This is Gonna Hurt explores beauty, its perception, how we view ourselves based upon Sixx’s journals and, for the first time in print, his photographs. It is these observations and accompanying photographs that will be the focus of his lecture. This is Gonna Hurt (Eleven Seven Music) is the accompanying soundtrack CD to Sixx's book, and a top rock album release from his band, Sixx:A.M.

In addition to being an accomplished Grammy nominee, radio host, New York Times bestselling author, clothing designer, photographer, philanthropist, syndicated radio show host and recording artist in two genre-defining bands, Sixx is also the proud father of four.

Kristine McKenna is a widely published critic and journalist who wrote for the Los Angeles Times from 1977 through 1998. Her profiles and criticism have appeared in Artforum, The New York Times, Artnews, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone magazine. A collection of her interviews, Book of Changes, was published in 2001 followed by a second volume, Talk To Her, in 2004. In 2009, she organized She: Work by Wallace Berman & Richard Prince, which was presented at the Michael Kohn Gallery.

Her 2011 survey exhibition of photographer Charles Brittin was accompanied by the artist's monograph, Charles Brittin: West & South. She is presently working on Feelin' Groovy: Clothing & Costume in the American '60s and Panic in Detroit: Leni Sinclair's Photographs of the Michigan Underground, 1963-1973, which are both slated for publication in 2012. She recently edited The Collected Writing of Richard Prince, which will be published this fall.
