What are John Cooper's fave and current reads?

I asked John just that on Twitter.

 His response, " no. 1 favorite book is "Frankenstein" by Mary shelley. My current read is "allegiant" from divergent series."

Love those diverse picks! Thanks so much, John!

Nikki Sixx

(photo by me)

Nikki Sixx is a musician, photographer, author, and radio show host. He's the bassist and songwriter of two successful bands that I love - Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M.  Motley Crue toured the US for the final time in 2014 and will tour Europe this year. I was able to see them two nights in a row in November. I can't believe I will never see them live again!! Nikki's radio show Sixx Sense can be heard nationwide.  He's also authored three books - The Dirt, The Heroin Diaries, and This Is Gonna Hurt.  He's even been featured here  before (and will be again!).

What is Nikki Sixx reading?

He recently posted on Instagram, "A new year, a new book" with a photo of the cover of An Invisible Thread: The true story of an 11-year-old panhandler, a busy sales executive, and an unlikely meeting with destiny.

This uplifting book is a best seller by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski.

Here's the Sixx: A.M. video for "Stars!"
