My favorite rock band!

Sixx A.M is a hard rock band from L.A, Cali. formed in 2007 by Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba, and James Michael.  Sixx, also plays bass for Mötley Crüe. The group is best known for their songs "Life Is Beautiful" from The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack in 2007, which is based upon Sixx's autobiography, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.

Originally the group stated they had no intention of touring. After constant support for the band and interest in a tour, they held a nationwide vote for tour dates. The tour was scheduled to start in 2008.
On April 15, 2008, Sixx:A.M. announced they would be touring as part of Mötley Crüe's Crüe Fest, along with BuckcherryPapa Roach and Trapt. The tour began on July 1, 2008, in West Palm Beach, Florida. A deluxe tour edition of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack was released on November 25, 2008.

Did you know?

              Things you might not know about the flute!

When you recieve you play, make sure to have gloves (with he tips cut off). The acid from our fingures will rub against the instrument and will start to cur-road. C:

You should never let your woodwind instrument near water but if necessary you may use a soft damp cloth to wipe away finger prints, just keep away from pads.

If your pads stick, use a dollar bill! Just slide between your keys, press down and gently slide the dollar.

Wooden flutes are harder to play that metal flutes.

Oil rots your flute.

Sudden temperature changes will crack your flute.

I want to see this Opra for myself. Of course the cast is diffrent, but im sure its still fantastic!
It was first seen at the Opéra-Comique of Paris on 3 March 1875. It was almost withdrawn after its fourth or fifth performance, and although this was avoided, ultimately having 48 performances in its first run. Near the end of this run, the theatre was giving tickets away in order to stimulate attendance. Bizet died of a heart attack, aged 36, on 3 June 1875, never knowing how popular Carmen would become. In October 1875 it was produced in Vienna, to critical and popular success, which began its path to worldwide popularity. It was not staged again at the Opéra Comique until 1883.
