Franklin Feranna is Nikki Sixx, the story is coming out soon

We've always know him as Nikki Sixx, he's really Franklin Carlton Feranna and what a life he's led. Nikki's new memoir "The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx" will be out Oct. 19th. The driving force behind Motley Crue, Nikki took a very interesting road early in life. A lot of dead end jobs but a vision that eventually turned into reality. I'm always fascinated with how people wind up with the lives they have. I've never been that interested in Motley Crue but the journey of the man who created it? That's another story.
