Nikki Sixx's 'Heroin Diaries' set to become a Broadway play
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx has said that his 2007 memoir The Heroin Diaries is set to become a Broadway play.

The hair metal bassist took to his personal Twitter and Facebook pages to break the news to fans, writing:

Ive been getting asked this a lot lately… The answer is: Yes, The Heroin Diaries book is being turned into a Broadway play.


He added: "More news to follow in the next few months… Were getting pretty far down the road... We hope for a late 2013 or early 2014 for it to open...".

The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, comprises diary entries written by Sixx from 1986-1987, covering Motley Crue's 'Girls, Girls, Girls' recording sessions, the album release and also Sixx's own near death experience following a heroin overdose.

Earlier this year it was reported that Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil was opening his own strip club, named after 'Girls, Girls, Girls'.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Sun about the venture, Neil said 'Girls, Girls, Girls' was a "rock'n'roll strip club'' and said all his strippers will look like they've "stepped out of a music video".

Asked what people could expect from the club, Neil boasted: "First, the girls will be edgier. Tattoos won't be banned."

He added: "Second, the music isn't going to be boring. None of that house, generic strip club music. This will be full on rock'n'roll. It will be a blast from start to finish. Yeah, we'll even play a little Motley."
