Hackskeptic’s Must Have Rock Biographies: The Dirt (Mötley Crüe)


The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band

I have to confess to have never been a fan of Mötley Crüe, however “The Dirt” is still one of my all time favourite rock reads. The band’s accounts of their debauched career can be sobering at times, and yet almost always extremely funny. It’s a detailed view of what happens when a bunch of dumb dudes make a lot of money, and then proceed to piss it down the toilet. Netflix are apparently planning to turn it into a movie.

Chapter one preface…

“of and concerning the first house, wherein Tommy is caught with his knickers down and baubles in a hole. Nikki is set on fire, to the eminent displeasure of the carpet. Vince covets narcotics on the person of David Lee Roth, and Mick maintains a righteous and bemused distance.”
