I would add though, that the Dirt book is unique because I do not think you would have to be a fan of Crue to get into the book.
The Defender book, I believe after reading it that if you were not a fan most (80%?) of the book would bore the heck out of you. It is more about the band that we already know and is the "public story".
Find me a Preist book that is TRULY behind the scenes.
The Dirt is like an XXX rated "behind the music".
Not trying push Crue - Priest is my #1. Period.
But regardless of someones feeling about the band The Dirt is a good READ. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Senior Rocker from Wednesday, March 04, 2009 1:52:01 AM)

Thanks everyone for your input. I checked on this book when it 1st came out but thought it was too expensive & just forgot about it until I saw it in a book shop sale recently. I think you need to have some initial interest in a band & perhaps go & see them before buying a book & for this reason Tasnam despite your glowing report re the Motley Crue book, as a band I have never been a fan of them or their music, so don't think I would bother personally..
