Very longtime HardRadio friend NIKKI SIXX (Motley Crue, Sixx:A.M.) has revealed via Instagram that he's almost finished writing his new, as yet untitled book. "350 more pages to go. Book number 3. Chapter 1 'The Benefit Of The Struggle.' Writing books, poetry, short stories and lyrics takes me outta my comfort zone which is exactly what I need in life to progress as an artist... Highly recommend writing a paragraph on exactly what you're feeling daily. It will improve your life. By the way, I was thrown out of school and never graduated (I wish I had). But the truth is, you can educate yourself. Now I sure the hell can't spell great, but that won't and never has held me back from my love of WORDS..." Nikki's first book, The Heroin Diaries, was published in 2007. His second book, This Is Gonna Hurt, was published in 2011.

Billboard is reporting that Motley Crue drummer and very longtime HardRadio friend TOMMY LEE claims he was knocked unconscious in a surprise attack by his 21 year old son Brandon. Tommy posted a selfie of his bloody lip on Instagram, now-deleted, which was captioned, "My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job Brandon. Great son!"

Very longtime HardRadio friends LIZZY BORDEN is without a doubt an important and accompanying band in the history of Metal Blade Records. As we all wait for updates about the new studio album, Metal Blade has decided to re-issue two classic Lizzy Borden records - Love You To Pieces and Menace To Society - on April 13th. Both will be released as Metal Blade Originals, with a vinyl remastering from Patrick W. Engel. Special treatment and 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250g inserts guaranteed.
