Combining the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller, The Heroin Diaries, with a photographic journey, This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx’s experiences—from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Mötley Crüe, to his overdose and eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.”

    PUFFY: 秘密のギミーキャット ~うふふ 本当よ~ Release Date:  2014 Label:  Sony Music Artist Inc. This song is insane. In many ways. Puffy, known as Puffy Amiyumi here in the States, have always been known for doing zany stuff. You never know what to expect from them. I don't think they've ever done rap, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that's what th
