Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx Mourning The Death of His Mother

(hennemusic) Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is mourning the death of his mother, Deana Richards, who passed away on Saturday, June 8th at the age of 74 according to his online postings.

Sixx revealed the news in a tweet that read, "RIP Mom 5-5 1939 to 6-8 2013." The tweet followed a note Sixx had posted on his Facebook page. "Writing a beautiful song about regret.....Pain always serves up the most brutal truth," wrote the bassist.

"I cannot see a ray of sunshine and not find the beauty in the inevitable rain cloud coming in behind it...I have made mistakes....Do lyrics and melody really make up for lost time? THE SAYING "THIS TOO SHALL PASS" WORKS BOTH WAYS..."

Sixx was born Frank Carlton Serafino Feranna, Jr. in 1958 in San Jose, California. He was partially raised by his single mother and by his grandparents after his father left the family. Nikki later moved in with his grandparents after his mother abandoned him; he would later reconnect with her in Seattle, where he first learned to play bass. more on this story
