lisa was born with Down Syndrome. I had a bloody sister. She was sent to the facility against my father’s wishes. And at that time he left. No one really said the reason. My uncle said something must have made him “really angry”, but he left me behind. I think I was too young to understand the impact it had on me.

And I didn’t want to write a book, kill my parents, and bring out the guillotine. But I wanted to see the situation from a helicopter perspective. And I learned a lot. I wanted to sympathize. My mother greeted me at the age of 17, and she was pretty wild. However, I was also raised by my grandparents. It was lucky. They were blue-collar and hard-working people. And it had a big impact on me. I learned that you are working hard, and you won’t complain. So I worked hard. From time to time in our lives we face catastrophic situations. It will be a struggle. But it can also lead to better opportunities.

Fox News: You were introduced to marijuana at the age of seven long before you became a rock star or hard drug.
Sixx: The 1960s were a big change compared to the 1950s. My mom was very beautiful, charismatic, wild kid and hippie. Men in and out of our lives … there were a lot of people smoking cannabis, cranking music, and having parties. I’m absorbing it all. She had met a man named Bernie and for some reason we moved to Mexico for some unknown reason.

So we are in Mexico, and it was in the 1960s. It didn’t look like everyone was dressed or plain. I’m a small kid and the authorities are telling me to try something. I didn’t know what I was doing, but I hit the joint. From what I remember, I was just away and amazed. It wasn’t registered with me until I started digging deeper into my life.

I don’t think it led to heroin addiction. I think it’s due to a series of events in my life and what happened on Earth in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. I was caught in the jet stream because of the choices I made and what I wanted to do for my life.

I lived alone in Hollywood and was trying to make my own name. I was putting together a band. Cocaine was on the market and alcohol was on the market. I didn’t know anything about pills, and in the end you are discovering heroin that has been somehow long fascinating. I didn’t know what I was doing. It was like signing a deal with the devil. So I will talk about it. I tried to share my experience in the hope that it would be useful to others … To be honest, I have everything I get.

Fox News: Have you ever been afraid to become a parent when you were a kid?
Sixx: No, that’s what I wanted to be above all else. I wanted to be a parent. I wanted the kids to know that no matter what, their dad was here and always. I didn’t know that. Fatherhood is great. I love to be a dad. And I like to get rid of things. Many say, “You’re a dad, so you have to drive a minivan and listen to the music in the elevator right now.” *Lol*.

I do not think so. You are intelligent, a good parent, and you can still be in the band. You can also become an author and share some of yourself. This can lead someone to see things differently. Drinking gave me all of them and more. Drinking looks at life and says, “I want to be a good man. I want to be a good friend. I want to be a good husband. I want to be a good father. I want to be a good musician.”

I love it. Looking back, I can’t imagine doing just an album and a tour. There seems to be a lot more to talk about. There is much more I can do. And one of the things I learned in the process is that you don’t have to be the only one. You can reinvent yourself.

Fox News: You have been calm for 20 years. How was it?
Sixx: I love being calm for many reasons. Someone recently told me, “Man, you look pretty good at everything you have experienced.” *Lol*. It was a journey. I have been calm for 6 years. I didn’t understand. I mean, I got it, but one day I slipped out, and then I was calm for four years. And I slipped. I didn’t want to come and go. I checked in because I wanted to rehabilitate 20 years ago. And I wanted to convey that message. I want them to see what the recovery looks like.

Fox News: You live in Wyoming. When did you first realize you wanted to leave California?
Sixx: We are looking for about 5 years. Originally, I started a conversation saying, “I wish there was a small place to go fishing in the summer and take my children to fishing.” Or, “Why don’t you think it’s cool to go skiing together in the winter?” We kept talking about it, but it never happened. Then a pandemic occurred. Like many, we were looking around the country. Everyone seemed to be running towards these countryside, which was in our heads for a long time.

I saw Aidaho because it has a lot of beauty and I have roots in it. A friend told me about Nashville, but it’s too far away. I didn’t want to travel that far from LA. And my wife raised Wyoming. We looked around Cody, Cheyenne and finally focused on Jackson Hole. Immediately I felt like a house. The community is perfect.

We knew this was the right choice for us as a family. I felt like going on a trip and returning to a place where I could go fishing and look at the mountains. And one day my wife said, “Why are we still in California? This is a good place to raise our daughter.” Come to Los Angeles to meet a friend. But then we are happy to be able to go home. And we spend 95% of our time in Wyoming. It’s home.

Fox News: What do you want your audience to get from your book?
Sixx: As you know, I spent a lot of time digging into my life after being cleaned many years ago. And my family therapist taught me something cool. I was telling him how important it is to be a great parent and to be calm. I tell him, “I understood it correctly.” And he says, “You will ruin your child.” I said, “But what do you mean?” And he says, “We all ruin our children.”

I looked at my family and said, “Dad dreamed of being a kid. It came true. It was to join a rock and roll band. And it was part of joining a rock and roll band. Is on tour. So my kids grew up with their father on tour. It must have caused some damage. So we talked about it. And they said, “Dad, you I understand that I will always come back. “There is something there. We all make our children fail. We all fail in life in some way. So how do you make up for it? And that’s what I’m thinking about family units. Stick out, man. You have to stick it out, understand it, and keep it moving.
