MÖTLEY CRÜE's SIXX: In The Mourning

January 17, 2003

MÖTLEY CRÜE/BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION bassist Nikki Sixx has posted the following message in the "Rock'n'Roll Diary" section of CRÜE's official web site:

"Last Tuesday, [wife] Donna and I received a very sad phone call. Rhyan's (Donna's son) father was found dead from a heart attack. How does one go about telling your child your Dad is dead. I've been raising Rhy as my son (and he is to me) for 7 years, but there is no bond stronger than that of your dad. I always respected that and to see that shattered is heartbreaking for Donna and myself. We just returned from the viewing. To see a 9-year-old boy standing there by the casket in his tennis shoes crying is an image that will be hard to shake. I thought if any of you wanted to post anything nice we would let him read it. He needs to hear nice things right now.

"God bless. And thank you. Nikki and Donna"
