Publisher's Summary

Now 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."

Interesting but monotone narration

The narration was enough to make me fall asleep. Never changed regardless of who was talking.

1000x more detail than the movie

*The movie was a sample of Crue info so please, do yourself a solid and actually read/listen to the book.
Just a heads up, it is raw and some pretty serious stuff happens in the book. Detailed drug use, admitted rape, death, violence amongst men and women, etc.
I read this book like 10 years ago but I wanted to listen to it as I have issues with reading comprehension and I skip stuff without realizing it. Even if you read it and don't have learning issues like myself, I still recommend it again. While it isn't their voices on the book, they did a pretty good job picking good narrators.

The reader did a good job in the Skylar chapter and Tommy's narrator did really well with Tommy's jail chapter. They were able to channel the guys pretty well.

If you are a Crue fan or even if not, it is a really good book. My only qualm is that there isn't much Mick in it. But Mick is a quite guy so I am not surprised that there isn't a ton.
All in all, I love it and glad I got the audiobook

Couldn't put it down

I really liked the story and the format of the book. It was different, in that the story is told. You hear each band members point of view and recollection of various memories.
Narrators were great, you could tell there were four different voices but they did sound very similar. I kept looking at the chapter name to see whose point of view I was listening to. If I had my wish, I'd choose more distinct voices.
I've never seen the show and not a big Motley Crüe fan BUT I really enjoyed this book and finished it in 3 days. It was hard to put down/away.
Now I'm going to watch the show and probably hate it...haha

Excellent

At first I have to admit I wish it would have been narrated by the band themselves but the chosen narrators did an excellent job! I will definitely be listening again!!

Crazy and Disturbing.

I have been listening to Motley Crue since they came out in the late 80s and have seen them three times in concert. I watched the movie on Netflix and couldn't wait to listen to the book. The book gave an interesting insite into their childhood and adult lives as well as that of the band BUT I have to say that I was disturbed by some of the stories. An unreported rape was mentioned - seriously WTF. And Vince Neil only did 20 days in jail for vehicular manslaughter not to mention the passengers of the other car suffered severe injuries. I'll give them 5 stars for honesty.

Better than the movie

The movie is way too short to tell the real history about the most infamous band in the world. And to hearing the voice make a lot better than reading.
