Non-Stop, Over-The-Top Great Book - And I'm Not Even a Die-Hard Motley Crue Fan!
July 16, 2018
I reluctantly ordered and then read this book, based on the recommendation of a co-worker who told me over and over how good it was and how much I would love. So I ordered it and it sat in my magazine rack at home until I reluctantly picked it up and started reading it on a rainy Saturday afternoon. After one chapter, I was HOOKED and could not put it down.
I was never a big Motley Crue fan. I liked their radio hits, but that's as deep as it went for me. But these guys tell their stories in a way that has you rooting for them and they almost make you feel sorry for them - even though they are treating women like crap, drinking like fish, doing more drugs in a day than most people could handle in a month, stealing each other's girlfriends, you name it. There are specific stories that will stay with me forever - Ozzy Osbourne snorting ants out of a sidewalk crack at a hotel is one of those stories.
The Motley Crue guys are non-stop crazy, non-stop over the top and just plain NON-STOP. I had this book read in two days (and it's a THICK book) and was sad when it ended. I wanted more. Reading this book didn't make me more of a Motley Crue fan but it was the most entertaining and interesting book I've read in a long time and one that will stay on my bookshelf for years to come. I highly recommend it to all Motley Crue fans and fans of good rock and roll stories.
