Nikki Sixx: Self-Portrait

Photography is Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx's secret obsession. He's been at it for a couple of decades, but only now is beginning to share his pictures – first with a book, This is Gonna Hurt: Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx (William Morrow), that came out in April. Along the way, he's done a lot of self-portraits. "That's because there's no one around," Sixx said during a talk at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles on August 25th. Of the photo here, he added, "That's like every girl on MySpace."

Here are selections from This is Gonna Hurt, plus several additional photos that Sixx shared with Rolling Stone.
