Frank Carlton Serafino Feranna, Jr., that is really and truly Motley Crew bassist Nikki Sixx’s real name. Nikki Sixx is insane alright. He was insane long before he was Nikki Sixx, shoplifting, breaking into neighbors’ houses, and selling drugs in school. Nikki Sixx learned to play the bass guitar on a guitar he bought with the money he got from selling a guitar he stole.
The Legends; And The Are All True
Setting yourself on fire in a who-can-be-the-most-extreme contest with Ozzy Osbourne kind on gives people that opinion. It took a lot to out-crazy Nikki Sixx, although Ozzy did rise to the occasion and snorted a line of ants. But the Motley Crue bassist has done so much heroin in his life that when death came, he flipped his finger and pulled a Jesus Christ, only to come back and do more heroin.
The legend goes that after taking way too much heroin, Sixx keeled over and died, for a few minutes at least. A paramedic on the scene, who is said to have also been a Motley Crue fan, revived Sixx by giving him two adrenalin shots to the heart. Sixx considered it a second chance. A second chance to do more heroin that is, and like, only a few minutes after being resurrected.
