Description

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."

  • (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'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.
