Waiting on Wednesday: The Dirt by Motley Crue (The Anniversary Edition)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Celebrate thirty years of the world’s most notorious rock band with the deluxe collectors’ 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, rollercoaster 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. Even fans already familiar with earlier editions of the bestselling exposÉ will treasure this gorgeous deluxe edition.  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.”

I have previously had two copies of this book, both *walked* away.  This one won't leave my house!


  1. I won't let my copy leave the house, either. Those Crue boys... always wandering.

  2. Love the cover of the anniversary edition, though I've never read the other edition before.

  3. Oh wow...a really special cover! :)
