From my recollections, that was not the whole story ... I think that started out of the one guy telling everyone he was the real Nikki Sixx and that the band did substitute a fake Nikki to get rid of him ... the real Sixx sued him and had restraining orders and medical attention brought down on the guy!
Does anyone have that story down right?
