What an amazing book. It is truly a miracle that Motley Crue is still alive. The level of debauchery is unequalled. The drugs, sex, alcohol and all around self destruction was strangely addictive, no pun intended.
One after the other, each band member describes their insanity of growing up. One by one the tail of the self destructive activity is described in detail throughout the book.
Mick Mars is a deep individual. His view on death is extremely interesting. He says that when people die and see a tunnel and a light at the end, it's actually the birth canal and the light is the lights in the hospital room. He says that when the person does not continue through the tunnel, it represents a still birth. I think I could get along well with Mick.
Vince's daughter's death was so difficult to read. It literally brought tears to my eyes. I could see how this life would be a spiral AFTER her death, but does not account for what he did theretofore.
I am going to watch the Netflix movie now. I refused to watch it until I read this book. Now I am ready. If you are a fan you MUST read this book.
In 2015, I bought my wife tickets to Motley Crue. They were amazing seats. I had a clear view of Nikki Sixx, although this picture does not do it justice. Always loved Motley Crue, and I always knew they were crazy, but did not know a lot of the stories.
