About The First 21:
Nikki Sixx is one of the most respected, recognizable and entrepreneurial icons in the music industry. As the founder of Mötley Crüe, which is now in its twenty-first year of sobriety, Sixx is incredibly passionate about his craft and wonderfully open to his life in rock and roll and as a person of the world. Born Franklin Carlton Feranna on December 11, 1958, young Frankie was abandoned by his father and raised in part by his mother, a woman ahead of her time but deeply troubled. Frankie ended up living with his grandparents, bouncing from farm to farm and from state to state. He was an all-American kid – hunting, fishing, chasing girls and playing soccer – but underneath it all was a burning desire to do more, and that more was music. He finally took a Greyhound to Hollywood.
In Los Angeles, Frank lived with his aunt and uncle, the president of Capitol Records, for a short time. But there was no easy way to the top. He was soon all alone. There were dead-end jobs: soaking circuit boards, working in liquor and record stores, selling used light bulbs, and scrambling for survival. But at night, Frank perfected his craft by joining Sister, a band formed by fellow hard rock veteran Blackie Lawless, and formed his own band: London, the precursor of Mötley Crüe. Turning down an offer to join Randy Rhoads’ group, Frank changed his name to Nikki London, Nikki Nine and, finally, Nikki Sixx. Like Huck Finn with a stolen guitar, he had a vision: a band that combined punk, glam and hard rock into the biggest, most theatrical, and compelling package the world has ever seen. With hard work, passion, and a little luck the vision manifested into reality – and it’s a true, deep story in search of an identity, of how Frank Feranna came to be Nikki. Sixx. It’s also a roadmap on how you can overcome it all and achieve all of your goals, if only you think about it.
