Nikki SixxMötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has aimed his axe at a surprising new target: Facebook. More specifically, what he views as the site's arcane community standards.

Sixx's fracas with the social networking behemoth began when the bassist turned author and photographer posted an outtake from his upcoming photography book/memoir 'This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx,' which features many of Sixx's Joel-Peter Witkin-influenced portraits of cultural outcasts.

"I started by posting one of the photos from my book, it was actually an outtake -- a way to give fans something that won't be in the book." Sixx tells Spinner.
