團員一樣是James Michael和DJ Ashba。
I've got to keep breathing.
Because tomorrow, the sun will rise.
Who knows what the tide could bring?

Nikki Sixx working on concept album

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Fans may prefer that Nikki Sixx work with Motley Crue
rather than any other musical outfit, but they certainly took a shine to
Sixx:A.M., his band with James Michael and DJ Ashba.
The trio's companion album to Sixx's 2007 memoir, "The Heroin Diaries," sold
more than 300,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and the song "Life
Is Beautiful" was a rock radio hit.
And Sixx promises there's more where that came from.
"We've got a lot of songs," the bassist says, "and we're in the final home
stretch of buttoning all those songs up. It's definitely going to be this
year -- or in a perfect world, it will be this year. I don't want to jinx it."
The new album will be another concept piece, but Sixx isn't revealing the
storyline yet. "As a lyricist, I'm really trying to raise my level of
quality," Sixx says. "Being able to say something lyrically, to say something
that will do more than just be words, is really hard. It's easy to do when
you're writing a chapter of a book or writing poetry, but it's really hard to
do when you're confined to a melody line."
Sixx -- who's also working on another book and just started a syndicated
radio show called "Sixx Sense" -- knows that "The Heroin Diaries" puts a bit
of pressure on Sixx:A.M., but he's doing his best to put it aside.
"There are expectations, but you have to ignore them," he says. "Sixx:A.M. is
a passion project. I think when you do things like that and put your heart
into them and do your best and don't necessarily put them on a marketing
grid, that's when things turn out the best."
