Beschreibung

A Netflix original movie starring Machine Gun Kelly, Daniel Webber, Douglas Booth, and Iwan Rheon, directed by Jeff Tremaine.

Celebrate over 30 years of the world's most notorious rock band with the audiobook edition of The Dirt — the outrageous, legendary, no-holds-barred autobiography of Mötley Crüe.

Fans have gotten glimpses into the band's crazy world of backstage scandals, celebrity love affairs, roller-coaster drug addictions, and immortal music in Mötley Crüe books like Tommyland and The Heroin Diaries, but now the full spectrum of sin and success by Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars is an open book in The Dirt.

Joe Levy at Rolling Stone calls The Dirt "without a doubt...the most detailed account of the awesome pleasures and perils of rock & roll stardom I have ever read. It is completely compelling and utterly revolting."

    FUCKING TRAGIC HAPPY SUCCESS STORY EVERYONE SHOULD READ/LISTEN TOO OMFG!
  • (5/5)
    Well written, view points from each band member. Enough difference in view points to show controversy between members. Tells a lot of the early life and day to day of living a larger than life rockstar.

    I LOVED this book!----------------------The Dirt is a semi-autobiography of the 80’s band Motley Crue.-----

    I'm totally traumatized.How do people live like this and continue to actually be alive? The Dirt is an autobiographical memoir of the rise, fall, rise, fall, fall, fall, fall of one of the biggest rock hair bands ever. Fascinating look into the world of entertainment, I was so disgusted and yet, I couldn't keep from reading it. Honest, brutal and downright pornographic, the level of depravity is beyond depravity. Even depravity is mortified! The fact that we get to see how a situation was viewed through different eyes is interesting--it makes one wonder how eyewitness accounts convict anybody when people perceive things so different. Of course, they view these situations through a thick layer of drugs and alcohol, so, their brains might not be functioning at top speed. Just sayin'. The look back at their childhoods was raw, poignant, emotional and again, honest.There was never a shortage of drugs, booze, sex, ass-kissing, yes-men and groupies--I was disappointed in the girls who gave of themselves and their dignity so willingly. How these women allowed these gnarly brats to humiliate them like trash is beyond my comprehension; their reminisces were the most horrifying and gross tales I have ever heard about what females will do to be with a man.If you would like to read an in-your-face account of what it's like to be a spoiled, catered to, rock star with egos beyond huge, this is your book. You might want to wear full body protection--just reading the book could transmit some goopy disease!Good book. Good luck. God speed. Yikes!

    I graduated High School in 1989 as a lover of metal and I grew up on Motley Crue and vaguely remember seeing them in concert at least once for Girls, Girls, Girls. This book was really interesting to find out all that was going on with the band while I was simply listening to the music. I enjoyed the format of the book in which band members each took on a chapter telling stories from their own point of view which was often in direct contradiction with the previous chapter shifting blame to another band member. This was a great way to be a voyeur into the world of Rock n’ Roll and a fun departure from the types of books I normally read. It’s made me enjoy some of the classic Cure songs that I have on my ipod so much more.

    A chronicle of unbelievable decadence, and a rare example of a tell-all that lives up to its hype. Doesn't pull its punches, and is a definite must for any Crüe fan. I would rate it even higher if it wasn't for Tommy Lee's contributions, which are as annoying as you'd expect from such a spaz.

    The Dirt is a semi-autobiography of the 80’s band Motley Crue. It’s a GREAT read that is memorizing. All four band members write about their childhood, the crazy period where they become the most famous band in America and then the post-fame period where they turn to drugs and hot chicks. The middle section of the book is how the Crue got from a great live act to becoming a the biggest band in the world. They were constantly selling out shows on the LA Strip but none of the record labels wanted to sign them to a record deal. This was the early 80’s and the entire industry thought that New Wave was the thing to be and Rock was dead. A 20-year old intern at Electra convinced the head of A&R to let him sign them. They then re-released their first album and it went on to sell 5 million records over the next 12 months. Even with that success, the label wanted to drop them because they didn’t like their image. Only after they became the top selling band in the music industry did Electra decide to stick with them.Throughout the book Nikki Sixx emerges as the only one who understood what the band’s direction was. He wrote most of the songs and consciously decided they should be a crossover from hard rock to mainstream. He also seems to be the glue that held the band together. He also was dating Lita Ford for most of their early days but eventually broke up when they went on tour for 18 months. He eventually married Baywatch star Donna D’Errico (they are still married with a few kids).You also read how much drugs they took in both their early days. They were constantly doing coke, heroin, and anything else they could get their hands on. As a result they destroyed almost everything in the path and they hooked up with anything that moved. Both Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee overdosed and almost died, Vince Neil got into 3 drunk driving accidents, and Mick is a full-blown alcoholic even today.You also read about Tommy Lee’s marriage to Heather Locklear and Pamela Anderson (who he dated for only 4 days before they were married). Also about Vince’s solo band and all the tragedies they’ve encountered along the way.The beginning is pure Rock & Roll and the end is just sad. You would never think that their lives would be so hard but they all really struggle just to make it day to day. I guess a bunch of ego and booze and drugs will do that to you.Anyway, i think you can tell by how much i wrote how much i got into this book. I'd recommend it to anyone - even non-rock fans.Note: i just saw that they’re making a movie from the book with Val Kilmer and Christopher Walker rumored to play Ozzy and David Lee Roth.

    I'm not a Motley Crue Fan, but this book is a lot of fun. (Not to mention eye-opening.)

    Reading this book was like watching a car wreck, you know it's awful to look at, yet you can't look away, somehow you are fascinated by it. Motley Crue is an American hard rock band that formed in 1982. In Motley Crue: The Dirt - Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band, each of the four band members tells his story beginning from thier childhood through thier time with the band. It was about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, but you also get to see another side to these guys. When Nikki Sixx, formerly known as Franklin Feranna, tried to call his father and re-connect, his dad hung up the phone on him, screaming 'I do not have a son. I don't know who you are'. Mick Mars suffers from an illness called ankylosing spondylitis, which is a form of arthritis that had him in intense pain most of his adult life. "I'm a prisoner in my own body." He became addicted to pain killers and alcohol. Vince Neil lost his young daughter to cancer. "I was her father, and I was supposed to protect her. I had done everything in my power for Skylar-everything-and the truth was that I was powerless." Each of the band members talk about thier addiction to drugs and alcohol, thier childhoods and how they found each other and became Motley Crue. They also mention thier wives and girlfriends as they are telling thier crazy, messed up stories. Since they formed in the early eighties, they were wearing spiked heels, tight clothes, makeup and had high, teased hair. It was all about looking punk rock and being bad ass hanging out on Hollywood Boulevard. This was a great memoir, not for the faint of heart, almost like a wild ride. With chapter titles like 'Shout at the Devil', 'Save Our Souls' and 'Some of Our Best Friends are Drug Dealers', how could you not be curious to read it?If you don't mind the vulgar language and crazy stories, you may just enjoy this one.

    Who doesn't enjoy an autobiography ?? To say gritty would be a huge understatement. This book is a look into the life of a rock band that will forever alter my view on rock stars. Believe it or not, there are actually some very touching parts to the story. I felt connected to each of the band members for different reasons. I also enjoyed how they described the music industry based on the success of your most current project - inetersting. One of those books that I will list as a guilty pleasure and would not recommend to my mom !!!

    Just as I had imagined this book is chock full of sex drugs and rock n roll -- and not without its reprocussions. A very entertaining read, even for non fans.

    All the depravity just got too depressing for me. Couldn't finish it.
  • (5/5)
    Unbelievable. This is one of the best autobiographies I have ever read. Motley Crue have done it all, and seen it all, and now they write about it all. Very candid stuff from everyone in the band.
  • (4/5)
    This is one of my guilty pleasure reads. It's not exactly thought provoking, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are definitely some laugh out loud moments. This is a must read for any fan of the Crue.
  • (4/5)
    Awesome book! And I don't even really care for this band. Makes me so mad I never made it as a rock star, although at the same time, the book makes me so glad I never made it as a rock star.

    I guess when you've done it all (and then some), the only thing left to do is to tell the world about it. Much like their albums never winning a Grammy, their book isn't destined for a Pulitzer, but you've got to give the Crue big points for their unabashed candor. Guaranteed to offend just about everyone, but it's an interesting read anyway. If you ever bought your daughter a concert ticket to their show or gave her a lift to the concert, you might want to skip it though.

    Althought this book wasn't one that kept me up late, I very much enjoyed the read. I really liked the different viewpoints of each member and the way they were arranged. Some incidents were looked at in extremely different ways buy a number of people. If you are offended by sex, drugs and language then this isn't the book for you. If you are looking for a window into the glam rock of the Crue then read away!!

    The rock bio by which all other rock bios should be judged.

    This book was terrific. I enjoyed it so much, I've read it three times, and each time, I've caught something I didn't really "get" the first few times around.

    The four members of Motley Crue, along with others who worked with/for them through the years, write this book together. Each person gets their own chapters, which works wonderfully. We get to hear their stories in their own voices - and it really gets amusing when they're telling the same story but from different points of view. For example, Mick Mars (who comes across as extremely intelligent and quite witty, in a dry, deadpan way) talks about how he used to drink vodka before the shows but the band always thought it was water. Later, in their chapters, the other band members talk about how Mick used to drink vodka before the shows, but thought he had everyone believing it was water, when they knew better the entire time.

    They cover everything: their childhoods, the beginning of the band, the shot to stardom, the groupies, the girlfriends, the booze, the drugs, and each other. They bare it all (even the absolutely digusting stuff - Ozzy Osbourne is, or was, quite obviously insane) and tell the truth - even when it comes to each other, and how they've felt about each other over the years. You can understand why they've all hated each other at some point, after learning more about them.

    Vince Neil comes across, at times, as a very self-serving, egotistical jackass...but the chapters in which he talks about his daughter's cancer are extremely touching.
    Nikki Sixx is actually quite smart and charming, when he's not all whacked out on heroin.
    Mick Mars, I mentioned above - very intelligent and quite funny, in his own way.
    Tommy Lee is Tommy Lee - sort of an airhead, the goofy "Yeah, dude!" guy you totally expect him to be.

    How these guys are still alive, I have no idea - but they're still rocking. They just played a show in my town a week ago.

    If you like Motley Crue at all - hell, even if you don't - pick this up. It's an incredible autobiography.

    EXCELLENT!! I am a huge fan of Motley Crue so naturally I had to read the book and it is one of my all time favorites (I love it so much I my mom found my a 1st ed. hardcover for my b-day one year). Some of the best parts aren't what the band members said, but the outsiders who were looking in. That being said Mick Mars surprisingly had some of the funniest things to say. If you've got some spare time and want some light reading with a little insanity thrown in, grab yourself a copy.

    Wow! Pretty explicit and that makes it very interesting! The taco story was outrageous and so is the rest of this book. I grew up in the seventies and eighties and I remember their music but thet weren't really my thing. This book was still hard to put down.
  • (5/5)
    One of my favorite autobiographies. They're not afraid to own up to the debauchery they indulged in, while also giving a behind the scenes look into personal tragedies. You'll never look at rock stars the same way again.

    This book chronicles the members of Motley Crue before, during and after their hayday. Sex, drugs and rock and roll, with all the dirty details.I could not put it down. Prepare to be disgusted and enthralled.
  • (2/5)
    I was not a fan of Motley Crue before I read the book and I like them even less now. But read the book cover to cover I did. I read Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries earlier and thought it was interesting (I like reading about recovery). Sixx came off as intelligent and sympathetic. I take that all back now. The Dirt exposed the band members, with the exception of Mick Mars, as hedonistic, irresponsible, womanizing addicts. The thought of Vince Neil getting a little jail time for killing a passenger while driving drunk is beyond me. Sure, he seems sorry that he killed his buddy, but he continues to go on with life drinking alcoholically as though the jail sentence meant nothing. The degree of drinking, drugging, womanizing and just plain bad behavior was so out of control that it was difficult to read. But read I did. I used to work for Frederick's of Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard back in the early 90s. Motley Crue girlfriends and wives (Pamela Anderson, Brandi Brandt) used to model for us and so the band would make their way into the corporate office for the photo shoots. I didn't pay much attention to them because I didn't like their music, image or reputation. I still don't but have some kind of weird fascination with them.
