Nikki Sixx is talking about life on the road as he drives through the canyons just outside of Los Angeles toward wherever rock stars go at 9:30 in the morning on a Thursday. Before the cell signal cuts out, the Motley Crue bassist, who now sounds more like a Mr. Sixx than a Nikki, is trying to sound enthusiastic about his band's residency at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas.
He's not succeeding.
The thing is that Sixx isn't the same guy who overdosed on heroin on Valentines Day back in the '86. He's sober and he's a dad. He takes it seriously and, though he admits his publicist might not like him saying it, he's outgrown Sin City.
