Did you like the book? I haven't read it, but I've read some glowing reviews about it.

The Dirt - Motley Crue

I've had this one on my book stand for ages and decided to pick it up against my better judgement. 
This book is disgusting; gentle; hearbreaking; incredibly human and impossible to put down! I got to experience in particular sides of Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx that were very down to earth. I think that this book is a gem and should be read by any music lover.

I wept  when Neil wrote about the death of his baby girl. I don't know how in the world anyone can recover after such a loss. That chapter affected me in a very deep way.
Tommy, well, he's always been a firm favorite of mine purely because of how energetic and sort of innocent he is too all of life. When you get to read his sections he's very straight forward and comes across as a very lovable but missunderstood person. 
Mick was the star of the book for me though. I really grew to like him through this read.

I am glad that I was able to offer you the information. The book is very good. It offers some great insights.

I appreciate that you care about manners. As you mentioned, ours is a world that does not value civility as we once did. Those on this site that know me will tell you that I champion manners and good behavior constantly. I do not believe that rudeness is "cool" and I treat people with dignity and respect. I also eschew profanity, as I find it incredibly distasteful in a public forum. So much of what we see and hear today is just disgusting and it is packaged up as "entertainment". Worse yet is the terrible way people treat one another!

It is tremendously encouraging to find a new member such as yourself that shares in these beliefs. I do hope you will become a regular here and share in the cause of bringing a bit of class and kindness to our Board.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by caronctm from Saturday, October 18, 2008 12:35:09 AM)

Deep Freeze, I agree.
 I haven't read this book you talked about, but I am so glad that you mentioned it and the topic of manners/civility. I am also greatful that there is someone out there who thinks the same thing that I do and says it. 
It seems to be a past notion, civility and manners. We have gone so far from operating out of any thought beyond ourselves, in this "me", "have to have it now", "get out of my way", short attention spanned generation.
Example/true story: I was on the phone with a cust. serv. rep., trying to solve a problem caused by a cog in the big corporate machine(a stupid, rude, condecending, moron at a major utility).  After my re-telling of the problem and informing this rep. of what needed to be done, and what I was going to do, she was able to give me some good news from her manager as to how they could help. I thanked her and moved towards ending the call. She stopped me and said how she would have been furious if the situation had happened to her, and she was amazed that I remained so calm. I replied that since I new that she didn't cause the problem, nor had she treated me badly, that I had no need to take out my anger on her. She then said that she would use my civility as an example for herself in the future. She truly was stunned that I could treat her with any respect. 
I am stunned that more people don't seem to have a clue of how to treat others,  much less an understanding of what it does to our society as a whole. What happened to basic respect? Have we forgotten, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"?
