๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 


I just watched The Dirt on Netflix and read the book quite some time ago.   Nikki Sixx's heroin addiction is touched on but not fully explored in The Dirt, but this puts his downward spiral on full-display.   With Nikki narrating his own diary entries, this played out exceptionally well, coming from him, it feels so real, raw and completely compelling.

Do you have to love Motley Crue to get into this, no, but it probably helps?  I don't necessarily love the Crue, but I really like them, I've seen them in concert even...and I do love 80's music in general, especially from those infamous hair bands.  It's crazy to see how rampant cocaine and heroin were back then, especially when you're famous and so many people think you can do no wrong.

This edition that I listened to is a Tenth Anniversary edition with a forward and afterward from Nikki Sixx about how releasing this book has affected him, all very interesting...and apparently, there are addicts who say this book has changed their lives for the better and helped them to break their habit.  If that's true then this book is completely worthwhile.
