After ten years in print Motely Crue's bestselling THE DIRT continues to set the bar for music biographies. A hugely bestselling cultural pheonomenon, this unbelievable story explores the rebellious lives of four of the most influential icons in American rock history.
Motley Crue was the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, pioneers of Hollywood glam, and the creators of MTV's first "power ballad." Their sex lives claimed celebrities from Heather Locklear to Pamela Anderson to Donna D'Errico. Their scuffles involved everyone from Axl Rose to 2LiveCrew. Their hobbies have included collecting automatic weapons, cultivating long arrest records, pushing the envelope of conceivable drug abuse, and dreaming up backstage antics that would make Ozzy Osbourne blanch with modesty.
Brilliantly designed and provocatively written with the help of six-time New York Times bestselling author Neil Strauss, THE DIRT remains the most exciting and insightful look into the lives of the Crue ever written.
