Sixx, the band’s primary songwriter and visionary, guided his crew through a decade plus of platinum albums, arena-filling tours, and hit videos. A capable bassist who supported the song foremost, Sixx also distinguished himself with various musical projects outside the band and as an author, producer, radio host, photographer, and entrepreneur.
