10 things Ray Bradbury and musician Nikki Sixx have in common: #9 - Didn't attend college

#9. Neither SF&F author Ray Bradbury nor Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx attended college.

Ray Bradbury graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1938 but didn’t attend college because he couldn’t afford it. However, he has received honorary degrees from several schools, including Columbia College Chicago, Woodbury University in Burbank, CA, and National University of Ireland, Galway at Los Angeles.

Nikki Sixx was expelled from Roosevelt High School in Seattle in the mid-1970s and did not attend college.
