In 1987, the same year the band released their hair-metal hit Girls, Girls Girls, Sixx shot up so much heroin that he was actually declared dead. He was loaded into an ambulance and then pumped with two adrenaline shots by paramedics (one of whom, Sixx recalled later, was a Crüe fan). The rocker came to instantly . . . upon which he immediately escaped from the ambulance, coerced a ride back to his home, promptly took more heroin, and passed out.
