Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx roamed Denver, Colorado on Tuesday night (26Jul11) to photograph the homeless - and was overwhelmed by the kindness of those living on the streets.
The rocker has become a revered lensman as a sideline, and is even set to deliver a talk, entitled Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx, in California next month (Aug11).
He added to his portfolio on Tuesday evening by taking snaps of locals living on the streets of Denver - and it was a moving experience for the star.
In a post on his Twitter.com blog late on Tuesday, he writes, "Everybody I photographed tonight was homeless. They were all kind and humble.
"I asked them simple questions mostly about how long they had been out here... None asked for anything in return. I did my best to help them through the night, but the problem is bigger than tonight isn't it?"
Sixx uploaded a selection of his pictures to his account on the site - one showed an elderly lady cuddling her dog, while another depicted a man holding a sign declaring 'In Need'.
