Nikki Sixx, bassist for the rock bands Mötley Crüe and Sixx: A.M. as well as the host of radio show Sixx Sense has been working on a project including a book “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx” (pre-order on Amazon), documentary series on Hulu entitled “This is Gonna Hurt: The Documentaries,” and album with his Sixx:A.M. band-mates lead singer James Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba (also guitarist for Guns N’ Roses) entitled “This is Gonna Hurt” (pre-order on Amazon). The documentary series launched yesterday (March 29, 2011) on Hulu while the book will be released on April 12, 2011 and the Sixx:A.M. album will be released on May 3, 2011 via Eleven Seven Music.
The book, album, and documentary come on the heels of Nikki Sixx’s New York Times best seller “The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star” (available on Amazon) and accompanying Six:A.M. album “Heroin Diaries Soundtrack” (download via Amazon).
Nikki Sixx introduced his documentary series with an exclusive Hulu blog post “Guest Blog: Nikki Sixx’s World of Hurt” and shares his thoughts about the inner workings of the project with Hulu. The first two episodes are now online for Hulu and Hulu Plus subscribers. I’ve also embedded the episodes below. Episode 1 is about 4 minutes and Episode 2 is about 8 minutes in length.

The documentaries premiering spotlight Nikki Sixx’s genesis and inspiration of creating the photos, book and album and how they are all connected. Showcasing Sixx:A.M.’s music and book imagery, Sixx and his Sixx:A.M. bandmates James Michael and Dj Ashba introduce featured subjects from the photographs and inspiration for the project.
Says Nikki Sixx, “Delivering quality content outside of music videos provides a new, dynamic and unique way for me to further connect with my fans as well as other entertainment fans outside of my regular base. In some ways, the music video of the past has been re-imagined as a much more transparent and authentic premium content experience of the future. Platforms like Hulu enable these connections with fans.”
