It is no secret that I am a big fan of Motley Crue. I have all of their official released books as you can see from some of my previews reviews. However this book was a little dissappointing. Aside from a few new things and getting to hear from Vince’s wives, most of the book ive read about it before.
Vince comes off as such an asshole and ego maniac, that most of what he talks about makes you think “what the fuck is he talking about?” He talks so bad about the other guys in Motley Crue that not even halfway through the book i almost put it down for good. It is no wonder why he says Motley Crue is a business and not a friendship. Neil openly says how “those guys are not my friends, they are not trustworthy”, well i wonder why. Also i felt he was very repetitive all throughtout the book, saying the same things over and over…
There is a reason why not many people who were or are involved in his life declined to contribute anything to the book. When you have an ego that big and you think youre better than everybody, or you blame everything on somebody else, and you do not take responsability for you own actions, well i think some people are gonna turn their back. That was another thing that i saw all through this book. Vince is always blaming in mistakes on somebody else, man up and take responsability.
The chapters about his daughter are the best thing about this book. You can really see how honest Vince is when he is talking about his daughter.
All in all is a decent read if you are a fan of Motley Crue, if you’re not or you havent read The Dirt or any of the other books by the guys from Motley, then you wont really understand this book or their history.
