Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx's memoir is set to get the Broadway treatment.

The rocker's tome, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, was created from a collection of Sixx's journals during the 1980s, when he was struggling with a severe drug addiction.

And now the book, which was released in 2007, is to be converted into a New York City stage show.

Revealing the news in a post on, he writes, "Ive (sic) been getting asked this a lot lately…The answer is: Yes, 'The Heroin Diaries' book is being turned into a broadway play. More news to follow in the next few months....Were getting pretty far down the road...We hope for a late 2013 or early 2014 (date) for it to open."
