Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx has stepped behind the camera to shoot a fashion spread for a New York City publication.
The rocker completed the sexy, rock-inspired feature for the New York Post's Alexa magazine and Sixx hopes his latest project will show fans he's more than just a musician.
He says, "People are realising that I'm not really a one-trick pony. I don't just make music. I'm an author, I do philosophy, part of a clothing line, I have a radio show. I'm in two different bands with very different music. I'm a father, I'm a recovering drug addict, so all these things I like to expose...
"It's really awesome for the audience to go, 'Wow, I didn't know he was a photographer,' and then they start looking into photography and the messages and they go, 'It actually makes sense with what he was saying on his earlier albums... It's a theme of recovery."
