PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds cool to us and we’ve already rallied behind the Official Trailer for the film which I hope that you diehard Crue fans saw on THIS LINK. If not, please take a look and chime in appropriately on it if you are so compelled.
When I began hearing rumblings about screeners for the upcoming Motley Crue biopic “The Dirt” hitting some reviewers desks, I was wondering when the rest of the world would be receiving the films first trailer. Fortunately for all of us that trailer is here now and ready for you to rock along to. Oh and before you ask, I didn’t get one of these screeners myself so I was as eager to see any footage as the most ardent of Crue fans. Let’s check it out.
Title: “The Dirt: Confessions Of The Worlds Most Dangerous Band” Author: Motley Crue with Neil Strauss Publisher: Harper Collins Publishing Release Date: 7/1/2002 Genre: Hard Rock Rating: 10/10
If you were to take all of the musical tomes available today you will find that this one will stand out substantially higher than the rest of them. It makes sense when you consider the often turbulent history of Motley Crue themselves for as a band their music was as volatile as their offstage personalities. Truly Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and Mick Mars were Rock Stars to the very essence of the word. By now it’s safe to assume that most fans of the band have seen the VH1 episode of “Behind The Music” which delved into their chaotic history but since it’s only a one-hour program how can it do anything more than touch upon some of the most famous points. The 448 page book is broken up into chapters that are lined out by each individual member. You might start off with Tommy speaking on something and then it catches Sixx around the same topic and so forth. This made it a fascinating read as it came off much like an in-depth interview as well as a biography of the notorious musicians. I found that with the group having such a level of input into the content of the book that this made the read far more gripping and pure. When you reach the more poignant moments such as when Vince’s daughter succumbed to cancer it pulls at the very heart strings and you will find yourself reaching for the Kleenex. The book begins historically at the earliest recollection and leads up to the actions of only a couple of months before print of the book. It even features sections by their replacement members and this makes it more on target. Everything you had ever heard about Motley Crue the band and the members is in here, the good times and the bad, the lives and the deaths that surrounded them and when you close it you will wonder how any of them are still alive.
