Book Review: Motley Crue - The Dirt
The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band. Another typical rock n roll tale? Well I suppose it is...if you're living the sex, drugs and rock n roll life.
This story is amazing. This book follows the crazy and reckless lives of Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and Mick Mars. I first started listening to Motley back in grade school. I remember a friend had a copy of Theatre Of Pain... I don't recall falling in love with the album but I did evently get Shout at The Devil, Too Fast For Love as well as almost all of them since.
The book has alot small chapters consisting of various tales of sex, drugs, some more sex and drugs and oh yeah...some rock n roll. Aside from all of name dropping from almost all the members (besides Mick Mars), this was a great read as a fan of the band. It has tales from the various tours they were on, perspectives from tour managers as well as industry reps.
If you're into the Crue, I recommend this book. I can't believe these guys are still alive and rocking these days. The stories these guys have is almost unbelievable.
