Motley Crue Star's Drug Tales Branded A Fraud By Rival

(Classic Rock) LA Guns frontman Phil Lewis has blasted Nikki Sixx's bestseller The Heroin Diaries as a "fraud," two years after former Motley Crue singer John Corabi made a similar suggestion about his ex-bandmate's book.

Lewis' outburst came in a forum tirade in which he slammed Crue's touring partners Def Leppard, accusing them of not working hard enough on stage. On the MetalSludge.tv boards the singer said: "I don't like arena rock. Motley Crue, with exploding drum kits and midgets, bore me to death. Poison is an embarrassment. Def Leppard going through the motions and mailing it in every night is pathetic."

After Sixx responded by calling Lewis a "sad li'l pumpkin" on Twitter, the Gunsman turned his anger on the bassist's 2007 book. Subtitled A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, it documents the bassist's experiences in the band, in his love life and with his drug issues, leading up to his heroin overdose in 1987.
