In December 23rd 1987, Nikki Sixx is declared clinically dead for two minutes, after a heroin overdose.
Slash's girlfriend tried keeping him alive with chest compressions, but he was declared dead by the paramedics.
One of the paramedics, in the top of desperation, inject 2 shots of adrenaline satraight to Sixx's heart.
Well, he came back.
That was the first time he “died”.
He checked out the hospital and, at the same day, he went back home and had another heroin overdose. Almost died again.
Then he checked into rehab and that was it.
