Author(s): Tommy Lee
Motley Crue's bestselling "The Dirt" - penned with collaborator extraordinaire Neil Strauss - set a new bar for rock 'n' roll memoirs. This book covers various topics on Motley Crue - the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, and the creators of MTV's first power ballad.
Motley Crue, with members Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars, released seven consecutive Billboard Top 20 albums in the 1980s. Over 30 years, they have sold millions of concert tickets, toured internationally, made countless TV appearances, and generally wreaked havoc all over the world. Neil Strauss, the bestselling author and New York Times and Rolling Stone writer, also collaborated on bestselling memoirs from Marilyn Manson (The Long Hard Road Out of Hell), Jenna Jameson (How to Make Love Like a Porn Star), and Dave Navarro (Don't Try This at Home), as well as his own massive bestsellers The Game, Rules of the Game, and Emergency. In 2011 It Books will publish a collection of his wildest interviews, Everyone Loves You When You're Dead.
