The Dirt By Motley Crue: Book Review (Part Two)

It’s Tuesday, which means it is time to wrap up The Dirt by Motley Crue. In case you missed it here is part one of The Dirt.

For tea this week I decided to keep it basic and stuck with Organic Black Tea by Lipton.


This tea is tasty, but be careful not to brew it too long; it is pretty strong and if brewed even a little bit too long develops a bitterness. I try to brew it around 4 to 5 minutes. After steeping I let the tea cool for a while and then add in some organic raw honey.


You can find this tea at Kroger, or if you are a big tea drinker like I am you can get it on Amazon…they have a set of 5 boxes with 72 tea bags in each: here.


Now, on to the book.

This half of the book was the most interesting in my opinion. I mean, that’s when Motley Crue went on tour with Ozzy Osbourne; during the tour Ozzy could be found snorting ants (yes, the insects) and even licking Nikki Sixx’s urine off of the pavement with a whole crowd watching. Um, gross!

Later, when Motley Crue was in England for their tour with Iron Maiden Nikki practically lived out a Beatles song (“She Came in Through the Bathroom Window”) To Nikki’s surprise, a fan climbed through Nikki’s hotel bathroom window…and well to keep this clean and PG I’ll just say that the girl got exactly what she came looking for, right there in the bathroom.

While on that same tour Motley Crue went into full rockstar mode and threw a TV and even a bed out the hotel window right on top of a few brand new cars parked below.


Vince Neil and his friend Razzle go on an alcohol run to keep a party going, but that results in a car accident, leaving Razzle dead.

Razzle’s death obviously messes with Vince, and messes up Motley Crue’s vibe for quite a long time. Around this time, Mick has been drinking heavily and in his drunken state decided to end his life. He walks into the ocean and lets the water over take him. When he later washes up on shore…Mick thinks he has died so, since he’s dead he walks through a glass window. This is the exact moment he realizes that he is in fact not dead at all, and just ended up almost knocking himself out.


Nikki’s drug use is starting to get out of control, which he realizes after he pees on Roger Taylor of Queen, as a result of his heroin haze.

Despite managers, friends and even a fortune teller telling Nikki he would be dead soon if he didn’t stop using…he continues to use. He dies shortly after, but only for a little while; Nikki is brought back to life and still manages to do heroin later that day. That is when he and the rest of the band decide it is finally time to clean up their act and all of them enroll in rehab to sober up.

I love this book. Honestly it doesn’t have any dull parts, every page is filled with crazy stories of things they went through as a band or as individuals. Definitely a page turner. Another thing I love is how the book is broken down in parts, and each member tell you the story of Motley Crue from their own perspective.

You can get the book here if you are interested. If you prefer hardcover like me you can get it here.

If books aren’t your thing you should watch the movie, The Dirt. It’s on Netflix. I gotta say though while I love them both…the book is so much better, seeing as it is able to go into so much more detail and doesn’t have to be edited; unlike the movie…in order to be fit for television.

See you here next Tuesday when we dive into the books written by the stars of The Office. I haven’t decided which one I want to start with yet, so if you have a suggestion, feel free to tell me which one you think I should read first.

  2. I didn’t know this book existed, but it’s sadly exactly how I thought their tours and life would be, glad they cleaned up

  3. I actually didn’t even know that this was a thing! I’m very intrigued to give this book a read now! And I love tea, never had it black though, so I’ll have to give that a go. Thanks for sharing this! It definitely sounds like you enjoyed it, and what’s not to love about a book that’s been described as a page turner?! Great post x
