For all my adult life I have been a fan of Mötley Crüe. They epitomised the sleazy glam rock genre perfectly and their band members seemed to live their life that way too.
This all changed during 1987 when Sixx (Nikki Sixx is the bassist) almost died from a heroin overdose. He subsequently cleaned up his act and wrote a book based on his journal entries called “The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star”.
This later became an album that was released in 2007 and Sixx A.M. was truly born (they were formed in 2006).
It has not been a truly great year for live music this year. On the comedy front there have been two events that are the highlights so far. With Bill Bailey earlier this year, Jimmy Carr coming to Finland later this month, October was the month of Stephen Merchant.
So after months of anticipation the night finally arrived and Lenny Kravitz flew away from the US to the shores of an autumnal Finland. To be honest I was not a big a fan. I find his musical quite suicide inducing at times.
