(Born December 11, 1958) is an American bassist, author, photographer, and the main songwriter for the heavy metal band Motley Crue. He has also played bass for glam metal band London, the experimental band 58, the hard rock band Brides of Destruction and more recently, Sixx:A.M.
In 1981, Sixx founded Motley Crue with drummer Tommy Lee, later being joined by guitarist Mick Mars through an ad in the local newspaper he was reading, then by singer Vince Neil with whom Tommy had attended high school. The band decided to self-record their debut album, Too Fast for Love, which was subsequently released in November 1981 on the band's own Leathur Records label. After signing with Elektra Records they re-released the album. The band then went on to record and release Shout at the Devil, raising the band to national fame.
Sixx has been dating tattoo artist Kat Von D, of Miami Ink and LA Ink fame since 2008. Kat Von D and her man, Motley Crue member Nikki Six were so cute on the red carpet of the American Music Awards. She gave Nikki a star tat on his face like hers. How cute!
