Mötley Crüe have released a snippet from the audiobook edition of The Dirt, which you can check out below.
The unabridged version of the Crue’s best-selling 2001 publication The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band was released towards the end of June and has a listening time of 14 hours and 44 minutes.
The extract selected from the audiobook concentrates on drummer Tommy Lee and his early days when he would make as much noise as he could on an improvised drum kit made from pots and pans.
The audiobook of The Dirt was released through Harper Audio and Dey Street Books and features a cast including Sebastian York, Roger Wayne, Fred Berman, MacLeod Andrews and Hillary Huber.
The synopsis reads: “Fans have gotten glimpses into the band’s crazy world of backstage scandals, celebrity love affairs, roller-coaster drug addictions and immortal music in Mötley Crue’s The Dirt since 2001.
“The autobiography of Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil and Mick Mars features the full spectrum of sin and success, as well as a cautionary tale about the rock’n’roll lifestyle. Now, Harper Audio and Dey Street Books present The Dirt in audiobook format for the very first time.”
As uDiscover Music previously reported, the film version of The Dirt was released on Netflix earlier this year, with the band seeing sales and streams of their music increasing dramatically as a result. The 18-song soundtrack to The Dirt was released simultaneously, featuring a collection of Mötley Crüe classics that meaningfully underscore significant moments that shape the film.
The album includes 14 fan favorites and chart-topping tracks such as ‘Dr. Feelgood’ that charted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and the anthemic ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200, among others. Additional hits featured are ‘Kickstart My Heart’, ‘Same ‘Ol Situation (S.O.S.)’, ‘Shout At The Devil’ and the iconic ballad ‘Home Sweet Home’ that landed the band mainstream recognition.
