It has been rumored that at one point during his career, bassist and co-founder of the band Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx, had been pronounced dead. As it turns out, this was a true story and the result of a drug-fueled night in 1987 in which Sixx overdosed on heroin and passed out cold.

Although he was no stranger to heroin overdoses, this was was unlike the others and caused him to turn blue and was eventually declared dead inside of an ambulance. By some miracle, he woke up in the hospital where he promptly escaped and hitched a ride home to do more heroin. Rock and roll.
