Nikki Sixx recovering from shoulder surgery

Sixx:AM and former Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is recovering from shoulder surgery on July 25.

The rocker previewed the event with a social media post, writing, “Last hour of playing guitar before going into surgery tomorrow to repair my rotator cuff from breaking guitars. IRONIC?”

Sixx updated fans late Tuesday evening with a pair of post-op photos, adding, “Rotator and torn bicep fixed. Doctor did a great job.”

The shoulder repair comes just three months after the bassist underwent successful hip placement surgery.

Following news last month that he has unofficially retired from touring, Sixx recently announced plans to team up with Heavy Metal magazine to publish a graphic novel of his 2007 memoir, “The Heroin Diaries”, this fall in sync with its tenth anniversary this year.

The project will mark the first release under the media brand’s new 12 X 12 imprint that will deliver a line of music-themed art books and graphic novels exploring the songs and experiences of musical artists.

Chronicling a year of decadence and depravity that almost cost Sixx his life during the recording and tour for Motley Crue’s 1987 album, “Girls, Girls, Girls”, the memoir became a worldwide bestseller.

The rocker will soon announce details regarding 10th anniversary editions of “The Heroin Diaries” book, Sixx:A.M.’s soundtrack by the same name, and a companion play version of the project.
