Editor reviews

Mötley Crüe is one of the most notorious rock bands to ever ravage the earth. Their on-stage antics and backstage scandals are among the wildest in rock folklore. In their outrageous, not-for-the-faint-hearted autobiography The Dirt, the band tells those stories from their own perspective, resulting in a saga that will stay with you like the ringing in your ears after an unforgettable gig.

Cassandra Campbell and Fred Berman have won a trove of awards for their acclaimed narration and they join Sebastian York, broadcast journalist Roger Wayne and New York Times best-selling author Erin Hunter to form an elite narrative team to take you through the highs and lows of rock stardom.

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."

Thoroughly gritty

The voice acting is excellent and the whole story is put together in such a great way with chapters intersplicing accounts from individual band members, managers and others. It’s put together similar to the NOFX biography but the stories are far, far more outrageous and extreme.

Shocking

The first few chapters of this book are truly shocking.I'm not sure which was more disgusting, the groups treatment of their girl "fans" or the girls themselves that allowed it to happen.Some of it beggars belief, it is so depraved.I'm not a Heavy Metal fan, but even if I was I don't know how listening to this would give me any pleasure. But then again, that obviously isn't the intention.
The most amazing fact, after completing it, is that any of them are still alive !!

Never a fan, but woah, what a ride

I recently watched dirt, which was fun & decided to hit the audio book up, ..excellent listen which even my non music orientated wife found herself listening too.
Another great audio book to dip into whilst doing hated chores👍

If you liked this try the beasties boys next time... Ideal for zoning out & getting those jobs done on your own whilst plugged into headphones.
